August Fools! I didn’t actually chop off all my air. It’s an updo.
See? Bobby pins. If I do a better job and wear a fall to hide the back, it looks like I actually have short hair.
Here is my hair a couple of days after the hair cut. It gets curly when I let it air dry. As you can see, it’s a few inches shorter. What you might not be able to see is the ends have been layered nicely so they aren’t so bulky now.
Yeah I’ve got that halfsie Japanese, Italian/British whatever the heck I am hair. It’s big, it’s thick, and I’ve let it grow really, really long. I haven’t cut it except for trimming it myself with a manicure scissor since I was 37 years old and it wasn’t short back then. I turned 42 a few days ago.
So I’m finally getting it cut. Not a whole lot, however, as you can see there is a lot of hay-like looking straw at the ends I want gone.
The time I threw it over my shoulder like a continental soldier.
The ends are very straw-like and they’ve faded a different color than the rest of my hair.
Tried to straighten it and then… humidity.
Plus I’d like some layers.
This is my hair after a few turns with a large-barreled iron — it is so giant when it is allowed to curl or wave, I feel like it looks fine in photos and too 70’s Boogie Nights bizarre for real life. Shortly after I took this photo, I straightened my hair because I just could not deal!!
Pris Hernandez, the ethereal goth singer-songwriter and fantasy artist, drew this fantastic fan art of me about 10 years ago. I still remember the joy of receiving this in the mail: she lives in Spain.Here are some recent photos where I’ve dressed up similar to the drawing. Some day I plan on re-creating the dress more exactly, but that would take some building of my sewing skills which at the moment are very weak.
Feeling like an extra on the set of Xena Warrior Princess LOL It’s extra funny/tragic that my hair is actually bigger than the drawing.
