maaru: (Thinking corner)
A long, long time ago, one of my grand-aunts kidnapped both me and my sister for a trip to the hair salon and curled the hair at the sides of our heads and made us look like a couple of POODLES. My mom thought it was funny. We were probably 5-6 years old, and later on we both swore not to get duped so easily, and always made sure to part our hair asymmetrically to avoid those dreadful memories.


Recently, however, my sister wants a perm - because our naturally straight hair now looks boring next to our mom who, after 40 years of keeping her hair VERY short, decided to grow it out only for us to discover that she has NATURALLY OCCURRING PRINCESS CURLS. You don't even need to style it - just twirl it a bit around your fingers, and it'll put classic shoujo heroines to shame. It made my sister weep with envy.


My own hair, however, has some more complicated issues. Dinner table convo a couple of weeks ago:

Me: I need a new haircut. Preferably another short barber's cut or something.
Mom: NO! I told you to stop cutting your hair like that!
Me: But why? You've always had short hair, but I'm not allowed to? Why do you get so angry?
Mom: That's different! You're... you... end up...
Me: What?
Mom: You look like the teenage version of your dad! *suddenly looks embarrassed*
Me: :|
Mom: :|
Me: u___u
