About a month ago, I decided to take the plunge and chop my hair off. I wore my long hair back most of the time anyway and I was so tired of it. I kept finding strands of it everywhere – in the baby’s diaper, around her hand, in my car, the shower, stopping up the vacuum cleaner, etc etc. I rarely had time to dry it so there wasn’t much point in having it long anyway.
And so, I cut. it. all. off.
For me, there’s something truly liberating and transformative about a cut this significant. I left feeling lighter, brighter, and happy. I felt like me.
Here is the before:
This is the cut:
And this is me the last time my hair was short, when I was about 20 and first dating my husband. Ten years ago.
A DECADE ago. That’s crazy.
I love that this style takes 5 minutes to do after a shower. I love that my baby can’t tug on it and it doesn’t get caught in my ring sling carrier. But mostly I love that it makes me FEEL young, happy, and reminds me of those early soooo in love days with Carlos.
Have you had a haircut that you loved? Have you ever taken the plunge and made a significant change to your look? Did you have any regrets?
