I'm a Hair Girl. There are Shoe girls and Trendy Girls and Fitness Girls, etc. but "good hair" has always been my thing. I decided long ago that if I had to choose between good clothes and good hair, I'd go with the hair. I mean, the whole reason I ever started my art business in the first place was so I could have enough money to get my hair done without dipping into grocery money. That hasn't exactly worked out, because I still feel like I'm robbing the family piggy bank for foil highlights every now and then. This information is all backdrop to my current hair dilemma.
So I've recently become bored with the hairstyle I've had variations of for the last five years. I've been very happy with its general style, even though I've had to "fix" the back each and every time I came home from the hair salon to get it the way I've wanted it. Ya'll know I've been super busy the last couple of months, and I've missed a haircut or two. But rather than hating it longer, like I usually do, I'm now toying with growing it out.
This wouldn't have been an issue for me in earlier times. Oh, the carefree days of my pony tailed youth. But now that I'm, let's just say, "over 40," I hesitate to go for something that will look ridiculous. I truly don't desire to look like cougartown. Yuck. But this might be my last stab at long, glorious hair before I succumb to drab middle age. My heart breaks.
I need hair advice.
Here is what I want: fresh and hip
And whilst you kindly ponder my hair conundrum, let's do a "Hair Themed Small Thing."
Today's Small Thing is to tidy up the hair accessories at your house. Wrap the cords around hairdryers and curling irons and put them away. Wow! That looks great already. Clean and organize combs and brushes, put clips, hairbands and ribbons neatly into drawers or containers. Done! That was easy.
POINTS: 40 for straightening up the hair tools and accessories. Finished? Good.
Now, back to my hair. Can women in their 40's get away with longer hair, or is that only for movie stars? Be honest. My kleenex is handy.
