12 inches gone...

I love my hair. It's the one part of me that I really like. Maybe that's self-centered but I have less than the ideal body for a 24 yr old. Seriously! Never had a flat stomach. I used to be called thunder thighs. And I've had birthin' hips since I was 13! But when I see my hair I really think it is beautiful. Ha! It's naturally curly so it takes a whopping 5 mins. to throw some gel in it and I'm ready to go! I have always wanted to donate my hair at some point in my life. I had been thinking about it and since I hadn't even trimmed it in 10 months I thought now would be a great time. I made the impulsive decision last Saturday. I got on the Locks of Love website and saw those cute little kids with their bald heads before and their wigs in the 'after' pictures. My heart melted. I closed my laptop, grabbed my keys, phone, and wallet and was off to find a salon. Since I usually just go to Great Clips for the 9.99 hair trim once every two years I figured I'd go a little more upscale. I ended up at Pink Mullet Salon in Franklin with a rockstar stylist. I didn't tell anyone I was doing it, not even my husband! So check out the before and after! I miss my hair but it'll grow back. And to think some little girl will have long blond wavy hair just makes me smile:)

Before Picture-this was taken a few months ago so it was actually longer then this.

It looks so cute! I love it. It's always a bittersweet feeling when you donate your hair. I know it's going to a good cause, but I still miss my hair when I get it chopped off. But your new 'do looks fabulous!
