Well, it's done. Quite quickly for me too! I was talking to my friend at the park, and we got talking about my hair when she turns to me and says, "Let's go right now! I'll watch your kids." Wow...okay, sure why not? I called Dan to prepare him, and let him know I wouldn't be home for lunch. He was worried. But he got over it and came to the school where I got my hair chopped off. Yikes! She cut my braid off and I ran my fingers through my hair and I thought, "Oh, dear...this is so much shorter than I thought it was going to be....what have I done?" She cut a little more than 10 inches off, and inside I'll admit I was freaking out. But I had come prepared to hate it and just live with it. After all, it was for a good cause, and hair grows back. Mine a little more slower than some peoples, but hey, it would grow back. Dan came before she was done styling it, and he got a little worried too. However, I'll just say this. I like it. Which I was not prepared for. Dan is growing to like it (hehehe) too. He says it fits my personality better...something about being sassy, which I'm not sure how I feel about that. I'm going to show you pictures, but please realize it looks way cuter in person (because I'm just goofy looking in front of a camera....not photogenic at all). So, don't mind the weird look on my face, just look at the hair. Kember took this picture for me. Not a bad job.
It's so quick and easy to do. The best part for me is that even when it's curly (which was another surprise...she styled it straight, which I loved, but thought it would look terribly curly, but low and behold, I like it better than straight!) I still feel like it looks cute at the end of the day. Normally I only thought my hair looked nice for about an hour after I did it, then it started to look...well, not so nice. Now I've even taken naps on it (yes, I do take naps) and I still feel like it looks fine. I had some issues straightening it myself, and I can't really pull it back into a pony tail, but considering how fast it is, hopefully I won't need to.
Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know that I actually did it. I got my hair chopped off.
