January 17th, 2012
Something befuddling happens to me every five years that I’m hard put to explain. I get a most strange tingling in my hair follicles and am compelled to cut everything off my head. In other words, I go short. And every single solitary time, I hate it, and every time I forget I hate it and do it again five years later. In 2007, it wasn’t so so bad, just kind of shaggy and lopsided. It was 2002 that I regret with all my heart. There was curliness involved, a rat tail, and too much nape exposure.
Which brings me to now, because if you’ve done the math, you’ll deduce that 2012 is the fifth year.
Somebody grab my head and keep it somewhere safe until the year passes without a shortening incident.
As for you, please describe a hair atrocity. What horrible hairstyle did you once wear? (Pictures, please!) What haircut were you compelled to try despite all conventional wisdom? Did you ever dye your hair a color not represented in nature?
Please do tell.
