Toss your cares and curls away ...

Last week when I was sick I made a decision. My hair was bugging me. It was in my face. I didn't want to put it up because I couldn't lay down on it very well. I didn't want to wash it because it takes forever to dry. So I decided it was time to chop it off.

At first I told Julie that I wanted it to my shoulders so she put it back in a pony tail. Just before she was about to chop it off, I said wait - lets measure it. I pulled up the locks of love website on my phone to be sure I had enough hair and that it qualified. We were at 9 inches so I told her to take off more to be sure.

The braid ended up being 11 inches.

After the braid was cut I still had some some other layers.

It was a great change and while I didn't really have curls to toss away, I do feel a bit more care free.

Hi Katy,

I've been reading your blog for a while now. I'm compelled by this post to finally comment because I love your new hair style.

It's sassy and fun.

I just had to tell you so.
