The New Look!!

So, I have been playing around with the idea of cutting my hair for some time now. I loved having long hair! It was just so fun...but...having long hair in the hot months is terrible! Your neck is always sweaty, my curls were constantly attracting static (which drove me nuts), and I couldn't just jump up in the morning and go! I talked to Scott about it a lot and even asked him if he would still love me with short hair. He would hesitate before answering and say, "Yes...but I really like your long hair." For those that know me really well, once I make my mind up, I go for it 100% and will think about it constantly until it happens. So, Monday comes and I am so excited all day for the new do. I wasnt going to tell anyone, but I started getting excited and just couldnt hold it in. I went to my friend's Hair Dresser and she was awesome! I decided that I was going to donate my hair to Locks of Love (and no...that isnt the reason I cut my hair, I wish it was so I would feel like a giving person) so she put my hair in a pony tail and chop, chop, chop! My head automatically felt 10 pounds lighter (I exaggerate) and I pretty much looked like a little school girl with my curls bouncing everywhere. So, I love my new style. And yes, the curls will still be in my life (for those that were wondering), I just happend to keep it straight for today!

Lindsay, it looks GREAT! I love it! You're so brave to cut it that short, it terrifies me to cut my hair after it's been long for a long time. What does Scott think?

Lindsay said...

He really likes it. Scott was pleasantly suprised when he walked in the door because he didnt think that he would like it!

Great cut! I bet it will be super nice with the curls, too. Great timing for the summer...enjoy!

Linds...cute hair. I loved your hair short and curly! And I think it's funny that you say it takes longer to do when long and curly. I love summer for the reason that it's not cold outside...so I can just jump out of the shower and go without having to dry my hair...it just curls up and I'm good!!! It's the straightening that takes me forever!!!

Lindsay, your hair looks way cute. And that is cool that you decided to donate it. I have donated mine twice now and still want to do it at least one more time. This is Allison Jenkins by the way.

Lindsay, I love the new haircut. Very stylish and professional looking. A woman and 2 girls in our ward donated their hair to Lock of Love. A worthy cause, even if it was an afterthought. Way to go.
