I haven’t really done much by way of crafting this week, I simply haven’t had the energy for it. Fickle weather’ll do that, along with headaches, etc. What I did manage to do is get my hair done. I normally let it grow as long as I can stand it before getting it cut and then donate it to Locks of Love or the like.
That said, I haven’t cut my hair really short in a very long time. It’s been close to 20 years since I’ve had a pixie cut. So why did I opt for that this time? Because I will be getting daith piercings next week (hopefully) and I didn’t want to have to worry about my hair getting caught or irritating the area while the piercings healed.
Oh, did I forget to mention I also had my hair dyed for the first time in a very, very long time? Mind you, the most I’ve ever done in the past is either blond highlights, or become a redhead. I’ve never, ever done anything crazy fun like this and I have to say: I LOVE IT!
No, seriously, I love it. For some reason, my natural hair color looks nearly black without any help, simply because of the blue. And my gray hairs? They just add to the fun. I will admit, I’m still getting used to having such short hair again, and it feels like I’m wearing a hat that I keep trying to pull off my forehead (what can I say, I’m not used to bangs lol) only to find that I can’t, of course. It’s also gotten a lot chillier ;-).
I figure, I’m 41 years old (almost 42). I’ve never done anything like this in my life, and I deserve to do something crazy and fun. I’ve always sort of envied people for doing something as bold as that and I never dared. Well, I dared this time and I am proud of myself for it.
