hairy situation

I just hacked 8" off my hair.

It is crooked and chunky and generally a mess, which is exactly what I figured it would be when I finished. But you see, I am indecisive. I've been playing with the idea of getting my hair cut for months, but kept chickening out. Today, during a moment of resolve, knowing that my resolve would dissolve long before I made it to a hair salon, I made a move that leaves me committed to a new hairdo, despite any misgivings that may arise in the meantime.

Pity I have to trick myself into doing what I want isn't it?


  1. Oh Erin! We are so alike it isn't even funny. I'd have to do the same thing in order to commit to a change. :)

    I can't tell you how many times I've made an appointment at a salon with the intention of getting bold, only to walk in and say "Just a trim, please."

    The only time I actually gave into my wild urge is when I was pregnant. Blame it on hormones!

  2. lol...what's the deal with the hair? I just cut off another 3 inches AND changed the color!! I'll post before and after pics.

    I wanna see the new do!!

  3. "I can shave your head in three minutes", said Ms Finch.

    "Okay let's go," I said, stupidly.

    She was right!

    First time in sixteen years I had a haircut. It was almost to my knees. That was almost five years ago.

    I don't do haircuts anymore.
    "Against my religion," I tell people.
