    Except At Home

    Now that it's getting long again I prefer it down when I go out. Just a big bunch of red curls most of the time but I do straighten it too. I can't wait for it to grow down my back again... it's getting there, slowly but surely.

    I Hide Behind My Hair.

    I wear my hair down mainly so I can hide behind it.I have been told that I look good with it up,but I am usually too self-conscious to wear it up. Occasionally I will wear it in two braids or pig tails,but only at night and if I'm going somewhere dark.

    Always Have.

    Simple

    My hair's currently too short for me to put it up in the first place. If I attempt it and then go out, chances are that bobble is lost forever. Lying by the side of the kerb, weeping to itself that it's lost forever. So to prevent this devastating scene, I wear my hair down...

    Like Linus's Security Blanket

    That's my hair, my security blanket. I can hide behind it, I can throw it over my shoulder and suck on my thumb if i want :P. I feel so much more secure with my hair down. Unfortunately, I'm required to wear it up at work. Hence, I always feel very vulnerable there. Other...

    My Hair

    Okay the last time I wore my hair in a ponytail was in seventh grade. The reason I quit was because my mom said I ears that reminded her of Dumbo. It's kind of funny, but nobody can see my ears if their covered up with hair. I like the feeling of being free though and the fact...
