When I was in year 7, then my hair was right down to my waist in glorious chocolate princess curls.
Unfortunately back then, I didn't really care what I looked like, and all I knew was that my long hair got in the way.
So, I got this bright idea of cutting all my hair off to chin length.
Why did no one stop me!
Now, in year nine, after two years of tantrums everytime the hairdresser came round and ordering her to cut it all off again (Becasue I hated it) I am finally growing it again! After about three months, it is well on it's way, and is now at armpit length.
Stick at it, and if you get really fed up with your hair, you tie it in a tight bun. I found getting a fringe cut in very useful, as if I ever woke up and started nearly crying at the state of my hair, then I'd be able to tie my hair in a neat(ish) bun, and I could make myself look pretty still with my straightened frindge and headbands and stuff.
<- The reason for the REALLY big hair in my pic is, a really big curly hair day mixed with the sudden desire to backcomb it.
Not a good combination!
