Locks of Love

Tuesday, March 24, 2009.....

For the past several years, my hair has been long and straight. In fact, too long for my taste, but for the longest time I hadn't a clue what to do with it.

Initially, I started growing out my hair because I had one too many razor haircuts. Although, I have strong thick hair, the cuts were starting to just fall flat. I still wanted a style and left that decision in the trusting hands of the stylist. Unfortunately, she fell flat. However, I could never put my finger on it, but for $100/cut, I decided I would just grow out my hair until I discovered what I wanted.

While I was watching my hair grow and grow and grow, I was still unsure what I wanted. Finally, this past January, I was so over long hair, but realized I could still give to charity while unemployed. I just had to stick it out, grow the hair for a couple of months and then chop it off for Locks of Love.

I was waiting to have enough hair that it would be 10 inches from my shoulders. I found out I have more than that and am stoked. Today, I chopping off my hair and couldn't be happier.

I can't wait....

my work friend did that and went to a place in westport for the chop – when they found out why she was doing it they didn't charge her for her haircut, which i thought was VERY nice.

that's a great thing for you to do!

(as for me, i'm still pretty banged up – was a rough night sleeping with the bruises!)

kk - Westport? That is where I was going for the really bad $100/cuts....

Love the cut and can't wait for hubby to see. My hair has always been long & straight and always in a ponytail.

Sorry, about all the bruises.
