(A Shorter) Bob's Your Uncle

My friend L came over today and cut my hair. I had a bob already, but I wanted her to trim it up a bit and get it ready for my next hair plan. This is not the most glamorous photo I could've shared of my new cut, admittedly, but frankly I didn't have much else to write about today, and I felt like it would be weird to talk about my new haircut without a photo of it. So here you are presented with the bathroom selfie. But it gives you the general idea, yes? I went a bit shorter than the bob I had before, with a few little layers, and I like it. I like it a lot. But it won't stay like this for long. After this, I'll grow it out. Thus the layers - they'll grow out more nicely than a more blunt cut.

I figured out sometime within the past two years that it is easier for me to have short hair in the winter. The reason for this is: winter hats. They fit over my short hair better, and they don't press my hair into my neck, which I find to be supremely uncomfortable. Try as I might, I never figured out a way to get a ponytail under a winter hat (and also arranged to accommodate my winter scarf) in a way that didn't look weird, and leaving longer hair loose never worked out either. Conversely, I find that longer hair works better in the summer, when I want it out of my way and have no need of a hat. In the summer, the breeze would blow bobbed hair right into my sweaty face, and I couldn't pull it back. So for summer, a ponytail is my jam.

And so, here I am, with less hair in the winter, planning to have far more by summer. It does seem counterintuitive, doesn't it? But it works! So I'm doing it! Yay!
