Drum roll please.....

So after hearing all your suggestions and pleas to not cut my hair here's the end product!!

Before

Please excuse the sucker....I had to have something to keep my mind off what was about to happen!

I had about a million little ponytails all over my head. The average person's hair would have about two or three and I had seven or eight.

And then it began....

Gotta have a sense of humor!

After

The final product! This is after my first wash and straighten. You never know how its going to really look until after you do it yourself.


















These were the inspiration! Katherine at Just Lovely suggested the picture of Sophia Bush on the right and I found the picture on the left. A great combination because I have curly hair and can wear it both ways.

So all in all it wasn't too traumatic! I still can't believe I cut a foot plus of hair off, but it was all for a great cause. I also found out about a new program while getting my hair cut. It is a program to help with oil spills....There are over 2,600 oil spills a year and it has been found that hair and fur are the most absorbent when it comes to cleaning up oil. A group of very smart people started taking hair clippings from salons and turning them into hair mats to be used at an oil spill. The mats are then sent to a farm where a certain kind of mushroom fees off the oil in the hair mats and removes it. Using this cycle, the mats can be used up to 16 times!!! The salon I was at participates in this great program and so should yours!!! The link to the website is here

Matter of Trust

Check it out and get your salon involved!!!

Thanks again for all your suggestions! Have a great Saturday :)

  1. Nice work! I have donated my hair twice- I am going for 5 times . . . to make a wig. But it takes forever! Good for you. You had a ton of hair- I am sure you are struggling not to touch it all the time! (I know I always do. = ) )

  5. Love it! Love it! Love it! You probably feel like your head is weightless and while washing it and drying it your hands probably want to continue with the stroke through your hair, but then realize it's not there. :-) It does take time to getting used to...but before you know it, you'll wonder how you ever had your hair long. I always contemplate growing my hair back out and always go with the cut again. It gives me a more updated look...you never had that problem. :-) Can't wait to have you back in Florida! Miss ya!
