This post is mostly for my mom because we are still butting heads about cutting off my long hair.

The last time I cut off my hair my boyfriend at the time hated it, so obviously I hated it. I told my mom and my stylist to never let me cut it off again. Well that guy isn’t around anymore and he never will be. So I’ve liked my long hair and I look good but I’m ready to let it go.

I understand my mom; I’ve worked to grow it out, I wanted it long, If I don’t like it I’ll have to live with it for a long time. But I won’t have to deal with it forever. Hair grows back. I have a tattoo, but not a haircut?

I’ve worked hard over the summer to keep my hair healthy, but still it’s a ton of work. Straightening it, drying it, putting it up, worrying about moisture, split ends, shedding.

It will be less costly and more effortless to take care of. Plus I really really think it’ll look good. I am always looking for ways to drastically change my hair and I’ve fallen in love with the idea of it being short.

And if I hate it, if it looks horrible, if it sucks then every single day that its growing back out, Mom, you can say I told you so and never let me live it down.
