the Big Chop

I did it. Well, on February 7th I did it.
I chopped my hair, and I love it. Surprisingly, it looks much longer to me in this picture (taken this morning by my lovely co-worker Tracy) than it does in "real life". But, I got over 5 inches cut off! It is cut a little like Gwyneth's, where it is longer in the front than in back. It's just a little longer.
I decided to go with the slightly longer version for a couple reasons. First, it would be a little less drastic. And second, I can still pull it all back in a ponytail easily, which is nice to be able to do when you wash your face, go workout, run to the grocery store on a Saturday morning, etc.


So far, so good. I like it, it's easier to blow-dry in the mornings (although it looked much fuller and better before I left the house and got to work!).

I love it! And it's inspiration to me to get mine done too, I've been umming and aahing for a while now about getting it done. And seeing how good it looks might just persuade me :)

You look so cute with your new hair cut. I wish my hair would lay that nice.

I love the A-line look on you! I wanted to get my hair chopped after my wedding as well. I need to find somebody who can give me a cut like that.

Welcome to the post-wedding-chop club! It looks lovely! I got a longish bob, which is not even a bob anymore so I'm back for shorter, funkier, more more more! Enjoy!
