I had neither the patience nor equipment to pull this one off, which provides a nice segue to what I want to say about my relationship with hair. Several of you have made a great point: showcasing all these styles is going to make me want to keep my long hair! Well, I already cut it, and I have no regrets! You see, I'm not a "hair person" at all. I feel like I don't have the skills or desire to do a lot with my hair in terms of styling, so a low-maintenance, no-fuss haircut is perfect for me! Though long hair provides endless possibilities, I very rarely took advantage of them. As my stylist was cutting my hair, I felt no sense of panic or attachment whatsoever. This little countdown was just a last hurrah with the long hair. Stay tuned, the new cut will makes its debut this afternoon.
