Summer Haircut

I finally took the plunge today–I cut off a lot of hair. I’ve gone through several cycles of growing my hair really long and then donating it to Lock of Love, and this most recent one was brought on by my wedding. I wanted to have plenty of length to put my hair in an up-do on my wedding day…and now here we are *cough* eight months later, and I’m just now chopping it all off.  Anyway, here’s the before:


As you can see, my hair was half-way down my back. It was such a pain to care for, and it’s not exactly comfortable in this extreme heat we have in Alabama.

As for the after…


Ta da! I think I lost at least five pounds of hair. My head feels so much lighter! I’m looking forward to playing with it a bit and styling it myself.

How do you wear your hair? Do you prefer long hair or short hair?

  1. you look great! mine is getting to the length now that i am thinking about seeing how long i can go before i could donate it! it has to be an amazing feeling to be able to do so!


  2. I have short hair and I love it! My hair was down to the middle of my back in college, and while it was fun for a while, it was so annoying most of the time. My current hairstyle makes me look older (in a good way), is so fun and spunky, and honestly takes WAY less time to do than my longer hair…and it looks 100x better! 🙂 Good for you for donating! That’s such a great thing to do 🙂
