New Year of Life, New Haircut

Yeah, that title was anticlimactic…
Anyway, my birthday is on the 28th and I have been wanting a new haircut for a while.  I’m not someone who is willing to spend a good part of an hour (or more) on her hair, so curling, flatironing, and hairspraying are all things I will never do and have never (under normal circumstances) done.  This makes having longish, thick, wavy-almost-curly hair a bit of a hassle.  My mom and I had been talking about getting a new haircut for me, like thinning it or getting layers, something to tame the mane, if you’re picking up what I’m throwing down, for a while now.  I’m also going to camp (for the first time) in a couple weeks so we had a deadline because I do not want to worry about my hair while I’m up there. The problem with my hair, is that simply cutting it short makes it balloon out and my head resembles a fuzzy mushroom. *shudder*  But, I loved having short hair.  The problem was getting my hair to cooperate with my dreams.  Today, that happened.  It was more expensive than I expected, but my parents like how it turned out too, so we certainly got our money’s worth.

I’m guessing that you want to see a picture, right?  Fine, if I have to show off the miracle of not-hopeless hair. πŸ™‚

Here’s the before… I was actually having a good hair day, surprisingly.

And then the after!!! πŸ˜€ 

It’s a little wild right now, but I love it!!!  It’s so light, but manageable! Wheeee! And it’s tomboyish but still feminine; everything I wanted.  I’m so happy!  Here’s to a new me, even before I’m 16! (Ooh, that rhymes)

  1. Love your new cut. I just cut mine recently too. Munchkin is still not on board but I love the freedom and a bit of change is always good. Have fun at camp. ☺

    1. Thank you! Yeah, I don’t think little ones understand the joys of short hair. I had a little girl from our church ask me, “What happened to your pretty hair?” Hehe, I had to explain that I wanted it that way. πŸ™‚ Thank you, I’m sure I will have fun!
      Happy Sunday and hugs!

  2. Hi Squid,
    I didn’t know if you’d get my response to your last comment on our blog so I thought I’d leave it here as well.

    I do appreciate your courage and honesty regarding your comment and I’ve discussed with B that it may be helpful to add a disclaimer to the sensitive posts so you and others like you don’t need to see things you don’t want to. He writes other amazing posts like lyrics and lovely poetry and I’d hate for you to miss out on other great content just because of one category.

    We will make the changes to add a disclaimer to all those pieces. It may take us a while but we do hope you’ll reconsider. And if you don’t we completely respect your decision.

    I’ll still follow you if that’s OK. But if you rather I didn’t then that ok too. I’ll really miss having you around.

    Your bravery and honesty are extremely admirable. Best wishes always and many Hugs. 🌷

    1. I did see it, and I think that that will work out! So, I’m back! πŸ™‚ Thank you so much to both of you for being willing to do this.
      Many hugs to you too!
