I'M DOING IT!

I have a confession to make.

I have short-hair envy.  Really.

Sure, my long hair is pretty.  But goddamn it's a pain in the ass.  To do my hair it requires me to clear a 3 hour window of time: one hour to wash, one hour to blow-dry, and one hour to straighten.  (And there are no shortcuts! I know you're probably thinking, so just let it air dry.  It just doesn't work.  For some reason, when I let my hair air dry, my scalp goes INSANE.  It's mostly healthy (a little dry) otherwise--but when I skip on blowdrying it's flake city.  Yuck.

Not to mention all the crap I have to put in my hair to style it.  Conditioners, BioSilk, John Frieda products, molding mud...so much for using natural, organic products!  My styling products really need a revamp.

I've had enough.  And I look at all these girls with short hair and I think...it's time.  It really is time.

I've never been able to find a hairstyle that definitively is "mine".  There are three that I liked a lot--and, well, they're all short styles.

So...I'm doing it.  I have an appointment today at 5.  I'm not sure which of the three styles I'm going for...it will be a surprise.

Here is my last long-haired photo before the haircut.  Bye-bye, hair!  I'll update you when I return.
