Project Snip

So, Project Snip. I can’t say it with certainty yet since this is a scheduled post, but it’s probably a huge success by now.

Oh, right, yeah. I should probably start off by explaining what project snip is about. Those of you who know me in real life or have seen pictures of me (or those poor lost souls who accidentally visited my “about me” page back when it still had an image on there) will know that my head is characterized by the lush forest that thrives on it. A large, bushy mass or curls. Not like an afro though. (If only it were.)

Throughout the years, I’ve had the “go cut it short” thing thrown at me many, many times. And I always refused. Why? I’m a stubborn little prick, but the hair also holds some significance for me. I started growing it long right around the time high school started getting fun, I found great friends, all that good stuff. To me, it signified better times. Recently though, the pestering became a lot more frequent, and people even started pooling in money I’d “earn” if I went and got my hair cut. Kind of ridiculous I know, but eventually I got convinced, went “ah why the fuck not”, and did it.

hairstyle change
Sorry, best pictures I could find.

Choosing a hairstyle was… not very hard. It was done for me, and little alternatives were presented, so eh. Apparently it’s a very fashionable haircut. The picture’s a bit deceiving. It’s symmetrically cut, so I can swing it both ways, or make it stand upright or whatever. But with so little hair… it sure feels different! The things I’m used to doing go way differently now. Washing my hair takes a lot less time, but I can no longer fiddle with it and make tiny curls behind my ears. Yeah.

So what’s with Project Snip? It’s cutting my hair, but without telling anyone about it. Except the select few who went with me and paid for it all. Already got some people very surprised. Some people… my parents and sister. There’s a party thing tonight I’ll be attending, and we’ll try and see if I can go unrecognized. Should be hella fun.

If I had to be perfectly honest… I’m pretty okay with it so far. Of course, it’ll take a lot of time to get used to, but that’s normal right? I still can’t believe I did this, but at least I don’t hate my new look.

Maybe change isn’t that bad? I should probably just stop being a stubborn little prick either way.

    The afro was pretty badass, but I think the new look is good for you. Then again I’m a fan of those trendy dude haircuts. I have one myself that I can’t live without (my David Tennant Doctor Who hair) and I love it.

    No matter how you look at it, that was an afro. It was a beautiful creature. It had a life, and probably had a family and a stable job to provide for them. I do know what it’s like to be pressured to get your hair cut though. Unfortunately I gave in before people started pooling money together. Wankers.
