Beautifully Different

I have pretty short hair, because I’m lazy, and I’ve found that it actually looks good on me.  I’ve tried the grow out, the straightening, you name it. But at the end of the day, I would wear it in a ponytail. I am constantly making fun of myself.  It is “chubby girl humor”. I often get referred to as a boy in public, then I get an “Oh I’m sorry.”  It can be frustrating.  But I take it in stride and when I’m not working, I try to “girl it up”.  I have become the master of headbands in the past year or so.  I guess it is my trademark. But sometimes, having short hair can be frustrating.

#Reverb10 DAY 8: Beautiful

I’ve had tons of people tell me that they wish they could have short hair, and that they admire me for it.  I guess I should probably learn to embrace it, but some days it is a love and hate.  I know it is easy for people to recognize me because I’m usually the only girl with the short hair, and I can dress quite funky sometimes.

And maybe, it is just my teeth.  I have some pretty rad teeth.  I paid a ton of monies for these teeth.  I posted about my journey with veneers in 2008.  I have absolutely no regrets about doing this.  Because when I’m having a bad hair day, I can always look in the mirror and see my pretty teeth.

P.S. This is me, trying to take self-portraits of my cute outfit a few weeks ago, while walking Angry Kid to school.

December 8 – Beautifully Different.

I love your short hair too- I've always had shoulder length (or longer) hair and maybe someday will be brave enough to chop it all. Hopefully I'll rock it like you do!

I'm a short hair girl, too. I tire of it and grow it out, but I prefer it short and my husband does even more. You look darling!

you rock the short do - I love it. It took me years to grow mine out and it's a constant temptation to just whack it all back off :) (but seriously - only someone a little blind would be mistaking you for a boy... were you wearing a big plaid shirt and no frou frou flowers that day???)

I could never pull off the short hair...it looks fantastic on you! And if I had the money, I would get veneers, no question about it. It's funny to read this post because I just started a post on loving myself for who I am and what I've got to work with instead of always wanting to change myself. Kinda fits along the same lines of this post.

I love your short hair and wish I were brave enough (and rich enough) for new teeth. I love my bright red hair and ghostly white skin even though they caused a lot of heartachevas a child.
