Some time in the past decade or so, it became compulsory for young women to have long hair. It's not that I don't like long hair. I do. It looks awesome. But short hair suits some people better and it seems to have been taken off the table as an option - but as a short haired person I would say that wouldn't I? To be clear, I absolutely think my sister-in-law Karin and niece Jess totally rock long hair and secretly I'm very jealous because even when I decide to let my hair down, I'm completely incapable of doing so with the same style and flourish as they do. They make quite a splash. And also rocking is my new underwater camera which took the big close up of Jess's grin.
