That being said, I have always admired spontaneous people. I often times try and pretend I am spontaneous only to fail miserably and fall right back into my normal habits. I think girls that change clothing styles once a month seem like they are having so much fun. I admire those who have 3 or 4 different majors during college, because they get to try so many different things and learn so much. And I imagine what it would feel like to be one of those girls that wake up one morning and decide its time for a change and before you know it they have cut off half of their hair and dye it blue. What would it be like...?
Well, today I became that girl...
I woke up this morning and I decided it was time for a change. I have had long hair my entire life and have never been bold enough to do anything about it. There have been many times I have gone to a salon with the intentions of walking out with short hair, but I always seem to chicken out at the last minute and just get it trimmed. But not this time. This time I was going to print off a picture of a girl with SHORT hair, take it into the salon, and close my eyes until it was over and done with. And that is exactly what I did. (See picture below):
That is what I wanted my hair to look like, but that is not what it looks like. It's definitely shorter, however, the guy cutting my hair (Vince was his name) told me he would not cut it as short as I wanted because since I was making such a drastic change I should test the waters first. He said once he cuts my hair, if I want it shorter, then I can come back next week and get it shorter, but for now he would not cut it as short as I wanted. Ok, I understand where he is coming from...but I want to be spontaneous! Though he had good intentions he completely stomped out all of my spontaneous fire. Sigh. It's not like I hate my hair or anything...it is alright...but its not what I wanted. I wanted more spunky, more short layers, more flippy (this is a terrible description) and what I got was just...shorter and kind of boring. I'm debating whether or not to go back and get it cut exactly the way I want or if spontaneity is just not ever going to be for me.
What do you think I should do?
