Hair Yesterday...Gone Now...

I`ve been meaning to cut my hair for a while, but I always put it off, because I feel so comfortable with having long hair. It`s sort of like a security blanket for me.
In some ways, long hair is easier for me to manage, because if my hair is misbehaving, I can just throw it up into a high ponytail and smooth away the flyaways and be done with it.
With short hair, I think you actually have to put thought into how messy it looks and how the strays could be pointing in different directions.
Anyways, here are a couple pictures of the before. My hair may look a little stringy, because it was still a little damp after having showered. Long hair, oh how I miss thee...
Usually with lengthy hair, I just trim it myself, since it`s so easy to place it all right in front of me. But, I felt it was time to cut it off and donate it.
I had asked the hair stylist to measure 10 inches and cut into a ponytail. But it looks like she took off more like 12, according to the ruler. Plus, once she actually started cutting my hair and getting all scissor happy, it was like I had gotten a 14 inch haircut. Oh well...what`s done is done.
Here is the after...
Pardon the blank stare and washed out picture. I just used my webcam and plus it was the end of the day and I was very tired.

This is actually the 3rd time I`ve donated my hair. First time was Locks of Love, then Pink Heart Funds, and most recently to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

I`m typically very lazy when it comes to my hair. I`ll leave it be until it gets very long and I`ll want to do something different with it. I think that I don`t want it all to go to waste, so I should donate it. Plus I don`t want to throw it all away, because I think I`m pretty lucky that I don`t really get split ends and it grows quite healthily. I still get that feeling of `oh my gosh, what did I just do? I feel so unfeminine without all my hair` every time.

This was the last time I donated my hair. Also about 12 inches...perhaps a little longer on account of it being sort of wavy in the picture.
Lol, my facial expression is like that, because that was probably the day I had gotten the haircut and was not over the shock of having newly short hair.
Back to the present...I think I`ll try to get used to my short hair. Hopefully I`ll be inspired to try new hairstyles that I couldn`t do with my heavy, overwhelming amount of long hair.
