The Big Cut

I took the BIG step today and after much talking about it got my hair CUT! Before

After

Now that my hair is 20 inches shorter I feel like my head is a ton lighter and some cancer patient will have a wig of all that hair. I know now that I'll have to do the blow dry and curling iron thing but it feels so much better.

Bet it's a lot cooler for that hot Las Vegas weather, although I would love to be able to get my hair to grow as long as yours was.

Congratulations, Rene. It is a wonderful, wonderful thing you have done, providing hair for a wih for a cancer patient. You have no idea what it does for a person's self-esteem to get that wig. The cut looks fantastic from the back. I am sure you look even better from the front, as well. Wanda in Edmonton

Congratulations on your 'new do'! I've been contemplating the same thing but...no guts. You look like a totally different person, I think..from the back. LOL

Join the cut club! :) You have half way there. :) So short short is your next step.

I'm loving the freedom from the blow dryer/curling iron cylce I was on for so many years.

Looks great. Enjoy playing with it :)

One of my friends had hair past her knees. She got it cut to about the same length as yours and when she stood up from the cutting chair she fell over :) (weight to no weight).
