Thursday night I decided I wanted to cut my hair. Naturally I had some anxiety over it. I love my long hair. I've only had short hair once.
After discussing the matter with my sister, mom and best friends I decided it was happening. Very soon, or I might back out.
Basically my reasoning is that (1) I am tired of having layers and (2) I'm graduating, so why not change it up a bit.
So after getting some advice from my friends I decided to go to The Cut Above on recommendation from my dear friend Emily. I went over straight after leaving my internship. I was going to have them cut it right then and there, but they didn't have time for me until 2:30pm. I made the appointment and went home to eat.
As I walked there I kept getting more and more nervous. Then I walked in. Brother Thornton from the library was there with his wife. That was nice, a familiar face. Then I started talking to Alicia, my stylist. She was wonderful! I felt very comfortable and she listened to everything I said. Before she did anything she was sure to ask me.
Well it's all over and I'm very happy with my new hair.
Here are the before and after pictures:
Sorry for the bad quality. They were taken on my phone. Also, sorry about the crazy face. My roommate said I didn't look happy.... so I tried. But I was nervous! Also my hair looks insane because I hadn't washed it for 3 days and it was just in a french braid.
My hair feels so much healthier (and looks it). I really love it. I'm excited to try out all the 1960s hairstyles Melissa and I found.
Happy Saturday everyone!
