I love dying my hair weird colors or color combinations, I’ve been dying my hair since I was about ten or so I believe. It is rarely a solid color for longer than a month. I’ve never been one for cutting it short, but at the same time “weird” hair styles are fun.
I’ve always been fascinated with mohawks and liberty spikes, but the times I had tried I never was able to get my hair to stand.. probably because it was too long (see one paragraph up).
Recently, I got it into my head that I was going to do it! I was going to shave my head into a mohawk and cut it a bit to make it stand. And it worked! Yes! Checking mohawk/liberty spikes off my bucket list.
But what about my husband, though? What did Brian think?
Brian is the one who shaved my head. It was nothing for him to bat an eye at.
We’ve been married coming up on ten years and have two boys together. Come on. He’s met my family, loved me at my worst, seen my guts on the operating table (C-section mama), and on. Shaving my head is next to nothing compared to most things.
Yes, I know I could shave your own head or go to a salon. But why? Its easier and cheaper for my to have him do it. Its not like I wanted something super difficult. And honestly, this felt super, but strangely intimate.
I can’t even fully say why.
Because he approved of it?
Because the feel of his fingers on my (almost) hairless scalp?
Because I was putting my trust in him not to screw it up?
Honestly, I have no idea. But, as I sat there watching my, at the time, blue hair fall to the bathroom floor, trying not to cry, I was loving every second of the feel of the clippers going over my skull. The tingles that ran down my spine. It was amazing. #marriagegoals
Now I kind of know how all those women felt in Edward Scissorhands when they had their hair cut by Johnny Depp (Edward). Haven’t seen it? You absolutely MUST!
I’ve had him touch up the sides since then. I can’t say how long I will keep it this way, but I’m enjoying it.
Ladies, if you ever have the inclination to have your head shaved, let your significate others shave it for you. You won’t regret it!
