New Haircut

Around February of this year my hair went from being at the small of my back to just under my ears (that nice block of hair was sent down to Florida for Locks of Love). It stayed that length until, well, today. Going 9 weeks between haircuts when it's short and has a propensity for growing more than the normal half-inch a month is not a good thing. Plus, when I don't have the humidity to hold my natural curl, I end of with something that looks like hat head at the end of the day; flat on top and curly on the bottom. Very strange. And ugly. So I straightened it on Wednesday for the first time since I cut it and people at work went ZOMG! I liked it too but it needed to go chop chop. I wanted something punky but within the realm of the ability to wear it to work (they're pretty liberal, but not that liberal). And this is what I came up with . . .


My step-mother says it's very Pat Benatar (which I actually agree with) -

It's also my first foray into fringe. I've never had it before. What do you think?

That is so true (about what your stepmother said)!!! That's pretty neat :P I love it though. Very stylish.

Donna, Look how cute you are!! You do not look like I imagined (not sure what I imagined). You should post a long hair pic. I like the cut, will it be high maintenance?

Almost forgot, I like the Lost Boys pic in the background.

LOVE it! That's an awesome look for you! It really suits your face and it's such a great style. I would love to wear mine like that. I'm curious to see a photo with your long hair too.

Good for you for donating your hair. I would do that too if I ever let mine get that long. That's such an important gift to give. My cousin used it and it meant a lot to her. Happy holidays Pat Benatar!

Donna, you look terrific! Not only chic, but your eyes look so large and really pretty - the new short style really suits you!!!

I bet it's a relief not to have to care for super long hair for a while. My daughter, too, had hair nearly down to the hips then grew tired of it so she opted for a much shorter cut in her early teens. Way easier! lol

Donna said...

Why thank you, everyone! You're all too kind! :) If you want to see me with long hair and then what it was cut to originally, just go to my archive, under February there's a post titled Locks of Love. I have some pictures there.
