My New Haircut

Sunday, August 03, 2008

Even though I have lost almost 70lbs, I promised myself when I lost 50 I would get a new haircut. I was to big of a chicken until this weekend lol and it still took alot of people to talk me into, with special thanks going to my hubby and my super cool brother-in-law for giving that extra little push and encouragement!

I have had long hair forever, and well with little kids and being busy all the time, I wanted something very low maintenance and that wasn't falling in my face ever 5 seconds. My main hairstyle since having the girls was pulling it straight back and into a ponytail. Anymore, it was making me feel all blah and frumpy having it pulled back all the time, so I knew I needed a change.

I am happy to say that I love my new haircut! It feels like I have lost an extra 20lbs lol. And best of all I can just wash it and go!

I had a little over 13 inches cut off and I donated it to a local hair loss place for children who provides kids with free wigs until they are 21. So not only did I get a makeover of sorts but was able to help someone out along the way!

    Thank you thank you thank you for donating your hair...I do not have long enough hair to donate, but a very special little girl who is a neighbour of our (and who saw several family members - 3 grandparents battle cancer) decided to grow and donate her hair for her eighth birthday...she inspired others in our area and she ended up generating 30 or so donations (II foget it was last spring -and it is surprising how few people have long enough (untreated!) hair.) and she raised over $5,000 - ...and all of our awareness...what you did makes a huge difference for people with cancer.

    looks good. i did the same thing after i had my son who is now 7 months my hair took a turn. i always had very long hair and then about 2 months ago i had to cut it off. i was so nervous and had to have tons of people to talk me into it and now my co-workers and family love it. they dont want me to let it grow.

    Your hair looks fantastic! I have told myself that I need to get a hair cut soon as it's far too long now and I AM getting married in a few months, so I need a fresh look!!!!!!!!!

    I hope the girls are just as pleased!

    Love the way your hair looks!! It even looks curly.
    I am glad that you are happy about the haircut. I remember when I cut my long hair some years ago, how I cried when I did it, but felt so good afterwards.
    Also proud of you for donating the hair.
