And there you have it...

(this is what my hair looked like if I didn't blow dry or straighten it!)

Long, Side-swept bangs. Layers around face

Some scattered, choppy layers throughout.

I think that, going into this, I was hoping for something a bit more drastic and really different than something I would normally go with. But after flipping through a few books, I finally found one picture with a cut similar to this. Being as picky as I am about my hair and change, I thought that it was best for me to go with something not so drastic. I think that this is one of the very first times that I have actually liked my haircut right after. I usually have some kind of complaint and it takes a day or so for the new cut to finally grow on me before I decide that I like it. Today, I had a smile on my face the moment I saw it and I still do. Like I said, it's nothing drastic. It's not overly sexy, classy...etc. But I think it's me, and I think it works for me. So there you have it! :)

I haven't missed my long hair yet and I am actually enjoying the fact that my hair isn't so heavy now. I did dye my hair tonight as well (box dye, yuck, I know!) and let me tell you, it was SO much easier to wash/condition and fix than before. I also like the fact that my hair actually still has a nice amount of length to it. After all, the hubby loves longer hair. Gotta keep him satisfied too. ;)

I like it! :-) It's still pretty long, too. lol I can't see how you can stand it! Mine's the longest it's ever been, and I feel like I'm going to go nuts if I don't cut it off soon!! lol

I love it! My hair is about as long as your before pic and I'm thinking of chopping a few inches off. Get some weight off of my head!

Did you get the bag, my lovely?
