Locks of Love - Round Two

Welp, I went and did it!  I was feeling nervous at first - two years is a long time to let your hair grow out, just to go chop it off in one swoop.  But it was time, and I'm so happy I did!  This is the second time I've done this now (I hear it takes 10 ponytails to make one wig!!)  I highly recommend everyone try it at least once, if you're able, because it's such a neat experience!

Even my brother, Evan, is growing his hair out so he can donate to locks of love!  How cool is that!?

So here's my hair-cutting adventure in pictures:
its final hour...

eek!  Trying to imagine it all gone!

and from the back (but my head's tilted, so the length is a bit exaggerated)...

"Are you positive?" she asks.  "Uh...yes!" I reply.

a close-up...doesn't it make you cringe a little?

12" all gone!  (Little ad for Great Clips here, huh?  I had a coupon for $6.99!)

new do.  i told her to do whatever's "in" lately...I'm livin' on the wild side!


the end.
