Hairstyles for the modern novelist

I have been growing my hair a little over the last few month, only to find that I seriously dislike my very thick coarse hair when it is long and shaggy.  

With a mind of its own.

Helmet hair does not come close. If feels more like this –

I know I should not complain about having a full head of thick hair, but it needs taming.

So be warned. All or nothing. The whole lot is coming off.

I am going Judi Dench.

 Only good times ahead.
