Random advice from my sister

June 2, 2009   

This was an interesting piece of advice I got. I had been contemplating cutting my hair really short before the baby is due, with the idea that I won’t have a lot of time to take care of it, and I won’t want it to fall into the baby’s face or anything later.

My sister’s take on this was that she had the same impulse, but it’s better to grow it long enough to be able to tie every strand back from the face, because when it’s short, it’ll need to constantly be trimmed or it’ll fall in my eyes and drive me nuts when I don’t have a hand to spare.

Good one! I will take her advice and keep growing out my hair. I can get almost all of it back into a ponytail right now, so it’ll just need a little more.

I was just thinking the same thing the other day, actually. Low maintenance hair cuts for men and women are the opposite: super short for men, long enough for a pony tail for women. I regret not having enough time to grow mine out in time. Maybe I’ll try the buzzed look out for size. 🙂

There’s always the headband/kerchief route, so there are backup plans aplenty. 🙂
