When I was a freshman in high school, I cut my hair to about my shoulders. And I HATED it. It was just not attractive on me at all! Ever since then I have had long hair. Way long hair my junior and senior years in high school (which got destroyed from playing water polo – all that chlorine!) and then just longer during college. I was going to keep it long and I liked it that way.
I got married at almost 23 (yes I know, still not old), but I had a lot of friends get married before me. And a few months or even weeks after they got married I saw them on campus at BYU and they had chopped their hair! Shoulder length or above. I couldn’t believe it, why would you chop your hair? It was so pretty! And I would reflect back on my freshman do and remind myself that that was not going to be me.
I got married and kept my long hair. My husband thought I would look cute with short hair and tried to convince me to cut it. No way! I would often remind him of my high school story and how awful I looked. Not going there again.
So I started looking at pictures online and on pinterest of cute shorter hairstyles. I called my friend Karilyn and set up the appointment. Ok here goes. I really was more excited than nervous. I just really hoped it looked good because it would take a while to grow out again.
And here it is! I actually LOVE it! And my hubby does too! And my baby can’t pull it quite as easily as she could before.
Have you ever chopped your hair after a big event (wedding, baby, etc)? Good stories, bad stories, let’s hear about your hair cuts!
