Nancy studied my face for 2 minutes holding her hands over my cheekbones, sizing up my facial structure in her mind. "well, you're kind of square through here, but, oh! you have a really nice jawline." we poured over collections of pixie cuts from mia farrow to mia wasikowska. we got a second opinion from vincint the stylist next to us. Finally at 3:30 (my appt. was at 3), i texted steve and said "I'm doing it!" It was so freeing to watch the locks fall to the floor and see these short wisps coming into form. And it was fun to see Nancy having so much fun. she has cut my hair for 3 years and known that i wanted to do this for awhile. she said, "I'm so excited i get to do this cut! no one in Kansas City ever wants it!"
I'm so glad that i did it. I like it and i don't feel like a boy like i'd feared, i actually feel more feminine somehow. I was such a nerd last nite. I tried on all my clothes and kept showing steve, "this is what it looks like with a sailor dress," "this is what it looks like with boots." etc. He was making fun of me by the end, screwing up his mouth to one side and saying, "oooh, it doesn't looks so good with a sweater dress, too bad those are your favorite" and then laughing. Well i could go on but i know this is not important in the grand scheme of things that actually matter. I just wanted to share :) oh, the final color will be blonder, but we didn't have time to do that yesterday.
