i left with a bag of hair

I was in the mood for a change. For months I was contemplating chopping off my hair again, and decided to make it happen. Of course, I am lazy, so I never *do* it--generally I walk out the door with wet hair and that is fine by me. But I have been trying to make an effort (makeup at least once a week!) lately. I thought I'd take it to the next level.

 A few weeks ago, my friend Claudia was sweet enough to show me how to straighten my hair. My mom bought me a flatiron, but it is still in the box. My hair was long enough to tuck into the back of my pants; especially when straight.

I went to pp's stylist and coordinated my appointment with hers (so she could stop me from doing something insane that I'd regret).   

The stylist straightened my hair with the blowdryer and took off 10" as if it were nothing. I still had a good amount to work with, so she started doing her thing. There was a good amount of hair on the floor at the end. 

 CC was concerned about me making the cut in winter (even though it's December 2 and 63 degrees in Chicago), so it's nice that I could keep so much length and still have enough to donate. But it's not long enough for a ponytail, so going to the gym is going to be interesting.

Of course, this is how it looks out of the salon. We will see what "style" my kindergarten-level skills will produce on Monday. Let's just pretend this is what I look like all the time, shall we? 

Now pp and I are on the same trim cycle (apparently I have to start getting haircuts every eight weeks...). Making a date out of getting my hair did with one of my favorite people is probably the best way to make sure I actually do it. 
I sort of like linking to old posts, so I'll still throw that in there once in awhile.

In which the word gets out that my husband likes lesbians.

OMG, your hair is so long and gorgeous! Even after cutting it! Love the new hairstyle.

My jaw dropped at the difference - you look so chic with your new hairstyle. The long hair was young, fresh...but this is niiiice.

I love your new hair! I went big earlier this year and cut ALL mine off...I went from hair down to my waist to a pixie. Change is good! :)

GORGEOUS - i really like you with shorter hair actually.. the layers look super pretty! Long hair is beautiful and exotic, but if you're going to stick it up in a bun everyday you might as well have a lovely layered cut like this!

change IS good! thanks you guys! i do have to say, that extra 20 min in the morning to *do* it is a big adjustment, though.

wow, a pixie cut is DARING.
