Why I want to cut my hair short:
It’s always tangled.
It takes forever to wash.
It’s in my way for biking, swimming & other physical activity.
It’s just in my damn way all the time.
It’s hot in the summer & staticky in the winter.
It sheds & makes my house messier.
Scarves get tangled up in it.
My neck breaks out.
It feels like time for a change.
Why I want to keep my hair long:
I like trying out different braids, etc.
I’m afraid I’ll miss it after I cut it off.
I get compliments about it (esp from C & S).
I hate trying to figure out what haircut to get.
It feels like a change in identity, and I’m not sure I want to do that.
So long is half about pleasure, half about sunk costs. Short is about frustrations and lifestyle.
In any case, I’m going to finally call & make an appointment, since even if I were to keep it long, it badly needs trimming.
There’s a decent chance I won’t make up my mind until I sit down in the chair….
