But holy cow was I wrong. One week of humidity does not prepare you for 3 months of humidity. Until last night, I HAD been trying to grow out my hair. For about 9 months. It grows super slow so it has been a long process to get to the long-end of the short-hair-scale that it had achieved. But it was far too much hair for this weather where you feel like you're constantly dripping off layers like a candle. I've lived in very hot places before, and even ran cross country in triple digit heat but with this added moisture, it's a whole 'nother ball game. Doesn't that seem strange? If someone asked me whether it'd be hotter at 95 degrees with or without some moisture in the air, I would think moisture would = cooler.
Anyways, last night we buzzed off Boyfriend-Fellow's hair and I was so jealous. I wanted shorter hair, I wanted a change and despite Google using the voices of thousands to tell me, "Don't do it!" when I searched, "How to cut a pixie haircut at home" I went ahead with it. I was partially terrified because the last time I gave myself a haircut (over 10 years ago), it was disastrous enough to make me pay the big bucks for a haircut ever since. But I went ahead with it mostly because I recently plopped down some cash for a trim and didn't feel like there was any way to justify spending money a mere 3 weeks later on the same hair.
The day after...
Apologies for my very dirty mirror. No apologies for my adorable iPhone cover (thanks Madre!)
