The Cut

After.  Highlights are Matrix Red Violet

Baby Girl wanted some color too (wash out)

I have been wanting to cut my hair off for quite some time.  I like to grow it until it drives me crazy and then chop it all off.  Then I am instantly sad that it is gone.  This time is not too different.  Don't get me wrong, I love my cut. It's just difficult to say, "goodbye" to all that hair.  Thank you so much to my lovely mother in law.  She is a wonderful stylist and cuts and colors my hair whenever I like.  She refuses to take my money so I try to pay her by cooking dinner.  

For the first time ever, I have donated my hair to Locks of Love.  For those who may not already know, this charity organization makes highest quality hair pieces and wigs for children in need.  If you are chopping off a significant amount of hair, I highly suggest mailing it all to these great people rather than letting it fall to the floor.  Now I have a fantastic makeover and my hair is going to someone else who can enjoy it.  I must say that while I do miss feeling my hair down my back, this is probably the first time I do not regret cutting it all off.  I am very proud knowing that a child will walk around feeling a little more confident wearing my hair.

    1. Thank you. When I told Baby Girl we were going to give my care to a kid that doesn't have any, she wanted to give it to her infant nephew.
