Fantasy Hair Makeovers
From Short to Glam
I got it right for a night of karaoke with my coworkers. Wearing a slinky, back-revealing halter top taught me that longer hair not only looks sexy, but it feels sexy, too. With every move, those extra inches of hair tickled my neck, brushed along my shoulders and caressed my back.
Likewise, I couldn't keep my hands off my hair. I ran my fingers through it and cradled it around my shoulders like a comfy stole. My husband didn't have to worry about the whistles and stares from men -- I was so busy having an affair with my hair, I barely noticed.
While my new style was a big hit with my friends, coworkers and even strangers, my husband was less enthusiastic. "I need to get used to it," he said. Later, though, I caught him staring at me with a goofy grin.
"You know, you look like a superhero," he said. Finally, a compliment! I certainly felt like super girl. My long hair made me feel more comfortable with myself and able to guiltlessly enjoy the fun of feeling pretty. No small feat!
I've decided to grow out my hair. Accordingly, I've been practicing saying "thank you" to any comment on future hair lengthening. And I've even taken my hairdresser off speed dial.
