I started shaving my head when I was 14 and have not grown it long in the 17 years since then. I decided to grow it out to a short but stylable length and like it but only when it’s cut right and styled.
The motivation was to have something more professional than bald for my future internship and career as an IBCLC. Though I still very much want to pursue that, I no longer know when it will be. In the meantime, the cons list of having this haircut is growing: $13 every few weeks, a barbershop that doesn’t make appointments is hard with a 3 year old, the back not being right, sticking up funny if I don’t style it or flat from wearing a winter hat. The cons list of bald is merely that it is cold in the winter. If I had a style that I liked as much as this but looked okay not done, that would be okay too, but I can’t imagine myself with longer hair than I currently have.
