Pulling the Trigger
Well, I did it. About 3 years ago, I made up my mind that once in my life I wanted donate my hair to Locks of Love. I’ve been waiting for the right time to pull the trigger. I have enjoyed my long hair a lot but over the past month or so, I just knew it was that oh so critical time. So, yesterday I made an appointment for this evening and then I fretted this day away.
Dan met me at the salon for moral support. The initial cut wasn’t too bad. In fact, after she cut off 10 inches, I was pretty excited. It wasn’t too short and it felt great ( I have a lot of hair and it was HEAVY!). After she washed it and started actually styling it, I sort of went into regret mode. In addition to the already missing 10 inches, she cut an inch to two inches off for some of the layers. YIKES!
Overall, it is shorter than I wanted but I think I like the cut. I don’t like the way she styled/dried it-poofy and sticks out in funny ways. This is going to take some getting used to for sure but it was worth it. I already made a stop at Target for new hair clips for the sweeping bangs dilemma!
When we got home, I don’t think Quattro recognized me.
