Chopitty Chop

I always do this. I let my hair grow and grow, each time longer than before. Then one day I decide I want to chop it all off. I grew my hair out for my wedding (that was in February) and decided that it was too long for my fine hair. I don't know if its fine hair in general, or just mine, but the long hair would just sit flat on my head even if I put mousse in and blew dry my hair.

So one day I decided, enough, I wanted volume! I went in and chopped off a good 8 inches of hair, which eventually made its way to a good cause. I'm loving how much more volume my hair gets (and sometimes it can be a little too much haha). But then there are days like today when I am just not "feeling" it. I am contemplating on going to get a slightly different cut to take out some of the layers.


Please excuse the low quality iPhone picture.

One thing I don't like about getting my hair cut is the way they style it afterwards. They always want to flat iron my hair. I always have to ask them to just blow dry because my hair is already fine and straight, I don't need an iron to do it for me. Anyone else not like the way people style your hair after getting it cut?

This reminds me of the first pic I saw of you and I've decided the shorter hair looks best on you. It's really flattering on you.

Yes I never really like the way they style it afterwards. Sami from touch of red always gets it right though. Color, cut, style. The woman can do no wrong.

Oh I love it, looks great on you.

Yeah sometimes they overdo it when you just want it a bit natural.
