Chop, chop....goes my hair.

I'm an 'on a whim' haircut kind of a girl. I don't have to think about it for long before I take the plunge. I don't dwell on a style or anything I want...I just go for it.

This morning (on my day off), I woke up...and thought, "go get your hair cut". I went to this little down home shop right down the street (have had some decent cuts there before), at the wee hour of 8:45am.

I think I let on to the stylist that it was okay for her to cut more off then I actually really wanted. She went at it. I kept politely saying things like, "Could you leave a little bit more, there?"....or, "do you think we could keep it a little longer?"....but I feel so bad. I don't know why--IT'S MY HAIR. But, gees. This was the first time I've ever felt so anxious in the chair at a salon.

I came with a wet head like I always do, and worried soul---and ran upstairs, plugged in my straightener, blow dried--and here you have it. It's definitely shorter then I wanted. It's definitely VERY short in the back (like...umm...you can see my neck).

I'll be waiting for it to grow out for a month or so, and then it will be just perfect.

ps: i love my green bathroom. and also, i'm not wearing my wedding rings because, remember that weird ring rash i get this time of year? ugh. yea.

  11. Your haircut is sooooo cute. I know how it feels to be scared of short hair. I ALWAYS freak out when I get my hair cut, since it takes it 10 months to grow one inch. But I really do love yours :) Oh, and I am following you now too :)

  14. I always obsess about getting my hair cut. I've been thinking about chopping my hair for a while now, and yours is so cute, maybe it'll give me the courage to just do it!

  16. I LOVE IT! You look adorable.

    I took the plunge and got the same haircut last year... did the same thing, going "it's a little short!" But I fell in love with it and I've gotten that style every time since. I like to let it grow out for a few months in between just to change it up a bit. (That's the cool thing about such a short cut- even after a few weeks you feel like it's completely different and SO long!)

    Sorry about your ring rash... I bet it feels so weird to go without your rings :(

  26. I recently chopped all my hair off after years and years of having super long hair and I hate it. I thought I would like it more once it started to grow back but I'm still hating it. Obviously my face isn't suited to short hair but yours definitely is. It looks so adorable!

  28. Super cute! :) You'll get used to being able to see your neck just in time for it to grow out :)

    I get the same ring rash when my hands get too dry (which usually comes around this time of year). I am without mine right now too :( It is a weird feeling for sure!

  29. You look gorgeous short or no! I love it!

    (And, I'm with you on the flats...I meant to say I wear blisters into the heels of my own feet. Not heels, as in shoes! Never! That's anti-teacher!)

  30. just found your adorable blog! I love your haircut!! I think it looks adorable but it does always take a little to get used to. I do the same thing where I let the stylist take control.

  31. OMG SO CUTE!!!!!! I went for something similar in the spring and if you decide to grow it out, you will love how well it keeps it's shape when it grows. This is ADORABLE on you!!!! It really makes your eyes pop even in that little bathroom photo! I'm definitely a cut my hair on a whim girl, too.. And I also love your color... I kinda wanna go darker for winter but my stylist sometimes takes me too dark for my liking.
