30-day writing challenge ~ Day 14 (Short Hair)


Short hair.  Day 14's topic of the WWFC writing challenge.

Ok, so I modified the theme from "the short hairs" to "short hair."  The original theme meant going down a road I really didn't want to travel, and since this is a no-rules competition, I've changed it to suit my purposes.

Short hair is easy, breezy, must be styled every day and requires frequent trips to the stylist to maintain.  Long hair is more versatile, it can be worn up or down, in a bun or braid, bouffant or BIG hair.


I had a hair disaster for a few months, it was cut way too short, bits and pieces stuck out in a cacaphony of hair jumble.  It was tamed by clips, scrunchies, hats, kerchiefs and smoothers.  My hair was schlumpy, so I felt schlumpy.  I got my hair "did" so I'm back (see recent photo posted on my blog).  Yeah, wishing I did look like the Henry Clive seashore beauty ....

I hate it when a hairdresser messes up your hair. I stopped using them many years ago, because of theis.

I've heard arguments pro-long, pro-short for ages. I do think that long hair can be twisted into a bun, a braid, a pony tail if you have the right kind of hair. My very short hair works well for me because my hair grows funny and full of cowlicks. My hair tends to grow straight up on top of my head, and straight out on the sides. There is no curl, no wave, just picture one of those troll dolls with the long hair straight up on their heads. I'm glad we both look like that Henry Clive chick though. I like that about us.

You know guys don't have it easy either. I'm always waking up in the morning with my hair pointing here, there and everywhere. I think I ned a hair bonnet or something. Wonder if my wife would go for that?

I hate getting my hair cut, but I like it short because it's low maintenance!

I guess my hair could be classified as medium length, just past my shoulders. I look like a 12 year old when I get it cut short and I get headaches if I try to put it up when it's long. So I'm stuck with something in between. I'm actually tempted at times to just shave it all off and be done with it!
