I decided to let my hair grow long again. I've had it short for a year now and I miss that nice hair at the back of my neck. Also, last spring, I couldn't wear my Tigers' baseball cap because it looked silly with my hair do. Next spring, I hope to have it long enough so I can do a ponytail and put it through the hole in the back of the cap. Love it.
I truly appreciate all of the kind comments about my short hair. I agree that it looked neat and cute most of the time. It was very easy. But I can never have short hair for very long. I'm sort of a Rapunzel kind of girl. I always wanted long hair when I was younger and my mom liked it in a shorter style, (except for my 4th grade ponytail year, one of the best years of my like but that's a different story.)
I'm thinking I may have a bit of a Samson complex, too. For some reason, I feel better, more myself with a little longer hair. Not stronger, just better. I realize that even though I can make the do nice on Sundays and special occasions with the curling iron, straightener, or both, most days, it won't look as good as it did a few months ago, before this growing out mess I have right now. I can live with that. When it is a bit longer, say just at shoulder length, and it looks nice, I feel great. I feel like I can lick the world. Silly, it's just hair. And one thing is certain, if, after I grow it out and I hate it, or it drags me down, I can always cut it the way it was this year and hope it looks cute again. It looks like a win-win situation.
I'm wondering, do you go around and around with the short hair, long hair thing? Or do you stick with one signature style?
