So here's the "hair-fro before" pics (from Bermuda last week) and the "pixie cut after" pics (from today).
I know people are thinking- why did you chop off your hair - you were SO CLOSE! But here's the thing- I HATED it.
I LOVED what it used to be, and it's not the same. My hair fell out over a year ago. I shaved my head, walked around bald, wore a wig, wore caps, the whole 9 yards. It started growing back in the very beginning of this year, and it took it's sweet time doing so. The whole time my hair was just growing in I hated it. I hated it because I had absolutely no control over it. I couldn't do anything with it besides rub in some pomade and put on a headband. As it grew long(er), it got bigger, and puffier, and curlier. I was all of a sudden faced with this mop of hair that was taking control! I absolutely had to blow dry and flat iron it every day. If I let it air dry I looked like Richard Simmons....NOT a good look!
So last week when I realized that I had a CHOICE to go back to the pixie cut, it seemed perfect. Especially since I have this rockin' wig that's just sitting on a styrofoam headform on my dresser. Kim from the Real Housewives of Atlanta wears a wig, why can't I! (I think Kim should get some of my headbands to wear with her wigs too!!!)
I thought I could get the best of both worlds- a no hassle super short 'do, and a "perfect every day" long hair wig look! So watch out now- you never know what look I'll be sporting from day to day....hey, this might actually work...no more strangers approaching me at Bed Bath and Beyond asking me if I'm The Diaper Bag Wrangler!!!!
