Look Mom, No Hair!

Last week I asked you guys to pick my next hairstyle. And quite a few of you weighed in (thank you). But the results? Were rather ambiguous. The third option was out, but 1 and 2 were neck and neck.

So I did what any good Libra would do. I took my trusty little smartphone to my appointment, showed my hairstylist the two photos and asked her to pick.

It’s a sign of just how well she knows me that she took me seriously.  She stepped back from the mirror. Walked around me once or twice. Looked at my phone. Looked back at me. Then she smiled and said, “Alright girl, let’s do this thing.”

Next thing I knew, she’d turned on the electric clippers. And I? Silently freaked out at the sight of all my hair hitting the floor.

Here’s where we ended up:

Amber's new hairstyle.

What do you think?

My new do from the side.

That's what I call short.

It’s taking a little getting used to. But you know what? With every lock of hair that fell to the floor, I began to feel a bit more sassy. Less like a mom and more like me.

That’s the kind of change I was looking for.

    Very cute! I can’t wait to see it in person, soon. It always feels weird going short after having long hair for a while. I’ve done that a few times in my life. Right now, I’m loving the long hair, but I know I’ll get sick of it at some point, again.

      When it’s long, i want it short. When it’s short, I get the urge for long before too long. Another example of the grass is greener syndrome.

        Exactly! My husband told me before I got pregnant that he liked when I had long hair. I figured it would be easier if I left it alone, and being pregnant, it grew out well and looked great. Of course, now that my baby’s four months old, it’s starting to look flat and most of it’s falling out because of the loss of hormones. I’ve wanted to grow it long to donate to “Locks of Love”, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get it long enough for that! Plus, it was silly to have it so long last summer while I was pregnant. The heat and humidity we had meant my hair was always up in a ponytail.

    Very cute, you wear that hairstyle well. I need longer hair…my neck would feel neckid (pun on the word naked?)

    I love it! You have such balls to chop it off that short and I LOVE how well it turned out. A bit funky. A bit girly. Greatness.

    Gorgeous!

    I love to get my hair cut. Something about that very physical act has a very visceral effect.
