She cut it
Her best friends have short hair and one just got it cut so MB wanted to join the crowd. I was happy to oblige. Her hair is thin and while I love doing braids and pony tails it starts to look pretty shaggy at the ends. So we went to Sweet and Sassy and she took 4 inches off. The original plan was 2.5 inches.
It looks great. She loves it and TB and I love it. Win. Win.
As we drove home from getting it cut I looked back in the mirror and she had a sad face. I asked her what was wrong.
She looks at me very serious and says. I love my short hair, but I miss my hair- it is all gone.
I asked if she was sad she cut it. She said no.
“I love my new hair, it is just all gone”
I smiled and told her that I loved it too and that was the great thing about hair. It grows back. So you can cut it short then let it grow long again till you want to cut it.
She smiled and the subject changed.
In the back of my mind I thought what a grown up moment. How many times had I cut my hair and then while I loved the new look missed the hair that had just been left on the salon floor.
2 days later the thought of that long hair is long gone..she is working the new do!
