I just realized, while absently running my hand through my hair while looking at a mirror I have next to my desk, that hair is an artistic medium. It’s used expressively. It has allows for alteration in shape and color. It has inherent limitations such as length and natural form (curly, straight, etc). There are common ways it is styled that represent accepted motifs/genres, but there is also much experimentation and variation within and outside these molds.
my artistic expression must be “i don’t know what the fuck im doing with my life cause my hair never looks the same way twice what the fuck”
