Hair is such a struggle for me. If you knew me in 11th and 12th grade, you had the displeasure of seeing my hair in probably every color of the rainbow from bright orange to black. In 10th grade I had dreamy "boob length" hair as I like to call it, and then chopped it off with a horrible haircut that I gave myself on impulse one teenage night in my bathroom.
Post high school, I haven't dyed my hair since October of 2009 (insert pure natural hair color fist pump here), and I've been pretty good over the years about growing it out. It was my desire for the longest time to get back to that 10th grade "boob length" hair, but as you can imagine, all the hair dying that I did, caused a huge portion of my hair to fall out in the summer of 09' and my hair has just not been the same ever since. (Although having children is really helping that by leaps and bounds!) Up until last week, my hair was the longest it's ever been in a long time. But since my hair is so thin, keeping it long often meant that unless I just washed it that day, it looked stringy and weird.
I've been playing with the idea of getting an a-line bob for a couple years now, and when I saw this picture on Pinterest Sunday night (thanks, Eva), I was smitten and knew that I just had to do it. I mean I already had a hair cut appointment the next day anyways. A girl I go to church with has done my hair twice now and as long as I live in NC I will officially always go to her! When she made the first snip she said, "WOW, this is a lot of hair!" I almost had a mini heart attack when I saw the huge pile of hair on her kitchen floor but when I looked in the mirror I had no regrets! I'm thinking of starting a new hashtag trend on instagram of #shorthairdontcare because I'm sure I'll never be able to post a #longhairdontcare at this rate.
