Ever since I ended my first Epic Experiment in Cross-dressing, I have not embarked on another similar journey. Or, have I? This experiment in cross-dressing is one that has been going on without me ever intending to do so!
What do I mean by this? Well, this one has to do with the hair on my head, and as you read on I will explain.
The Accidental Experiment
Here’s how it happened — for most of my life I have preferred to wear a very short hairstyle, though I am very particular about my haircuts. Just before my wedding last year, I went to a trusted barber and got my favorite haircut, a “blowout” with just a little bit of length on the top.
A number of things happened after that day to cause my current situation. We weren’t living where our wedding took place, so the barbershop I went to was not one I could frequent regularly. In addition, financial circumstances caused me to cut a few things from my to do list, including my biweekly haircuts. Lastly, I began to take an extremely casual view of my hair.
As the months passed, my hair began to take on a life of its own and I didn’t seem to mind it. At each juncture I styled it slightly differently and so I never felt uncomfortable about my appearance.
I have very thick hair that is straight when short but as it grows it becomes curly and I really started to like this.
The First Trial Run
You may have noticed that in my latest four YouTube videos I am not wearing a wig. Indeed, this is true, what you see is my own natural hair, styled by my wife. She thought up the idea one day and I figured it would be a fun new thing to try.
There was only one other time when we tried this, it was about five years ago, the only other time that I kept my hair long. As with this time, my wife styled it, but we went a step further and put extensions in it. I had some nice pictures but due to the fact that I was still in my purging stages, they are now relegated to digital dust.
Well, in the next couple of months I hope to try some other neat things with my hair. Though I will still be using my trusty wigs, I plan on taking advantage of having my hair at its current length because I’m sure that I will cut it short again sometime in the future.
As you can probably tell, this experiment will not be as strictly rigid as my last one, though I do plan on documenting each new thing I try with my hair.
Your Experiments in Hair?
I’m sure many of you have either worn your hair long at one point or currently do so. Those who are full-time are more likely to have a long hair. How did it make you feel? What’s the wackiest thing you’ve tried with your hair?
I will be updating this experiment very soon and will continue to do so, as there is much to be explored in the topic of hair.
