Locks of Love VS. Love of Locks


It has been 2 years since I donated my hair...so I figure it is that time again. I put it in a braid and had a friend measure it and chop it off...10 inches. It was a little scary, actually I didnt want to deal with the stress of my spur of the moment decision so I just put it in a ponytail. I wondered what Rob would say because he prefers long hair...

So, it was in a ponytail when he got home so he didnt notice for a couple hours. Then, right before bed, he asked "did you cut your hair?" Me:"yes..."
Rob: "how short? is it like those pictures of you in junior high?"
Me:"I just cut off 10 inches"
Rob:"why do you always have to cut off 10 inches, cant you just cut off like 4?"
Silence. "Good night." lights off and more silence.
Rob:"I just love long hair."
silence
Rob:"long hair is just classy"
silence. sniffles.tears
Rob:"Did I hurt your feelings? Dont worry, it will grow back. Im sure it will look fine."

I dont think I am the one worrying that it will grow back! But, 2 days later I think we are all used to it!

I think your hair looks great! Mine's getting pretty long, longer than I've had it in 10 years I think. I've never donated my hair before, and that's what I want to do... Guys are funny. In my case, Carlos has actually been bugging me a while to just get it cut already! I was like ummm, I'll cut mine when you cut yours. So there.

I love your new hair! I think it makes you look younger. I bet it's nice not having so much hair to do with three other heads of hair to do too.

Seriously, some men and their love of long hair. :)

I think you look fabulous! Of course, you have great hair anyway and it grows fast. So Rob has nothing to worry about. I love that you donated your hair.

Love it! I've always been a fan of shorter hair... and totally disagree with Rob:) Short is much more sophisticated and shows confidence- nothings more classy than that!
