So, I know it’s hard to solicit hair advice from blogger friends when you have no idea what I look like. But here it goes…
I have very thick, curly, somewhat coarse hair. I’m Italian, and I have that kind of hair that will always frizz unless I soak it in Product. Currently, I wear a style that looks like this:
The pros: I think it looks good when I actually take the time to style it. It is generally low-maintenance enough when I wash my hair to style it nicely.
The cons: in the winter, I always have to straighten it because I have to wear a hat outside. If I wear it curly (which is easier) I have to re-wet and scrunch it every morning and washing it every day just dries it out – so not an option. When I’m in surgery and I wear a scrub cap – that’s the end of my hair for the day… It has to stay covered up. It is too short to put in a ponytail, and it would take a lot of effort to re-style it in the middle of the day.
So, I’ve been toying with the idea of cutting my hair super short… Like, this short:
My hair appointment is tonight, and of course, I’m getting cold feet. What if if looks bad? What if I hate it? I know it’s hair and it will grow back eventually… But then, what if it is amazing?! What if it’s the best thing ever and it first into my lifestyle so well? These are so many things that I just don’t know.
The last time I made a decision in my life (and it was a bigger decision than a haircut) I think fear and comfort dominated a lot of the decision making process. Maybe this time I can let fear and uncertainty take a back seat and just take the plunge…
What would you do? Have you ever cut your hair drastically and either loved it or hated it?
