This one's going to be short & sweet. Which coincidentally matches the haircut I so desperately want! See?
Here are my 2 biggest reasons for not giving into my desire for short hair:
1. I'm scared it will look like poop on me.
2. My husband won't like it.
Allow me to elaborate on reason numero dos. See, my husband is a very sweet and ridiculously patient man who puts up with a lot. He never makes demands and is always supportive of me & the crazy things I do. He also knows me too well. Which is why he will not say that I can't cut my hair. Because he knows that if he were to forbid it, I would cut my damn hair myself & leave it in a pretty little bag w/ a bow on his pillow w/ a note that says "suck it". I'm just that kind of girl. He has said he is not a fan of short hairstyles on women, so I know he is secretly wishing I will change my mind about this haircut. Alas, he isn't so lucky. It's pretty much all I think about lately.
Here are my 2 biggest reasons for wanting to give into my desire for short hair:
1. When cut right, it's cute.
2. It's easy to manage.
You see, you few folks who read this blog, I am what you call "busy". Constantly. All the time. I'm also not real motivated to do anything w/ my hair that requires more than 5-10 minutes. Those minutes are precious and hardly worth wasting on my nappy mop of frizz. Rubberbands are my best friend. I tie my crazy hair back & forget about it. Until I look in the mirror & realize how sloppy & tired it makes me look. Also, it accentuates my enormous forehead, which I inherited from my father. I don't mind the forehead, except when my hair is in a ponytail.
My biggest conflict over this haircut can be boiled down to the hubby factor, though. The fact that he is so sweet & does not say anything disparaging about my fancy for pixie cuts makes me want to reward him by not chopping my hair off. It's the least I could do, right? Equally as important in this decision is the fact that I hate looking like this:
But I never have the time to make myself look like this:
