Hair Today~Gone Tomorrow

So if you know me or have been following my blog for awhile, you may know that I have long straight hair. I also have had this same style for almost the last 20 years...yep I am not a fan of change...but as I am getting older I am finding it harder to wear bows in my ponytails...Yep I am 37 years old and I was wearing bows in my ponytails up until Saturday! Well I got tired of it so I decided to cut it! AAHHHHH!!! I DID WHAT?! I decided to cut it!
Here are the BEFORE pictures......from the back...
...and now from the front...My hair was mostly one length...long...and the older I got the frizzier it got! I had some long layers in it, but living in the hotness of AZ summers I usually just wore it up in a pony most days!

Well one of my good friends, Maurin, is an awesome hairdresser (she is also another coach's wife!). So on a whim I texted her and asked if she could cut my hair. 2 hours later I was in her chair saying "Do whatever you want." Apparently that is a hairdresser dream! She got this huge smile on her face and just looked at me & played with my hair for a few minutes...and then the cutting began...
AAAHHHHH...Over 5 inches...5 inches...was cut from my hair. I am not gonna lie, after the first cut I was a little shell shocked and thought to myself " Self...OMGosh...WHAT DID I JUST DO?!" But I put my trust in my friend and I think it turned out great!
What do you think?
But I must say that I am loving my new do!
Short and sassy with fringe (that is what they call bangs now-a-days apparently!) and layers! This is a HUGE thing for a girl who only gets a haircut once a year and loves her ponytails!
And it's super easy to do...very low maintenance...which I LOVE!

Outta the shower, blow dry and go!SO...whatchya think??
CUZ I am in love with it! Thanks Maurin!

Super cute. You know I am a fan of short hair. But the big question is...can you still pull it up? just in case you are having a ponytail day? It looks like you might be able too...which would still be nice for cleaning the house days. I love it. Nice job Maurin! I am trying to let mine grow a little so I can pull it up too, but we all know how that always turns out. lOL

I love it! I just became a fan of that length hair :) I cut mine about 2 weeks ago and love it, too. It feels so clean. You look very cute. I think it was a great decision and you look years younger.

Stacy said...

I wear mine in a pony tail way to often,but it's so easy to do.

Seriously, I went for my annual haircut on Friday. I don't mean to do that- I am just lazy with my hair unless I have a short haircut. I'm thinking about going short again. Enough about me... Your hair looks wonderful! Can I say it? I will. I think it makes you look younger. Such a fun style for you!

Carin said...

Channa said...

Carol said...

It looks beautiful, Stacey. You were brave and it sure paid off!

I love it! I need to get my hair cut so badly.

Ok don't take this the wrong way but you look younger with that cut!! I mean you did not look older by any means but it is very sassy and I think your hair is just perfect now!!!

Also- A secret I learned about to get rid of all the fizz in your hair is called a Brazilian (NOT WAX) but treatment for your hair..it is about $80 at a salon here but it is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome cut Maurin....when can I fly in?
