compulsive hair disorder  

P-Con is in two days. I keep considering showing up with a shiny new v. short haircut. I have deduced that I feel my hair should either be short enough to show my ears, or long enough to pull back, because with this chin-length bob I never wear earrings, and there’s no point in having five ear holes into which I never put earrings. And in looking at pictures of me with long hair, I don’t actually *like* long hair on me very much, which suggests short is perhaps the wiser way to go.

OTOH, I should know by now that I shouldn’t get my hair cut when I’m in the middle of writing a book. OTOH, I am never not in the middle of writing a book.

I can see two advantages to cutting it short: one is it would remove most of the bleached stuff, which I use as an excuse to not swim because it would only damage that hair that much more. (I would obviously be obliged to find *another* excuse not to swim, then.) The other is that short hair recovers from hat head more readily, and with summer coming up and the anticipation of wearing a big hat a lot, that’d be nice.

…why don’t I have a CHD icon?

I found the same problem with earrings and my current bob, so that I've stopped wearing the fun danglies and just have silver hoops in all of the holes. Which is simpler, too, but I'd found some pretty nifty jewelry when my hair was still pixied, and I miss wearing it, sometimes.

I had a bad, terrible experience when I tried to take the chin-length bob to a more dramatic a-line, and now it's a gradual grade and more like mid-cheek, but I still fail to wear earrings. Though I'm wearing hats more often (today's chapeau is a brilliant blue shot through with silver, and has a nifty asymmetrical brim), which is fun.

It's not an official CHD icon, but this one is pretty perfect, anyway, and what I always use when talking about my hair. Would that I were an metamorphmagus!
