Drastic Haircut, Part 2

A few weeks ago, I asked for advice about short hair, since I was planning to get mine cut, and the change would be drastic. See, this is my hair last week:

My hair, when loose and dry
My ponytail, when wet
Although it rarely looked like that, since I only had it in a ponytail when it was dry, for running, and the rest of the time I put it up. So I pretty much always looked like this:

Hair in a bun/looped ponytail thing
Which is nice, but the hair you can't see is still there and a pain.

On Tuesday, I went to the hairdresser's. Debbie's cut my hair since I was tiny, and unlike my mom, has never cut it lopsided so my head looked permanently tilted. So I trust her.

I told her I wanted it short and easy to deal with, and let her go from there. After all, who am I to go in with some grand vision - I know NOTHING about hair, and she's the expert.

So now I look like this:

And I love it.

(oh it was weird at first, and I still ocasionally forget I don't have a bunch more hair, but it feels a lot the same, and it's a million times easier)

Moral: try new fun things with your hair. maybe they will be amazing.

  1. Nice! I'm about to get a shag haircut to cover a scar on my forehead, which I hope will fade!, after years of being adamant about long hair and no bangs. Eeeek! your post helps me feel like it won't be that bad. Your haircut looks good.
