It's been eight weeks since the last time I buzzed my head, and it's been growing pretty quickly since then. I've been taking a headshot of myself every Friday and plan to continue it for at least a year so I can see visually how my hair grows. I'll occasionally post progress pictures and then I'll compile all the photos into a video after the year is through.
So here's what I look like today:
I think it's officially long enough now that it looks like a super short pixie cut, and I can no longer be mistaken for a boy or a cancer patient.
In all honesty I really liked buzzing my head; it was incredibly therapeutic somehow. I guess it's a bit hard to explain, but it felt almost as though I was wiping the slate clean, starting anew. There were certainly days when I'd wake up and see myself in the mirror and wonder what on earth I had done, but mostly I just enjoyed the process and surprisingly learned a lot about myself along the way.
Obviously I still have a long way to go before I have long hair again; I'm guessing it'll take me at least half a decade to get it to the length I'd like it to be, and I look forward to recording the progress and having fun with each new hairstyle as it grows.
