Oh, say, can you see
My eyes—if you can
Then my hair’s too short

Yo, I didn’t cut it myself. A nice guy named Tony cut it. 5 inches! 5 pounds!

Here’s the before picture:

AH HA HA HA HA! I’m kidding. Here’s the real before picture:

Yikes! That looks like the scary Grudge girl. Here, quick, before you run and hide under your bed:

Phew. That’s better. Nothing like a jaunty bow to dispel grudge-girl fears.

To be honest with you, Cousin Itt scares me a lot more than those Japanese long-haired grudge-bearing girls who climb out of wells or out of your TV all covered in slime TO KILL YOU . . .

(comes out from under the bed)

Anyway, here’s the after shot:

HA! I’m STILL messing witchya! That’s me, compliments of Taaz.com, a cool site where you can make over your drab, everyday self. My current hair, despite being 5 inches shorter, is still about 20 feet longer than this style. But I like short hair. Here’s me with short blonde hair. And green eyes! And makeup! (And a manly jaw. Where did that come from?)

Here’s what I would look like as a transsexual drag queen:

Sadly, there were no options available to look like a Japanese horror grudge-girl.

But! Check this out. If you like scary Japanese movies about girls with long, black hair, here’s one about KILLER HAIR EXTENSIONS! No, I am totally serious. Watch the kick-your-ass-in-half trailer. It’s a parody, but there are some disturbing (read: COOL!) images. After you watch this, you’ll want to cut your hair immediately.

    I’m digging the transsexual drag queen look personally. I always try to leave the house with a least an inch of blue eyeshadow and cherry pink cheeks. It really helps me in my line of work- soliciting. Soliciting donations, that is.

    I wish I’d tried that before visiting my hairdresser. they always think they can ‘do’ something with my mop, despite my protestations.

    Y’know, one day I’d really like to leave a hairdressers and not be in tears? It’s a dream, I know.

    I guess it’s a real good thing I’m not a woman. I’ve had the same hairstyle since the 7th grade. Men can just pick one and stick with it. As Forrest Gump (movie version) would say, “One less thing…”

    OMG! It’s so pretty! I like it. =) Next, you should go bald in real life! Then you can wear fun, various wigs!

  15. 15 Kathy

    I love your long luxurious hair! I don’t have that myself. I always thought I had Nancy hair (of Nancy and Sluggo cartoon fame). It’s sad. I know.

    I hate it when the women sitting next to me at the salon tell me how they love my curls. They don’t realize what a curse it is. Do you think if I wore a bow on it, it’d look any better?

    Kathy, who wants the five inches of hair you got cut off.

    Singular Girl: I rather like that look myself. It’s pretty much how I look whenever I try to apply anything more than Dr. Pepper chapstick. Hey, good luck with that donations job!

    Tiggy: Never give up your dream. It’s just as possible as becoming a Hooters Girl, right?

    Shieldmaiden96: Me too!!! Loved the soundtrack when I was a kid (“Mom? What does ‘sodomy’ mean?”) and I loved the remake. I even love the Cowsills’ version. “Hallelujah, Mary loved her son, Why don’t my mother love me?”

    dcr: Are you saying you’re not the least bit tempted to try a makeover? Come on. I bet you’d look stunning in a platinum blond beehive! As for CommentLuv: yes, sigh. It does that sometimes. Remember the instructions: “…will try and parse your sites feed and display a link…” It’s trying!

    Babs – beetle: Well, that second “before” photo is real. And it is the front view. I planned to take an “after” photo but forgot. So, the photo of me on my Toronto post will have to do. Yes, PLEASE do a hair makeover and post the results!!!

    Fancy: SHAVE IT! For me? I would so love to shave my head, but then my husband would divorce me, and who would want a bald divorcee? But you could do it . . .

    The Hawg: Try sticking on the front (that’s where mine is) and see how mad she gets THEN!

    Cathouse Teri: Aw, thanks. It’s all about the hair.

    Jeff: Heh. No, that is actually a FRONT view. Not so talented now, am I?

    Susan: I tried, but I couldn’t get my fat face to fit into the face hole! It looks fun tho . . .

    chat blanc: I used to have a 12-year-old boy haircut, and I loved it. My face is probably too fat now to pull it off. Maybe I should lay off the M&Ms?

    Regan: See, you get me. I would love to wear fun, various wigs. You wait. One of these days . . .

    Kathy: A bow couldn’t hurt. And you do not have Nancy hair! I’ve TOUCHED it! It’s curly and beautiful. I wish I’d saved the 5 inches (and 5 lbs.), especially since no one believes I got that much cut off.

    Thanks for putting a bow in your hair so I don’t have to. And for trying the transexual drag queen look so I don’t have to.

    Could you pay my bills so I don’t have to?

