short hair

I forgot to post yesterday. I feel like it was a bit of a frantic day but I am kind of blanking on what I did. I know I took a kid to the dentist but other than that I am drawing a blank. As my father says, it’s hell getting old.

I am not sure I have much to post about today either. I got a somewhat drastic haircut this morning, which was very exciting. I was considering getting an undercut, kind of like Rhianna. In case you don’t know, I don’t look anything like Rhianna but whenever I search Google images for short curly haircuts of any type, there is invariably a picture of her and that is the cut that I want. I do think we have similar amount of curl in our hair a lot of the time (but I think hers might be more manufactured curl because other times her hair is much curlier than mine). The morale of the story is: I want to look like Rhianna. Really, who wouldn’t? She’s gorgeous! I didn’t get the undercut (either in the picture or anything close to it) and instead left the back and sides a bit longer. Maybe I’ll be braver later and go for that.

I would share a picture of the haircut I actually got but I took one shot to share with a friend today and but it’s not my favorite. I did post it on Facebook so that my family would know what to expect when I reappeared but I’m not ready to share it here. My younger son was at school when all of this happened, so he didn’t see it and he was a bit shocked by my hair. This evening he introduced me to someone (someone I already knew, for the record) by saying, “my mom just got a haircut, she doesn’t usually look like that.” Hopefully he’ll get used to it!

And then I’ll go out and get the even more drastic undercut. But I’ll warn him first.

    Congratulations on your short haircut! (And on shocking your son…I loved his aside to his friend.) I’ve been thinking about getting mine chopped dramatically, too. I want something that’s flattering, requires minimal upkeep, and defies Western conventions of feminine beauty. I actually Googled that (“haircuts for women who want to defy Western conventions of feminine beauty”); it was about as helpful as one might expect.

      Sounds like the holy grail of haircuts! I had to google that myself and one of the images was an older woman with wrinkles and long curly grey hair, still looking glamorous. I think she might be who I want to be when I grow up. 🙂
