Dear readers, I feel I must inform you of something that has caused me great distress. Indeed, I have agonized over exactly how to tell you.
Yesterday, I was grieved to part with four friends. They’ve been with me for many years, and I was sad to see them go. The severance of our acquaintance will be permanent, but it was time to release them. Truly torn, I struggled to find if there might be any possibility of saving even one, but alas, it could not be done. I will not say they have gone to a better place, for there is no return from whence they have gone, and yet I know that those that remain will be better for it.
*sigh, wipes tear*
In other words, I cut my hair. (Well, more precisely, my mom cut it for me.)
*dodges rotten produce being flung from the far reaches of cyberspace.*
In my defense, my hair really needed it, and it was only four inches. Before, it was “classic” length; now it’s what is inelegantly referred to as “tailbone” length. While the loss of four inches would be drastically obvious on most other girls, not one person I know in real life has noticed!! 😥 I knew that would happen, but it’s still disheartening. The rest of my hair is much “happier,” though, and has more curl, so I’m happy.
Now that I’ve confessed, I would like to hear from you readers, even the shy lurkers!
How long is you hair? And when was the last time you cut it?
The standard way to measure is to hold a tape measure or string with zero at your front hairline. With the tape going up and over the crown, find the length of the longest hairs. You could also give a relative length. Usually, those are shoulder> below shoulder> mid-back> waist> hip> tailbone> classic (top of thigh)> mid-thigh> knee> below knee> ankle> floor and beyond.
I’ll go first.
Hi, my name is Elizabeth. My hair is thirty-nine inches long, and I last cut it on February 1, 2010.
