want to touch the hiney



Uuumm, so yesterday I totally hacked into my hair.  I was just sitting downstairs drinking my tea and chatting with my husband and the thought came into my head "you should cut your hair today." Right as the thought came to me I said aloud, in a very assertive but nonchalant way, almost as if I had decided I will drink green tea today instead of earl gray, "I think I am going to go up and cut my hair right now."  My husband, accustomed to this type of calm impulsiveness ("I am going to dye my hair blonde." "Oh ya, I cut my bangs last night at midnight." "I think I need to have a bob."), just shrugged his shoulders, "Okay." There is nothing he could say to stop me anyway.  I walked straight up to the bathroom, grabbed my scissors and the back of my hair and just cut.  All off. Well, not ALL off.  I still have what most would consider "Longish" hair. Its medium length, like a length you try to wait through while you are growing your hair out.  But seriously, my hair was feeling gross.  It was all stringy and dry for like the entire bottom half, and it just had to go.  Have no problem letting go of unhealthy baggage.  Goodbye. Then I kept cutting.  And cutting. and hacking. Hence, a hat.  Its not THAT bad, in fact once my heart becomes accustomed to it I am sure it will be totally fine.

This whole experience has taught me that my brain sometimes knows what is best for me and has to just take over my body, muffle my heart momentarily (I had been wanting long hair for SO long) and just get shit done.  Let the heart deal with the aftermath "I mean seriously heart, you know it needed to be done. You had been ignoring the signs for weeks. It was no good for you, a burden, a menace, a rats nest every morning. You are healthier than that." "Ya, I know brain.  I just wish you would have consulted me. You know how much I loved the way I could almost bend backward and touch the hiney with it." "Um, ya great novelty circus act heart, not the best reason for keeping long hair though." "ya, I guess you're right. whateves, hair grows."

Hat (perhaps a semi permanent fixture): husbands from Banana Republic
Tank:  AA
Jeans: Express I think, or limited, thrifted
Shoes: thrifted
shawl: UO

p.s.  Yes, I had a cardboard cut out of Adam Sandler when I was a teenager that I may or may not have made out with.  He was my fantasy lover.  Now you know. and knowing is half the battle.

I'm sure it's great, you just need to wait a little till you two get along each other... You know it, it knows you and it's gonna be all perfect :) And oh wow, I totally know those moments: "I think I am going to go up and cut my hair right now." and noone has a good reason to stop me... Many people knows that :) But I kinda like it, and I barely regret because it's a need, and the feeling makes you do that. Which is good I think... I love your husband's hat! I'll buy one like it, and you look gorgeous as usual :) Love you!

LOL I am the same way with hair, although I usually go and get it cut instead of trying to barber it myself. Can't wait to see what it looks like without the hat. - Katy

well even though i can only see a little bit of it, i love the hair. i've done that before. took great pains to grow out my hair and then impulsively got it chopped. after a brief mourning period, i get over it and then work to make it better. you're a champ. you can do it.

Sidewalk Chalk said...

I had to do the same thing with my hair -- it got so stringy that I could not stand it. Props to you for doing something right away, and I can't wait to see you style it.

Melissa said...

I tend to hack mine off every now and then too. Well...not quite like that, I don't trust myself to cut it personally.

I can't wait to see yours without the hat. You are gorgeous no matter what your hair looks like!

That's amazing to be so take charge with how you're feeling and what you want. I'm sure your hairs look fab since you're so fab to start with.

Oh my gosh, you have to show us! I don't think I could do it. I know it's just hair, but some people have better hair then others. You have good hair, plus the balls to cut it off, I admire that in you.

Kendra said...

I LOL'd when I saw the blog post title come up in my reader. I love Adama Sandler too!! I have actually met him and he is just as hilarious in person! We grow up in Manchester, NH, just a few miles from where I grew up, and his parents still live there, in the same neighborhood that I went to private school. We saw him going through the Dunkin' Donuts drive through... I swear it!

considering that you did it yourself, and on a whim, i think it looks pretty damn cute. the pageboy cap is pretty adorable too. i like that you have kind of have a little bit of androgyny going on with your outfit to match your new short hair. the shawl adds just the right amount of femme to it though.

Hi Christina,

well what a change!:) Gorgeous as always. Your impulsive action reminds me little bit of mine story: Several months ago I died my hair brown (like really dark brown... and I was blondee before.. so yeah, quite know, how are you feeling:))) First I was like: Oooohhh sh**t:D

But really, you have a beautiful face, you can have anything on your head.;)

I did the same thing in the spring. I think my long hair just never lived up to the fantasy and I totally get the back bend thing. I think I was enchanted by Anna Wintour and decided I must have a bob. Now it's morphed into a more natural look for me. Love the shawl and love your writing. You are a bright spot in my day!

socogrl said...

lol. i do that too. i predict you'll hack it a bit more soon! can't wait for the reveal. :)

Brittany said...

Alright, I am at awe here. HOW DO YOU DO THAT!? You can seriously pull off any hairstyle, I swear!

We should trust our instincts more. The new hair-length suits you.

Penny Dreadful said...

Crikey, that is courageous! Luckily, the little bit that I can see looks great. I hacked my very long hair off into a pixie crop earlier in the year, but I would never have been brave enough to do it myself!

I LOVE these glasses!

ooh i can't wait to see proper pictures :D

Trishna said...

I love your hair though, it plays into the mod factor very well. Did I tell you, you are officially my mod and western idol??

LOL

You're blog always makes me laugh! I look forward to seeing this new "do" and I love that hat! How do all these hats always look so fabulous on you????

Stephanie said...

You look uber-hot. Love the bob. Even with the hat.

Terri said...

Oh, I have done this very thing myself--several times. In fact, once I buzzed it all!
