i love fall – we begin to get a break from the hot temps, football is in full swing, my wardrobe is transitioning, and the leaves are thinking about changing. i have always felt that it can be a time for reinvention, and this year i went kinda big. see that pony tail below? a few short hours ago, it was attached to my head. it actually looks kind of creepy, right? well, i didn’t request to keep it just because. i’m donating it to beautiful lengths. i’ve wanted to do it for a long time, but never had hair long enough to where it wouldn’t be a pixie if i cut this much. so, i’m happy it worked out this time.
i’ve done a drastic cut like this several times, but i was extra anxious today. i guess because it’s been quite a while since my hair has been short. i sat in my hairdresser’s seat, and i got her endorsement to make the big chop. back it went into a ponytail, and then the unmistakable sound of it being cut. i looked up, and she said ‘don’t give me that look. there’s no going back now.’ the moment my hair fell, i already loved it. she cleaned it up, gave me a few curls, and here’s the new look.
it’ll never look this good again – because i am not good with hair – but at least i feel good tonight.
