THE AVERAGE woman will change her hairstyle 104 times in her life. Supremely confident I’m on track to exceed this figure after killing off my slowly dying perm for good (R.I.P. damaged hair) and now embracing straight and short locks. Sounds high at first BUT we’re women — we enjoy evolving, re-inventing ourselves, spicing up things… and most importantly, taking chances.

Sure, they’re temporary chances and risks because after all, hair ALWAYS grows back. That’s the great thing about hair — it’s universally and perpetually forgiving. You always have the extravagance of second, third and fourth chances to get it right.

Conclusion? So far, my hair is the most exciting relationship I’ve ever been in. [SAD FACE] And yes, even though short, it still keeps me warm at night! Ba-dum PSHH. [SAD FACE #2]

    Becs! I’m doing okay, but so busy with work! How about you? I love your hairstyle and it makes me smile to read your post because I feel the same way. I love your blouse. It has the right amount of billowyness! I’m sorry for being MIA too! But I’m glad that we can get in touch anytime :-) xoxoxoo

    “So far, my hair is the most exciting relationship I’ve ever been in.”

    That quote is priceless; sadly, I can totally relate. You look exquisite in short, straight locks, Becs – the style completely suits this boho chic look. Gorgey!

    P.S. I dance as a hobby at a studio and at home. Ballet only; but I love to do ballet moves to fast-tempo music (more so than classical music), so I’m usually doing ballet to MGMT. :P
