I had my hair cut - about half of it off. Feel free to blame my sister Sarah. She planted the idea in my head that I would look really good with a layered hairstyle, and that it'd really help my curls.
A shot of the before:
No, my head isn't crooked or anything, my hair grows crookedly. I typically have a 4 inch discrepancy every year. My left side always grows longer. (Don't forget that you're looking at a mirror image, so in the picture, it's the right side that's longer.) I could pull that section straight and it was about an inch away from my waist.
Not any more! :)
A real mess of curls now. It was kinda funny though, when she was done cutting my hair, she asked if I wanted her to curl it, or to straighten it. I opted to have it straightened, because my hair is never truly straight. Sarah's the exact same way, except that hers never curls! So hair cuts are the rare times we get what's exactly the opposite of our natural hair styles. :)
And of course, I couldn't end this post without a front shot too.
I think I'll be maintaining a shorter length from now on. I wanted my hair to my waist so much for so long, but it doesn't fit ME. Styling gets frustrating, my hair gets frizzy when it's long because it wants to curl, but has too much weight.
I think next time I'll get to cut right above my shoulder. I feel daring! I haven't had hair that short in 20 years. :D
