Getting my hair cut!

So after many many months on deciding what hair style to get and how many inches to get cut off, I have finally decided.

I'm getting about 15 inches cut off and donating it to Locks of Love. And then my hair could be down to the length of my chin.

I already have a (horrible) before shot of me. And later tonight I'll have a (hopefully good_ after shot of me.

I am so super nervous!

ETA: Here's the before shot. I know I look horrible.

I still need to upload the before shot, but here's the after.
I love it! It's such a difference from my hair being at like the middle of my back to where it is now!!

I'm sending out what I cut off to locks of Love tomorrow.

Eta, its not uneven at all, It was just the way I was standing/positioning my head

Wow, that is a big change, Darylann! But I really like it! You know, the more I see pictures of you, the more you remind me of someone I know hehe (it's a good thing, you both are very pretty!)

ETA - I bet it will be a ton easier to care for!! That's the one thing I don't like about long hair... :P

oh thank you Allie!

I straightened it when I got home because the guy put in a flip that just wasn't me, and when I was brushing my hair I was still expecting to go so much longer.

Hopefully now I wont be going through shampoo and conditioner like water!

Darylann!! It looks nice! I'm trying to grow mine out right now. It's tough!! But I bet you feel a ton lighter. I know I do after getting even just a couple of inches cut off.

aww Thanks Mariah!!

I've always wanted to donate, but I never had enough hair. And then when my hair got to strangling me at night, I knew it had to go.

I got all dolled up today before work. Straightened my hair, put on makeup.. I think I look hot! LOL

*wolf whistle* Looks pretty darn good. I wish that I could do that but I don't like the way I look in short hair. Mine is not quite as long as your before picture. It is such a pain having to braid or put it in a bun to go ride. If I leave it down when I am working at the barn, the wind blows it into my face and I always seem to take a deep breath at the same time and suck some strands down my throat and choke myself. LOL. You look great and I am sure that it is much easier.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
