Chopped all my hair off
« on: September 19, 2010, 08:08:25 AM »
So I had a really horrible night at work last night.  In an effort to make up for it  ;)  I decided to do something for myself today.  I decided to get my hair cut.  I probably would have put lighter blonde and red highlights in as well, but money is tight.  Anywho, it went from waist length to shoulder length.  Haven't decided if I like it or not yet.  We'll see.  The big question is this:  when I go in to work tonight and everyone comments on the new haircut, because waist length to shoulder length is a difference noticable enough for even the most non-plugged in guy to notice, and they ask me why I did it do I say, "because you all f***ing drove me so nuts I contemplated shaving my head bald and settled for this as a compromise."  I really am just about ready for a job change.  Unfortunately such a thing would likely be a significant pay cut so I'm not sure I can really swing that at this point.  5 years... I can do 5 more years, right?  House will be paid off, car will be paid off, no bills.  I can fix up the house and travel more.  5 years.  I can do 5 years... I'm guessing this is not where you expected a story about a haircut to end up, eh?  Dear God, I don't want to go in to work  tonight.

How did this end up in a werewolf forum?  I thought I posted it under the general discussion part of the board.  Dear God, I hope I'm not like Samson and now I can't function properly with all my hair cut off...

Actually, this is a perfect direction for a haircut story to go.  It seems like when ever I feel crappy about anything, the first thing I think of doing is cutting my hair  :th_smilies-2:  Half the time it just makes me feel worse.  This is exactly what happened to me earlier this week.

Can you get someone to cover for you tonight?  Maybe you should lay in a bubble bath and eat chocolate and drink wine.  Watch a movie that will make you cry, but in a good way.

You don't sound like yourself Jackie.  You usually sound so intelligent and composed.   :th_yonofui:

Well, at least I usually put on a good game face, then, eh?  ;)

Wow you are brave Jackie! I've thought of cutting my hair many times but just can't get up the nerve.

And yes you can do 5 more years :-)

Meh, it's not bravery.  I do it every once in a while.  My hair grows pretty fast so it's not really even a long term situation if I just hate it.  It's just hair.  Besides, with my high risk status for breast cancer I figure I may as well accept the fact that one day I'll be bald for a bit.  ;)  Also, I'm not a terribly vain individual so unless I'm standing in front of a mirror or someone is commenting on it I tend to forget I even have hair, it's just not that important to me.  Which makes one wonder why that was what I chose to do to make up for last night, really... but it was change I needed and this was a cheap change.  :D

I do that all the time.  My hair grows fast too.  I once had it cut extremely short.  Seriously, it was less than an inch long in places.....Vince about s***.  But a few months later it was all grown out.

Right now, mine has grown to just under my shoulder blades.  Yeah, I'll prolly get it cut short again soon.........or maybe not.

I've seen how you color your hair.  I think your definition of subtle highlights and mine may not mesh.  So... thank you for the offer, but no.  ;)

 dlike dlike :crybaby: :tantie:

I wish I had hair that grows fast.
Jackie I had no idea you had your hair that long.  Sometimes we need a change, and you are right, it's just hair, but if that was me it would take FOREVER for it to grow back. 

You can do 5 more years, just don't think about it in such long stretches.  Sadly 5 years goes by way to fast. 

You will have to tell us the reaction you got though!!

I'm a hair changer. Our family album looks like one of those hair books you look through at the salons...

I think you'll enjoy the shoulder lenghth, Jackie. And unless you layered it a whole bunch it's not really that different from before. You'll wash it, blow dry it and put it in a pony tail, right?

And yeah, you can do 5 years years... a paid off house is a powerful incentive. Way to plan for the future, Jackie! Well done! :)

Actually there are layers put in.  I could probably pull it back in a pony tail but generally don't when it's this length because my hair is naturally wavy/curly depending upon the lenth and a ponytail just doesn't work well when it's this short.  I will twist it and put it up in a clip, though.  Especially at work I don't have much tolerance for my hair down around my face.  I like an unobstructed view of the casino when I'm walking the floor.  ;)

By the way, you are all a bad influence.  I don't think I have ever talked this much or this in depth about my hair before.  Look what you've done to me.  :::sigh:::

Yeah, first of all I don't own a blow dryer because that makes my hair *very* frizzy.  And I used to own a flat iron.  A rather expensive one at that because it's the only thing that would work on my hair.  Gave it away because, honestly, I'm just not willing to put that much time and effort into my hair.  Shower.  Air dry.  Go.  I'm a simple kind of a girl.  ;)
