A few years ago I think that having my hair look so huge and flyaway like this would have mortified me; probably any woman with huge, curly hair would tell you this. I always tried my hardest to allow it to be curly, but get it as flat and manageable as possible. Definitely not an easy feat when you live somewhere that it rains nearly everyday for 9 months out of the year.
Last year I had a Felicity – Season 2 moment and cut it all off (boy-short) in order to “start new”…or something. I didn’t do it for anybody else but myself, and I don’t regret it, but it has been a long year of growing it out. Since I didn’t have it for awhile, I think I appreciate it more now. I’m just letting it be, hugeness and all, and you know what? I honestly think I look better.
