My gorgeous friend Keith Carpenter has been cutting my hair since the early ’90s. We’ve been through a lot of styles together, including pixies and perms.
Yesterday, when he indicated a lock of hair near my face and asked, “What if we cut this off completely?”, I replied, “Why not?” I figured it wasn’t a lot of hair — just enough to better show off my earring designs and aggravate an acquaintance who always commands me to grow out my hair. If I can promote my jewelry and say IDGAF to someone at the same time, it’s a no-brainer.
So … can you see the little shorn patch right above my ear? I’m holding the rest of my hair back to show you, otherwise it would be pretty well covered.
Keith was disappointed I wasn’t wearing any earrings, but I promise I’ll get a picture with a pair next week.
While I’m on the topic of IDGAF, my small IDGAF necklace is now available in silver. Click the photo below to purchase.
Going back to hair, I recently listened to the 1983 song “Jeopardy” by The Greg Kihn Band and remembered how much I loved the mullet ‘do on the runaway bride at the end of the music video.
In 1983, my hair was too short to do that style, but look at what I had going on in 2008.
I guess you never forget your first (hair) love!
