Diary entry #39 – Getting my hair done

hairdresserSo i finally caved in and went to the hairdresser to get another hairstyle. So i let her cut it all off until none was left, so i am bald now. Just kidding, i’m just messing with you guys ;).

So this morning i went to the hairdresser. It was about 10.15 am when i walked in. I had previously made an appointment, so atleast i didn’t have to wait too long. I sat there anxiously waiting, because umm for some reason i decided going in boymode was somehow the best idea in this situation (it wasn’t in hindsight). Once it was my turn the hairdresser asked me what i wanted. I kind of muttered “I want a womanly hairstyle” which she didn’t hear so i had to repeat myself. After she understood what i said  she asked me what kind of hairstyle i was thinking of. I told her i wanted some layers in my hair and she thought that was a good idea too.

After like 5 minutes while she was busy with my hair, i told her i was going to live as a woman for the rest of my life. While waiting for her reaction i showed her my ID-card which of course shows that i am female. After seeing that she was like “Omg that is so cool!”. Out of all the reactions i could’ve gotten, that was not one i expected. So during the rest of the time she kind of barraged me with questions about how things work when you are transgender. As i love educating people about it, i didn’t have a problem with that. Although i’m still not sure why people are obsessed with the question about having “The Surgery”. She also gave me some words of courage to hopefully help me with my life as a woman.

Next to that, she also gave me some tips about make-up and hair. It turned out that i did some things totally wrong with my hair. After she was done with my hair, i was quite surprised with the result. I knew i had kind of curly hair, but not that curly. I had a full head of curls it seemed. She told me to just stop brushing out my curls and just embrace it. A lot of girls would be jealous of having natural curls like me according to her. I wasn’t sure what to think of my curls, but that’s something to get used to i guess. It does look a lot nicer than the “long guyish hair” i had going before. So i thanked her and i had to pay like 20 euro’s which to me was not a lot for what she did to my hair.

Once i got home i showed my new hairstyle to my family. Before seeing it my mother was afraid that the hairdresser would fuck it up, because last time they cut off way too much with me and my mom. Of course that wasn’t the case so my mom liked it. My two brothers were kind of indifferent towards it but could agree that it looked more womanly. My dad also liked it.

It’s kind of weird that a different hairstyle can change a lot about one person’s appearance, at least that is a feeling i had. I look much more like a girl with this hairstyle and in some kind of way it “softens” the look of my face. Safe to say, i’m very pleased with it.

I would post a photo about it here, but my hair kind of got weird during the day because of the wind so it doesn’t look that good right now. I’ll have a look if i can take one in the morning.
