Still a mop, but at least shorter

Me, April 2009


Shorter, lighter, still shaggy. The ends of my hair are in complete shock to have lost so much of themselves. As of yesterday before I got it cut, the ends of my hair could be tucked into my jeans (I wear low jeans, but not ultra low). Today, the longest length of hair goes maybe a 1/2-inch below my bra strap. So that’s about 8 inches off, more on the short layers. I like it, thank goodness. My bangs are rebelling and refusing to look good but I’ll subdue them eventually.

BTW, the last time I cut my hair was roughly 2.5 years ago and I hated that cut. That’s why it took me so long to do it again.

    Wow!! You had some LONG hair woman!! I like the cut, it’s a lot shorter but it’s not short. It looks good. The color looks good too but I have to admit to liking the red of the before pic since I usually have a similar shade in my hair. LOL You look perty! :)

    I recently got a hair cut too and hate it. My hair is super, super, super straight and easy to screw up if not cut properly. Well, the woman was going in the right direction but her execution needs to be fine-tuned. You can see all the cuts in the back and it doesn’t lay well at all. It’s awful. Finding someone who really knows what they are doing when it comes to extremely straight hair is so hard. Another reason I miss NC! I had found the hairdresser of my dreams. I hate that I had to leave her. :(

    It looks very flattering! You look cute and somehow younger. :)

    Looks good! I used to have my hair so long like that when I was in my early 30’s, to right above my butt. It was so pretty when we first moved here. But our climate here is so dry that it was too much of a challenge. I’ve kept it around the length you have now for a few years and even that is rough but I’m just not a short hair kind of person. I know what you mean about avoiding the salon, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve actually liked a haircut.
