Kavita finished college 1st year few days back. In her home, they had to daily braid Kavita in college days as she had long hair. So they planned within all members that Kavita should be given short haircut.
Some suggested she can be given shoulder length haircut. But her aunt suggested she can be given be boy cut hairstyle so that we need not comb her long hair. They hinted at this idea to Kavita who like her long hair very much. Kavita argued she won’t cut her hair. They scolded her for not agreeing for haircut. After a lot of arguments, her mother threatened her to shave her head if she doesn’t agree to have a haircut so Kavita gave up. Her aunt told morrow morning 10 am, we will be heading to parlour for short haircut of yours. Kavita saw herself over mirror and combed her long hair for the last time before going to sleep.
Kavita went with her aunt to a ladies beauty parlour around 11 o’ clock. She didn’t speak to her dear aunt on that day as she was fed up of losing her long hair. When they went in, Kavita’s hands were shivering thinking about haircut and how she will look after. Two seats were there. One girl was being given eyebrow threading. Another girl was trimming her hair. Kavita asked she too would trim and leave the parlor. By that time, threaded girl left the parlour and beautician asked what needs to be done for this girl. Her aunt said, cut it short like boy cut. Kavita started to cry as she had no choice. Beautician asked very short boy cut or medium boy cut. Her aunt said medium boy cut.
Kavita was wearing red churidar and inverted dupatta had tied her hair in a ponytail. She went on and sat in the chair. Beautician drape around a white cloth and tied it at her neck. Kavita had tears running down. She sprayed water on her thick and long hair. Her aunt said she should look like a boy when she gets down. Beautician said don’t worry she will be shortened as much as possible. Beautician grabbed Kavita’s neck to bend her down.
Kavita was crying down with tears. Then she took scissors. chhick..chhick..chhick.. The sound of scissors heard by Kavita was making her shivering. Beautician made her ponytail half the length. Within 2 minutes, She gave two ponytails cut from her long hair to aunt. Her aunt smiled and took it in her bag. Kavita had her hair upto shoulder where she had her ponytail tied previously. She had her bob cut hairstyle now. Kavita said to beautician please leave like this, I am okay with bob cut, don’t cut it too short.
Her aunt and beautician bended her head down and her loose bob hair was cut. As she had a deep neck cut in her chudi previously, now it became visible and neck is being shown now. Then beautician came front and started to cut her front loose hair. Then Kavita was made to turn left side and beautician clipped her side burns and her ears became visible. She was turned to right side and her hair was shortened around ears. Her aunt came near the chair and said it keep this thickness and trim it at ends.
Kavita did not get to see her face in the mirror till then. Now when she saw, she started touching her nape and checked her length and shocked to see no hair on her neck. Meanwhile beautician trimmed her hairs on backside and made it straight like boys back hair. Then she came front and started combing her hair front and cut the length and made some hair to be shown in the front. Then she was shortened at her ears both left and right. Her aunt came near the chair and asked could you remove the hair on her face? Beautician said, shall I do threading? No, can you shave her sideburns and face. Kavita said please leave me, I don’t like shaving my face. Her aunt said, if you don’t like shaving your face, she will shave your head. Kavita said “No, please shave my face; I am okay with it.” Then beautician took a razor and started shaving her sideburns around her ears. She made Kavita’s head to lie on the chair head and started shaving her face. Kavita felt the pain of razor on her dry skin. She was totally humiliated in the process. Then beautician applied powder on her visible neck and shaved face. Kavita finally got down and felt her short hair with her hands. Her aunt paid ₹200 to beautician and Kavita’s visible neck with boy cut was watched by everyone on the way to home. She started to enjoy her short haircut finally after few days.
