Listen… it’s happened before. At the time I was so deluded that I was quite pleased with myself, but looking back at pictures, I cringe. So I’m trying to resist.
My hair is driving my mad. It hasn’t been cut since October, which wasn’t really bothering me much because I wanted to grow it nice and long for summer. I’m pretty decently on my way. However, I neglected to think about one critical thing… POSTPARTUM HAIR LOSS!
^ which is how I feel about that.
It’s not the hair loss part, in per se. I have approximately one BEEEELLION ultra fine hairs, which always blows new hairdressers away as I take about twice as long for a haircut as they expect me to, with my sad limpy locks. So, so many hairs. So you don’t notice my hair thinning out, in per se. What you DO notice, however, is that I shed like a bleepity bleep bleep Persian Cat. You can easily pull out gobs of hair. I shouldn’t be allowed on the furniture, and if I wear my hair down my tops are just COVERED in hair like EW GROSS YUCK within an hour or two. But worst of all… oohhh, the worsty worst of all… when a hair falls down the front of your shirt and hides somewhere in your bra. SOMEWHERE. And it feels like it could be either a hair or a bug, but if you let your guard down and assume hair you just know it will definitely be a bug.
Anyways. Now that you possibly understand why I’m wearing my hair in braids and buns and trying to refrain from giving myself a buzz cut (I wonder if Britney Spears was having postpartum shedding when she did that. How old were her kids? I totally take back thinking she was crazy. Hand me an umbrella, Britney, I’m with ya.) I would like some feedbacks for what I should do. You would think a hairdresser would be like ‘fun yay’ if I came in and was like “just cut it off. I don’t care. Make me look good.” But no, not so much. They want me to know what I want. So… What do you think? (following pictures are all from here.)
a- supershort. I’m not sure I could pull this off. But I’m tickled pink at the idea of my falling out hairs being that small instead of being super long.
b- kinda funky. I don’t necessarily have time to do this every day so mine would hang a lot limper most of the time. Not sure that would be as cool.
c – I like styles like this because the illusion of longer hair is there, but it’s actually a pretty short cut. I’ve had similar to this before. I am paranoid about she-mullets though so I always like to make sure it’s a bit shorter in back than front.
d – something like this, but with the hair a little more out of the face. Like a reverse mullet… party in the front, business in the back. Because that’s how I roll.
e – Just kidding. I’m pretty sure my middle two brothers would both be full of glee but I would be a hobo because my hubby would lock me out until I removed the manliness from my hair. Actually, I don’t think he even likes this look on men. If I ever do get wild enough to do this I’d shove some pink in there, while I was being awesome/a lunatic. Would have to take out a life insurance policy on my dad first because he’d keel over.
I guess this is basically what I was talking about two above, basically an extremely angled bob. I’ve had bobs before and they’re pretty good on me.
So, what do you think? Any other suggestions?
