6 inches later

Okay, for like the longest time, I have needed to do something with my hair.... and I have known it. I am terrible and get my hair trimmed like once a year, not like every 6 weeks like a good girl should. So, this last week, I broke down and cut my hair....6 inches of it. I had been wanting to grow it long enough to donate to a wigs for cancer place, but hadn't done any research, so I just cut it. Mostly I finally did it because a girl I visit teach is in hairstyling school and I trust her.... so here is the evidence. One afternoon Collin and I braved it...and the best thing is, it only cost me $3.00...and I still like my hair.
Before the cut
Before the cut from the back...yes, my hair is still totally wet from the shower that morning.

6 inches down
Collin and I after the haircut and she straightened my hair professionally. Collin was so good by the way. He was FASCINATED by Sharli (my friend, and she is cute of course), so he just stared at her the whole time. I'm actually wondering if he was disturbed seeing a lot of hair being cut off from my head.
Back
This is a TOTALLY terrible picture I tried to take of myself wearing my hair curly....and once again, I realized just how red my hair is....maybe another time I will be brave and go and get highlights from Sharli :)
Anyways, I must have lost at least 10 pounds with my hair, but it's still long enough to pull back in a ponytail and I was brave and cut some bangs. Go me!
