Secret Garden

There was a decree put out by my father when I was a wee one that all tiny females in our house would be of the piggy tail wearing variety for as long as possible. I was happy to oblige and for most of my formative years I was a staunch long haired girl. I loved it. I used to put it in hot rollers every. single. day of high school. Then about a week before graduation I decided I wanted short hair with my cap and gown and I made my mother hack most of it off. That was 14 years ago and I've been a shortie ever since. And I like it just fine thank you very much.

But. I will confess that sometimes after a little too much Gossip Girl I fantasize a bit about having long flowing locks again. So I admit that tonight when I bought the brown wig I am using for my Halloween costume (you'll see), I might have spent kind of a silly amount of time playing with it in front of the mirror. I love my short hair but there is something super girly about a nice cascade down your back.

Oh my, you look just like when you were a teenager! I mean you look that young! Something about the length that just brings back that that cute little face shape. I do like your short hair - but if you ever want to liik 16 again - wear the wig!

I'm a die-hard short cut fan too, but I know what you mean. The trick for me is remembering that my hair never actually looked as nice as those gossip girls, and then I don't miss it so much.
