Then it started growing out. And it annoyed the hell outta me.
I'm not the best with doing anything to hair other than washing it and (sometimes) brushing it. Having to use a straightening iron to curl under the ends of my 'do was frustrating, and my hair is so thick it never worked anyway. As a result, after a certain stage my hair was all flippy and somehow mullet-y.
At the risk of sounding big-headed, everyone has complimented my short hair. And it's grown on me, no pun intended. With my hair already short, I figured I might as well try a lot of styles now, instead of having to find the balls to do a drastic change again. So I found an even shorter 'do I liked, made an appointment, and chopped my locks again.
The back is kinda boy-short.
The verdict? LOVE IT. I always thought I needed long hair to look feminine, since I'm taller and tomboy-ish. I was scared short hair would make my wide hips look even wider - and maybe it does, but I don't care. I love having my hair short. It's easier, and my art director says it looks sassy. Any time the word sassy is used, you can count me in.
