So a few weeks I just randomly decided to chop off all my hair. Okay, that’s not entirely true. I mean, I thought about it for several days, but I pretty much decided I would do it when the thought popped into my
hair head. Sometimes I can be semi-impulsive.
In general I just tend to chop my hair off, grow is out for 2ish years, and then cut it again. I can tell you exactly when the last few majors haircuts in my life have been because of this trend. (Winter break of my freshman year of college and Thanksgiving break of my senior year of college, in case you were wondering.) So my layers and style had kind of grown out since my last big chop was 19 months ago. I mean, I’ve gotten trims since then, but it was time for a change.
I wouldn’t say I pulled a Felicity (don’t worry; my hair isn’t that short!), but it’s true that this past spring semester was a pretty rough time, and this summer has kind of marked the end of a difficult season in my life. So how better to commemorate it then with a big hair change?
I also decided to go out on a limb and get my hair cut here in Oregon rather than waiting to go back to Texas. I wanted to give someone other than the stylist who’s cut my hair for 20+ years (crazy right?!) a chance to look me over and give me a new look. I don’t think the stylist ended up doing anything revolutionary (she did what I asked: she took my Pinterest board of prospective cuts and made it work), but I like the end result. I wouldn’t say I’m in love with it or anything, but I’m happy to have some dead ends, length, and weight off my shoulders.
So without further ado…
