    Well I have been under a lot of stress lately with work and other stuff and needed to do something for myself so I cut my hair. 15" came off initially, then she had to cut at least another 2-3 to even everything out and put in my new style. I donated it to Locks of Love, they make wigs from donated hair for little girls who have cancer. It is a great cause. I like my new haircut but it is a lot more work than when it was long. DH thinks I look even more like a little girl, like around 12, and says that we can't go in public together because he doesn't want to be accused of being my dad even more than he was before. He was mainly giving me a bad time, but claims he likes it.

    Here is my before (the only ones I had were from the wedding):

      That was so nice of you to donate your hair. I did that once... it makes you feel good. I love your hair. Have you washed it yet? You are going to use way too much shampoo and conditioner lol

        WOW! Your hair looks great! That's awesome you donated it to Locks of Love. I worked at a Salon for 4 years and we would always save up bags of long hair to donate! :) You look great!

          I really like the new do. Thats sweet of you to donate your hair.

          Have you brushed your back yet? I always do that when i cut my hair, when i go to brush my hair for the first time i continue to brush where the hair isn't anymore.

            LOL I did this for a few weeks- especially conditioner. I had to rinse about half of it off my hand before I put it on! I think I finally got it down now.


            Congrats on the change. Iknow I loved cutting mine off. I don't think it makes you look like you are 12! I like shorter hair cause you can vary the style up a lot. SOme days I flip mine out, other times I make it smooth bob, wear it curly, pin it back, etc. You will have fun!

            That's great you got to donate yours! I had dyed hair (bleached!) so I wasn't able to donate it. Apparently if you put hi-lights in, they won't take it. BOO- I was totally sad.

            Since I'm not really using blonde anymore, I hope I can donate next time!

              My FI said the same thing to me when I cut my bangs straight across my face last time! I laughed and told him to shut up, but then we went to the movies and I got carded. Then a salesman came to the door and when I answered, he asked if my parents were home. I kindly explained that I was the owner of this house, so no, my parents aren't home.....

              So don't worry, you aren't alone! Just make sure you bring ID if you go see a movie that's rated R!

                I have to consciously think to not put too much. DH laughed when I first washed it, he said I took longer than when I had long hair.

                Totally, same with running my hand through my hair. Very difficult to get used to it not going on and on.

                    I like it! And I don't think it makes you look younger (no offense! but that's probably good!), it's stylish and modern. Good job!
