It's All Gone!

I've been meaning to post about my haircut for a bit, just didn't have the pictures. I've had long hair for a few years now... the last time I had really short hair was in 2003. Actually since I've known my husband, I've had long hair. He was a little sad to see it all go, but he likes it (like he had a choice :) ). Well, it had gotten to the point where I needed a haircut, but then I thought, "Hey, if I grow it out a little longer, I can donate it!" So I waited a little longer, then a little longer, until it was reeeaaally long. To the point where I couldn't WAIT to get it cut. I don't have any good before pictures...

But, here's a before, not the best picture but you can see how long it was:

Then I got it CUT! Here are my self portraits:

This is from the same day

This is today, I know it looks like I'm gonna attack you, but really, I'm not.
I've decided to donate to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. It was hilarious when my hair dresser cut the ponytail, then plopped it onto the counter. How much you ask, was cut off? 12 inches!!!! Can you believe it? I feel very light and am totally loving the new 'do, it's really easy to maintain and I think I look younger - which is PLUS now that I am of the 30+ set. :)
Just wanted to share! :)

Love the new look, Deb! I'm working on a donation, too - I SERIOUSLY need a change. Is Pantene's length 8 inches? I think I probably have that - but I don't think I can make it to 12 inches w/o driving myself insane! ;)

jenn, Pantene's length is 8 in... I only did 12 cuz I didn't realize how long it had gotten - LOL :)

I love the haircut--fabulous! I've been growing mine out for a couple of years and am planning on donating it in December. I haven't heard of the Pantene program so I'm going to have to check that out.
