I’m not ashamed in saying that I love my hair. I love my hair and it’s probably the one thing about my appearance that I actually care about the most.
I think everyone has something about their appearance that defines them, that makes them appear as an individual and that they really love and care about. For me that just happens to be my hair 🙂
In case you didn’t know, I have short hair…I mean SHORT hair…I mean its a pixie cut, that short. Now for a girl this can be quite…lets say, interesting sometimes. I’ve gone through many different types of pixie cuts through the years and like most people, when I look at my past hair cuts I sometimes wonder what the hell I was thinking haha XD But that’s the whole point about change really isn’t it, you learn from past experiences to get a better outcome each time 🙂
So I’ve just recently had my hair cut and in my last post if you read it, I mentioned that I might dye my hair. Well for those of you who are interested, I highlighted my hair blonde, so now my hair is now blonde and brown and it looks pretty awesome, I’m super happy with it 🙂 I did try and dye my hair a lighter brown first, but you could literally see no difference, so that’s when I consulted the boyfriend and now I’ve got my highlighted blonde hair which he likes too, which is good haha 🙂
Then I obviously got my hair cut. I get it shorter than most girls would, even for girls who have short pixie hair. Basically, I don’t have long hair because I hate hair on my neck and hanging at the side of my face, so I have my side and back super short! Its actually shaved at the moment, but not so shaved that it looks like a guys it just looks like its been cut very short haha. And for the top of my hair and my fringe, I’ve learnt over time that its better to be longer. Though I like my hair short, I still like to play with my hair and style it and look after it, so having it longer allows me to do that 🙂 Also, I’ve learnt over time that it makes you look and feel more feminine which is super important when you have short hair haha :-p You know your hair is too short when you are being mistaken for a guy in your year every single day haha that happened in secondary school haha XD So I have my hair longer on the top to give my hair height and so it blends naturally with my sides and back, and then my fringe is longer to look more feminine. She actually cut my hair so where my fringe falls, she’s left that side longer to make my fringe appear longer than it is which is really cool 🙂
Now you may be wondering why the hell I decided to write about this, well I don’t know haha I feel like still although everyone who has seen my hair has liked it, and even though I like it, I still feel like its always a game of convincing people its good when I get my hair cut. Its just accepted more if girls have long hair, and they look more feminine, and when you have short hair you do get, what I call “long hair envy” at some points which can be difficult I also haven’t shown my hair to my parents or sister yet. Now they’re used to me having short hair so I’m not particularly worried about showing it to them, but I also want their approval. Which is natural right? As much as people do what they want and make themselves happy, I still think they seek the approval of the people around them, and for me that’s my boyfriend, my sister and my parents. My parents, again if you don’t already know, are quite traditionalist in my opinion and they like my sister and I to look feminine because we are young ladies. Now my parents think my short hair is quite sophisticated and grown up, so I get approval for it, but its that feminine factor that I usually fail on, and I think I’m going too this time too, but that doesn’t bother me and I’ll tell you why…
To have short hair you have to have confidence. There is no way a girl can have short hair and not be confident haha :-p If you have short hair you’re going to get people looking at you and asking lots of questions etc so you have to be prepared to pull it off. I would say that I’m not really a confident human being at all, but my hair I am so confident on! You should also have confidence in the hairdressers themselves! They are professionals, everyone always say to me “I wouldn’t trust them to cut my hair that short” and I don’t know why haha they are literally trained to make you look good and to give you what you want haha they’re going to do it haha you trust other professionals, why not a hair dresser haha? Anyways, it makes me so happy because I feel like I look good, and it makes me different and unique from everyone else. It defines “me” in my opinion which is why it means so much to me for it to look good. So although I seek the approval of the people around me, overall I love it and no one can take this aspect of me away from me, if that makes sense haha 🙂
So I hope this was entertaining for you haha and I also hope that if any of you out there were wondering what it was like to be a girl with short hair, now you know haha :-p I am happy to be back to my old self again with my short hair haha and now I’m probably gunna show my sister what my hair looks like haha I would show my parents now but knowing them they’re asleep right now haha XD Speak to you guys soon!
