The Long And The Short Of It.

Long.


Short.


Liberating!

I woke up yesterday with a sudden urge to cut my hair, and so I did! (Well, I didn't actually take the scissors and do it myself... I went and had it cut!) It's just what I wanted, no muss, no fuss and a little bit boyish!

My long hair was 1 inch shy of being the required 10" length to donate to Locks of Love, but fortunately Patene now has its own program called Beautiful Lengths and will except hair donations 8" and longer, as long as the hair meets all of their other requirements, which mine does! So, as soon as my still wet ponytail, (which is lying on my work table) dries, I will be shipping her off to hopefully do some good. Please click on the highlighted links for more information about this very worthy cause.

Good for you! I donated 11-inches to Pantene earlier in the year.

It looks adorable! Great job!

Mine is getting pretty long right now... I definitely see a chop-it-off impulse in my future...

You look beautiful...and very happy! Good for you. I've been pretty bored with my hair recently as well...not sure what I'll do just yet.

It looks great! So care free, and you look so cute!

I wanted to go a bit shorter than I did yesterday, but my cutter was sort of insistent at leaving it about jaw length. Maybe next time... I flip flop a lot between wanting long or short hair.

A very brave move, but a very worthwhile one! The cut looks great & really suits you! So cute! I'd love to have short hair but it just so doesn't suit me. Even when I have a slight trim I feel the need to wear a hat for the first month or so after.

I love it - very cute! I've always had short hair. I've tried to let it grow, but never get very far.

Cute, cute, cute! Hacking off hair is very liberating and change is great. You look fabulous, enjoy the new 'do!

That haircut looks really nice. It really suits your face well! Nice cut for showing off your earrings too!

picciolo said...

Beautiful Victoria! I love it, I don't think you could have gotten a more perfect haircut! :D

After reading your last post and seeing your gorgeous new haircut, a thought comes to mind...now you've got an excuse to go shopping for the neck scarves that are all the rage now! :)

totally cute - I think it does make you look younger!
Its liberating to chop your locks once in a while - I always give myself a haircut over the bathroom sink - maybe I should see a pro!

So adorable! I've been hankering to do the same thing. My hair, my agony.

mayaluna said...

What a fun way to meet you! I cut off and donated my waist length hair three years ago and have never looked back. I'm still loving it short and I hope you will too. You look lovely

Miss Frugality said...

Wow! It really suits you.I'd like to pluck up courage and do the same.

I LOVE it! I cut mine off a few ago and am so happy about still. Yours looks great! That is really fantastic that you are donating the rest - how cool.
