My New Look

Here it is! I took the plunge and went collarbone length. This is the new cut air-dried with my natural wave. (And some help from Pureology Nourishing Nectar Sculpting Gel. I love this new product, and I don’t even have colored hair! Wavy girls, get thee some ASAP!!)

Now, I won’t lie. I was shakin’ in my boots last night.

Tera starting cutting the back, and when she stepped away for a second, I took a photo of the floor behind me.

I may or may not have had a small “moment” at that point.

I know, I know. It’s just hair! But I’ve had really long hair for a REALLY LONG time, so it’s become somewhat of a security blanket for me.

Goodbye, security blanket! After cutting, drying, flat-ironing and texturizing, I left the salon with a fresh look.

It’s going to take a little while to get used to (so long, topknot), but I love that I can wear it both straight and wavy for a completely different vibe. Hooray for new hair!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Dude, you look as lovely as ever! I was expecting a hack job of a houselady cut (i.e., mom jeans for your head), but this is really, really nice and it especially suits you natural wave. I predict you’ll love it in no time.

    oh pretty pretty lady!

    the length you now have it at will become my new goal. i chopped mine last year thanks to your short mena suvari post you did. i’ve loved it but i’m growing it back out.

    i’m a curly gal like yourself, and have a TON of hair… so your precious pic will become my inspiration to keep me from going to my stylist and crying for the scissors.

    looks like you could use a celebratory cocktail.

    Looks great! I just cut 8+ inches & donated to the pantene project you highlighted recently. I was sweating while she was cutting & I’m still a little tramatized about it but as you said – it is only hair.
