locks of love

 

11 inches gone!

cut

 

and for a great cause =)

I may have literally gagged while Justin was cutting off this ponytail, but I haven’t regretted it a second since.

and this was waaaaaay back on October 5th – I haven’t been sharing much lately have I?

locks

{If you live near Lexington and are looking for a fabulous stylist – Allure Spa, ask for Justin. You’ll thank me later =)}

 

I think I may be a short hair convert now!!

I feel “polished”, like I may have an actual “style” instead of the long mess I’ve been sporting for years. Or, as my friend Ashley called it, very “pharmacistish” =)

 

It even looks half-way decent if I have to go to a THIRD day without a wash.

Holy cow.

I use to wash my hair everyday when it was long and there are few things I hate more than a hair dryer – the heat, the noise, the dizziness from flipping my head over.

I’m loving it. I do miss my ponytail when it’s time for a face wash, but other than that, I only threw it in a ponytail when it was grimy… by the end of the DAY!

 

Later that same week, I posted this photo of my experimental, curly mop I went crazy on with a mini curling iron on Facebook with the caption:

“Little Orphan Annie came to visit today! 20 years later, grown up, married, working as a pharmacist, has a sweet little fur child. Seems like it's not such a "hard knocked life" for the girl anymore. Just wish she could find a new hair style after 26 years...”

I’ll have to reattempt the Christina Applegate look I was going for after it gets a little longer:

…and I get a little wilder ;)

{I searched for a good picture of her to show you the look I want – I couldn’t believe this little montage was perfect to show it from different angles AND to keep it entertaining!}

  5. Once you go short, you'll never go back! When I decided to grow mine out for the sole purpose of Locks of Love, I told my hairdresser I would need LOTS of cheerleading...and I did! But I'm so glad I did it, and the short hair is so much more baby friendly!

  10. Your hair looks fabulous!!!!! What a gift! It really sets off your face and your beautiful eyes! I think the curls are adorable. To get the Christina Applegate look, use a big iron and don't actually use the clip part of it! Take the strand of hair, wrap it around and don't go all the way to the root or all the way to the end of the hair. I know this sounds weird, but it works! You could even Youtube "soft curls" or something like that to show you. I think the curls are gorgeous and the first picture is just stunning! You could have no hair and still be beautiful!

  19. You are so cute! I think your hair looks wonderful. I keep saying I am going to get mine cut, but I haven't found a stylist here in Tampa that I like well enough. Plus, mine hair lives in a ponytail

    ReplyDelete
  20. Awwwww! I absolutely LOVE your hair! And it's for such a great cause! I cut my hair into a bob about 2 years and I miss it so much! It's so much easier to style and there is something about short hair that is always so sleek and sexy. You go girl!

    Justin does my hair too! He is awesome! He last cut my hair on October 7th and said that earlier in the week he had cut a girls hair up to her chin! I bet he was talking about you! Small world. It looks great!

  40. Gorgeous! I love it. You look so sophisticated.

    I've always wanted to do that (donate to lock of love) but I'm scared to look like a kid afterwards (short hair has always made me look younger)

    Is that horrible of me?! Maybe one day! :)

  41. your hair looks awesome! i know how it feels to finally chop it off. unfortunately, i have been trying to grow it out for a while now ... just to see if i like it. my patients is growing thin as it is hitting my shoulders and trying to relive a mary tyler moore look ... which i hate! patience is a virtue :)

I just shared my thoughts, I'd love to hear you share yours! {Besides, I'm tired of listening to the voices in my head.} I kid, I kid... ;)
