16. About letting go. I am talking about haircuts.

Well, unlike a significant fraction of homo sapiens with XX chromosomes, I do not particularly enjoy my visit to beauty parlours and salons. Any place covered with mirrors and high voltage bulbs, with near-to-perfect women stuttering around with scissors and brushes in their hands, doesn’t really sound like my kind of place.

Plus they have this habit of telling me things about me I don’t want to know. Like why do I need to know my right eye brow has more hair than the left one. I don’t right?

Hair has always been a touchy topic for me. Even as a kid. You see, the genetic endowment by my dad’s super awesome curly hair was a little delayed in being bestowed upon me. I still make do with wavey, but not complaining.

Anyways, so a month to my birthday, that’s enough for retouching hair colour and 3 months to graduation. Enough for my hair to grow out. With these calculations in place, I decided. It’s time to have a haircut, which looks like a haircut. I discovered, your determination decreases exponentially as you approach “the” chair.

A few scissors snaps later, I gave in. If nothing, I get to get away with this by putting it on Instagram with the caption. A woman who cuts her hair, is about to change her life. Thank you Coco Chanel , but the only change I have thought about it in my life is using a herbal toothpaste at night.

It didn’t turn out that bad. Or maybe it’s all the blow-drying working. Good that I am writing this blog now. Two days later this blog might have been just one word. Meh.

Until next time,
Chhavi

“Oops” moment in making.

With hopes that one day the links will be sufficient to binge read on the roadway around galaxy.
