I had a love/hate relationship with my long hair. Most of the time I loved how it looked, but I HATED washing it. HATED it. I only washed it once every 3-4 days anyway, but I literally dreaded my wash days like the plague. So, I decided (while washing my hair) that it was time for a cut. If you’ve been following me for more than a year, you know my hair has usually been short, it had only been long since I moved to Austin a little more than a year ago. And I feel like shorter hair suits me better – it has more body when it’s short, and it’s just easier to maintain. For me anyway.

It’s not much shorter, but it feels so much better. And she added more layers around my face, so it looks shorter I think. I honestly don’t really like it a lot right now (I never like my hair when it’s clean LOL) because it’s a little too “styled” for my taste, but I think tomorrow once I’ve slept on it and added some product, it’ll be more me. I really did want to go a bit shorter, but didn’t want a bob like I used to have, I wanted something much less structured, but I think this is a good length to play with for a little while; I can always cut more off later!
And I don’t like this dress now that I see a picture. I’ve never really liked it much; it’s too long on me, so I have to belt it and blouse it out, which changes the look. It’s a few years old and worn only a few times, so I think it’s time for it to go to the consignment store…
Finally, the obligatory Instagram picture:
