I can't believe I'm complaining about my hair, of all things. But it has ventured past cute pixie territory straight into curly mullet land, and I need to get it fixed, and quickly. I'm hoping my stylist can guide me toward something more like this
and less like this
No offense to Scarlett Johansson, but that is not the look I'm aiming for. 

On so many levels, I feel like any hair is good hair (except armpit hair; that is still just annoying). But six months out from my last broad spectrum chemo infusion, and I finally--finally--could use a hair cut. 

It's the little things, don't you agree?

So I've been searching all over the Internet for advice on how to grow out a pixie because I hope I'm that lucky. I hope this chemo is working. I hope I get to stay on it long-term. I hope I get to keep this hair, even if there are umpteen awkward grow-out phases in my near future.

It's funny, but in all the time I've spent bald--or nearly bald--in the last couple of years, I've sort of forgotten what it means to keep up with a hairstyle. There is apparently a lot of finessing that goes into gracefully growing out one's hair. And in true Jen fashion, I am stumbling all over the place on that front right now. 

I am even a hairstyle klutz, you guys. 

But it looks like my stylist can fit me in next week, so I'll post some updated hair photos then.

  1. When I was trying to grow my short short hair out, I just used lots of bobby pins until I could have a bob. I hope your stylist has some better suggestions but loving that you're having this problem right now! :-)
