Once upon a time, there was a girl with some frizzy, wild hair.
One day the girl got sick of the hair and decided it had to go. She went to a hair dresser and had it all chopped off. This incident became formally known as the Haircut Disaster of 2002. Realizing what a terrible thing she had done, the girl swore off short hair from that day on. She couldn't stand inflicting the masses with such a terrible fate again. If the girl was going to get the man of her dreams, she needed enough hair to actually look like a girl.So from 2002-2009, The girl only occasionally trimmed her hair. She shunned scissors and fire--fearing that more disasters might ensue.
The girl liked her hair long. She could do lots of interesting things with her hair.
She could tie it in a knot. She could wear it in a bow. She could compete with Lara Croft and Princess Leia.But then, one day after a shower, the girl took a good look at her hair. And decided it had become freakishly long. Any longer and she would start calling herself Rapunzel.
Before she could second-guess herself, the girl grabbed a pair of scissors and started cutting.
10 inches later (keep in mind that it's curling):
