I didn't Mean That Short!

I went for a haircut Monday. I asked to go a bit shorter than last time. She was cutting away, and it was looking good, like my first short haircut about 4 or 5 months ago.
Then I made a comment "this is about the shortest you could go...". I meant it like 'you wouldn't want to go any shorter than this'. I don't think she answered but soon after that, she went back and cut more off one of the side thingies by the ear. I was a little surprised but she is a good hairdresser and I trust her...
Then she just kept going. I guess she really had to by then. You cut it off one place and then it has to all has to balance up. It wasn't a mistake, she did it on purpose. She seemed very pleased by how it turned out. I was speechless.
Later, I was wondering, did she take my statement about not being able to go shorter as a kind of challenge?

My husband likes it. That helps. I don't think it looks bad, maybe I will get used to it?

i ~Love~ it! i was just thinking to myself the other day, i wonder if i could get a Twiggy wig? Your haircut reminds me of that style, it highlights your Faerie~Soul... There's no denying it now! <3

Absolutely adorable!
I am sorry that you had such a bad haircut experience, but it really did turn out beautiful...and look at the bright side, it'll be that much longer before you need to have it cut again. :o)

Thank goodness it looks good on you then! (Really, it does.) I liked my hair the best when it was very short like yours, although it didn't look so good on me. Anyhow, it shall grow quickly and soon you'll be wondering whether to cut it again. :)

I think you look beautiful and refreshing! It suits you very well! ;D

Zom said...

Thanks you guys. <3 <3 <3

IMy hair was great for my swim in the ocean today. Just rinse and go, haha.

Serena said...

It really does suit you a lot! I wish I suited short hair because it's so easy care.

I think it's quite adorable...but I LOVE short hair...and I've never been by before so don't know you...but hey, maybe an impression from a stranger is a more potent compliment...I'd have nothing to lose if I told you I hated it...YOU look lovely. REALLY!

what's that saying "the difference between a good and bad haircut is 2 weeks." who hasn't been there before? i sure have. you do look cute though. sometimes an unexpected hairstyle is forced way to challenge us or take a risk we never have tried or expected. and blah blah blah.

La Dolce Vita said...

it looks fine, but I am used to seeing you in more hair! just want to give you a real hug, not a virtual one. hair is so important, our native americans say it is memory, and when we cut it we cut our memory. but it will grow... it really will! xx's

heather noye said...

it's VERY cute! and you can totally pull it off.

i've been there though! the last time i told the stylist to cut it to shoulder-length, she went 6 inches SHORTER than shoulder-length!!! Whose shoulders was she thinking? :(

I think it looks great! Besides -no sooner will you get used to it that it will be noticeably longer! Enjoy it!

Zom, I love it! Really, especially the first photo, the short cut highlights your beautiful eyes. I've never been brave enough to go short!

Hey Zom! We have matching haircuts! My hairdresser did the same thing to me a couple weeks ago! Do we have the same hairdresser? OMG...the back of my hair wasn't this short when I was born! BUT, everyone thinks it looks cute (I'm 54, is cute the look I'm really going for?), and it will grow back...won't it?

Seriously, your hair is very cute! AND it does look nice on you!!!

Ricë said...

Dear, you are picture-perfect! Pixie girl! I used to go this short, too, and now a simple asymmetrical cut is what I do. Love that she loves a challenge! Blessings.

You have a beautiful face and this haircut flatters your features and eyes! It is only hair and will grow back very quickly! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Hey Zom! Thank you for stopping by my blog...I was horrified to discover that none of my pictures were showing up...finally found the problem...I let my old url expire, and that was the one that was used to upload my pictures, so for every picture I have to go in and change two urls...OMG...it will take forever, but I've gone back a little over a year I think...so, there are now pictures! And no, I don't have a picture of my new "do" yet...I'm waiting for it to grow out...LOL! OMG...the back could NOT be any shorter...but, I will take and post one soon!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and alerting me to the missing content!

Hugs! Oh...LOVE your new journal! VERY cool...your art is amazing! Is that done with colored pencil? VERY nice!

Yep. Know how you feel. I almost cried over mine. Come a couple of weeks, okay, 6 weeks latter and it was sweet.
Yours does look good though.
