That was 3 years ago. My hair has gotten REALLY long. It's pretty, but I had gotten sick of braids and ponytails because even those got in the way and bothered me in the humidity. Most of the summer my hair has been in a bun at the nape of my neck. Talk about nun style. I have been waiting for it to cook off a little bit so I could cut it off again.
I finally did it Wednesday night!!! My hair was longer than it has ever been. We cut 14 inches off to donate and it still is just above my shoulders! I love my new hair cut. It is similar to my cuts in the past, but it is easy and fun.
I may be going back in a couple of weeks to add subtle auburn highlights.....eeeek! I have virgin hair and highlights kind of freak me out. But they look so good. I'm debating. Let me know what you think. My beautician, who thinks I should definitely do it, kept reminding me, "It's always reversible if you hate it!"
Here are the before and after pictures:
This is what I mean by Auburn highlights...
