First off: got my hair cut.
I really like it. I think the back needs to be just slightly longer, a 4 on the clipper instead of a 3, and I wasn’t thrilled with the blow drying that made the top really straight. In reality if’s naturally wavy and I like it better a bit messy-looking. I’m also contemplating something like this but shorter:
Morrissey had awesome hair in the 1980s, and while I will never be that sexy, I think that would look good on me.
The Doc Martens came in and are the wrong size. Yay for free shipping and free returns. The button-down shirts came in and are excellent. A few ties showed up, and those are also excellent. Tomorrow I will be perusing YouTube because I’ve forgotten how to tie a tie. And then… pictures!
It was a little weird, talking to my hair stylist this afternoon. “I want short, queer, and punk,” I said. She messed up the last part when she blow-dried it straight, but I can fix that. I don’t know why it was weird. It’s not like I was just coming out to her today; she knows I’m genderqueer. Maybe it was specifically saying “queer” in the style description. As in, “I don’t want to look like a cisgender heterosexual.”
Anyway. Tomorrow: pictures of my attempts at hairstyling, and some new clothes. Fun!
