However since the arrival of baby, my long hair was mostly tied back or bundled up out of the way. My long, silky locks had turned limp, tangled and frazzled with the lack of care and attention.
After a couple of months of my hair just being there but not really being there, I decided to take the plunge and go for it…
Behold, this is me going for the big chop!
When I told the hairdresser what I wanted, her immediate response was “Wha-- are you sure? It must have taken you years to grow your hair this long!”. She was quite apprehensive and repeatedly asked me if I was absolutely sure I wanted to crop it all off. I was just all cool and nonchalant and told her to dive in.
Throughout the session, she kept checking and asking to make sure she wasn’t cutting it too short. “You are so brave!” she said. I told her “It’s really okay. Hair will always grow back!”.
Despite the constant annoying checks and questions (I prefer my haircut sessions to be quiet and relaxing) she did a pretty good job.
Voila! Presenting my new summer look
I feel so liberated after shedding my long locks and am totally loving this fresh new look on me.
The pixie cut a.k.a. boy cut… do you dare?
