One Foot!

I've been building up my nerve to do it for months, and have finally done it: I chopped a foot of my hair off! I had planned for only 8 inches, because that's all that Pantene requires to make a wig, but when I went in and got to measuring, for the cut I wanted, I had a whole foot of hair that I was able to lose. I've been asking some friends here in Jax who they go to, but was very scared to go to someone who I didn't know and let them go whacking at my hair, but then I heard that a friend of mine from high school was working at the Belk Salon near our house. So I built my nerve up (with a little encouragement from Shannon, who recently had 11 inches of her long, gorgeous locks cut off) and made the appointment and am soo glad that I did!

BEFORE... what a mess! I was so excited to be blow-drying and straightening it at that length for the last time this morning!


AFTER... I love it! No regrets at all!

(Unrelated sidenote: The shirt I'm wearing makes it look like I already have a huge baby belly, but it's just the cut of the shirt. I promise I'm not that big already!)

If anyone is in need of a new stylist in the Jacksonville area, I highly recommend Apryl at the Belk Salon in the Avenue's Mall (904) 363-7375. If you tell them I referred you, you'll get 20% off your first cut (and I'll get 20% off my next one!).
