I have had long hair a LONG time. I can’t even remember the last time I had short hair….according my webcam photos, I started growing it out somewhere around 2008 and it was relatively long already in 2009 when Micheal Jackson died.
So…atleast 3 years of “down your back, long, (and slightly annoying, but still pretty)” hair.
About 2 days ago I woke up and just knew it was time to cut all of this off:
I was finding that I quit fixing it unless I had to.
It was wet pony tail hair.
My hair took 40 minutes to dry (and honestly I never really got it completely dry) and then another 20 to fix it. With a 9 month old and a 7 year old, the priority of it just went out the window.
Off to the salon I went, where they assured me I would look competly normal and I wouldn’t lose my identity or anything. The entire time I had Lynsey texting me and trying to talk me out of it and Kim saying “hmmm”.
My spouse and Cat were trying to get me to cut it to my chin.
No thanks. No need to make my face look rounder.
But I did cut 7 inches at its longest point:
(ignore the pedicure my daughter gave me recently)
And….now this is me:
Of course after I cut mine, my daughter wanted to cut hers and since I had no excuse to make her keep her mega long hair…we went back to the salon for another snip snip.
I am not going to lie….it was hard to do. Doing mine and watching her cut hers….but it feels so much cooler for the summer months, it’s so far been easier to fix, less shampoo, and I can always grow it back.
What do you think…us with long hair or short hair?
