A Hurricane Inspired Haircut
Hello friends! After being off the grid for several days, we finally had power restored on Friday. One exciting outcome of Hurricane Sandy was that it inspired me to get a haircut! Random, you say? Yes, but let me explain. Far from the devastation that ravaged New York and New Jersey, here in PA we just had the minor inconveniences of no electricity and heat. We bundled up in many layers, cooked food on the gas grill outside, and used flashlights and Yankee Candles for light. But no electricity also meant cold showers. You’d think that my hostel stays this year would have prepared me for the experience, but it was still unpleasant! The one thing I couldn’t bear to do though, was wash my hair… it was just too cold! So by Thursday I thought it might be time for a trip to the salon for a wash and cut. I was long overdue for a haircut since my last one was before my trip. And when my hair gets this long, I just get the urge to chop it all off!
I ended up with quite a drastic haircut – almost ten inches cut off! As I have in the past, I donated my hair. There are several options available for hair donation if you’re interested (see below). I didn’t get a good shot of the front, but here’s one from my weekend in DC – that post is coming up next!
Love the cut, K! What a great thing to do! You look fab AND you did a good deed. Props.
Thanks J! When your hair starts resembling a Halloween wig, you know it’s time for a cut 😉
you’re loco! i feel a tear coming…
haha, I was waiting for your reaction! But no tears… loving it so far 🙂
First thing I thought when i saw that pic of you with the scissors was “NOOOOOO!!” But alas the cut is cute, so carry on!
haha thanks Jodi. And trust me, I left the cutting to the professionals!
That’s awesome you donated your hair! I’ve been thinking of doing that especially after a random trip to Seattle (and days w/o a good hair washing).. hadn’t heard of Wigs For Kids, glad I read your post!
Glad that you found the information useful! I donated to Pantene, but they all seem to be reputable organizations.
Oh wow.. good job!! glad u have power back
Thank you! It’s hard to believe that there are still so many people without power… praying it gets restored soon, especially since it’s supposed to snow tomorrow night.
Thanks for liking my Thanksgiving post Kavi- Namaste!
You’re welcome 🙂
