A lot’s happened over the last year, so I’ll keep it short and sweet: it was time for a new ‘do, so hacked off my long locks I did. And I don’t regret it, not even when I wake up and my hair legitimately looks like something from Medusa’s head. Lesson learned: strands this short require even more maintenance than long hair. Time to grow it all back, though I have worn my hair in a chin-length bob in the past and loved it. However, my 20s are more than halfway over, and I want to enjoy a long, luscious mane before my hair starts changing color. Only a handful of graying women can pull off the long hair look without it looking witchy, and truth be told, I don’t think I will be the exception.
