So the other day I had an event at my workplace. I got all dolled up (does this make me sound old), put my hair up and was feelin' fine. When I got there, my "superior" asked if I had done something different with my hair. Yeah, like duh!!! It is up. (My hair is normally never up.)
She went on to say (in front of a third person) that she liked my hair better a couple months back when I had a bob. She said that it was a lot more "becoming" on me. (I've been growing it out for months, so it is now shoulder length.)
She continued to say it looked much "chic-er" and that in Europe (she is of European descent) women rarely wear long hair and that (here's the kicker): "Women 'beyond a certain age' do not wear long hair." Hint, Hint...
Like, has she never heard of Demi Moore. Demi has some years on me (I won't say how many) and she wears her hair longer than mine and she looks stunning. Maybe Demi needs to get a more "becoming" bob. FYI - those scissors in the picture are to cut her hair, not neck, as it would appear. I'm getting lazier and lazier with the photoshopping, it would seem.
Anyhoo, this is the kind of clap trap I get to listen to. It was like she stabbed me in the gut. My excited mood quickly deflated. Then I started getting that paranoia of whether my hair really does look like crap long.
I was all set to make an appointment to get my hair chopped into a more "becoming style" when MB stopped me. (He likes long hair, particularly gorgeous long blond hair, but there is none of that here).
What are your thoughts on this latest conundrum??? Enquiring minds want to know :-)
