My hair has turned curly-ish since I’ve gotten old and yesterday after I washed it, it dried into a perfect combination of Farrah Fawcett feathering and an 80’s pouffy look I used to have to achieve with perms, hot rollers, curling irons, and lots and lots of Aqua Net. I am saying the time it took to do my hair could have been used to re-write the Encyclopedia Britannica, but still, it was the 80’s, so what else could I do? Go out with hair that wasn’t big? Ha-ha. What’s that the British say? Not bloody likely.
So yesterday I went and got all that fluffiness shorn away and the person who cut my hair took at least twenty more minutes to style it into this smooth mom bob that would never again exist. I went out into the rain and that was it. It became the same hair I’d just had, only shorter.
