Although I haven't lived at home for many years now, I plan to see my family over the holidays. Nailing down final details on the phone with my mom today, she casually asked how I'd be wearing my hair when I got there, reminding me of a hairstyle that my father dislikes. It's not one I choose often, and I'm sure it wouldn't be that big of a deal if I arrived home like that. But, since it's Christmas and all, I saw nothing wrong with agreeing to this little thing.
On the one hand, I understand standing firm in a personal style choice but, on the other, I can see how old-fashioned relatives wouldn't want to see particular hair and makeup choices. It's just a couple days, and I wasn't planning it anyway, but would you change up a beauty routine to please family members you seldom see?
