26 Jun My hair journey
If you see me, please don’t stare at my hair. Please don’t wonder to yourself why I have neglected my appearance. I know I look crap. Growing out a pixie cut is a biatch.
It really is. I’ve been growing my out my hair since the beginning of December and it’s almost past the awkward stage where I can actually have it cut into some sort of style.
But for most of the last seven months I’ve resembled a disheveled 12-year-old boy whose mom has forgotten to take him for a haircut or on good days, Velma from Scooby Doo. Some days it falls right, and I look cute, but mostly I just look like I’ve given up on my looks. I promise that this isn’t true. I die a little inside every time I walk into a meeting or an event, because I know this is not what I generally look like. I’ve always been known as the woman with the cool / quirky hairstyles. This is embarrassing.
At the moment my hair is almost shoulder length, some bits longer than others and a bit unruly. Sporting a pixie cut, in some form or another, for the last three years, made me accustomed to easy, no fuss hair. I forgot how much extra work long(er) hair is. I’ve added 15 minutes to my morning routine in the last month or so. My hands are re-learning the art of blow-drying and I am rediscovering my favourite hair products. It’s been exciting in a way.
Next month I go for my first proper haircut since December. I cannot wait to cut some structure into my locks and actually have a style again. I have no idea what hairstyle I will have next, but right now I just want to look like a woman who actually cares about her appearance again, to have that extra skip in my step because my hair looks amazing AF.
I’ll be taking you on my journey to a new hairstyle and introduce you to some of my favourite products to tame my tresses on the way.
I wish you all a healthy and cute hair day!
