More Hair-Raising Comments

Normally, I'm not surprised if people fail to notice when I have my hair cut. When my hair was below my shoulders, it's not so obvious if it's an inch or two shorter. But chopping off as much as I did is definitely drew some comments at work today. Most of them were complimentary, but my boss apparently is going to need some time to adjust to my new style. He keeps thinking I'm someone else. His wife, our company president, asked if I'd donated my hair. That's a noble thought, but since I hadn't planned to go so short, I didn't arrange to save my shorn locks. I'm not sure if they would have been suitable anyway--I think the hair has to be a certain length and unprocessed. I haven't had my hair highlighted since the wedding, but I'm sure there were still traces of that present.

With that, I think I'll have to find some new subject material tomorrow.

HI! Thanks for the comment on my blog!
I remember back in the early 80's, I had long hair, and one of my co-workers was going to beauty school. One evening I let her cut my hair, as I was ready for a change. I expected it to be a little shorter, with some layers put in. Instead, she cut LOTS off, and it was really short! I couldn't get used to it, and yes, my boss and co-workers kept looking at me like I was a different person! They liked it, but I never got it that short again.
Your hair looks VERY nice! I love it! Do you find it easier to take care of now?

Hi Sheila,

Yes, it is a lot easier to take care of now--showering is faster, and it only takes a few seconds to comb my hair out, smooth it with mousse, and put on a headband. But I do wish I'd insisted on keeping more length. It'll just have to grow back, I guess.
