When I get bored, it's obvious. And since my recent decision not to go back to school this year, I'm antsy as ever. I had to turn off my internal countdown til the day school started, and I'm already going crazy. I've had many different ways to deal with boredom: annoying my little sister, dying my hair, cranking out a blog post, or refreshing my Facebook News Feed for hours. Well today, I went one step further. I cut off all my hair.
I debated doing it before. And when everyone commented and said things like "it's just hair!" I thought I'd give it a shot. So I went out, bought scissors and thinning shears. And threw them into a drawer, where they stayed for about a month. Until today. Now I feel a little Annie Lennox- like. And that's totally fine with me.
I started with poofy, shaggy, heavy hair. YAY for helmet hair! It was killing me. Here's a tip: don't cut your hair if you're hot. You may cut off more than you originally intended to. Oh well.
And then somehow, I wound up with this. Cue the awkward, forced photo-friendly smile!
Cutting off my own hair wasn't that big of a deal, and I stressed about it for weeks. Then I finally did it, and I'm happy! It's always good to save $20 that you don't have.
Would you ever cut your own hair, or have you before?
