Please don't write to me about DNA and chromosomes. That is not where this blog is going. I have big poofy hair. I used to hate it and then, sometime in my late teens/early 20's I started to love it. I wanted it to be as big and curly (but not furballish) as possible. I like to get in blown out when I have it cut just for a change and I know it looks neater that way but, I for some reason think that my big hair gives me strength and power. I mean, I am a distant relative of Samson, aren't I? Right now my hair is long, long, long and not looking to good. So today I have to go cut some of it off. I am guessing about 3 inches. It is causing me hair anxiety. Here are some hair thoughts:
1. The bigger the hair, the bigger my head which means my body is smaller by comparison. Therefore, cutting inches of hair off will automatically put on at least 5 pounds.
2. The last time I had short hair was about 10 years ago. I broke up with some dumbass, I mean man, I mean a mean man, and somehow that made me want to cut my hair up to my ears. (Question 1) Why do women do this??? The hair cut was pretty cute, I think. It also was BRIGHT red (another hair obsession that I had to eventually give up but still miss). Well, there I was thinking my do was pretty awesome when a male friend pulled me aside and, out of the kindness of his heart, told me that if I ever wanted to get married, I should grow my hair out because that's what men want. (Question 2) Why do people say stupid crap like this? I am sure that people have hair preferences but I think that is a bit extreme and not the nicest thing to say to a single girl.
3. A women's hair sets her apart. I certainly feel like mine sets me apart. I know I complain about the Jewfro sometimes but really it is a large (sometimes very large) part of me. It is also an amazingly accurate rain and humidity predictor.
4. By the way, in the "Who Got It Right?" section of the before mentioned People StyleWatch, Sally Hershberger gave a thumbs up to Taylor Swift's man made, curling ironed, fake curls and said Mya's was "way too frizzy (which it isn't and what's wrong with a little frizz anyway?) and lacks polish." I of course, like Mya's way better. Her hair looks like what I am always trying to get mine to look like.
Hair appointment at 4....hurray!
