Hexcuse me, this is a rather narcissistic post and I hate talking about myself. But for a lack of an appropriate blog topic and the fact that nobody seems to have noticed (heheh), allow me to embark on a supercalifragilistic post on why I decided to cut my hair short one day and out of the blue.
Needless to say, this decision has liberated me. I figured that most women I know grew their hair long to please their partners or attract the opposite sex. Some friends I know would never – for the life of ’em – chop their mane without consulting The Husband or Boyfriend or Parent. Since time immemorial, long hair has stood for the difference in the sexual hierarchy; it has always been viewed as a symbol of femininity and beauty. We never see short hair waving in a shampoo commercial, do we?
The challenge is: how does a woman stay sexy even after having hair that closely approximates Sinead O’Connor or Demi Moore in G.I. Jane?
In my case, I decided to cut my hair because I was bored (uhmm, heartbroken more like it :P). I also found this nice stylist at David’s Salon who I trusted and trimmed my hair past my shoulders a month before. A month later, I go back to Elvie and ask her to cut my hair even shorter so I wouldn’t have to tie it or clip it, as required by my company for women employees with long hair.
Frankly, I don’t know when I’ll grow my hair long again. Here a few benefits of short hair I can think of:
1. Short hair is “get up and go.”
2. You spend less on shampoos, conditioners and other beauty styling products.
3. You spend less time drying and blow-drying your hair.
4. You spend less on clips, ribbons and other kikay tools.
5. Short hair makes you look younger and smarter.
6. Staying gorgeous after cutting your hair to manly length is the true barometer of beauty.
