A New Do- Beautiful Lengths

It's officially summer. It's time to shed the school-year, relax, and re-energize!

So, for weeks or months now I have been talking about getting my hair cut. Today was the day! I knew it was time because yesterday it kept beating me on the back while I was running!

Here is the picture of me from last night:

Yep, it's long, thick and heavy! It was basically a blanket of hair and it did keep me warm this winter.

But, it was time for a change. I wasn't sure what the change should be though. I researched pictures and found some that I liked, but I was going to be relying on the stylist for some help.

Me this morning, unsure of what I was really going to do...

What I DID know was that I was going to be giving my hair away to someone who needed it and so a good chunk of it would be donated.

So, drum roll please!

There are the four ponytails we were able to get out of my head, due to the layers we missed some hair. I didn't have the 10 inches to give to Locks of Love, so I am donating it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which makes wigs for cancer patients as well. They accept 8 inches and I have a bit more than 9 inches in each of these elastic bands.

And here's the final product!

It will take some time to get used to and no pony tails for me for a while. Eek! But it feels so light and wispy! It was time for a load off :)

Hello Summer!


  1. AHHH! I LOVE IT! I'm literally ON THE FLOOR! You look GORGEOUS (as always, but in a different way). Way to go!

    p.s. I almost wrote something about the cancer patients being lucky, and then I realized how wrong that is. However, your gorgeous locks will bring joy during such a difficult time.

  2. Beautiful! I don't think your hair has been this short since before you started walking! I can't wait to see it!

  3. Could I have your old hair? ;-)
    I LOVE the new do. You look regal!

  4. Both your dad and your uncle think you look very Swiss!!! I wrote that I think you look elegant. Can't wait to see you...
