Changing My Hair
I develop areas of expertise slowly, focusing on one at a time with great concentration. First, I studied clothes; later, makeup; and now, hair. I've been listening to you guys talk about changing your hair-styles, coloring your hair, and growing or cutting your hair. It was making me envious.
Then I realized, hey! If you can do it, so can I! Who's stopping me?
I mean, you all know the artifice involved in my presentation, so I'm not going to pretend I'm actually growing my hair or dying it. But I want to at least create the illusion of doing that for the joy of trying new looks.
Specifically, I'm thinking of hair that is longer and lighter in color. I don't have enough charisma to go all the way to blonde, but I might try light brown. And I've always wanted long hair. In fact, I've dreamed about that my whole life. A long, lustrous mane is a traditional hallmark of femininity.
What do you think? Should I try a new hair-style?
