I was nervous about getting it cut--mostly because I didn't want my neck and back so exposed. When I told a good friend of my "neck-a-phobia" she informed me that I have a beautiful neck and no back fat. We joked that I have such thick hair that they'd be able to make two wigs with my donation--ha, ha! Ah, friends....
Here I am before. My hair looks scraggly
in this picture but it's just wind-tossed.
Here is the after! She cut off about 14-15" total.
First, she sectioned off 12"
for the donation to "Locks of Love."
I love this style! It's an inverted bob with way-textured ends. Fun, fun, fun! I think I'll wear it this way for a while. I will grow it out and donate again in the future, though--but I'm in no rush.
AND---what does my family think of it? 2 of my 4 kids' first words, upon seeing me, "Mom, you look weird." Another said, "I don't like it." And the other (and now my new favorite child), "Wow--you look like a rock star!" And the mister? "Wow," (but not in a "I LOVE YOUR HAIR" kind of tone).
Oh well...I like it and that's all that matters to me!!!
