well i did it!  i cut my hair.  i was getting so sick of my layers & tired of having my hair end up in a frumpy ponytail by the end of the day.  i began telling chad i wanted to cut my hair & every time he'd object.  he loves long hair.  well, one day i came across my friend melissa's blog in which she had a before and after pic of her longer hair & short haircut.  i was sold!  i told chad right then, i'm 'cutting my hair'!  (melissa, if you're reading this, i hope you don't mind that i copied your haircut. :) flattery is the best compliment...and we don't live in the same state, so it's okay, right? haha)
i made my appointment with a stylist who i'd heard about two years ago.  i had really wanted to go see her...but i misplaced her card.  well, i recently came across it & thought now or never! (both with the stylist and the haircut)

and here's my lovely before and afters- courtesy of my iphone :)



ps- chad likes it. i don't think he'd object to me growing it out again...but for now he's okay with this.


  1. Oh my GOSH Michelle! I absolutely LOVE it! (Of course I would) However, I think the grass is always greener on the other side because you were MY inspiration for trying to grow my hair out! (I was too impatient) I LOVED your long hair! Of course I love it short too. You are just a beautiful person...inside AND out! Love ya!!! Thanks for the compliment :)

  2. Haha! While I was looking at this, Emily came in and said. "Whoa...that's freaky. She looks just like you from the back!" Made me laugh!!!

  3. I love it!! I am sitting here with my mom and sister cayla and brother Brandon and we all love it! So cute :)
