Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
How about a fun update today? In June of 2005 we received a letter from "Hair Despair", a 15-year old teenager who was devastated by her new haircut. Every time she looked in the mirror, she told Bubby, she burst into tears at the sight of her new look. Was that because she got it cut in France, or was it just a case of over eager shears? Either way, she poetically exclaimed to Bubby, "I can't go on..."
Always eager to help, Bubby offered "Hair Despair" some high-tech, super scientific, mensa-level advice: HAIR GROWS BACK. In fact, Bubby noted, even while "HD" was writing this very letter, her hair was growing. Not only that, Bubby said, "you will have a long tale to report to friends about what happened to your hair in France."
Nearly a year later, we just have to know: Still Hair Despair? Or Quite Contraire?
When I wrote to you asking for help that was a year ago and I was quite upset about my awful haircut. But now a couple months later I am very HAPPPYYY :D
My hair is quite long now and I love it :)
I just had highlights put in my hair last week which I love and have gotten many compliments about :)
I realized I was being a bit stupid about my hair when it wasn't really even that bad. It was quite nice. I may get it cut again. So I am very happy now with my hair and I won't be sending any more letters of help to you :D
Thank you for getting back in touch.
Thanks for writing!

3 OPINIONS ADDED
I once got a bad haircut, during my winter break at college. It was so bad and short. When it was time to go back to school I cried and cried, for like a day straight. My mom felt so bad for me that she bought me all these barrettes and I used them to keep my hair pulled back and pinned down till it started to grow back. And I was 19! So, some things never change...
you cried because of your hair and you were 19???? you were going to college, learning about the world, and what goes on it, and you cried because your hair was too short? do you realize what goes on in the world today?
