because blonde hair makes you feel less manly when it's all short.....but boy did I get ready fast...I could just put some wax in it and go!
oh the many lives of my hair....
how we've experimented with red hair....blue and green (partly on accident)...every length imaginable from shaved head....to short chin length bob....to boy hair....to Rapunzel-length "climb up my hair"......to finally growing it out from my years of short hair prison...due to the previously mentioned "shaved-head" incident....
a long, long, time ago.....I watched some music awards show...and as I saw Erykah Badu, march down the red carpet, looking stunningly beautiful....with a shaved head....I thought for 3.7 seconds and said...I LOVE how beautiful and confident she looks with a shaved head (and, think how fast I'll get ready!)....within
1.4 minutes.....I was in the bathroom with all my hair fallen....into the sink
the best part was walking into the restaurant where I worked at the time...and everyone looking in awe (AKA horror at my hair...) ha ha ha ha
and after many accidental "trims" which turned into "head shaving #3"....I rejoice at feeling my hair on my back in the shower, again!
BUT I will tell you this...you feel a certain tough-ness, when you have no hair....like people were scared to talk to me....ha ha ha....and people thought I was just this fearless brave-hair-wearer! SO to all my ladies going through chemo or anything where they don't have all their long locks (yet!)...know that I wore the no-hair look too....and I loved it! I admire a woman with a shaved head (whether by choice or chemotherapy)...because it takes a lot of guts to bold and strong and say "this is my face, with no hair to hide behind, this is my soul shining brightly through my eyes...and I am strong and I will get through whatever challenges are before me....a little think like long hair doesn't make me a woman.....my heart and soul does!" (thank you Evelyn for bravely rocking you beautiful shaven head at the Glaminars in NY...I just thought you were one stylish sister!!! I am so proud of you...huge love...kandee)
Travel with me as we walk down kandee's-hair-of-the-past.....
this was taken at this awesome furniture store on La Brea on LA, that sells things like GIANT hand shaped chairs...and these were old movie theater seats...tons of them...this was post shaving...grow out
ahhhh...this was very Marilyn Monroe -ish!
oh...now this was in high school...kandee circa age 16! yeah...i did those streaks in the front myself....ha ha ha ha
this was shortly....well some months after the hair-shortening...you can see bits of the hair in front of my ear.....(oh man!!! Look, that's back when I had my old yellow ring!!!!)
