Once upon a time there was a lady named Samantha who spent lots of time on her super curly hair. She would straighten it, then curl it. She wears pony tails and messy buns and braids, all in an effort to tame her locks.
One day, Samantha decides she wants a hair cut, but, living in a rural town, there is no where to get a hair cut, short of driving "to town". So, as she is not a child known for her patience, she cuts it herself.
It looks great. Brave girl.
