have you found your style?
Monday, October 10, 2011
i get a lot of questions as to why i grew out my pixie. people loved it, i loved it, and i'm sad to see it go. the pixie was bad ass. i woke up every morning and didn't have to fix my hair. does it get better than that?
i dress pretty boyish and it's a force i can't reckon with. i've stopped trying to change the fact.
the pixie was bigger than itself. it was the ultimate boyish move by chopping off my girlish locks. i was in heaven.
what i didn't think about was how it would effect the way i got dressed in the morning. my boyish clothes and boyish haircut didn't add up. because of the pixie, i was forced to dress more girly. i didn't mind at first, but it started to wear on me. i found myself putting on clothes that were "pixie appropriate."
lesson learned? you can't change your style, but you CAN take it too far. my hair is growing and growing and i'm envisioning ponytails and braids. though i may stick with the bob. either way, i'm back to the boyish clothes and couldn't be happier. nothing looks better with converse and flannel than a little hair on your head (for me, at least).
