7 Contemplations Of Cutting Your Hair Short Again

7 Contemplations Of Cutting Your Hair Short Again

That's not a blush brush... that's my pony tail.

Here are a compilation of the thoughts you have while sitting in a salon chair, fearing that your hair stylist might turn you into Edna Mode from The Incredibles.

1. You're not trying to look like Lord Farquad on your graduation day

We all remember the most eligible bachelor from "Far Far Away" with that iconic bob. Although, I must say that a crimson cap would be pretty cool, eh?

Yes? No? Go Cougs, anyway.

2. Your ponytail will be mistaken for a community blotting brush

Next time you're in line to waste another five bucks on a tall, hot, white chocolate mocha — with non-fat milk and no whip — during rush hour at your local Starbs, be careful not to stand too close to the girl with the beat face standing behind you.

One movement and your hair will be dipped dyed in the shade sun beige, honey tan, or whatever the heck shade of glob is packed on her face.

3. All the leafy ladies (all the leafy ladies)

Your ponytail will always remind someone of something. High ponytails in particular bounce like the head of a radish.

4. Hence the tick-tack-toe canvas behind your head

Slick ballerina buns are nearly impossible. There is no way to get rid of the flyaways at the nape of your neck without using bobby pins in perpendicular patterns to tack them down.

5. Good mushroom to you, too

It's 7 a.m., and the sun isn't the only thing that has risen because — WHOA — would ya look at that? So did your roots.

6. Showers can be brutal

As soon as the water runs cold, you don't have a protective shield on your neck to delay the cold shock down your back by at least two seconds.

7. "Did you cut your hair again?"

Last spring, I cat walked into the new semester with my new, and flouncy 'do. On some days I would wear my hair up, and on some days I'd let my bob swing free.

There's always going to be someone that will ask you the same question on a weekly basis: "Your hair looks shorter. Did you cut your hair again?" This person will probably go at it for the next six weeks every day you wear your hair down.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
