I got a haircut today.
And it didn’t go as planned.
I wanted it shortened and with long bangs so that there is a little movement and volume. Instead the hairdresser cut them too short and now it looks like I had a fringe and I’m trying to grow them out.
It’s not terrible… I kind of like it. It’s the way she curled it that I don’t really like.
Anyway, you can all imagine what my family had to say about it.
My mom came in saying: “Oh my God what is that? What did you do with your hair?”
My sister said nothing.
My aunt gave a consiscending smile and said: “Wow, the hairdresser is so hip and modern and she gives you an horr… well, a haircut like that.”
Then they piled on:
– “It looks like you’re from the 80s.”
– “You look ancient”
– “You just need to grow your bangs.”
Then they added that “compliment” because maybe they realised what they said was mostly negative and said: “But you still look pretty.”
So yeah…I was trying so hard not to cry. I am so deeply insecure about me appearance that it kills me every time.
I promised myself I wouldn’t have listened but after the forth comment, I couldn’t help it.
So guess what? Tomorrow I’ll wash my hair and try to style it as I like it.
Wish me luck.
