hair, con’t

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:

It’s pretty.
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….

  1. I don’t know about you but I like my hair long rather then short. I have not cut mine at ALL in 5 plus years though mine has not passed my shoulders even now.

  2. It’s been 2+ years for me, and my hair almost comes to the middle of my back. It grows so fast! In theory I could get a short cut & be back to this before I turn 40. 🙂
