Dammit. Five weeks ago I got a great haircut. I mean one of the best haircuts I’ve ever had. And it was growing into a really interesting collection of intentionally messy tufts. But then a couple days ago I went back for a touch up by the very same person and I’ve been left with the shittiest haircut I’ve had in ages. I look like a fucking friar now. I feel like I need to hide for about three or four weeks until there’s growth. Worst of all, all the parts that are supposed to be messy are now neat. Exactly how it isn’t supposed to be. This isn’t just about hair; the intentionally messy haircut made me feel looser, less uptight. A quality I sometimes lack. So I really miss it now. I know women tend to go on like this (more than men). Now I understand why. There’s personality invested in a haircut.
