When I was 15, and trying to reinvent myself, I decided to get a pixie cut--which basically meant saying goodbye to most of my hair, which had never been shorter than chin-length. The stylist I went to put a whole lot of gel in it, and when I tried to replicate that effect the first day I came to school with my new hair, it was so stiff a girl in one of my classes joked that she could bounce a quarter off it. I also got a lot of double-takes, and more than one person asked why I'd done it or when I was going to grow it back.
It was a little embarrassing, but after I figured out how to style it in a way that fit me more (i.e., much less gel), I found I liked the way I looked and how freeing it was not to have hair constantly blowing in my face or getting tangled. People still asked me when I was going to grow it out again, but I just shrugged it off and smiled.
