A little "less of me" this morning....

Yesterday I did something I regret today. I got a short haircut. My hair was shoulder length up until then. My sister (a hairdresser) always did my hair but 6 months ago she "retired" and hung up her scissors. Anyway - I tried this new salon and brought in a picture of what I wanted. I had decided to go pretty short this time. Not sure was just a whim I guess. Apparently the stylist wasn't too good at copying a picture.

Tonight is my in-law's 50th wedding anniversary gala and I'm feeling self-conscious about showing up in my new "do". I feel like a peacock - you know - small head and large bottom! I'm not sure what I was thinking. I think maybe I wasn't. I know I just wanted a change and I felt like my longer hair (shoulder length) was bringing my face down and emphasizing my age. Hubby loves the new cut. He says I look younger. I just feel so...naked.

I guess I'll get used to it. And it's only hair after all. It'll grow back. And who knows. Maybe I'll get used to it and decide I like it after all!

A new hair stylist is always stressful for me. After many years of bad haircuts I have finally found the man of my dreams - I will drive hours for this guy - but lucky for me he's just 10 minutes away.

I was tired of crap hair cuts - telling the hairdresser it was fine - and then getting home and crying.

Hope you can feel good with your new cut - who knows - over the next few days it might grow on you! :)

I just got my hair cut too. It was about halfway down my back and they cut it to right below my chin. I almost choked when I looked in the mirror. I think some of us try to hide behind our long hair, or like u said "even-out" the weight on top with a bigger hairstyle. I certainly did this for a long time. But now, I'm like ROCK IT, GIRL. YOU LOOK GOOD!

Cheers on setting yourself free.
