Chop, chop!

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.

Is this the surprise you were talking about? Looks good (and red-did you dye it too?).

Happy Valentine's Day!

Liz B said...

It does look really cute. And Andrea is right. It does look red. Maybe it's just the light?

Jer and Jules said...

Tarah, I love it! It's so cute! How do the kids like it?

michelle said...

Collin also moaned when I told him and he didn't even want to see the pictures....I on the other hand think it looks cute:)

Christie said...

YAY I'm proud of you, the last time I cut your hair you freaked out and I didn't cut off anything close to 10 INCHES!! It looks great :)

Tarah said...

No, I didn't dye it. It's just the light and the ugly not really blonde, not really brown color my hair normally is. Someday I'll try to dye it a decent color.

Rorie said...

I love it! Your hair looks cute. Can't wait to see it in person.

Loni said...

That is cute. I like it. I like mine also and am thinking that I might stay with the short, well. . . we'll see.

I salute you for doing a good service. Leave the color alone. There is nothing wrong with it.

Nice photography. You are totally centered and I love Caden's expression.

Hill Fam said...

It looks fantastic! I wish my hair curled like that!

Ma & Pa J. said...

It is so darling! I like it both ways and you deserve to have something a little easier to deal with. You did a good thing. It's fun to have a change sometimes.

You are the bravest soldier I have ever met. To be honest, I thought it was all talk, something to rile Dan up about. You are inspiring, it looks darling and I can't wait to see it in person!

Mountain Maiden said...

Definitely a cute cut Tarah! I know about that whole anxiety thing. Mine's been long since a bad cut in high school, but I let my stylist sister cut it at the beginning of last summer. It was short! And I ended up loving it! Erik thought it was sexy, so that didn't hurt either. And you're right, it's a good cause, it grows back, and it feels so much lighter. Hope everything is going great with you and yours!

Krystal said...

I LOVE IT! Its super cute and sassy. Dan is right about the sassy part. Haha. We should try to get together sometime this week. We could go to a park or you guys can come hang out at our new place. Braden would love to show off his new room.

Jessica said...

I love it Tarah! I would it agrees with the cute personality of yours, and it has nothing to do with being sassy! Who sassy? That's what I tell Chad when he calls me that. I really like ti curly too!! Miss you guys, but hope you are loving it there!!

Katy said...

I love it tarah! I think it fits!

Karen said...

You look great!! I love the cut. You are so cute.

Manndi said...

Way cute! I think it looks good both straight and curly. I found the same thing when I got brave enough to chop my long hair, that it looks better longer and is easier to manage :)

Rachael said...

I like it! -- I cut off my hair recently too... isn't it liberating! I love how easy it is to manage!

Becky said...

Holy...19 comments! That's fantastic. I love your hair. I've always been a fan of shorter hair and I think it's super flattering on you. Good job. I especially love that you donated it. You're wonderful in every way!

Jed, Nanc n' the boys! said...

Tarah, Tarah, ya always gotta Jab that "60 degree" wheather right to my heart.

Jillinebinny said...

I think it is super super super superdooper cute :)

I've been thinking of whacking all my hair off...but i'm not sure yet...

But it's cute :) And i'm excited i found your families blog, since you never update on facebook LOL.

Jennie said...

I love your hair short! It so cute! I totally forgot your hair had curl to it. I don't think I've seen it that way since we were in middle school. I thought it straightened when we got older. I like it straight and curly. I think curly deffinately adds a little sass!

I LOVE IT!! Super cute!! It is so much faster isn't it. I do miss my short hair but am growing it out because I miss my long hair. I don't think I will ever be satisfied. We NEED to do something. Hopefully Isaac's schedule will get lighter here in a bit and we can go visit.
