It'll be over 90 again today. This season has been long anticipated and Friday will be the day when I do something about it and this braid icon will be the one that'll be the outmoded one and my LOL-archivist one more definitive.
I've never been one to hold on to one style of hair for very long, and inevitably I find the care of long hair to be more trouble than its worth. At this stage it's braided and out of my way 95% of the time. On hair washing days (Lush is excellent enough this is only required every other day) it'll be decidedly still damp by the end of the day when braided. It's heavy. Etc.
I grew it out because I kept having dreams about having long hair. Well, I've successfully done that and now I get to do my butch pixie impression again. Mom (who arrives TOMORROW!!) and I will have a salon day on Friday- haircut, lunch, pedicure. I'll see about getting one last glam shot of the long hair down between now and then. There will certainly be pictures of the new-old look after the weekend.
I may have decided this anyway given the weather, but badlittlemonkey
's plunge into short is a lovely catalyst.
