I have short hair—so short that my stylist pulls out the buzzer when I sit in the chair. The second most common thing people say to me about it is “What does your husband think of your hair?” I respond to them in one of three ways:
- Nothing. He thinks nothing about it. Because he’s been in a coma for seven months.
- Well, he has a compulsive hair pulling condition, so it’s an unfortunate measure we have to take as a couple for my protection.
- He think it’s great, because he wants to make sure strangers get the opportunity to ask me uncomfortable and sexist questions.
Luckily, the most common thing I hear about my cut is “Whoa, your hairstyle is so badass. You must be a super fly chick who makes unconventional but awesome choices.” Because I say that to myself in the mirror every morning.
