Drastic Changes

Yesterday I cut 8 inches off of my hair, my husband was shocked. Has anyone done a drastic change on their looks and surprised your family/freinds?

  • I did something similar years ago. My bf came in and looked at it and said I looked like a lesbian. What does a lesbian look like? I don't know. I change my hairstyle/color every so often. Get used to it. He's not my bf anymore.

  • When I was 16 I had my hair just past my shoulders and I shaved it all off because no one thought I would.

  • Yes I basically cut off all my hair. I had a relaxer and I decided to go natural. It has grown out a little more. But when it starts to grow it will be thicker and healthier. My hubby was shocked but he help my cut some spots i missed. He loves rubbing my short hair.

  • Apparently only lesbians have short hair, because when I shaved my head I got called a "dyke" all of the time by the morons I went to school with.
    I think it's funny how people thing that calling someone a homosexual is an insult. The only thing I find insulting about it is that they think it's a bad thing and that I SHOULD be offended by being called gay.

  • I hope you donated it to Pantene. They take 8 inches, when others need longer donations. I did this in April. I didn't surprise my husband though. He knew I was going to do it.
