|our wedding day; my hair was pulled up and curled; it's usually a little longer than this|
I'm visiting my Mom and this is the only pic of my hair I could find on her computer
I keep seeing the trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby and I feel really drawn to the short bobbed hair of the 1920's flapper girls. It's so incredibly cute, but it's SO SHORT! I even love the reason so many women were chopping their locks in the 1920's--empowerment! What would I do with myself if my hair were that short??? I think I'm still on the fence about taking the plunge, but I can't get the idea out of my head. I've made a list of pro's and con's to chopping off all my hair, but who know's what decision I'll finally make.
|The Great Gatsby|
- I don't do anything with my hair now. Short hair would force me to do my hair
- It would be totally different than anything I've ever done with my hair
- I may end up ahead of the curve of a fashion/hair trend instead of a follower
- It will grow back; my hair grows very fast
- It will grow back (yes, I had to list this twice to remind myself)
- As my hair grows back I will slowly learn how to better style longer hair (I'll be "earning" my long hair, if you will)
- Dennis thinks it will be cute
- Having short hair will force me to get used to not pulling my hair back
- It will be liberating
- It may motivate me to workout to loose the double chin
- I hate change
- Even if it looks cute, I will hate not being able to pull my hair back
- Change is scary
- What if I don't even like the way it looks?
- I will miss my long hair
- I will actually have to do my hair
- I don't want people to think I cut my hair because I had a baby
- Will it accentuate my double chin?
So far it sounds like the pro's outweigh the con's. What do you think?
I deviated from today's topic, since we don't have Bank Holiday in the US, but if it means a long weekend, we should definitely hop on that train! I should note that I am in my hometown (Shreveport, LA) with Jack to visit my Mom, so I'm sorta on a long, long weekend)
