Hair Today Gone Tomorrow...

2 weeks ago I took the plunge and cut my hair. I wish I could say it was a spare of the moment thing or it was due to some crisis in my life but it wasn't. I had ummed and ahhed about it for a few years and none of my friends were very encouraging about it (not that I needed their approval). I think it was over the summer that I started thinking about it seriously but never really had the courage but the thought was always in my head.

Around November time one of my work mates was asking about my hair, don't remember how the conversation had started and I mentioned that I wanted to cut it and she said she thought I would suit it. I nearly hugged her because that was the nicest thing she could have said at that time. I suppose my biggest worry was that if I chopped it and it didn't suit me what was I going to do. After the conversation with my workmate I knew I was going to do it, it was only a matter of time.

It wasn't long after this I hit good old google to find ways to disguise a very bad hair cut and to also find ways to style my short hair. I was amazed at the amount of information available on the net. Master T and I spent a whole night learning how to tie head scarfs in different styles from some youtube tutorials.

After all this research I felt I was armed with the info I required and started feeling more confident about my decision. It was probably a couple more weeks before I actually put a pair of scissors through my hair.

2 Fridays ago I went to bed with a head full of shoulder length hair and woke up Saturday morning with nearly all of it gone. Then took a trip to the barbers and not the hairdressers in the morning and came out with a head of not so long hair that I absolutely love.

I went from this.

To this

I know my attempt on a selfie are not great but I am working on it.

The before picture doesn't really show how long my hair really was (shoulder length) because it was always tied into a bun.

I do have a plan on how I want my hair to look. This just happens to be the beginning.

Am I vain or what? To dedicate the longest post I have ever written on my hair.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to whatever the new year brings.
