It's been so hot and my hair's so thick that I shaved most of it off this evening.
A selfie where I try to show off that the sides of my head are shaved. My dark hair is longer on the top and combed off to one side.
Feels much better now. But no doubt this means the heatwave is over. You're welcome.

It's the longest day of the year in this hemisphere, a bittersweet occasion for me because I'm sad to think the days are getting shorter now already. It feels like I haven't had a chance to get used to or appreciate them yet. It's been a real catastrophe curve of a year, so time passes without me noticing it.

Fierce! It's weird to me that here in the Northwest we don't really get our summer weather until after the solstice. (It was in the fifties last night, windy and raining. Brrr!) So the entire time that it's actually warm or hot, the days are shortening again. Alpine season won't even start for another month. Climate is bizarre.

The days start to get shorter but It continues to get warmer after the solstice here because it takes a while for the air and water to warm up after winter and it stays warm til Autumn.

Wonderful. It looks great. I had a number-2 cut years ago and it didn't really suit me at all (glad I tried it though).

I'm glad I got mine done a couple of weeks ago, it would have been unbearable in this weather. Of course I don't actually need them to shave the bit on top nowadays, sigh.

And while we may be past the solstice, dusk will keep getting later for a few days yet ('til the 27th).

OOH MUCH HAIR ENVY!

I was thinking last night at a gig, admiring many badass colours and cuts, that I for next's week's cut I might ask for a #1 instead of the usual #2 on one side for a bit of minor punkishness, yet not too rockin' to suit my corporate grownup stylee needs.

Love it! Looks very smart indeed: vagaries of weather be damned.
