Sometimes a girl just needs a change. And what better way to do that than a fun new ‘do!
I knew I wanted something different, but the big chop was basically a game-time decision. For the third time, I donated my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which uses the hair to make wigs, which are then provided free of charge to women with cancer. The last time was almost exactly two years ago. This was my longest donation – 12 inches. That’s a foot of hair! Bonus for me, way less time to blow-dry my hair in the mornings!
Over the years my hair has been many different lengths and styles, but I haven’t cut it this short in a really long time (maybe college?). My awesome stylist, Sheena, and I decided on a medium length, inverted bob. Takes some getting used to when I look in the mirror! The truth is, I find it easy to hide behind my hair sometimes. It’s almost refreshing not to have that safety blanket. In a way it feels like a visual representation of other big life changes. Out with the old and in with the new!
