Locks of Love

Well, I've been saying I was going to cut my hair for Locks of Love since this past December... but my hair really seemed to slow in growth over the winter. Yesterday I finally had the chance and my ponytail was long enough for a cut... or chop... which ever you prefer. :)

I was so ready for my hair to be gone. It's been getting knotted at night if I don't keep it in a braid or ponytail. It's always in a braid or ponytail actually. If it's not, my hair goes crazy... like it doesn't know it can just lay straight and be pretty... no, it has to fuzz and wave and get in my mouth and DRIVE ME NUTS! :)

Jeff took this before picture the morning of the cut. The ponytail measured close to 13".

I really wasn't nervous at all. The stylist asked what I wanted and I told her, "Ummm... I don't know. Layers? Something that gives some body. I'm tired of flat, straight, always pulled back. Whatever you think is fine with me." She said she thought I was really laid back for the fact that I was chopping off so much hair and didn't really care what the outcome was. LOL!

I told her, "You just don't know how happy I am to sit here and do nothing!" :)

The cut ponytail was almost a full foot.

It was a great hour spent and quite relaxing for me. Next time I just might have to sign up for the salon's mani/pedi, dip in the hot tub, and then a massage. Oh, and try something in their bistro, too! (Yeah, maybe... someday... well, probably won't happen although I would love it!)

Anyway, it sure was nice to wake up to less hair and less headache!
