Cut Above the Rest

I was always one who thought it was dumb to cut your hair off soon after you got married.  If you wanted long hair for the wedding (so it would look best), why wouldn't you want your hair to look great always?  Well I still believe that.  However.....

My hair was getting tiresome.  I hadn't only grown it long for my wedding, but for years and years.  Long, wavy locks is my signature hairstyle after all!  Though it looked lovely, I didn't want to go down in history as "that girl that always has the same hairdo".  You know who I am talking about, those ladies that had fabulously feathered wings in high school and still flaunt them in 2010?  I couldn't be that.  I decided I just needed a change of hairstyle and it just so happened to fall a little after I got married.  I talked it over with the husband, family, friends, and my hairstylist, who suggested that change was good.  Besides, it grows back!  Shorter hair now doesn't necessarily mean short hair forever.

Anyway, the change went from this:

To this:

I actually think that it looks refreshing and is still quite similar to my old hairstyle, just shorter.  It makes my hair look healthier and thicker as well. What do you think?

I think it looks great! And it's not like a boy haircut or anything, so it's a nice length as far as short hair goes.

It is so cute, and definitely not your typical "chop off your hair after marriage" cut. It definitely suits you! And in any case, cutting hair can be lots of fun, because focusing on growing it out again can be exciting too! But I think this is a very good look for you!
