There's nothing more liberating then getting your hair cut. Ever since my dramatic chop from my long locks to a shoulder-length bob last June, I've honestly felt like a new person each time I leave the hairdresser. My head is instantly lighter and although I feel exposed at times, I see it as an opportunity to empower myself instead of relying on my long hair to hide both my physical 'imperfections' and personal 'insecurities'.  One could relate it to a snake shedding old skin, starting 'fresh' all over again. So far I have received divided opinions from others in their preference of long or short hair, but personally for me.... I'm gonna stick with short. I must admit though, I miss having mermaid hair when at the beach :(

Tell me, what do you like better? Long or short?....

On a different note, I'd like to thank you for the positive feedback on my last post! I really do appreciate it and I hope the effort both Kassandra and I undergo in producing each post shows. Stay tuned for more shoots later in the week. I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend filled with fun, festivities and food. I've gone a bit crazy on my Pinterest, if you're a fellow pinner be sure to let me know or re-pin if you like anything you see.

  1. I feel the same - I chopped my hair a month ago...and I love it!
    Guys prefer me with long locks, girls prefer the shorter style, which is weird ??? Haha.
    I'm defs gonna keep it short though it's so liberating!!

  2. short all the way- you look like such a powerful, determined woman in the shots above- ready to take on the world of fashion! xxx

  3. It's rare to find people who suit both long and short but seriously I think you quite do! Short hair does seem to make you appear a lot more fierce though haha :)

  4. I love your short hair, it's so sleek and stylish!
    I like my hair both short and long, so I usually go through cycles.
    Change is good :)
