my messy hair has fears too
i have messy hair. in my last blog, some smart reader suggested that i get my messy hair cut. it might actually be a good idea, since as an adult, i have never had anyone cut my hair. i did think about it in depth, but that being said….it’s not as easy as it sounds…
this is what my hair looks like in the morning
this is what my hair looks like in the afternoon
this is what my hair looks like at night after a rough day at work
this is what my hair looks like in the wind
this is what my hair looks like when i get electracuted
this is what my hair would look like green……
ah shit, this is what my hair looks like all the time…
my hair is messy, dirty blond but lighter in the summer when i am outside more. it NEVER grows any further than my shoulders, which i dont understand. since i dont have it cut shorter, i would expect it to be down to my feet. hmmm. anyway, when it gets really bad, i grab a pair of scissors and cut it myself, never taking off too much (although one time i chopped my bangs off and was the laughing stock at work).
isn’t it interesting that i have never as an adult had my hair cut by a hair professional?
i think it comes back to the issues of not wanting people touching me and not being in control. as i understand it, first the hair professional washes your hair and then they cut it, put stuff in it, and dry it… oh and they put some gown around your body -OMG, confined! …. the whole process feels like a loss of control to me and i hate thinking about people touching my head while i am confined. i think i would hate it…..but i don’t know, since i havent had it done. i don’t remember getting that many haircuts growing up either, so basically i have had messy hair since day 1.
some people my age wear their hair messy because they are artistic, but that is not really an excuse i could use because my messy hair is just messy. i can imagine that a hair professional could help my messy hair by cutting it, shapeing it, and giving me something to put in it. i can imagine it might work… but i can’t imagine me going. i know some people love getting their hair cut, but to me i get anxiety just thinking about it. .
what do you like about getting your hair cut?
how frequently do you get your hair cut?
does anyone feel like me and fear the hair professional?
