Dear Hair,

I think it's time for a change, but I'm kinda scared. Remember last year, when I had the mullet?* The salon owner who fixed you was great, especially when she said "Oh my God! Who did this to you and how did it happen in my salon?!" and gave me a cute new haircut.

Should we do a big change, chop off all the chlorine damage, and start over? Or should we go the safe route, and just get a trim? Could there be a worse haircut result than a reverse mullet (the one I was given last year was party in the front, business in the back), or can I assume that I've already been given the worst haircut I'll ever get**?


*Being able to start stories with, "Remember that one time? Back when I had the mullet?" is really the only good part about getting mulletted by an inexperienced hair stylist.

**This was the mistake that led to getting the mullet in the first place, really. I assumed I had already been given the worst haircut of my life back in sixth grade, when my mom took me to JC Penny so a "professional" (bless my mom's heart…) could fix my suddenly frizzy hair. I ended up spending most of junior high with poodle hair, which was set off nicely by my giant glasses. I don't even think my grandma thought I was cute.

I had a mullet as a child (thanks mom), so I feel your pain. Luckily, yours was fixed after a few days. Mine lasted for about 3 years.
