chd strikes but good!  

A few weeks ago, in a fit of frustration at my hair, I trimmed my bangs a bit, and spent the last few weeks astonished at how much more pleasant it was to not have those long fringes in the way. I liked that I could see my face better.

So I went to the stylist today and had them re-do the color on my bangs first, while I considered the rest of my hair, so I sat there looking at myself for the better part of an hour (which is somewhat more vanity than I usually indulge in, just for the record). They’d pulled the rest of my hair back to get at the bangs, so I spent a while entertaining myself by pulling it loose again, and looking at it, and putting it back again.

And I decided that I was, in fact, really tired of having hair around my face. And it struck me that for the last several years, when I’ve gotten my hair cut, I’ve kept length in the front because growing out a fringe is such a freaking you-know-what in the ass. I mean, like, since I shaved my head, I’ve done that, so we’re talking about eight years, which is a long time.

So now I don’t have any hair around my face anymore:

Very cool! I've been fighting off fits of the CHD for the last several weeks, and it is nice to know that it doesn't have to end in tears. :)

That looks really cute. :) I often miss having short hair, but I'm not willing to get rid of my dreads just yet.

Yanno, my CHD just results in shaving my head... :P

Whereas mine has lately (as in the last year or so) resulted in me not getting my hair cut at all (starting from a crewcut.)

What's the back doing? Did you have something carved in the back? A shamrock maybe?

Oh damn! The shuttle's here, LOL! Sonic booms. At first I thought someone fell down the stairs and I was holding my breath waiting to hear tears.

Now THAT'S the Catie I know. You look like you did in high school now, but even better.

Oooh, I like! That fringe of red is really dramatic and you look really good with short hair.
