UU Bloggers Hair Jinx

This is for those of you who look for bad news to come in threes. First, it started with Peacebang and her annual hair color disaster. Then, Matt Kinsi discovered unwanted, and most pre-mature, gray hair. Now I have managed to make a monstrosity of the back of my head.

I wear my hair very short and have taken to cutting it myself (I can be quite notional at times). So yesterday, I cut my hair and the front looks very cute, if I do say so myself. Unfortunately, there was an accident with the clippers in the back and I am now left with something horrible. This is not just my hyper-sensitive opinion; every member of my family will verify that this is indeed at hot mess. It is gamine in the front and punk in the back. The only possibly solution is to make like Lizard Eater and buzz my whole head and I am not quite willing to go that far. By the way, LE, you have truly glorious hair and I admire your bravery.

So I dyed my hair a darker color last night to help camouflage the disparity in length, and now I hate the color. I think I am just in for a pretty ugly month while I wait for this to grow out. I will just have to face everyone for a while.

Strangely, I am not nearly as upset about this as I would have been in the past. I have really bad hair for the next month or so no matter what I do. There are worse things than that. I am quite surprised that I am so calm about this; I wouldn’t have been in the past. As a matter of fact, I am much happier with my emotional state than I am upset about my hair.

So for the rest of you UU bloggers out there, as well as other readers, it should be safe to go the barber/hairdresser now. We’ve got the jinx covered.


  1. I had the frizzes yeateday, but that kinda pales in comparision.

  2. This is hilarious. I can't wait to see it!

  3. Consider cute hats. I had a hair disaster a few years ago.

    (I have long, light brunette hair that was cut too short and too layers, which accentuated the frizz, so that I looked like I had cocker spaniel ears.) So I invested in a few cute hats.

    I discovered that I like hats.

  4. I cut my families hair. One day I was really grumpy and Husband wanted a hair cut. Since I wasn't happy about having to do it, I didn't pay attention to whether or not the guard was on the razor. Of course it wasn't, and he had to go to work with a nice bald spot on the back of his head. Thankfully he had a good sense of humor about it! At least short hair fixes itself pretty quickly!
