Last Friday, I decided to chop all my hair off. Like. OFF. Okay, maybe not buzzed off, and maybe not pixie-cut off, but it’s gone.
My usual routine is to grow my hair long past my shoulders for a couple years before chopping it short to chin-length. It’s always hard for me to do – I grew up with LOOOONG hair. Think down to your butt-crack long. I remember when I first had my hair all chopped off – I was maybe in Grade 5 – it was the weirdest feeling.
Ever since then, I haven’t cut it drastically, except for a couple occasions. Long hair as always seemed like a security blanket for me. I feel more feminine in a way, but with my short hair, I feel more grown-up. As my grandma said, “I don’t look like a teeny-bopper.” lol
When I went to the hair dresser’s, I just told her girl, “I want it chopped off.” And so she did; It took an hour and I thought I was going to be late for work. The end result, however, was pleasing:
Okay, that wasn’t taken on the day of the chop, but you get the idea, right? Short! The girl used sooo much product in my hair that it felt nasty. (I only ever use hair spray) Now that I’ve styled it myself, it feels better. I get a couple weird cow-licky things that I don’t know how to fix, but I’ll figure it out. Flat iron when I have the money maybe?
So what’s the boldest thing you ever got did to yerr herr?
And now, if you haven’t watched this video before, you probably should, because if your sense of humour is anything like mine, you’ll find it hilarious. (Yes, I have frat-boy humour, amongst other types.)
Happy Thursday! :)

CUTE! I chopped my hair like that…. 3 years ago now! And I’ve never gone back!! Haha I LOVE short hair
I do love it, but I get tired of styling/blow-drying it every day! That’s the only downside, I think! lol
Cute! I love it! =D
I have super thick hair, and anytime I’ve cut it it has been such a relief. I love not having to worry about the mane =)
When drastic things happen to my hair, it’s never intentional. Like one time I wanted to get it cut shorter – below my chin, long enough for a ponytail, I brought a picture and everything – and the hairdresser practically buzzed all my hair off. I looked like a boy (another customer actually referred to me as a “nice young man”!) – it was horrible and took FOREVER to grow out! And one time I, uh, tried to cut my own bangs … I couldn’t get them even so I kept cutting and cutting and … yeah. I had to wear a bandanna/hat for 6+ weeks until they grew out. I haven’t had bangs since :D I’m thinking about getting my hair cut short … long hair is too much hassle now that I have a baby who likes to spit up all over everything and my shower time is somewhat limited ….
When my little cousins were babies they loooooved to pull on my long hair! It was horrible but everyone thought it was cute! Ha!
I love your new hair cut! I’ve got such long thick hair, and I’ve been itching to cut it all off. I’d probably chicken out though and only cut it to about shoulder length.
I chickened out on getting bangs. I’ve thought about it hundreds of times but I just can’t do it! I had bangs (mostly) all through elementary school and I’m afraid of looking like I’m 7 :P
cute, it looks good!
Looks great! I too used to do the same, but now I can’t stand to have it much longer than my shoulders at the most.
I never style it – just brush and go, really. I’m hopeless with my hair. I do have a bit of a cowlick, but have no idea how to tame it.
Cute! Are you getting used to it yet?? I remember when I first chopped my hair off it was so hard to get used to!!! :)
I slowly am! Brushing it was weird at first, and then it was adjusting the amount of shampoo and conditioner! lol
