I’m so shallow

Any guys reading this may want to just skip it.  You will probably not relate to it at all.  I have to admit it-I am shallow.  Today, I got my hair cut.  It is a very good cut.  If you have had a very good cut, you can tell the difference between it and just a regular cut. 

I can’t explain it, but I feel so much better.  Part of it is just that I lost a lot of weight by cutting off a lot of hair.  Wish I could lose a lot of weight by not eating, or exercising, without doing either of those things-but you know the chances of that. I got a referral from a woman I work with for this hair guy.  I like him a lot, he doesn’t make me feel too old, fat, or ugly, but doesn’t get that weird patronizing attitude, either.

In any event, here I am, feeling so much better just because of a  haircut.  It is amazing to me.  Why would this simple thing make such a difference to me?  I can’t explain it.  I hadn’t had a haircut for about 6 months-so it was pretty bad. I just hadn’t gotten around to it sooner.  I am making a promise to myself to treat myself to this much more often.   

I’ll just have to live with my shallowness.



  1. You’re not shallow ch…I think a lot of us feel refreshed and rejuvenated by a new hair cut; I know I do. Sometimes I trim my own hair because I haven’t made an appt. yet, and can’t stand it looking badly one more day. I use to cut my hair all the time; but I don’t trust myself as much these days.

    By the way…I tried to send you an e-mail in response to your comment on my blog; but it came back saying your address did not exist. Strange?

    I do appreciate your comment…and I agree with what you said. I seem to have the same follow-through problem and can find lots of excuses for not getting out and walking more. Truth is…I’m just lazy about it and prefer to do other things.

    I don’t think any of us are guaranteed a longer life…even if we go by every rule in the book. I believe it’s pretty much a crap shoot. I know people who followed every healthy rule they could…and still left this world earlier than they planned to. I’m not saying that following some healthy rules isn’t a good thing and doesn’t have its benefits; but I think you and I probably have pretty similar outlooks on this.

    Thanks again for coming by ch….take care of yourself… ~Joy

  2. I have this woman I go to who cuts my hair. I never know what to tell her about how to cut it, I just say: “Joyce, make me look good” and she does. Worth every penny.

  3. I don’t think you’re shallow for feeling good about a haircut.

    If you are, then I’m probably worse because my outward appearance affects my entire personality. I’m more sociable when my hair actually looks decent, or when I’m wearing a cute outfit…or killer pair of heels…or a cool necklace, well, you get the idea.

  4. Not shallow at all: all we have to immediately show our inside is our outside. Someone who is happy with how they look cheers everyone else up. Mind you, I’m not sure I’ve ever had a really good haircut, perhaps I just have crappy hair!!

    Some days I seriously think about a wig. For women at least, our hair is really, really important. So go and enjoy!
