For about the last ten years or so I have had my hair cut short in a crop style. When I was younger I had long hair, then a shoulder length bob, then a short bob – you can see where this is going !! I have always liked my short hair. I think there is a certain point at which most women should probably do away with cascading locks and go for something shorter – think funky and chic. That’s the look I have been going for and I don’t think I’ve done a bad job. I colour my hair various shades of red and because it is poker straight and quite thick, it always looks quite healthy and shiny.
But now I’ve decided it’s time for a change. The new sober me wants a different look. I’m never going to have LONG hair but something skimming my shoulders with scope to wear it in different ways would be nice.
So last night I read blogs about how to grow out your pixie cut, painless ways to get through that in between stage and transitioning smoothly from crop to bob. It reminded me of the blog surfing I did when I was trying to prove to myself that I didn’t have a drinking problem, later when I was trying to moderate and further on when I stopped drinking and stayed stopped – 8 months tomorrow.
I must admit I am quite worried about the months ahead but I am hoping that in 8 months time the worst will be over and I will have a new look. After all, compared to getting sober, growing out a crop should be a walk in the park. It might even be fun.
