If They Could See Me Now…

Okay, for all the people who have known me nearly as long as I have (known myself) then you know I have had long hair FOREVER!!!  Let’s just say I’m not very daring when it comes to changing my hair.  A few layers and highlights, but nothing drastic!

Well, I was in St. George and my favorite sis-in-law suggested we go get haircuts.  I more than willingly agreed.  Well we’re not fans of shelling out a ton of dinero for a haircut so we tried a new hair college.  Hey, those gals got to learn somehow.

 So after a very nice deep conditioning treatment it was back to the chopping chair.  Dallis, the very energetic and excited student, put my hair in a pony tail at my shoulders and cut it off thinking we could donate it to Locks of Love.  I’m still not sure if it’s long enough to send in, so I need to go look into that. 

Well the haircut that was supposed to be one length right above my shoulders ended up being a little more difficult and unfamiliar territory for Dallis.  The mentor teacher gave her some suggestions and chop chop chop, off came a few more inches!!  The teacher ended up fixing the back and here’s what I look like now!!

New Hair 

I only had my cell phone camera, not the best quality, but you get the gist of the cut.  I really do like it and for being 9 months pregnant I am so surprised I wasn’t crying.  My new haircut really has changed the shape of my face I think.  I keep finding these long strands coming to the front and I don’t know what to do with them, so I cut like an inch off to make it the same length as the hairs on the side.  I’ve found like 3 of these long strands?!?  Oh well!  I figure after baby #2 comes, my hair will be so whacked out and screwed up royally that it really won’t matter what cute new do I have.

 So here’s to change!!  Thanks Aurie and Heather for posting about your hair to get me thinking about change.  And thanks my fave sis-in-law for just telling me to do it.  I think she was surprised at how easily I gave in =o)  I wonder what will be next??  But first, we’ve got to get kiddo #2 here and then we can get back to the “work in progress” project.  Can you believe I have a 10 year reunion coming up next year???  Aughhh!
