I have flirted with the idea of long hair as a solution to everyday hair-ease. I would never have to cut it and always put in a top-knot, right? But, then came the annoying washing of the long hair (even though I also played with the no poo method). The truth is, long hair requires diligence, trims, and blow dryers. So I have returned to my true state of being: short hair.
Not only have I gone short, I am hoping for a Robyn like look that dominates every lesbian bar in Brooklyn.
I took myself down to the barbershop where my husband gets his hair cut and asked them to make me look like I am in a boy band.
The problem with this hairdo is that I will have to cut it once a month. But at barbershop prices, this is possible.
I am returning to my true roots, established by my mother who ingeniously mandated a bowl cut throughout my entire childhood. She didn’t want to brush my hair, and I don’t want to either.
