In May of 2006, I walked into a hair salon about a block from my school in Beijing, China, and told them to cut my hair. I held my fingers for explanation on length. When I stepped out, I looked like Halle Berry, except not quite so sexy. Since then, I’ve had only four cuts. I grew my hair past my waist. It was beginning to brush against the small of my back.
I began planning for this cut about eight months ago. And I LOVE it. I can still put it in a ponytail, even. Not too much change, but enough that I feel super pretty. We’ll see how long it lasts.
