So about a year ago I mentioned I wanted to cut my hair...and I finally did it. My long hair with the dead ends and flat roots needed a trim and a new perm. I've been procrastinating for so long because my hair hadn't been that long since EVER. I wanted to revel in it for as long as I could.
When I told the stylist I wanted a little trim, she ended up cutting off like 6". The length ended right at the top of my boobs. :(:(:( No more long hair for me. I thought, "Fine. Whatever. It's just hair." So I went home with my newly permed medium-length hair. But, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I was obsessed. I would cry every time I looked in the mirror!! Finally, I went back to her and asked for more layers. Went home a little happier but still not satisfied. It just wasn't what I expected. I wanted the same hair style just with a quick touch-up. I didn't plan on this drastic change and it just totally bummed me out the whole day.
So I did what any other girl would do... I asked my husband to cut my hair to my shoulders. By this time it was late into the night and I was crazy/desperate...more crazy. It took me a few days to get used to it, but I love it now! I forgot how light it was to have shorter hair again. My hair hasn't been this short since 2009!! It makes me a little sad it took me 4 years to grow my hair out.. Here's to another 4!
