for everyone who’s experienced a terrible haircut

“This is so stupid.”

Tiffany glanced up from her book. “Mhmm,” she said.

“I’m not even kidding. This is actually the worst hairstyle I have ever seen. I’m never cutting my hair again.”

She watched as Taeyeon ran her hand through her new bangs again and again, a frown crossing her face unconsciously. In the mirror, Taeyeon flipped her hair to one side and then to the other.

“Screw this.”

Tiffany put her book down quietly.

“I don’t care anymore.” Taeyeon dragged her hair down in front of her face. “I’ll just go out like a yeti from now on.”

“Sounds good.”

Taeyeon turned around, her eyes hidden under the brown wavy curtain, but Tiffany could see her pout. “You’re making fun of me now. Great.”

“I thought you said you don’t care?”

“I don’t, but—” Taeyeon sighed loudly. “I don’t know, Tiffany. What the hell do I do now? This is ridiculous.”

Tiffany stood up and walked over. “Hmm.” She picked up a piece of Taeyeon’s hair and moved it away from her face. “What’s ridiculous?”

“My hair! I look like a poodle!”

“Poodles are cute.”

“Stop petting my head! Poodles are not cute, not at all, and a poodle hairstyle is just — beyond horrific.”

Tiffany grinned. “Good puppy,” she said, wrapping her arms around Taeyeon’s head.

“Not. A. Puppy. Please stop petting me.”

“Mhmm.”

There was a stubborn pause, then Tiffany felt Taeyeon relent a bit, felt her melt into the hug. She heard Taeyeon sigh. “Is…is it really weird?”

“It’s maybe a little poofy,” said Tiffany, shrugging a little, “but it’s not that bad. It’ll grow out.”

“How long will that take, though?”

“I don’t know.”

“What do I do, then? I’ll look like a dog forever!”

“Cute puppy.”

“Fany—”

“Shh. Quiet, puppy.”

“I’m not—”

“Good puppy.”

A whimper, then a quiet sigh. If Taeyeon had a tail, Tiffany would’ve sworn she saw it wag, a tiny bit.
