I can live without a lot of things. And, for the past year and half, I have done as much. But one thing that I have made a priority is getting regular hair cuts since I’ve been thirteen. Every three months I’ve saved up the thirty dollars necessary to get someone to trim/cut my hair for me.
I have prioritized getting a haircut every three months because it’s absolutely true what ‘they say’, frequent trims will lead to longer, healthier hair. Three months would have been the beginning of March. I actually had an appointment for March 10th but when everything went down with my uncle’s passing, I postponed getting my hair cut. And… well here we are. Quarantine has been ongoing since mid-March and will last at least until June at this point. My hair is long. Too long.
There are lots of reasons why I should not cut my hair. I have a lot of layers… cutting a straight edge across the bottom would make the layers look crappy. And, since I can’t see the back of my own head, cutting a straight edge seems next to impossible. But hey… my hair is long. TOO LONG. It’s tangled. It doesn’t wrap nicely in a bun anymore. The ends are splitting. The stress has had serious affect on my hair. So, at any given moment the should I/shouldn’t I argument is leaning towards ‘DO IT, YOU IDIOT’.
Yeah, my inner monologue refers to myself as an idiot.
If anyone is reading this, have you reached a point in quarantine where you’ve cut your own hair? Did it go okay? Did it go badly? My biggest fear is that it’s going to go very, very badly. I need to know if someone has had success with it.
Maybe I should get bangs…
