Before and After

Well folks, I finally did it! I CUT MY HAIR!!! I have pretty much always had short hair growing up until a couple of years ago when I decided to try something different and grow it out to donate to Locks of Love. Well, once it grew out, I really liked it long so I kept it-for 4 years! I have had this plan to cut it for a long time but have just been putting it off for multiple reasons/excuses. Mostly, I was waiting til we could afford a really good Haircut and someone that I trusted to do it. Done, and Done soooo...I did it! The girl I wanted to do it was booked so I just had someone else do it from that Salon. I figured if she worked there, pretty  much everyone at that salon would be good. I LOVE it!!! And Jarom LOOOOOVES it!!! He can't stop looking at me and keeps telling me how beautiful and cute I am. I'm loving it! :) He says he likes the short hair better than the long. He also says that he would like it a little shorter! WHAT?! I was afraid he would not like it too short so I started out a little longer. Maybe next time I will be a little more creative. I was surprised at how LONG it was. I thought for sure we would just get by with cutting off the bare minimum to donate but we had room to spare. We cut off a good foot or MORE.  It's a really fun change and I'm glad I took the plunge! Anyway, now for the fun part!

After:
So- I didn't get any angles or anything but the back is shorter and has really cute layers. I didn't get very many good shots.

So cute! I love it! You're one of those people who looks amazing with long AND short hair, but the short I think is my favorite. You're so beautiful!

Oh my gosh!!! It looks great! I remember when I got mine cut Jarom asked where I'd gotten it done because you were thinking of cutting yours. Well you look stunning!

OK- Steph- you look so good! You look alot older, in a good way. You look so pretty and happy in this picture- and I got the tingles when I read you were growing it out in the first place for locks of love! So sweet and thoughtful, and so needed, thanks for doing that- (I know you didn't do it for me, i'm just grateful for people like you) love you!- oh- and isn't it strange what our husbands like? what a great surprise!

Steph,
That is soooooo cute! I guess I was just always used to you having short hair and the long hair had to grown on me, get it:) but it looked beautiful on you, of course, and I loved it but this new cut is the best ever.

Love it, have fun in Vegas!!

Very cool. I was actually thinking of growing mine out for Locks too. Cute cut. I think you should go shorter though, you could really pull it off- only if you want to. Isn't it the worst trusting other people to do your hair? I have a hard time, even at the salons I work at.
