A couple of weeks ago I decided to take a random Tuesday off so I could go get my haircut by my favorite stylist before she moves away to Buffalo. I also decided it was finally time to take the plunge she and I have been talking about for oh … 2+ yrs now. Yep, we cut my hair shorter. Hah! ๐Ÿ™‚

So of course we must start with a reference point.

The before shot.

I was also inspired by the APW conversation about donating your hair for solidarity wigs. Since I missed my opportunity at 17 to donate the 12″ we cut off then (it was waist length at that point) I decided this time I would make good on 17 yo me’s wishes. So we cut enough off that I could donate to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program. Their minimum is 8″ which we hit easily. They are hosting their second annual National Donate Your Hair Day September 7th 2013, if you’d like to join the cause. I am a bit early with my donation. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The after shot taken in the car on haircut day! Guess that means I should take more photos…

I am still getting used to it (it’s such a change!) but my husband is constantly complimenting me on it. He’s just happy I wear my hair down way more now. While I am totally missing the ease of throwing it up in a big messy ponytail bun thing on top of my head. Hahaha. I guess I can see his point. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh and on the topic of random Tuesdays off. Can I say yes please I would love more!?!?!? It was such a relaxing day and I got so many things accomplished which included sitting outside in Grandview eating some Jeni’s. Nom.ย There will definitely be more random mid week days off for me in the future. And by more I mean like 1 every 3-4 mos. ๐Ÿ˜€
