In April, 2012, I decided to grow my hair long enough to donate to Locks of Love. This is in honor of my goddaughter's daughter.
Katelyn, now 11, is a five-year survivor of two bouts of childhood cancer. Read about Katelyn's fundraiser for Alex's Lemonade stand here.
Well, fourteen months later, today was the day to get all that hair chopped off.
It has been years, maybe even decades, since my hair was this long.
It was definitely time for it to go!
I know the photographs are a bit frightening, but even Pic Monkey could not improve the way I look!
Here is my very best impression of Cousin Itt.
You know, the Addams Family.
At Studio M my stylist, Jeri Hunt, measured and deemed the hair long enough and proceeded to divide it into two pigtails.
(As long as I have been going to her, I have never noticed those giant lips!)
ACCCCK! Two pigtails whacked right off!
No turning back now.
Then the hair was whisked into an envelope.
As you have noticed I do not wear make-up except for a little blush and Chapstick. After seeing these photos, maybe I should invest in some make-up. This length is about where I started. I rather like the short swing of my hair. It will be a lot easier to wash, dry, and style now. I did receive a couple of compliments from people and kisses from both Willie and Scout, the dogs. Of course, Chucks wanted to know if I would be growing it back out.
What is it with men and long hair?
