These shots were snapped by Chibueze Saadiq during our last little summer get-together at the old house. They also serve as the only non-self-portraits I have of my new hair! Not so new now, and pretty much grown in since my last cut, but they’ll serve to show how short I really went. And will be going again come Tuesday. Short hair like this requires cuts every three or four weeks. I really should check out one of the Polish barbers around the new ‘hood and ask them for a number 2 or 6 or whatever number my haircut represents. I’m sure there will be a sign on the window to guide me. This way I end up paying $10 instead of $60.
This cut is tied for my favorite hairstyle. I’ve been steadily going short-short-shorter from almost waist length hair for about five years now and the only one it competes with is the style I got right before our wedding.
I miss those curls every time I look at this picture. Also wondering where that brown top is. It was all stretchy and comfortable and lovely. Regarding the asymmetrical style: I don’t think I have the patience to grow it out to this length again so short-short I stay. Maybe next summer I’ll finally shave it off. I do turn 30 in 2012 and it might have to go on my imaginary 30-before-30 list, hm?
Ever wanted to do something wild with your hair? Ever gone this short? It really is wonderful– wash and go. And product lasts forever since you only need a dab. Short hair rules.
