Daily Prompt: Express Yourself

ˆ

ponytails trailing from behind

a bun on top

a cut and shave

topped with hats galore!

It seems I have always expressed myself through my hair….

Apparently I was bald as a baseball bat when I was born.  I had a pixie cut until the first grade when my dance teacher told my mom that a dancer must look like a girl and have hair – thus the era of ponytails, braids, buns, twists…….had begun.  It wasn’t until I was married and no longer dancing that I decided to ‘go short’.  My ex-hubs was not happy.   My response: “It is my head and I can do what I want with it”!  That did not fare too well, but as I said, it was MY head. I was the one who would have to carry it around all over the place.  So, the hair stayed short….until Jordan was born.  Being a new mom and unable to do anything but live as a dairy cow,  I grew it out and went back to ponytails. 

A few years later, Peyton was born and triathlon training.  Let’s just say that chlorine, swim caps, bike helmets and running hats do not make good bedfellows.  Also at this time, the ex-hubs was just about officially ex, so I decided to cut the hair – totally – as in shave.  I was not quite a Marine, a #3 blade to be exact.  (training convenience and an act of defiance!)  Jordan was not too happy – he locked himself up in his room for two hours.  Peyton wasn’t sure what to think and, to make a long story, this was the day that I educated my sons in what I like to call a women’s prerogative:)  (I did manage to soften the blow when I told them how cool it was to share the same hair cut as their mom!) 

Fast forward to now… I have kept it short.  I play with the lengths – a #2 or 3 or 4 blade.  There was a short while (oops, a pun) in which I grew it out ‘some’, but found it too taxing.  I had to do things with it and buy extra stuff for it – yuck.  I found longer hair to be a total waste of my time.

In summary, I love my short hair and have discovered I can wear really cool hatsyes, Sydnee Pee’s hats!.  Also, I never, ever, ever have to deal with bed head or a bad hair day.  There is no more fiddling for hours with a hair style or color, no more money spent on gooey gel stuff  and, most importantly, I still share the same hair cut as my boys.  How totally cool is that?

Autumn
