Hairy situation...

I sometimes wish I were a man. Nope, I don't want to have license to belch loudly or spend hours watching sports...I just want easier hair. Seriously, if guys knew what a girl has to go through to get her hair to look good, they would have more sympathy for us and appreciation for our beautifully-coiffed heads.

My hair becomes increasingly more time consuming as a ratio to its length...makes sense. In high school, I had hair to the middle of my back or longer, and it took me a good twenty minutes to blow dry that mane (I also had some hot Now, with much shorter hair, I can blow dry in seven minutes. Straightening or whatever else is not included in these times. Just take blow drying time and double it to include time to make it actually DO what I want it to do. That's a good fifteen minutes a day spent on my hair.

Kind of seems like a waste? Trust hair left to its own devices is not a pretty sight. If I get out of the shower and let my hair air dry, it's an unruly mess of wave and poof. I'm ok with investing a little bit of time to look somewhat presentable.

So here comes my dilemma...I have bangs that are growing out. They're in that in between stage where you can't get them to look good as bangs and you can't smooth them back into the rest of the hair yet. I'm about ready to give in to cutting them. So do I give them the chop and stick with bangs or do I suffer through a few more bad hair months and grow them out?

I've decided to let my hair hair get a little longer than it currently is, which is just past shoulder-length...the most difficult length for my hair. It can't decide which way it will flip--under or out--so it does both and ends up looking miserable. Please let me complain about my hair some more. :)

I like my hair long and I like it short...I just can't have it both ways at once. When it's long, I can do it up and pretty. When it's short, it looks really cute in headbands and it's a lot quicker to do. Temporary extensions? That's going to be the only way to keep me happy.

so i forgot to mention your cake was AWESOME! Anyway I'm not the one to ask about hair, i'm so undecided about my own. I'm sure you'll make the right decision. I think you should pray about it.
