I haven’t had a haircut short enough to show my ears and neck since I was about twelve years old. This is because I fully bought into the myth that if I had a big body and little hair, I would look like I had a pinhead.
Truth is, I like short hair and always have. I like the breeze against my neck, I like to show off my piercings, I like how quickly it dries, I like how easy it is to style and how little bleach and dye is needed to color it. Long hair is beautiful, but when mine was long it took a lot of time, work and skill that I just don’t possess to make it look nice, so over the years my length has been creeping shorter, and shorter, and shorter still.
Yesterday I got it all cut off.
I love this.
