*UPDATE: Please do read the comments on this post – there is pure gold located there for those that wear hair AND those that don’t! They are located after the the post, scroll down.*
I have a simple question today that I’d love to get your feedback on.
If you’re wearing hair, what is one thing that you can do now that you couldn’t (or wouldn’t) do before wearing hair?
If you’re not wearing hair yet and are struggling with your thinning bio hair, what’s the one thing that you WISH you could do? How is your hair holding you back?
I’ve done a lot of thinking about this lately, and it really hit me a few weekends ago. If I had to choose just ONE thing that wearing hair affords me to do, it’s taking family pictures.
(Yes, I can send out cheesy holiday cards!)
This is only the second year that we’ve had family photos done, and I’ve worn my Noriko Milan, albeit in different colors, each year.
Prior to wearing hair, I’d never dream about actually spending money to have our photos done.
Heck, I don’t think I wore my hair down more than ten times between 2011-2013. It was always in a ponytail, because that way I could tease the crown and make it look like I had more density than I did.
But, ponytails are rarely for pictures. Which meant family photos just weren’t happening.
But now…NOW I can document our family through the years without worrying about my hair. Instead, I can worry about all the normal things—my smile! my weight! my unruly children!—that most women do, without having the state of my wimpy hair add to the chaos.
Here I am, post photo shoot:
You betcha I have fake eyelashes on.
So, what’s your thing?
Non-hair-wearers: What’s the one thing you want to do, but can’t, because of your hair?
Hair-wearers: What can do you now that you couldn’t do before?
I’m really looking forward to your comments!
…and to send out Christmas cards. I admit it.
