I like those haircuts for men and women or pretty much anybody who doesn’t like all that hair on their head.
Yet, I can admire a head full of long flowing hair that is full of volume and bounce. Not going to lie.
I need to get that type of haircut because my hair is growing a bit. I just want to chop it off.
Now that it’s short, all I remember about having long hair are the bad things. For instance, there was this guy who always sat behind me on the bus no matter where I sat, and he’d always complain that my hair was blowing in his face. So I’d have to either close the window and get roasting hot, or else remember to bring a scrunchy for my hair and of course I had a terrible memory and never remembered to bring one. Why didn’t he just sit somewhere else?! Argh. (-᷅_-᷄๑)
I’ll come back later with actual pictures of me to give you how horrific my hair has been through the years, but in short:
As a kid, I used to have short, wavy hair. In some pictures, it was mostly to my shoulder. As I grew older, I grew it out and it became thicker and curlier. Through adolescence, it mostly stayed around shoulder and arm-pit length, even when straightened. I don’t think I ever grew it out passed the arm-pit because, unfortunately, I couldn’t figure out how to manage it. I’m the only one in the entire family to have thick, curly and frizzy hair. So my parents couldn’t figure out what to do with it and no one at salons knew what to do with it (because they only ever worked on straight hair).
The shortest I’ve ever had was probably between age 11-12 when it was cut in a mullet-like way (thanks mom) and age 15-16 when I got a pixie cut (basically neck length). I had a few haircuts in my earlier adult years when it was between neck and shoulder length. The last time it was short, though, was way back in 2017 when it was about shoulder length. Last hair cut I had. When straightened, my hair is now at (or around) hip and tailbone length. When I sit, it goes passed by knees. xD
Again, I’ll come back later to show pictures but that’s the best description I can give lol.
I’m not sure, honestly. As much as I hate my hair, I’ve started to like its length (I’m trying to grow it out passed my butt lol) and been getting into understanding on how to take care of it and make it more manageable. I do miss it short, and I have been wondering on cutting it to shoulder length so I can start figuring out how to create an afro-type look because it looks so pretty on so many women that it might look good on me. I don’t know lol.
