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 email@example.com.
Be sure to include your name and a link to your blog for posting purposes.
I have bangs so my bed head is EPIC! I look like a crazy person until I get to my blowdryer!ReplyDelete
What a great idea!!! I'll try to remember to email you a picture when i get home :o)ReplyDelete
Oh you're fun! So I would pass for my long sexy tousled hair right? And you're right about you are who you are even at 6am!ReplyDelete
Hehe, I love this :) There is a very good reason why I never go to bed with wet hair. ... Short hair + curly hair + sleeping with a wet head = disaster!ReplyDelete
This made me laugh, especially the "right, honey?" part :) And unfortunately since I wear the scarf, I can't send you a picture...but it's a fun idea :)ReplyDelete
oh baby i'm excited to do this. now i just got to wait for a day with really terrible (or aaaaawesome) bedhead!ReplyDelete
Haha, I have hair that is a bit past my shoulders, and I sooooo do not look sexy and tousled when I wake up! I put my hair up, on top of my head, before bed, so its usually a mess of half up, half down. I'll see if I can capture a picture!ReplyDelete
That is one thing I don't miss about having short hair. I could never just get up and go anywhere. I had to get ready to go to the gym or run to the corner store. I do love being able to just throw my hair into a ponytail and go now...but I still think about chopping my mane short sometimes! ☺ReplyDelete
my hair is always super fluffy in the morning! I have never taken a photo of it though, perhaps I'll remember and join in :)ReplyDelete
Haha, on no. I could totally mail you one right now. My hair is KICKING every morning. This is too funny :)ReplyDelete
You are too funny! One benefit of having stick straight Asian hair is that I can roll out of bed without brushing my hair most days. I've only had short hair once in my lifetime...let's just say it didn't work out so hot for meReplyDelete
I have long hair but I wake up with messy hair all the time. It doesn't look sexy.ReplyDelete
hahaha this is so funny! I have long hair and I do not wake up with it looking sexy, trust me!ReplyDelete
i just found your blog and i must say, what a lovely introduction! not quite ready to share a morning photo of myself though. :o)ReplyDelete
I have short, thin, curly hair... so bed hair = so not flattering!ReplyDelete
And thanks for stopping by mizdragonfly.blogspot.com - now following you, hope you'll follow me back :)
oh man, i have the worst bed head. it's bad if it's slightly wet, just washed and slept on our not washed in days (i mean...earlier that day) and slept. the worst is probably the days when it's been wet and in a messy bun all day, then slept on. i might have a good one tomorrow am. we'll see. oh we'll see.ReplyDelete
LOL! Love this post! I have long hair and I definitely DO NOT wake up with sexy, tousled hair. Though I sleep with it tied back so maybe that does it? Some days my hair is fine, others it's total bed head - if I have one of those days soon, you'll definitely get an e-mail from me! I'm totally in! How fun! :)ReplyDelete
i look horrible with short hair and have always wanted it. i always assume it's so much easier than long hair.ReplyDelete
Your bed head is epic :D I have long hair and have never woken up with it sexy and tousled! I think those people are from myths...ReplyDelete
oh man, funny thing is your hair looks super cute and not bed head like at all!!ReplyDelete
