So, I’ve been debating cutting my hair for some time now and here are the results… I got a pixie cut!
I have gradually gone from hair nearly down to my waist, to hair not even covering my ears, but I think my madness has paid off.
I spent a while asking for people’s advice and trying to decide, but eventually I booked the appointment and thought ‘it’s booked, no going back now’. I am extremely glad I did and would definitely recommend for anyone who is considering it to just go for it!
It’s taking some getting used to but I am absolutely loving it – it’s easier to wash, dry and generally manage. I can still style it in different ways if I want to using wax and putty (not gel as it gives my hair a ‘wet-look’ I’m not a fan of).
Now my hair is short I decided to get a helix piercing as well. I have wanted a piercing for ages and decided that now you can see my ears, I might as well give it a shot. My friend came with me and we both got our piercings done together. I’ve only had it for a couple of days and it is surprisingly LESS painful than I anticipated. Actually getting the piercing done hardly hurt (just some throbbing) and the aftereffects haven’t been bad at all. Despite any horror stories people try and tell you, I assure you that if you get your piercing done with a properly qualified person, you shouldn’t have any major problems!
Now I have one piercing, I have definitely become addicted and intend on getting more helix piercings once this one has started to heal.
Although I now have the problem that none of my forms of ID look anything like me, I absolutely love my new hairdo (and piercing) and have fallen in love with having short hair.
