FEBRUARY SELF-PORTRAIT: AND SO IT GROWS

So, at the beginning of February I went in for “a little trim” to my newly acquired short style and came out…. looking like a boy. It wasn’t my hairdresser’s fault. At some point during our conversation I had explained how I didn’t want to be in every 3 three weeks and so I think she took that to mean that we needed to go shorter. ┬áMuch shorter. YIKES.

Next thing I know she flips the chair around and I wanted to scream. Thankfully, I’m a very internalize-any-extreme-emotions kind of girl and so I just took a deep breath and reminded myself that, yes, it was still hair. And, though it would take some growing, that I would – in fact – get over it.

Thus, I title last month’s self-portrait “And So It Grows” as I spent the whole month wondering how long it would take before I didn’t mind my hair again (and I still ponder this question every few days, though I hate it much less now than I did four weeks ago). This pose is perhaps one of the most awkward, and not particularly flattering, but – hey – I actually like the way my hair looks in it. Maybe that’s because you can’t really see it?

Live and learn, I suppose. Live and learn.

Have you ever had a haircut that just went horribly totally wrong? Tell me I am not alone in this!

Kelly Rowles - First of all, I have always been a huge fan of this haircut. You totally rock it.

Secondly, I think this photo of yourself is super cute. The pose is cute and different, and it works for you. :) March 10, 2012 – 6:16 PM

Dee Nikolaidis - I think you look adorable. Of course you are hiding the length of your hair- but with your sweet face you would look good bald. Very cute pic ! <3March 11, 2012 – 11:20 AM

Isabel - I think you look super cute with your new do! You totally rock it ;) March 11, 2012 – 11:50 AM

ETC - Too cute! And umm….you know my history with “too short” haircuts…. :) March 11, 2012 – 11:51 AM

Erinn - You are crazy! a good crazy :) I love your hair cut, you pull it off brilliantly and your gorgeous face is perfectly complimented by it. But I do know how frustrating it is to hear people tell you everything is ok when you feel like it isn’t! I cut my hair once, and someone told me I looked like ABs little sister (she was 12, I was 21).March 11, 2012 – 12:15 PM

Mismikado - I think it looks very cute on you! I once ended up with the worst haircut ever and it was clearly the hairdresser’s fault. It was a standard layered cut that I had had done many times before and even had a photo. But I went to someone new and I immediately started worrying when she kept repeating “Your hair is so thick!” Anyways my hair was suppose to be gradual layers to shoulder length but she managed to cut the crown of my head to be only 3 inches long with the rest being shoulder length. It was a nightmare! O_OMarch 11, 2012 – 2:03 PM
