I Love New Hair Cuts!

Today was a big day for me; I got a new hair cut. I was nervous, the lady who cut my hair has only done it one other time and it was just a trim. I really liked her, but you can't really mess up a trim so it was hard to judge if she would do a good job. However, she did a wonderful job and I am very pleased with the results.

Reasons for hair cut:
1. It was time. I had been putting off the after-wedding hair cut for to long.
2. Jesse and I are taking a trip to the Virgin Islands and I wanted something cool (as in temperature and style) and something that would not take long to fix.
3. My hair was just getting to long. I would get rats nest in my hair around my neck when I wore it down...gross.
4. We live in an apartment and our shower pressure is terrible. It would take forever to wash my hair, almost to the point to where I did not look forward to washing my hair at all.

I will miss my beautiful, long hair, but it can always grow back.

After Pictures

Total damage: 6 inches cut off!
The best part about it was I got to donate my hair to the non-profit organization Locks of Love (, which provides hair to children with long-term hair loss conditions. I have always wanted to donate, but my hair was never long enough. They changed their regulations from 10 inches to 6 inches. I just barely made to cut, no pun intended. I checked the website and it still says 10 inches but the hair stylist said it has changed, so if you are interested I would get all the facts straight. The stylist said even if my hair is not long enough then the organization can still sale my hair to wig companies for money. Either way, glad I could help.

I am in love with the new hairstyle! I am glad I got over my nervousness and finally cut my hair. I might even go shorter with it next time.
What do you all think? Like the look? Think I could go shorter?


  1. I love it! You can always go a little shorter if you decide you are ready - you look beautiful!

  2. Very cute! It is so neat that you got to donate. I had no idea they had changed the length.

  3. Cute!!! I love it, but more important - you do. I cried the first time I took the plunge, with the hairdresser muttering the whole time "Man, I hope you like this..." I most like the smile in the after picture :-)

  4. I love it!!!! You have inspired me, I have been very nervous about cutting my hair. Now that Cooper is here, I don't have much time to fix it or maintain it. You look wonderful!!! Hope to see you guys soon!
