Below is a photo of me
At 16 – summer before grade 11
Right before I cut it off
Growing that hair took a while
And I loved having it – mostly
Then…it felt like a burden
Cutting all that hair – It felt
Good to be freed from it
Ha! I hear you sniggering as you look at this photo. I’ll have you know it was 1990 and well, that’s what I looked like back then.
At least until I cut all my hair off.
For about a week after my snippety-snip salon visit, I’d turn my head and almost give myself whiplash because it was so much easier to move without the weight of all that hair.
Took a while to not feel a) naked and b) like I was going to spin like a torpedo every time I moved my head.
