Yes, after much debate and self-reflection, I chopped my hair off. About 12 inches to be exact. Only took me about a year to get enough guts to do it -- but if you know me, that's about par for the course.
My hairdresser, Deb, over at Devil's Hairhouse in the Mission (SF ladies and gents, I highly recommend this gal -- she knows her stuff!) was completely patient with me as I pulled up about 20 inspiration photos from my Pinterest folders. My top contenders were Arizona Muse and Alexa Chung on the shorter, more layered side and Vogue's Sylvana Ward Durret on the longer, blunter side. As you can see, we leaned more toward the shorter version, because it put me right over the mark to donate my hair, which I've always wanted to do.
While I'm still in a bit of scissor shock, I think it's starting to grow on me! Plus, I'm starting to see the beauty of earrings and strapless dresses in a whole new light. Isn't it amazing how hair can literally transform how you feel in certain accessories and necklines?
