Bad Haircut

It's been about 20 years since the last time I received a haircut I really didn't like. It's a horrible thing, especially when the main problem is that they cut the hair too short. Sometimes you can get a very good hairstylist to fix a bad haircut, but no one can make your hair magically grow back.

I was horrified to realize that my new haircut makes me look like Keith Partridge. I actually started singing "I Think I Love You" on the el to my boyfriend to make my point. But after hanging out with friends I realized I don't really look like Keith Partridge as much as I look like Angie Dickenson around 1972. If you don't know who that is, don't bother to ask.

So I'm pretending to be one of those women who had really short hair but is now growing it out, but it's in that in-between stage when you wear a lot of clips and barrettes and tiny pigtails. That's what I'm pretending because then I can think "It's so much longer than it used to be. In no time at all, it'll be long enough for an up do."

I never want anyone at Mirror Mirror in Chicago to touch my hair ever again.

Anyone have a bad haircut story to help me feel less alone on this one?
