I have been growing my hair out since Joe and I got engaged....June of 2009.
I have had a few professional hair cuts. One before our wedding and one thanks to Joe's sister Sara, who spoiled me with a cut from a salon she used to work at. But to be honest with long hair I found it really easy to just cut my own hair every once in a while.
Well with winter fast approaching I decided to cut my hair. The air is very dry during the winter and I wanted to try to avoid long showers or having to blow dry my hair.... with that being said having really long hair was cramping my style.
Our co-worker, Krystal, had made plans to get her hair cut and I asked if I could tag along. So a few Saturdays ago I cut about 14 inches off.
Here is a before and after...
The second picture isn't the best, but you get the idea.
So far I have enjoyed my shorter hair. It only takes 5 minutes to dry!!!!! I used to spend 20-30 minutes blow drying my hair. I went to a place called Juno Hair. It is a pretty well known chain hair salon. When we walked in they took our coats and gave us each a magazine to look at. They even made us toast and jam because Krystal mentioned she hadn't had breakfast. I got my hair shampooed and conditioned. The man who washed my hair gave me THE BEST head rub! I would go back just for him to wash my hair. Seriously, it was THAT good! The woman who cut my hair didn't speak English, but I cane armed with a few pictures. Overall it was a great experience. The salon workers were all really nice and I like my hair cut!
The kids at school haven't taken so kindly to my change in hair style. In true outspoken kid fashion I have been told more than once that I have "turned ugly" or look like an "old woman". Oh well..
