If you follow me on insta you may already know that I got a little hair cut.
I had a lot of people that were shocked that I was so brave and congratulating me for it which makes me feel somewhat fraudulent so I thought I’d take a chance to explain…
Once upon a time I had hair that went down to my mid to lower back, it was healthy and shiny and black.
I got restless and decided to go blonde in one (or rather two) days. It was really fun at first but my impatience eventually landed me with what I call a “chemical haircut” that’s when you damage your hair so bad that it literally breaks off.
Since then I wear clip ins (laced hair are my favorite!) so often that some people thought my hair was still long but it really wasn’t much past my shoulders.
I decided to try to get back to my natural color again (this time not going crazy with the blonde, just light brown & by using impeccable patience I was lacking last time!) but I still had to cut the damaged parts off in order to start that process.
Am I out of my mind? Probably, but it’s just hair right? I gotta let the natural color breath at some point before it goes gray!
(this was after the first process of lightening my hair, we waited 6 weeks and lightened it again very subtly!)
So sorry for the long story that probably no one cares about, I just wanted to clarify. I do like a change and I am really loving some of the cute short haircuts I’ve been seeing lately but I’m still a long hair addict at heart and you better believe I will be growing this mop ferociously from now on:) but the silver lining is that I’ll be able to learn new ways of styling this length and of course share my findings!
So in other words…I’m not that brave, just a little crazy in the hair department. And I’m sure other departments too, like the Organized Packing Department or the Keeping my Car Clean Department.
This was the first time in probably 2 months that I got makeup and non-pajama clothing on so Jessica and I figured it was worth photographing!
You can’t see a bump yet here (it was a month ago, now there is definitely a bump).
I really loved this outfit because it was so comfortable and flattering and the shirt totally covered up the fact that I couldn’t button my jeans.
