A few weeks ago kathyb asked how long our hair ever was on her Monday Meme.
This long. I grew it all year for my green witch get up and I couldn't wait to cut it off once it was over.
Well, it's over so after I washed all the gray hair spray out of it I took out the scissors and....
Nope, I couldn't do it. Not yet. Maybe after the MDSW. Maybe. You see, I've become attached.
Only once in my life have a had such ridiculously long hair. In 1968 I took my equally lengthy tresses to the beauty shop to get the popular shag cut right before I saw Zefferelli's Romeo and Juliet. BIG mistake. After seeing Olivia Hussey's gorgeous hair, I cried over my horrid shag for weeks months.
I was supposed to look like this.....
...but after a miscommunication with the stylist, I ended up looking like this. It looked great on Mia but on me-not so much.
So even now when I take up the scissors I'm still thinking of my teenage girl crush. Isn't she gorgeous? This is going to take a while. I may have to snip it off slowly so it's not such a shock to my system.
