We've seem to come at a cross roads of sorts on this blog.
While I am continuing to find a plethora of short hair beauties to share with you all,
and there doesnt seem to be any waning popularity in the current surge of sidecuts, sidebuzzed pixies
out there, this blog has become a love hate thing for me.
It's a labor of love for me.
There's days I really dont feel like updating the blog.
There's other days I feel like I could post five new topics.
Being a short haired enthusiast is exhausting at times.
It's something you cant control.
By the time I post something on this blog, I have probably thought about and or fantasized about
short hair on women countless times in one day.
Most of all having a wife who has short hair to get to come home to and look at certainly is a constant
So at times when I am perusing the net trying to find pictures for you all or an interesting topic, I am at times on sensory overload.
Not that that is a bad thing.
The biggest issue I find is the time and effort that I put into this blog, and while the numbers show we are getting over a thousand views a day on the blog as a whole, the feedback and comments we recieve are few and far inbetween.
Without the faithful few commenters like Enzo and Wayner and Perfect Cut, this blog would become almost like a personal journal for me.
What motivates me is sharing my likes and stories with others.
Without that interaction I might as be writing a journal about Mrs Mac's hair for myself.
The problem is I have never kept a journal because i dont find sharing my thoughts and likes with my self as productive.
There's alot of speculation on my part why this blog doesnt get more comments.
I dont have ads up on here. I'm not making money on this blog.
Im not making video's of Mrs Mac's hair ( which i have thought of doing at times)
Maybe I am just ignorant and dont understand the concept of hair enthusiast. Perhaps there is more lurking and admiring from afar then interaction.
I know I am that way in public when I see an attractive woman with a short hair style to my liking.
But this is the internet and you can hide in anonimity all you want and admire away and no one is going to think any less of you.
You can get your freak on and no one is going to judge you, because no one knows who you really are.
When you make a blog however about your hair enthusiam and a blog about your wife's short hair, as some of you know you are putting yourself out there for potential judgement.
Everyone who has commented has been really kind. Mrs Mac gets compliments out and about for her hair.
With the exception of several friends and a few coworkers who negatively commented on Mrs Mac's Pink inspired bleach blonde updo, it's really been all positive.
That being said however, Mrs Mac will not style her hair up again like the photoshoot we did when she got the P!nk beach blonde updo, all because of the several negative comments she got.
And there's nothing I can do to convince her otherwise.
Then there's the thought that perhaps we dont get alot of comments because we come off like some freaks or something. Perhaps people see this as a freak show where they like to look from afar but not actually get up close and interact.
I see Mrs Mac's style all the time on the internet. There is countless tumblr pages with dozens upon dozens even hundreds of haircuts on women like what Mrs Mac has.
I dont think it's unusal looking and is actually very common in alot of circles, but maybe it's too progressive for some.
My wife is business woman and works in an office and has never gotten complaints in work, other then the snide comments the one time on how bright her hair was back in november. No one has ever said anything negative about the style and cut ever in any of the incarnations and variations of styles Mrs Mac has had.
Regardless of the social acceptance or not of a woman with a short sidebuzzed pixie,
I have come to the conclusion that I can no longer continue to post new pictures of Mrs Mac's hair.
I am sitting on two never before seen sets of pics. Both from Mid to late December after a retrim.
Nothing new with the style. Color wise because of the negative comments Mrs Mac got lowlights added to her bleach blonde hair which has settled down in it's color as well and her hair currently looks like it did last summer when we started this blog.
I've approached Mrs Mac in asking her to perhaps continue this blog.
I have even asked her to at least comment and add her view points and thoughts to this blog in hopes
it would create more interaction and feedback from the silent viewers.
Mrs Mac is open to the idea, but at best if she did do this her contribution would be limited at best seeing how busy she is with being a mother and having and working with full time job as well.
I'm sure we'll be back at some point posting pictures of Mrs Mac. God only knows the sets are building as there's two sets you havent seen yet. Mrs Mac is due for another trim Jan 24th and her last cut/retrim was mid December. The length wasnt really touched so her bangs are getting pretty long. All that was done really was the rebuzzing with a #2 again.
In the meantime I figured I owed it to all of you to share with you the Definitve Collection of Mrs Mac's hair over the years. If this is the parting shot, I would at least like to leave you all with every picture you've never seen before in this blog.
All Never Before Seen Pictures!
I havent shared a Mrs Mac Hair Flashback post in a while. and Believe me as you will see I have a huge collection that would take months If I did a weekly installment.
So here it is. Enjoy and hopefully we'll be back soon with another Mrs Mac Hair Update
