I last got my hair cut in January. I was really happy with it. It looked like this:
Then, after a few weeks, it started to get too long. And ugly. My hair is really bad at that in-between point and as I was looking through pictures on my computer for an example I realize I have WAY too many pictures of me with my hair at that bad length and I also realized that your computer monitor would probably crack from the ugliness if I uploaded them. So no; none of those pictures will grace this blog and you'd do well to thank me for that mercy.
After a few more weeks, it got a little longer and is now looking semi-decent again. And Bart suggested that maybe I should keep growing it out. And looking back over my pictures from the last two or three years, I realize that he's right. My hair generally looks better long.
This is one of our engagement pictures (not the one we used- and yes, the color is horrific here. This was a lousy scan I did about three years ago and the color isn't right, but my hair is the important thing here).
Here is about three weeks after our wedding:
And about four months after our wedding (yes, I had no hair cut for over a year).
So there is a tour of my hair from 2005 to last year. And it's obvious to me that long(ish/er) hair is the way to go.
In fact, after looking through hundreds of pictures, this is the only other picture of my short hair that I actually like and this was just a few days after I got it cut.
Goodbye short hair. Longer hair, here I come.
