Hair Decisions and Hair Songs

scissorsBack in January, I got a haircut. I got it cut pretty short. Then, I had an epiphany. I decided to grow my hair for one full year.

I've got pretty thick hair, so it didn't take long for me to alter this experiment. I decided I could get my hair cut, but I'd grow the top for a year. Now I'm wearing it short on the back and sides while growing it out on top. Sort of the anti-mullet.

But you're not here to hear about my hair, are you? This is about the music. Below are all the songs in my MP3 collection that have "hair" in the title. If you have a "hair" song that I don't have, drop the title and artist in the comments.

I challenge myself with that idea everytime I shave my head: I'll grow it out for an entire year and see what happens.

I fail miserably every single time.

Any before and after pictures?

I did the "let it grow out for a year" challenge as well, as I had went all through high school (and more) with a shaved head. I ended up growing it out for just over 3 years before deciding to shave it all off again. Did that, regretted it after a month and I've been growing it out again ever since. That was December '07.. so i'm a little over the 1.5 year mark again. I don't plan on letting it get as long this time though, I'm looking at keeping it this length or maybe a little shorter, as soon as I can figure out what I want to do with it.

I don't really have a before and after pic, but I do have a pic of what it will look like when I'm done.
