A Close Shave With Judgment

, , , , | Friendly | March 6, 2019

(I’m 21 years old and have been living on my own for just over two years. I am female, and I have one side of my head shaved to help keep my super thick hair manageable. I have had my hair this way for over a year. I got to my usual hair salon to get the shave touched up. As I am checking out, an older woman, waiting to be called up for her haircut, approaches me.)

Lady: “Does your mother know?” *referring to my haircut*

Me: “Uh, yes.”

Lady: “I can’t imagine what would happen if you came home and your mother didn’t know.”

Me: “Well, considering I live on my own, that isn’t a problem.”

Lady: “Oh! You look like a teenager. I just couldn’t imagine what your mother would say.”

(What I should have said is that I have two moms, and not only do both of them approve, one of them also has her head shaved.)