  20. 20 Ernie

    It’s funny you should mention haircuts. Recently one of my Facebook Friends was complaining about the cost of a haircut. Being the good friend that I am, I offered to tie her to a chair and shave off all of her hair for her. The only payment I asked for in return was to be allowed to keep the hair. She never responded. But hey, I’ll do the same for you if you ever want.

    Tim: Aw, that’s sweet. I’d love to be remembered that way. I just put that movie at the top of my Netflix queue. Review (and screenshots!) coming soon.

    NaTuRaL: Yeah, I was disappointed that wasn’t an option. Maybe it isn’t a popular look? Hard to believe. You crack ME up, with your Donald Trump hair laying to the side, uninterested. That’s funny.

    Bill Libbey: I see it’s time to update my “I Won’t Do These Things” list. But I’m more than happy to try out the transsexual drag queen look. I may do it again!

    Ernie: Boy, your Facebook friend doesn’t know a good deal when she hears it. I’d have trouble giving up my hair, tho. What if you practice voodoo? Being tied to a chair and having my head shaved? I have no problem with that.

    Babs – beetle: Ooh! Can’t wait!

    Luxor: I hope your mom will try out a virtual haircut first—especially the tranny drag queen look. I think it works for everyone!

  24. 24 Stephanie in KY

    Aw, don’t leave us hangin’ without the “after” photo! I finally made the big leap about this time last year and cut off ALL of my hair. After 37 years of crazy, super-thick, frizzy, curly mop (think early-career Nicole Kidman), it was SUCH a relief to get rid of it. Now it’s kind of a pixie cut, boy-short (shorter than my husband’s), and it’s so easy. And much cooler, particularly during humidity season here in the South. So, I guess you could say that I cut off all my hair so you wouldn’t have to!

  25. 25 brooke regans friend

    ahhhh its the grude chick o wait its you whew and the make up is lovely

  26. 26 kev

    Wow, that’s a lot of hair. I probably use too much shampoo as it is, but I’m pretty sure if my hair was that long I’d go through a bottle a week. Maybe two.

    Thank goodness I’m a guy (and not a member of a 80s Hair Band)…

    Stephanie in KY: I meant to take an “after” photo but forgot. I was very happy with the cut, tho. I’m envious of your short haircut! I bet it looks cute. Thanks for doing that, tho I wish I could!

    brooke regans friend: Did I scare you? Which was scarier—grudge girl or the makeup?

    kev: My secret? Don’t wash it! Seriously, tho, I use too much shampoo as it is. And it takes forever to wash it. I probably could be in an 80s hair band if I just did a little ratting and teasing.

    I have wasted the entire afternoon at Taaz.com!! I think I look pretty good with green contacts…

  30. 30 JT

    The last time, I actually let someone cut my hair, she butchered it so badly, I was almost in tears. So then I had to go see someone else to get if fixed, and the first lady had butchered it so badly, I ended getting it all cut off to about an inch long. That was 2 1/2 years ago, and I have been very careful ever since then to only get in lightly trimmed. It’s finally reached my shoulders, and by god, if anything happens to it this time, I will unleash hell and hurt that person beyond all belief.
    ~Sigh~ I’ve always dreamed of having waist length hair, and maybe by the time I reach 80, it will happen. Then I’ll die! :)

    The Incredible Woody: Isn’t it fun? And you can really see what type of makeup looks good and then go out and BUY it. If you wear makeup. I think I look kind of scary with green contacts myself. You should totally post your TAAZ!

    JT: Oh, the traumatic, tear-filled hairdresser visit. Haven’t we all had at least one of those? Yours sounds awful—I don’t blame you for being scissor-shy. I believe you will reach your goal of waist-length hair. YOU CAN DO IT!

    Corrina: You’re gonna have a blast! I want to see your best drag queen look!

  33. 33 Alvin

    Oh I so love Japanese horror flicks especially Takashi Miike’s blockbuster ‘Audition’ where this Asian cat played by Eddie Albert takes an offer to screen girls at a special audition, arranged for him by a friend to find him a new wife. The one he fancies is not who she appears to be. But he marries her anyway and they leave the city to live on a farm. Once there they meet an orphaned neighbor named Eb. Eb soon decides this Asian cat is his father and all hell breaks loose. And right when things really get wonky this handy man – Mr Haney played by Pat Buttram – seems to show up just at the right time and over-charges them for everything that they may need to fix the wonkiness at hand.

    Of course when things seem bleakest Hank Kimble always shows up and confuses everyone right out of their sad quandary. And that adorable little pig, Arnold, oh we was a riot.

    The film was so successful that the actors moved to Los Angeles and pitched the show as an American sitcom in late 1965.

    Gotta run… need to check out that drag queen setting.

    Let us know how the drag queen picture turns out!

    Bob: Thanks!

    Jean: It’s a fun site. I actually get to see what I look like with makeup!
