As I've mentioned before, I have great hair. This weekend, I had a little fun with it...
I started by putting it up into little ponytails then cutting them all off for a chunky, edgy, spiky look. Surprisingly, this worked pretty well.
But I got to thinking... my hair has been about this short before... why not take it to the next level? I have always been a bit intrigued by the thought of going super duper short... So with the help of my lover, I made the plunge.
Why? Aside from just feeling up to experimenting, I have been feeling a growing desire to go back to my natural color, and embrace my patches of prematurely gray hairs. I've always got a kick out of coloring my hair, I have been fiery red, deep auburn, had blond highlights, been inky black, and, of course, all manner of lovely browns. My own true color is something along the lines of a ferrous metal (ie, iron) and now it is liberally sprinkled with silver especially over my ears. As the distance between my last application of warm brown henna hair coloring has lengthened exposing those iron and gray roots, instead of feeling the need to run to the store for more of that lovely herbal hair stainer I was instead feeling more and more of an urge to cut off all those tinted locks and get back to my roots (so to speak). This was not a spur of the moment thing... I have been contemplating this for several weeks (that counts as pre-meditated, right?)
Anyhow, well see how this goes... particularly as I approach the awkward fuzzy in-between stage of this buzz. But, for now, I am really enjoying this zero maintenance summer haircut!
(And you should have seen the look my bishop gave me on Sunday!)
