haircut


this is what my hair looked like when we moved in April

a week later I got highlights and had several inches cut off

I embraced the curls/waves all summer long

Around late July I started seriously considering a pixie cut.
!!!!!!!!
Crazy, I know. Crazy cute and exciting.
Also crazy scary and potentially awful.
I would make hair appointments and cancel them an hour later.
I printed out pictures of pixies I loved and pixies I hated.
I even had a dream that I had a pixie hairstyle!

I knew I wasn't ready to chop off all of my hair, though,
so in August I had my mom cut some layers around my face.

I also straightened my hair for the first time in months.

I didn't think I wanted anything in-between long and a pixie,
but I changed my mind.
Yesterday I went from this:

to this:


and today (unwashed):

I LOVE it! I adore long hair, but I realized that the main reason the pixie appealed to me is because it shows off the collarbone and neck. This length does just that without being quite as drastic of a change. It felt drastic during the cut - it's been years since I've had so many inches taken off! For once in my life I was smiling the entire time my stylist was snipping. Now I can't stop whipping my hair back and forth!

    1. thanks Amy! Andy would have preferred I kept it long, but he's given me several compliments on it (without me asking for them). Would you go back to short and curly, or do you have something new in mind? I've never seen you have a bad hair phase - lucky girl!
