You could also say raising or rising...all apply
I had fairly long hair when I was a kid. The daily battles to plait my hair, with ribbons, before 7am, when I left for school, caused annoyance and I went ahead with a Diana cut. And varied that in between with a mushroom cut or a blunt and the stereotypical " boy cut"
The huge comfort in this cannot be denied. But it causes your face to look fuller ( so I tell myself) and that is not a good thing when one has put on weight. It also makes you look a near man from behind when you are in those androgynous pants and shirt. Long earrings do not go too well and if it is a traditional festival/ occasion a nine yards surely looks ludicrous to say the least.
So each year or once in a while I decide I will grow my hair. Till the moment this unruly hair of mine turns me into a monster- it grows out horns- literally!!
Being too lazy to try hair sprays or gels and too anti straightening for fear of going bald, i opt for the quick fix and go back to a short" boy cut"
Maybe I could try hair extensions or a wig.....hmmmmm
Anyway I lost my patience and had a hair cut today. I feel FREE!
