Every few years I get bored and crave a change... with my hair... In general I always grow it out and have long long hair. But when I was 17 I cut the whole lot off into a very short hairstyle that was quite fun... then grew it out and again about 6 years ago I got the urge and chopped the lot off to just over 1" all round... Soooo not surprisingly the last few months I have been contemplating a change again... and then on Wednesday I saw this. You can imagine what happened next...
I got on the phone, made an appointment with Emma at the hairdressers, spoke to a friend about babysitting my girls for a couple of hours, and 24 hours later...
Gone - the lot of it. Not quite to an inch - I still wanted my children to have a shot at recognising me : ) But 12 inches gone and tomorrow winging it's way to the Pantene Beautiful Lenghts Donation Programme to be turned into a wig for cancer patients. It feels great that what I no longer want or need is hopefully going to be used to make someone who is suffering feel a little bit brighter : )
I don't really do photo's of myself in general so finding a before was a bit tricky... Cat was a little surprised as she suspected somehow, and my husband was too upon arriving home the next day after 3 weeks overseas!
I am enjoying the new "do" for now, and am really hopeful my 12 inches will make someone else feel gorgeous :)
Happy Tuesday Everyone!
