Hair

I had my hair cut today, thankfully arriving home just before a massive downpour so it still looks nice. 

A little while ago I asked Dan if he thought me growing my hair a little would be a good idea. We decided it would not. A couple of weeks later someone at the shop said I'd look "really nice" if I grew my hair into a bob. Yesterday when I said I was going to the salon another volunteer at the shop exclaimed that I should by no means have my hair cut and should grow it. It has also been commented on a couple of times that I don't colour my hair - why would I, my hair is already many colours and is changing all the time! 

How exciting to know my hair is of such great interest to people. I decided a change was a good idea after all and left it maybe half a centimetre longer than usual, winter is coming and I don't want my head to get too cold.

  1. It's funny isn't. When I have changed my hair in the past it has always been of great fascination to other people. I have long hair now but I remember having some odd comments about it being too long - it didn't bother me, it was just interesting.

    1. It is funny, I never look at people and imagine how wonderful their hair could be!

  3. you have to laugh in a way that the state of your hair can cause so much interest and opinion!
    Hair and I have given it a great deal of time thinking about this - years in fact is very tribal.
    As are eyebrows.
    Several years ago I stopped having my hair dyed - for various reasons yet 2 people close to me feel the need to point out how aging my grey hair is. At every opportunity.
    Badly home dyed hair is very aging but not being grey would tick the box for them...but not me.
    In my experience husbands will say what they think you want to hear about hair...it's a miracle mine notices;-)

  5. It's important that you like your hair cut as you have to look at it every morning.
    I feel my hair is always a mess, except when I've just been to the hairdressers. My hair is fine and has a stubborn natural wave and five minutes after making it look nice it pings back to where it wants to go and then in humid weather it's like a frizzball.

    1. My hair is very fine, but also very straight, so beyond a certain length it's neither use nor ornament. I know how you feel about the lack of control over it.

  6. I've got long hair - and don't colour it either. My Mum is always going on about people she knows and her description often includes "she has lovely short hair". I know it is a dig at me but as I had to have my hair cut short when I was young and it was for convenience and "neat". I am rebelling in my elderly state. (I wear purple too) It is actually less trouble for me to have my hair long that it is when it is short as you are always having to do something to it.

    1. I agree, having short hair can be more work than having it longer. Do people really think their hints are subtle?

    2. When I was walking the Appalachian Trail it was much easier to have long hair because it could just be tied back out of the way. I've found short hair is more work from a haircut point of view but way easier day to day. Since my home haircutting accident last year I've gone even shorter. A grade 5 is my preference now. Can't see myself ever going long again!
