I might be a little bit dramatic, but I have been in a period of mourning lately. The last time I had hair this long was probably four years ago. I love short hair because it's so fast, easy and kind of edgy (depending on the style - RIP mohawk days), but long gone are the days of the single solitary braid to near elbows. A beautiful delicacy those are to me. I've been aching every time I see one lately.
