Follicle Drama: An Update

To cut or not to cut? Bangs or butt cut? These are the decisions that are plaguing our generation and paralyzing a nation.

Just to keep you abreast to the livelihood of my split ends, I find it necessary to let you all know that I’ve made a decision. I’ve reached an armistice with myself and my hair and that armistice looks a lot like…

I feel like with this haircut, people will assume that I read more than I actually do, which is forever my ultimate goal. It is going to take a few more months of growing to get to the same length, but I’m willing to do the work.

I can already hear my grandma telling me to get my hair out of my face and I can’t wait!
