When you have shorter hair you have to sacrifice a lot of things. You trade in your scrunchies and bows for short and sassy and your curling iron for shaping paste. Short haired girls also don't look as lovely in hats...which really irritates me as I love hats...
But perhaps one of the most frustrating sacrifices we make comes in the morning. Women with long, flowing locks wake up with sexy, tousled hair. Short-haired chicks roll out of bed looking like Andy Warhol. And last time I checked my husband wasn't looking to roll around with someone who looks like him. (I jest, my husband would probably roll around with me even if I were bald...right, honey?)
Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I embrace the wacky hair. Sometimes, like the other day, I even like to capture the crazy moment on camera. Because it's one of those fun and quirky things about being me. Even though I look ridiculous I feel lovely. Because I am, no matter what I look like at 6 am!
When the idea hit me to blog about it, I thought, who else wakes up looking crazy like I do? And would they feel comfortable broadcasting that to the whole world? So the question is out...do you wake up looking like someone who never learned to brush their hair?
If the answer is yes, and you've got the guts, email me a picture of your most epic bed head and I'll put together another "Bed Heads" post were we can celebrate the women we are and the skin we're comfortable in!
Email any bed head pics you have (for hair of all types!) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
