In lieu of a heart-wrenching personal essay, I bring you Snippets: Scenes from a Life. In other words, random photos from the past eight months or so.
(Immediately after the piercing) Back in September of 2012, I paid perfectly good money to have some stranger stab a needle through the thickest part of my ear. A charming Canadian reader named Megan is considering a conch piercing of her own, so I promised her some details… … a month or three ago. *coughs […]
Look, a question from a reader! AJ asks: Just curious, did you go back for another Deva cut? Did the cut “wear” well after a few weeks? My hair is similar to yours and I’m on the fence about going to a Deva stylist. AJ, I did go back once, and walked out […]
