Well. Now I feel like I have a buzz cut.

Some cool hair. 1912

"At no time is the arrangement of the hair so noticeable as in the summer, when the average healthy American goes hatless. At about sixteen or seventeen years the hair is generally worn up on the head, and if the present modes are followed, and the hair arranged deep over the brow and ears and low in the back, the youthful grace and charm will not be sacrificed.
"Girls of fourteen and fifteen may wear their hair parted in the center or on either side, or combed back in a soft pompadour with the ends of the hair fastened with a barrette as shown below. For straight hair, the plaited mode at the bottom of this page is very pretty. A flat bow is suitable for day wear, or a satin band for parties."

This one also looks promising, and I was already thinking of getting a hairband or ribbon or something to wear, from looking at period pictures.

Also, I love how her highlights end up in the front wraps. Very cool.

About my hair.

I would post pictures with this, but I suck at taking pictures of my hair. I’ll work on it.

Right now I have what most folks would consider long hair. I consider it long hair. I don’t consider it very long hair, which is what I want. It’s currently about hip/tailbone length, and I’m aiming, mainly, for classic length (where your butt meets your legs, or the tops of your thighs for the classy out there).

I also want to get it under control as far as frizziness. I have somewhat wavy hair—not straight, but not particularly wavy at this length either (and definitely not curly).

If you’re on LHC or know that system, I’d classify myself as 2a/M?/ii-iii (not sure on the thickness one since my hair is not loose right now and I don’t think I really have more than four inches; not sure on type, because, well, I’m not sure).

There’s more, but I’ll do that later.

Well. Now I feel like I have a buzz cut.
