It's that time of year...

My annual mulletting!

Mullet Girl, circa 2005.
Back story:  I have pretty much had a mullet since I have had control over my hairstyle.  My mullet's heyday was in college and the few years after.  I didn't realize I had a mullet... But there I was, fresh from the salon, stone sober waiting in line at a bar to meet up with friends.  There's a large group in front of me, and a large group behind me in line.  I asked the bouncer if I could just squeeze in since I'm all alone here and there are my friends *WAVE!* already inside. He told me to wait a moment and he'll see what he can do.

Enter life-altering under age drunk girl behind me.


Oh god.  I know not what to do.  Do I have a mullet?  Let's see.  Yes.  Yes, this is a mullet.  I have no choice but to clutch my hair in sober realization and take this abuse in fear that if I turn around some sort of "business in the front" comment will finish me.

It's ironic because it's been way too long since I've had my hair cut, and I have a mullet now more than ever.  Because after all my hair fell out postpartum, it's now growing in all at the same rate... so under my too-long hair, I have a full head of 2 inch hair growing in.  Essentially a men's haircut under a woman's haircut.  = mullet.  Unfortunately it is not currently possible to conceal my Lloyd Christmas bangs.

Very excited to get many inches chopped tomorrow morning.  Anything is an improvement, friends.

dude, i got my first haircut since it all fell out and then started to come back in.

the chick kept being like

"WOW. i have NEVER seen this much regrowth. what? how much hair actually fell out?"

and i'm all: ALL OF IT.

my lloyd bangs and men's-haircut-under-ladiez-haircut are bringing me down, yo. (tho a trip to the salon def helped. enjoy your cut!!)

My pink shoulder in the picture says hi.

The best part of "mullet girl" night is all night in the bar I kept asking "which one is she? I want to confront her!" and you wouldn't tell me, for fear of what might happen :)
