Today I made my way to Hype Coiffure and had a professional shape and refine my cut. What do you think?
It is super duper short but I think I love it. I love having hair that air dries in less than five minutes. My hair is also very soft- such a switch from the dredlocks! While my head feels bizarrely light and I catch myself flicking hair back that isn’t there, I don’t miss my dredlocks or length AT ALL. This may be because I’m no stranger to extremely short hair – I had this exact same haircut back in 2001.
|Me and Liebling’s hair- almost the same length!|
What does Liebling think, you ask? As he’s a fan of long hair, this is not his fave hairstyle. But as he is lovely, supportive, and knows that I haven’t changed just because my hairstyle has, things are peachy keen on the home front. He’s reassured me a zillion times that I am still beautiful. That being said, while it is important to me that he likes the way I look, I know that I am happy within myself and 100% confident about my decision to cut my hair. Funnily enough, while he is a lover of long locks, he’s been randomly palming my head- he’s fascinated with the spongy feel of my loose hair since he’s only known me with dredlocks!
So there you have it. My hair update!
Have you ever done something drastic with your hair? What, why, and what was the reaction of your friends and loved ones?
