hair set point


i recently read that, as with our weight, we possess "hair set points." that is, we routinely return to the same "do" that keeps us comfortable and associating with particular versions of ourselves (any sense of self is better than none; this might explain Billy Ray Cyrus).

i have an appointment for a haircut tomorrow. will i keep hanging w/ my set point? i'm thinking that a side part might shake things up, but is that too tame to enable me to claim that i've broken free? i mean, i'd basically switch from the sensible age-resistant middle part to a marilynesque bob for the wanabe. and is that so bad?
