If you follow me on Twitter or Pinterest, then you’ve probably seen me tweet/pin about wanting to cut my hair for the last few months. I’ve actually wanted to do it for a while, but I always chicken out. I tried out a new salon last Friday to go a little bit darker and somehow got the courage to cut 12 inches off! I was texting my sister and Thomas from the salon about it and they both pretty much said “stop talking about it and do it already”. So, I did! I was surprisingly not attached to my long hair at all and instantly loved my new do. While I think long hair is really beautiful, I hated how heavy it was (I have really, really thick hair) and the fact that it had no style or shape to it. My new cut is so refreshing and I really feel like “me”, which is funny because I never thought of myself as a person who would love short hair. I guess it was worth the risk- I don’t know if I’ll ever want to grow my hair out again. But I can never say never… ;)
P.S. I went to Richard at Population Salon for the cut and color. He was amazing and took a lot of time to make sure the cut was absolutely perfect, which takes even more time with thick hair. I was also really impressed with the color, which sometimes takes multiple times to get right because I’m really picky. He completely understood what I wanted and it came out better than I expected! I’ll definitely be going back to him.
