What About Bob?

There’s something liberating about cutting all your hair off.  In the 1920s, short hair and shorter dresses became the symbol of defying authority and embracing modernity.  A few weeks ago, my best friend Whitney broke the rules, cut her hair, and bought a tube of red lipstick.  She’s what I’d call a modern day flapper.  Check out her new ‘do here.

Isn’t she pretty?

I, on the other hand, was not quite ready for the all-out gender-ambiguity that might come from me in a pixie cut.  In fact, as a child, I had a moment in a restaurant where the waiter asked what “he” would want for dinner, and I was scarred into permanently thinking I have boyish features.

So, I thought… what about a bob?

So I did it!  Jordan from Salon n’fuse on 8th Ave did a great job.  And I’m going to go ahead and toot my own horn: I think it looks pretty darn good.
