Locks of Love

So, I did it. I have been thinking about it since last fall. The last time I was in to see my stylist she suggested we wait until after Christmas... then the next time I came in we would talk about it. She said "by then you will have more length, so it wouldn't be so short."
Locks of Love requires a minimum of 10 inches.

Here it is... Looks like a dead animal. But it still brought some tears to my eyes.

I haven't had my hair this short since I was probably five or six years old. I honestly can't remember having my hair above the middle of my back. All through highschool it brushed my waistband, much like it has for the past month or so.

I have had my short hair for about two days now... and honestly I love it. I darkened it up a bit and added some fun reddish highlights. I knew that I would have to love the color if I was going to get over the loss of the length... I have gotten a ton of compliments and it feels good to have done something to "give back."

I LOVE my hair... I can only hope some darling little girl can enjoy it as much as I do. Err... did. :)
