Kellie and I talked about tattoos, hair-cuts and how the image we project may or may not reflect who we are and where we’re at.  I commented to her that her hair cut gave her a hard, tough edge that didn’t seem completely in keeping with the Kellie I know.  This is how Kellie responded…

“I have always had this undercut, but I tend to wear it covered.  It’s funny that you should notice it now!  I did decide to wear my hair in a way that showed it off today.  Yes, I suppose it does make me look tougher and harder.  And I do feel a little bit harder and tougher these days, but I don’t think I am ‘hard’ or ‘tough’!  But then I am wearing a very girly dress and shoes.  What does that say about me?  I don’t know.  I dress and express myself in a way that makes sense to me.  I don’t consciously choose to dress in a way that says anything to anyone else”.
