because i know you care

On New Years Eve I realized that my hair looked more like an unruly mop than anything else and that I hated it. I've been a little uneasy about big haircuts since hairgate oh-nine but it was definitely time for a change. I've only cut it four times since that traumatic experience, which has left me, at times, with some seriously crazy hair.

A few weeks ago I made an appointment expecting to get a few inches trimmed, but when I sat down in the chair I found myself saying "eh, let's go to just above the shoulders". Melinda (stylist) was like "uhhh are you sure? You've TOLD me that awful haircut story and I can't deal with you sobbing in my chair." Once I assured her that I wasn't going to have a breakdown she went to work. When she revealed the final product, I gasped! With excitement, of course, because I loved it. Ta-da!

When all was said and done, Melinda cut off just about six inches of hair. There was pretty much a full head of hair on the floor when she was done. It was hilarious, and a little bit gross.

In hindsight, it probably would have been better to wait until after Emma's wedding (in which I am a bridesmaid) since there are better formal styles for longer hair. But once I make up my mind to do something I'm all I WANT A GOLDEN GOOSE NOW! I did shoot Emma a text to see if she would care and of course, she didn't. Later she explained that she loved my luscious locks, but that in terms of her wedding, it didn't make a difference to her. What a bridezilla, amirite?

Just to give you an idea of the before and after:

Have you made any big changes lately? Tell me about it!
