A new person...

So I had decided to try (note the operative word) and let my hair grow out. Several years back my hair was down to the middle of my back, and before that it was to my behind! A few years ago I decided I needed a change and basically chopped it all off. I really liked it. I tend to get bored easily so I wanted a change. I thought I would try for an all one length bob. I soon realized I must have been NUTS. I mean what was I thinking I always have some sort of "fullness" in my hair and we all know that with one length fullness is not going to happen! It was nice for awhile, a different look, I could pull the sides up, put it all in a ponytail, and you get the idea. Well before you know it, I was ALWAYS putting it in a pony tail. BORING!! Then I remembered one of the main reasons I cut my really long hair was because it was so heavy it caused me to have headaches, and here with the pony tails it was happening again, not to mention the fact that I was sweating even more!! YUCK !


Today was the day...I cut it all off. OMG!! It was awesome. It was liberating! I never would have thought a haircut could do that. I felt transformed - like a new person!!


It must show all over- because in the short time that I was out after my haircut, I was complimented on my smile (I didn't think that had changed!) And on my top (which is really nothing special). Although he said the color was a good choice for me he was looking more at the girls now that I think about it. Ok so that one doesn’t count.


So here are some before and after shots….


What do you think?


Which one do you like better?

Here I am with longer hair.  This is not the longest I have had it but it is to the middle of my back in this picture.



 Here my hair is almost all one length bob.  It still has layers but at this point I was pretty much pulling it back because it was easier and I was so darn hot all the time.


 Here I am with my short hair.  Granted this is not a recent photo, but this is how I just had it cut again.

  1. I remember when your hair was really long in elementary school. The short cut is super cute!
