The post title reminded me of that old rap song that went, “My neck…my back…” and I won’t finish the rest. This isn’t going to be that kind of post.
When I talk about a sore neck, I’m referring to the fact that my Locks of Love goal has finally been reached, but the weight of my hair is making my neck sore! This will probably be the last time in my life that I have long hair. I’m 32 years old and hope to have kids soon. Is long hair very practical when you’re rounding up a bunch of munchkins? Doesn’t seem like it. And then after a certain age, longer hair doesn’t look right on some women. One exception is the beautiful Emmylou Harris:
With my luck, my hair color will turn out to be some ugly, mottled mix of brown and gray. I think you have to have a uniform gray color and few facial wrinkles to pull off longer hair at an older age.
Even though it’s a pain in the neck (har har), I’m going to keep growing my hair so there will be enough length for a decent new short hairstyle. My hair is thick and has some natural wave, so here’s what I’m thinking of:
This is Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland. What do you think? Do you think it would require too much work?
Are there any other cute short hairstyles you like? Please share!
