My hair is so thick it took 4 ponytails. All of which will be donated.
I can honestly say that the one thing about this cancer experience I have been looking forward to is chopping my hair. My hair has been in a ponytail since about 2004. I like my ponytail. It is easy, familiar, and comfortable. Cancer is not easy, familiar, or comfortable. I wanted to do something crazy. I'm not a very crazy person, so I expressed this feeling by chopping my hair.
I have been planning this haircut for quite a few weeks. In fact, I've been researching 'styles' much like I do everything else. Originally, I found a cute short cut that wasn't too short, not too daring. I was certain that was what I was going to go with. Then I found a picture of a super, duper short cut and I knew that I wanted to be brave, braver than ever, and chop it all. So we did.
Here is the progression of my hair cutting experience. My stylist was game to take photos and was very enthusiastic about chopping it all off. Shannon even joined in for some of the fun.
I think Erica left a little rat tail to be funny
Scared to look?
I am strong. I can do anything. Even rock a short cut.
I may want to replace the 80s rocker muscle Ts for something more feminine for a while!
