Remember when I was neck-deep in a spiritual warfare about whether or not I should lob my hair? I just used lob as a verb.
Well if you aren’t one of the few, the proud, the Marines, AKA the people who I group text on a regular basis, or follow me on social media, allow me to enlighten you.
Here is the hairy trail of my digital footprint (#wow #thatsentence). Enjoy.
Oh, and I blogged about it here a month or so back. In case my lifetime tweet saga wasn’t enough for you.
So now, to the point of my blog, where I talk about life after lob. #LifeAfterLob #LifeWithLob #LiveLoveLob oksry. Let’s get to the point now.
Three lies to tell yourself before getting a lob
“My boyfriend loves short hair”
My boyfriend loves short hair! He’s told me time and time again that he loves my long hair but since my face is staying the exact same, assuming I don’t get really comfortable with him and gain 60 pounds, then he will also love my above-the-shoulder-hair because it’s basically the same thing, it’s all hair.
“I look great with layers”
I’m a delicate sunflower blowing in the wind. And I’m a vision in layers. I love layers and layers of me and the more layers in the hair, the more mysterious the woman, as I always say.
But rly, know whether or not u want layers going into the hair appointment ok bye.
“I like to spend time fixing my hair in the morning”
I enjoy waking up earlier than I already do so I can make sure I have time to get confused and frustrated over how to hold and use the hair wand. I’m not satisfied until I burn myself, curse, curse again because I’m not supposed to curse during lent, and run late for work, by which point I’ve given up on the wand and just pulled out the basic ass curling iron. Chic.
I do like my short hair and I’m glad I did it. But like yeah, it was an AdJuStMeNt and identity crisis for a short time period and I didn’t know who I was and I had to search my soul for my purpose in life and question everything I know but like I’m fine I love it.
My first hair tweet, ironically, says I miss my long hair. So I’ve come full circle. God works in mysterious ways. This blog post is very deep and significant to American literature. Thank you for reading. God speed.
