And it's gone

My hair has been giving me a headache for a while now. It was so long, beautifully long, but at the same time, it was too long. I don't have time to do my hair anymore. It's not like when I was young and I could spend an hour fucking with it, no, now I spend 43 seconds brushing it and I'm out. My solution lately has been to pull my hair up. This has been causing massive headaches and, honestly it just looked like shit that way and sloppy. Finally, I decided it was time to cut the shit off.

I thought about doing a poll on here but I knew if you guys said don't cut it, I wouldn't because I was always looking for a reason not to. So, I very quietly made an appointment and just did it. I have two ponytail holders full of hair that I will be mailing off to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program. My hair was long enough, thick enough and it hadn't been died so we made sure to cut off enough to send. I haven't styled it yet, I told her I was going home to shower so not to bother with styling. This is how it looked after simply drying on its own. I go back in five weeks after fucking with it some to get some layers and what not. She wanted to wait to do layers until I had played with it enough to know what I wanted, how I liked parting it and so on.

With out further ado, my new hair.







How it looks after a shower (it flips out or in, this is out)


Also, I'm very tired, and pale and I kinda look like crap today, so you know, try not to comment on the whole you look like a worn out mom thing KTHX!

Jiff said...

Wow. I need to do that to mine. It's long and I could send it off too. I just wash, let dry, then pull back in either a ponytail or up in a large bun. :(

Go you for doing it!!!
