…on the new hair.

I’ve been doing some hard thinking about whether or not to cut my hair for the summer. I’d been growing it out for the past four years, and it barely reached my bra clasp on my back. My hair doesn’t grow. So you can see how cutting six inches off would be a big deal for me. About a month ago, I decided I was just going to do it. But only days after my big declaration, three separate people commented that they loved how long my hair was getting and the way I was wearing it. I told them I was thinking of cutting it and all I heard was a resounding NO in response. So that deterred me a little. But after having a conversation with SC about it, he said this: “I love your long hair, but I’m curious to see what you’d look like with short hair too. I want you to do whatever makes you happy.” So basically he was telling me to cut it because he knew that’s what I really wanted to do.

I’ve been wanting to cut it, but I wasn’t sure how short. I hate spending 35 bucks just to get a trim, but I knew I needed something done regardless because all the split ends were making it impossible to do anything with it! My other issue is that I think my face looks fatter with shorter hair, and I’m super self-conscious of my double chin thing I’ve got going on most days. Also, I felt a little like I was losing my femininity by cutting it so short. MY CURLS! Yeah, they’re gone now. I’m slowly realizing that those things I built up in my head simply aren’t true and that I need to get over my insecurities.

In the end, it was the right choice. I waited 5 more days after I officially decided to cut it and I can’t believe it’s all gone. I went from mid-back length to shoulder length. The hairdresser kept asking me if I was sure it was what I wanted. I told her just to do it. It’ll grow back eventually. I took a huge risk and it paid off. I love my hair. So tell me, whaddya think?
