Today I was killing time browsing in H&M (I know this sounds dangerous, but I didn’t buy anything!) when a little girl walked by with her mom, stared at me, then turned back to her mom and said, “Eewwww, look at her hair!” To make the situation even better, the girl’s mom pulled her aside well within earshot and scolded her, “You can’t say things like that to people! If someone likes their hair that way, that’s how they like it!” Um, thanks.
This experience took me back to the time my youngest brother, who was five then, ran his hand down my sister’s flat-ironed hair and said, “Your hair feels like silk,” then ran his hand down my curly hair and said, “Your hair feels like cotton.” Which reminds me of yet another hilarious hair comment from a child...this time directed at my friend, whose younger brother told her that her hair looked like “weeds.”
I’m not sure what to take from today’s critique, though now I’m kind of looking forward to getting my hair cut back to pixie length more than ever because I feel like it has gotten scruffy looking. Of course, once after I got my hair cut super short, I walked into a Rubio’s restaurant on Halloween in a long coat and scarf and heard a little girl ask her mom, “Mommy, is that girl dressed up as a boy for Halloween?” At least she knew I was female.
