I know very little about the upkeep and stylings of hair. I tend to air dry after shampoo and conditioner, and I’ve never coloured or done anything drastic to my hair. My haircut that happened yesterday was my first in many months, and it was needed. It feels much healthier and lighter, ready for spring. I am not the kind of person to really spend too much time worrying about my hair, it just needs to…exist.
So post-haircuts I tend to just embrace it, and enjoy it. Is it long enough to braid? Check. Long enough for a ponytail? Yup. I’ll worry about the shape and anything else tomorrow, today is just about going with the flow.
I think that’s what I’m going to take with me as a token into this rehearsal weekend (beginning tonight at Lonestar for margaritas and fajitas, the best way to start a galpal weekend full of theatre and good people); I am going to go with the flow, relax, elt it go. Things happen everyday without any prevention, without any control applied, and we can’t do anything to change them, so we have to just go with it, what else is there to do? No sense worrying, no sense crying or bothering others.
Just going about my days, minimal worry minimal stress, shucking all of the heavy bits of my life (for the weekend at least) and that’s what that haircut did for me yesterday.
