Attack of the Crazies: Freeze Wax x Ombre

You know how it’s like when you realise that you need to do something to go against a thought or definition? There’s the theory; the signs; the reality. No matter what you do, you find yourself yielding to comforts and conventions. Stress. And then, there’s this curious bit wherein you’d like to push yourself and experiment. Test the theory; the signs; the reality.

Saying goodbye to my long, curly locks

Questioning my sanity, yea, but surely not my determination. “Leap!” I told myself. “Go, chop it off,” I told Shin of Beauty Brick Hair Art Studio. Rest went by in a blur.

The wax will be my bestfriend from now on, I reckon. Double takes still occur each time I look at the girl with short hair, Ombre — or what they also call the hair colour trend, dip-dye — and all.

Texture, edge, volume, or yea, control. Interesting days ahead. It might take a while to get used to. A change is needed, that is all.

Started it off with SonicBoom at Area05 and lost myself in Urbandub’s A New Tattoo. Cheers to OPM.

Seems like more days will be filled with idiosyncratic affairs, ordinary settings, and more attacks of the crazies. November, can’t wait for you to arrive but steady lang for now.
