Hair 2 days ago..gone yesterday

Most of you have probably already seen I've cut my hair from Facebook. I did. Ya know..myself. I don't know how it happened! I went to go take a shower yesterday and got this brilliant idea that cutting more then a foot off of my hair would be a *great* idea! You live in Hawaii! Your hair's pretty much up all the time anyway! Come onnnn..it's JUST hair! It grows back! Be a sport!

So when I got out of the shower and combed my hair, I grabbed the hair cutting scissors (at least I didn't use kitchen scissors this time!) and snipped a huge chunk. It was then that I sort of regretted it. But, there just wasn't any turning back. There was no hairstyle that could be pulled off with that kind of damage. Not one I could pull off, anyway. So after doing what I could on my own, I called Orion upstairs. He probably thought he did something because he had no idea what I was doing in there. He looked a little surprised but evened the back out for me and when he was done he simply asked "did something traumatic happen to you recently? Is that why you cut your hair off?" and I laughed..but no, nothing traumatic happened. I was simply bored. He said he'd gather up some cash so I can go to a real salon that is not my bathroom and get a real style instead of the home-done look I'm rocking right now.


I just had SO much hair! I tried to keep it. But it just took too much shampoo and conditioner and general time to deal with. So it mostly ended up being pulled back and it's like..what's the point in having *so* much hair (it was probably 5 or 6 inches away from my bum..and it's *thick* so I mean it when I say there was tons there). It took 2 1/2 boxes of dye every time! It was just too much. Too much of everything. While I miss the long braids Orion would do..and the long chunky curls..it's nice to have all of that weight taken off. It's nice to not spend so much time on something that'll get pulled back anyway.






I feel all young again haha..except that I'm starting to look older :(

I think it's darling! I can't believe how brave you are though, cutting your hair yourself as you do.

Good job, Abs!

I think it's totally cute too! I have been known to do similar with my own hair. I don't think anything quite as drastic, but I have trimmed it several times on my own.

It's gorgeous! I bet you felt lightheaded for awhile afterwards.

Whenever I mention cutting my hair, YogaNana objects. So, Denver people, be prepared for longish hair when you see me this week.

Look at how beautiful your eyes are! Wow, speaking as a man, the only way I know how to speak actually. I'm all impressed. That Orion the Hero is one lucky guy.

Love,
Dad
