The Big Chop

Here it is guys! I finally got pretty much half of my hair cut off!

For a while now I've been wanting to do something bold and big - I have had long hair for as long as I can remember and I thought it was about time I'd get the big chop! I panicked a little while I was sitting in the hairdresser's chair and even more when she was able to clutch at least 20cm of my "just cut" hair in her hands. It feels so much lighter and I guess looks healthier too!

I also got a colour done - What do you think people?!!? Good, bad? Or prefer my long hair instead??...

Either way, I'm stuck with this new hair do - and to tell you the truth, I'm enjoying the change so far! It's my birthday this coming Wednesday so I guess this is a small gesture to welcome another new year and chapter to my life :)

  16. Its so chic and the fact that you seem to have straight hair would make it so much more manageable for you.

    Love
