cropped locks & fresh starts | personal
Lots of women have long hair. I never understood that. It’s probably because, when I had long hair, simply attempting to put it in a ponytail was a nightmare! Long hair was just too challenging for me. For some reason or another, I started growing my hair out when I was 17 and hardly had it trimmed until I was 21. I kept it long for our wedding, but then I chopped it all off as soon as we returned from our honeymoon. I haven’t had long hair since and am pretty decided that I never will again! Ever since I was a kid I knew short hair was just more “me”.
Anyway, sorry to make an entire blog post about hair, but I’m very excited about my next haircut today! Shout out to my mother in law for her awesome skills! I don’t know how it happened, but one day I looked in the mirror and realized I had a bob-cut. Nothing against bob-cuts, but it just isn’t me. So, in order to rectify the situation, I’m cutting it short(er)!
I think it’s my brother Justin’s fault that I started shaping my hair after Shannyn Sossamon, but for some reason I never got gutsy enough to truly try and pull it off. I know you’ll all lose sleep at night worrying about my hairstyle :) But you have to “cut” me a break – it’s slow season!
And yes, I am aware I look nothing like Shannyn, but I’m hoping the shape of this cut works on my face! Happy weekend everybody.
