I'm not sure if you can tell by the picture, but that's a lotta hair! I have very fine, very thick hair. It got so thick that I quit using a hair dryer on it. Air dry all the way baby!! Sometimes I even went to bed with a wet head to keep from fooling with it.
Last year my niece & sister donated their hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths and I considered doing the same. After all I've been blessed with good hair and it was already pretty freakin long. Plus I was sick of the long hair and ready for a new short 'do.
Unfortunately, when I got to the salon my stylist told me that they measure by your shortest layer and it would be several months until it was long enough to donate. I'm not the most patient person in the world, so waiting until Christmas really wasn't up for consideration.
I took in these pictures . When consulted a few weeks ago, Jay liked the blond better. Raise your hand if you're surprised? Okay those of you with your hand up obviously don't know my man!
I thought that was pretty funny since he claims to love Katie Holmes - he didn't even recognize her in the top picture! Any way both hair cuts were Jay approved (not that they needed to be - its my hair after all, and I'm the one fixing it.)
He called right as I was walking into the salon and when he found out where I was asked if I was chopping it all off. My answer of "maybe" was met with a "do it, do it, do it, do it" chant. Weird, I thought most men liked long hair. Maybe my pony tails were truly getting out of hand.
Or maybe he was hopeful that this would get me out of my rut without me dropping too much cash!
I decided to go ahead with the cut after a brief discussion with my stylist. She seemed to think the cut would work well for me, going so far as to tell me that I was too petite to have so much hair. Apparently she knows just what to say to encourage a woman to chop it all off!!
And chop we did. They didn't even think I was all that weird for wanting to take pictures of the hair in the floor. Yes, that was just my hair. After cutting several inches off, she also thinned out what was left. I have very fine hair, but I've got a lot of it!
I'm still not comfortable fixing it (it doesn't look any where near as cute today as it did yesterday) but over all I love it! Now to see how easy it is to fix after working out!
Here it is after she got done with me yesterday.
