what, you don’t like my hair???


Well, poo. Pooh on you!

Just kidding, most people like my hair, and if I really cared about the rest of the world’s opinion on the matter I’m sure I wouldn’t have shaved it! I love it. That’s all that matters. Here are my favorite not-exactly-positive reactions:

Mom: “what did you do to you hair???”
Me: “I shaved it”
Mom: “Ahh!”
Me: “It’ll be ok.”
Mom: “Yes. It’s just hair. It will grow back.”
Have a feeling she keeps repeating that last line to herself…
Best friend from Nepal: “Oh my god! Why you do these crazy things???”
Mariah’s nun teacher at pick-up: “Oh! I see mommy cut her hair.” (imagine the slightly disapproving tone of a nun…)
Attending physician facebook friend: “Um… ok.”

Well, it sure is entertaining. Most people at work didn’t even notice it because I parted it more towards the middle and the shaved part was mostly covered.

I really like the shape of my shaved head. Who knows… maybe I’ll shave the other side, too. Maybe I’ll shave it all off!

My very favorite reaction has been M’s… which is to say she had no reaction whatsoever. I tried to get her to feel the shaved part and she couldn’t have been less impressed. She was like, “Stop it mommy. Come on. Let’s play.” Guess she’s still too young yet to be embarrassed by her quirky mom!

  1. Ha! I had a feeling you were going to cut it or do something soon. There were a bunch of comments about how much you liked your short hair before. I’m one of those people that doesn’t comment on changes in appearance. I think I liked your instagram picture though, so that’s something.

  2. I actually love it! This is something I would do 🙂 I remember when I walked into work with my ‘boy cut.’ I put it that way because that is EXACTLY how people reacted to it and called it. Piss on them. I’ve been wanting to shave my sides and leave the top at about an inch to 2 inches.

    I always hate the judgement over a damn haircut. I mean seriously? My only complaint is that I identify as a female. I feel female for the most part. I was born female, I just like short hair. I have HUGE breasts at size G-H. So I always get confused when we go out to eat or somewhere and I just wear jeans and a tshirt and I get ‘what would you like sir?” Ok sorry about the mini rant here.
    To the point : I LOVE it! Are both sides shaved or just the one? I can’t tell if that pic is flipped on the first one. Looks great on you too!

  3. I love it. I wanted to do this so badly but my husband told me I was too old and that it wouldn’t look like I thought it would. lol. You may have just changed my mind.
