Shorter Hair Than I've Had in 18 Years

Our hairstylist moved out of town, and SwingDaddy and I have been growing shaggier ever since. Fortunately, YF (who always has cool hair) recommended her stylist, and we went for cuts.

For the last decade and a half, it's been important to keep my hair long enough for braids, buns, and other vintage costuming requirements, but I'm not going to being dancing any Victorian gigs until Swimmy and I are no longer one. So, when Hip Stylist Guy told me that I'd look like a "new girl" and he was going to go shorter, I figured, why not?

It doesn't look like much in the photo, but SwingDaddy says he thinks it's cute, and I'm getting used to it. It's the first real change to my hair since I stopped perming it in the 90's. About time!

In other news, Q has started wrapping a blue teddy bear in his blankie and calling it "baby," complete with rocking motions. He gently put Baby on the changing table and asked me to help change its diaper. After rocking Baby some more, he decided he wanted to snuggle blankie instead and tossed the bear on the floor. Small steps.

Love the hair!

I used to diaper Ramekin's mickey mouse in a baby diaper for him when the new baby came. He thought that was highly amusing.

Ohhh, I like it a lot! You look very hip!

My daughter spent a lot of time "nursing" her dolls when her brother was a baby. He was born in the winter in New England, so she was wearing zippered sleepers, of course, and would unzip, jam a baby in there, and zip it back up. Ah, memories. ;)

I like it too! Fun change.

It looks different - I like how layers actually show up in your hair - very cool. (you know, unlike my frizzy mop, where layers go to die.)

I love the do Lady M! Very stylish! I'm waiting to get my hair done once it's long enough to donate to "Locks of Love". That's too cute about Q! I think he'll be such a caring brother!
