I'm going to get it all chopped off. 28 inches at least, probably saved for some kind of hair donation thingy. So what to do after that? A buzz cut? Curly locks/ Hair coloring and perms? Red? Yellow? Black? I've never done any hair dying and this will be a boredom coloring. I can live with my six or seven grey hairs--they've only recently shown up and are still kind of interesting--but the rest of the brown stuff is dull and boring.
Around here nearly every last West Hartford mom goes for subtle blonde highlights. Tasteful and chic. Should I give in, like Claudia has been begging me to do?** Or maybe a nice jet black with violent violet highlights is the answer. I'm tempted to make a statement but I'm not sure what hair actually says. I could get the pats logo shaved into the side of my head like the kid down the street. No doubt what he's trying to say.
The last time I got a major chop job, maybe ten years ago? I had a firm jawline. Not so much now. That's got to mean something in the styling thing, but I'll let the professional tell me what is good and right for my age.
Oh. The hairdresser person says no, not today. Okay. So much for that momentous occasion. Now I'll go make oatmeal instead.
**she says, oh, Kate, get it cut. You look like a peasant from the old country.
