hey shorty

Embrace Messy Hair - Lino Print

having short hair has opened a new set of insecurities. let's discuss this.
not since i was a little chubby kid, have i had short hair. 

at that time, it was acceptable, past maybe four or five you are in that zone of, "is it a boy or a girl" to "maybe she cut her own hair, " or "maybe she is a tomboy" to growing older to "maybe she likes girls" to "maybe she is just really artistic or really mature" attracting the odd or artistic only to other stereotypes i shouldn't write so i don't offend people.

for me now i am fifty fifty. i either love it or dread walking outside.  i feel stripped of my femininity most times. 
oddly enough, i have trimmed it myself since it was first cut in november so the sides would be even and less thick.

since i'm stuck with this one for a little while, i couldn't help but loose myself in ideas for short cuts or those who wear them with ease or where it's socially acceptable...

i miss having long hair.
ovs short hair.
i won't cut it anymore and letting the natural color grow in...
to get there and fast, i am taking biotin everyday and went into sephora to ask about their hair growing pills... the girl filled me in with this little homemade trick for WOMEN only...
mix a crushed whole month's pack of birth control with your shampoo and let it sit on your warm head for a few minutes.

i studied up on it and it has been proven to work. who knows really though.
so what did i do?

i tried it tonight. 
it better be longer tomorrow, or else... 
tegan and sara comments are bound to continue.

I don't have the problem of hair growing, but my problem is my hair is so think and curly that I have basically only had to hairstyles my who life. A bob or long. You are lucky that you can wear something so cute.

ha ha. you are hilarious. I like katie holmes hair cut... that one is cute. I am thinking of going short for the summer... not short short but you know, the typical jennifer aniston shoulder length cut. think about it -- then when i am ready - you will be my stylist! also - jack really needs a hair cut... wanna do it? i have tried... but it always looks terrible and i end up buzzing it. but the last time that happened, he cried - because he didn't want it buzzed. poor kid. love you tons!

p.s. you always look feminine. like a sexy feminine. love ya!

love this!

1) I just cut my hair and I hate it so this was a nice boost to making me feel okay about it

2) I am growing out my hair now because I miss when it was longer. My hair used to be a lot longer when I graduated high school. Ever since it has been short

3) You make short hair look great! I envy you!

4) love you!
