Bucket List Cross Off

I'm not going to lie I deliberated for weeks and weeks, going back and forth as to whether I should take this leap with my hair. I kept seeing these adorable pictures of long bobs and I just fell in love. Then when we watched The Terminal with Catherine Zeta Jones I just knew that was what I wanted to do. Super cute, with some length but still fun and moving.

As I walked into the hair salon for my appointment with my cute hairstylist that I've gone to since I was in Junior High I seriously contemplated running back to my car and zooming away. But I kept looking at pictures I had saved to show Alayshia and I talked myself back into it.

I sat in the chair and in the moment of truth once she started cutting I got this sinking feeling in my gut. But when I looked up after she did the first pass I knew I was going to love it! And as she trimmed it, shaped it, layered and styled it with every step I grew to love it more and more. This is definitely going in my hall-of-fame hairstyles and nobody can say I didn't try out short hair! Who knows, it may even stay for a while.

And my result:

Excuse the Iphone photo

Look at that massive pile of hair! It's just crazy to me how light and alive my hair now feels without that extra 6+ inches weighing it down! It feels so wonderful I can't stop running my hands through it. I'm not sure I'll keep it short like this but we will see. You never know, I may just be hooked!
