Recently I decided to dye my hair. A dark chocolate brown. I usually am a blonde with the works--aka highlights, lowlights and everything in between. But for some reason or another I got in the mood to become a brunette.
Who knows. I like experimenting with my hair, seeing if I've been missing out on anything fun or interesting. Or just to realize, hey, I've been doing the right thing all along.
Now that I am a brunette (and getting more used to it by the way) I am pondering if I should chop off my hair. I am feeling something short. Really short.
I haven't had this type of haircut since the first grade.
Quick story on that one. My mom took me to JC Penney's to get a haircut. She thought a pixie cut would look adorable on me. Of course being so little I had no clue of the disaster that would soon follow. (Which reminds me, remind me some time to tell you the story of when I got "The Rachel" haircut. OMG, it was TRAUMATIC!)
After they were done I was in shock....I looked like a little boy! With a short haircut! Mind you this is '84-'85 before pixies were done stylishly and cute. My mom still declares to this day that it was adorable, I looked so cute, etc. I beg to differ.
I have my first grade photo as proof.
So after that haircut gone wrong my mom asked me (we were still in the mall) if I would like to get my ears pierced.
Oh, would I! So we trot over to Claire's boutique and am so happy that I won't look like a little boy anymore. Except everyone failed miserably to tell me how BAD it hurt to get my ears pierced!
So now I was crying from pain and the boy-cut. Lovely.
Back to the point of my post--oh--and Mom, now that I am older I can appreciate a cute haircut. But when I was 6 years old and all of my friends have long, pretty hair and I show up and everyone calls me a boy, well, that just was no fun. Kids can be so cruel! Hence why I am seriously considering homeschooling Isabella--but that's a whole post in itself.
Anyway, I am now considering the pixie. I want some simple, cute and easy to style. I read somewhere that if you like how you look with a ponytail then you will probably like a shorter haircut, aka a pixie. I LOVE me some ponytails! Seriously, I almost always end up pulling up my hair. Always.
I'll let you know what I decide. I am just so torn. Any input that I get will be taken seriously into consideration. I'm off to look for some cute cuts now...
