Flip the switch

The other day I got a haircut. After four years of growing out my bob, I had a head full of two-feet-long hair. But it really didn’t feel like me anymore – it was as if a light went off in my head. Cut it off. My goal is to eventually go shorter, so this in between hair will suit me for the next few months.

really like it guys. I was very afraid that I was going to end up with something ugly or not me, and I think that was another reason I put it off for so long. It’s a little longer on one side, and it will make it super easy for me to wear my hair with my natural wave.

So long trapping my hair when putting on a bra, getting choked by hair wrapping around my throat as I slept, finding long hairs everywhere, impossible tangles, and getting caught in the car.

    Ahhhhhhhh Eli, I looooooooooove it! 

    And getting you hair caught in your bra? Yeah, last time my hair was long enough for that to be possible, I wasn’t old enough to wear (or need) bras. I cannot imagine!

      Trapping your hair in your bra is so dumb, almost as dumb as finding hair in your butt. The awful stories are endless 🙂

  • ohh the perils of long hair! haha. Love the new cut, it looks great on you!

    • Eli

      I’m sure you can feel my long hair pain 🙂 hang in there!

    Sometimes it is so nice to have a change and this haircut seems to have done that. Glad you feel like yourself again (I think it looks great. Still plenty of length but lighter too! At least that’s how I felt when cutting my hair from super long to about your length!)

      I’m sooo glad I cut it, but I’m still having phantom long hairs feelings 🙂

    It’s still quite long! Looks great!

      It’s pretty short when it’s curly, I haven’t straightened it yet. I’ve only worn it curly since I got it cut, and truthfully I’m scared to see how it will look straight!

    Pretty. 🙂 I thought having shorter hair (used to be below my butt) would cut down on the amount of hairs I found everywhere but it actually increased them. They were freer to escape, haha.

      I’ve been find lots of hairs too 🙁 but at least they aren’t two feet long! I swear I thought I was going bald!!
