Oh the woes of growing out my hair. I am a short-hair lover! But once your hair is really short, you have two options
Keep the same hair cut
Grow it out and try something new
(Well, I guess shaving one's head would also be an option, but not one that I am currently contemplating. )
I have really enjoyed my newest hair cut, but it isn't really my style to do the same thing over and over again. So I am in the middle of a "growing out" phase, which brings on the inevitable--the MULLET. For some reason, the back of my hair grows (or seems to grow) much faster than the front. So I end up with a mullet. And then I get frustrated and cut it all off again--making a really difficult cycle to get out of.
BUT, to get to my goal, I am doing some new things.
FIRST: Inspiration--love these hair cuts, and I think they would be a fun Fall look, which is probably how long it will take to get my hair that long -- maybe winter :)
SECOND: Change it up without cutting it up. I am trying to do new things with my current hair so that I can "feel" like I got a hair cut without actually getting it cut. Today I parted it on the other side. Simple. Made me feel so much better about my awkward stage hair.
THIRD: NO MULLET! I am fighting the mullet by trimming the back every week. It is kind of hysterical to see me cutting my own hair with a tiny mirror and somewhat dull scissors. Luckily, my hair is forgiving and I can get away with it. We will not be here again--(scroll down to mulletted photo)!!
