And Then I Cut It

I’ve worn my hair long for most of my life. At this point it’s a major trait of my personality. I don’t care what people sometimes say about long hair making women look older, I like the way my long hair looks and feels.

I must admit it’s been getting on my nerves a bit lately. The ends are kind of ratty, and I have to stand up in order to brush it out. It’s gone from being a personality quirk to being a major inconvenience.

It’s pretty damned long:


It’s making me crazy:


I’d been thinking idly about cutting a goodly amount of it off, and then last Monday I zipped a big hunk of it into my jeans. Yeah, that’ll wake you up for sure, lemme tell ya.

Enough already; obviously the universe was trying to tell me something. I called my salon on Tuesday, and to my great shock they actually had an opening on Friday.

So I had eighteen inches of hair cut off:


My hair is still long:


But I bet it doesn’t give me headaches anymore.


I had this done of Friday, 23 May. The commenter who accurately guesses which day my husband finally notices that I cut off eighteen inches of hair will receive a bag of chocolates and some random sock yarn from my stash.

Good luck!

Anree!!!!! Holy MOLY!!! It looks fabulous, by the way! So pretty.

I'm guessing he'll notice, um -- this is hard not knowing your schedule -- Uh ... 5/27 ... 8 am-ish.

Anna said...

Looks great!!! And I'm sure you won't regret it when you've realized what a relief it is for your head not having to carry all that hair along.

My guess is for Friday 30th as nobody else has guessed that. I do hope he notices sooner though! :)

I have a new guess: Never


Lia said...

It looks gorgeous, Anree! I'll bet it feels so bouncy now with all that weight gone. (And I'll bet your head and neck appreciate it!)

Let's see...hubby will notice...the next time you get nekkid. Don't have a date for that, just a situation :)

The cut looks fantastic - you have such beautiful hair! I'm amazed at how long it took Joey to notice! ;)
