So the hair. I was not brave enough yet to go for the Evangelista. It's been a long time since I've had actual short hair, and I needed to pick something that was an in-between that I could easily grow out should I hate it. (And when I say actual short hair, I mean short short - not just different lengths of bob, which I always do.) So what I've ended up with is....
Hmmm, how to describe? Part of the difficulty is that I can wear it in three or four different ways to make it look like three or four completely different haircuts. (I LOVE my hair person. LOVE HER.) First a basic description:
- I got bangs (like the sexy rocker kind that hit below the eyebrow). In the process of training bangs to go in the direction that they are supposed to go.
- In the back, the hair is very layered and short.
- On the sides, the hair is about chin-length and very choppy/shaggy.
If I don't do the conservative thing, but rather emphasize all of the shagginess, the haircut looks a great deal like Shane's hair on the L Word (only shorter).
If I put the sides behind the ears smoothish but wear the bangs, I look either like I've got the Demi Moore in Ghost hair or like a soccer mom (or maybe that haircut was always already a soccer mom haircut?).
If I mess the hair up, but also wear the hair behind the ears and push the bangs to the side, I've got Winona Ryder's hair from Reality Bites or Drew Barrymore's hair from when she was going out with that one guy in Hole, Eric Somethingorother.
So who the fuck knows about this hair, but I certainly have a lot of options. The question is, which of the above will be the way that I wear it most frequently? Also, how will I wear it on Saturday, when I am being taken to dinner and a play by Coffee Guy. (Maybe I should change Coffee Guy's name? I feel like I should, but I'm not sure what he should be called if not Coffee Guy. We shall see. He remains Coffee Guy until I'm more sure about what's going on with him.) Also, what should I wear on Saturday that will compliment both me and my hair? I have a lot to think about over the next few days. (And also have to think about the fact that I am giving a talk in approximately 36 hours to a community group and I've not written this talk. I am so screwed. I also don't know what I'll wear for that. Or how I'll wear my hair. Or how to get to where the talk is being held, as I may have lost the directions.)
