New Do

I got my hair cut on Wednesday. It was long over due. I hadn't had it cut since November and it was dead and dry at the ends. My husband only wanted me to "get a trim" and take off only about an inch. What is it with guys and long hair anyway? I knew that I had waited far too long for "just a trim", but I decided to keep it longish by having maybe two inches cut off and buy a really good conditioner to see if it would help with the dryness. So off I went on Wednesday to have it cut.

I told the stylist I wanted to take a couple inches off, but would still like it to be shoulder length.

Here it was before I got it cut:
It is so dead and dry on the ends. Yuck. And Dude. I need a tan.

Here is what I was thinking I wanted the length to be:
Although now I see that the length here is actually slightly longer than shoulder length. I am loving the color of my hair in that picture. I wish I could afford to have it professionally colored on a regular basis.

Here it is now:

The jury is still out on it for me. It is much shorter than I imagined it would be. But I do admit that when I sit up straight, it does touch my shoulders. Barely. So I can't fault the stylist for it being shorter than I anticipated. I did say "shoulder length". I was sure Joe would hate it. He says he likes it. I'm not sure if he's saying that just to be nice or not, which is totally something he would do. He typically is not a fan of short hair. I guess there's nothing to be done about it now. It's just hair. It'll grow back. Right?

I usually let my hair grow for a while then I chop off about 4 inches. It's so much fun doing that. I really like the new cut. And you're right, it will grow back.

Michelle, I think the new "do" looks great! I know it seems short compared to how you had it before, but it's not really a short hair cut. I think it's very flattering for your face and you look great!
