When I was little my mother would cut my hair in a short page boy cut… - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure

When I was little my mother would cut my hair in a short page boy cut and I would always beg her to let me grow it out. She'd reply 'You can have long hair when you are old enough to take care of it yourself.'

You'd better believe that when I was judged 'old enough' I took care of my hair without any help, for fear she's cut it all off. I mean, she never did, but I never gave her reason to, either.

But that bit of history means I am a little biased about long hair.


Yet, for all that, when I sat down in my hair dresser's chair today I decided, seemingly out of the blue, that I wanted it cut short today. Not just short, but specifically something of a bob. Now, realistically I have been thinking about a bob cut for... I don't know, a decade or more? I guess today I told myself 'fish or cut bait and stop wimping out.'

Thus I now have a bob hair cut; slightly longer in front than in back and I LOVE IT. It bounces and looks just so, so cute!


No, no pictures - I really hate taking pictures of myself. Sorry.

I got tired of looking like a

scattered irish setter, so I went to the Fantastic Sam's near where I used to live and told the lady to give me a bob. "I trust you AND my hair grows fast."

As it is, I'm going to try to go in often enough to keep it in shape, it's affordable.

And in the process I determined that one can: get nails done, get one's eyebrows 'threaded' (tori explained it to me, owww!), a tan and several varieties of beauty supplies. One cannot get one's hair cut.

At least I was able to hit Target and TRADER JOE'S!
