Okay.. we need to vote. Darcy is sick of her hair. Quick overview.. my hair is getting pretty long. It's about 3-4 inches below my shoulders. It's very naturally curly (which mean SUPER quick mornings.. shower, pick, mousse.. yes, I use mousse, soooo 80's but it works.. scrunch w/ towel, difuse, done) but I can get it super straight when I want a straight day. My hair is dark blond with like 3 colors of high and low lights. My original goal.. grow out my hair for Locks of Love. Super cool goal, right? Give some cutie-head little cancer patient my curls! I have a SUPER big place in my heart for cancer related anything because of my mom's illness. She had some FAB wigs.. just wanna do what I can. Gotta have 10 inches to cut and my hair can't go above my chin or I'll look like a giant Q-tip. Let's look at the pros and cons of Darcy as a long hair girl or a short hair girl. You all help me decide if I should chop:
Pros long hair:
*My hair takes a super long time to grow out.. I've worked on this length for 3 years.
*Some days I like long hair.. I can do this a lot... Put my hair up in a pony, stuff bobbie pins everywhere to make the curls go crazy, and then add some hair bling. This day it was a beady hairband and glitzy flower. Seriously takes 5 minutes.
*Lot's of people have short hair. The long haired people are becoming fewer and fewer..
*I'm that "chick" with the long curly hair. I'll have to give that up!
*It would make my friend,old roomie & my hair stylist, Erin, much happier. She hates my hair long. Says it makes my face look too long.
Cons to short hair:
*I'm still young.. let's face it... most old chic's don't look so hot in long hair.
*I'd have to straighten my hair more with a shorter cut. All the hairstyles I look at are for straight-haired people. I want that cute cut to the mid-neck, no layers in front, maybe some whispy bands and long layers in the back. This cut = curly fro for us curly headed freaks. Straight hair for Darcy = more time in morning = get up earlier... YUCK!
*Most importantly, the little cutie-head cancer patient won't get my curls.. =(
So, is it selfish to cut my hair since I'm getting so close to donating it to Locks-o-love? Erin the friend-former roomie-stylist says I have until next fall to keep growing. Let me know if I should cut my hair or not and if you have a cute do, email it my way or post it to a comment on this blog!
Oh, and like my profile pic? I thought I'd use a pic with my specs because it makes me look smarter. Don't worry, they're just glasses.. I'm really not too smart!
