I have been going back and fourth about cutting my hair short for awhile now. In the couple years I have only trimmed the split ends. I have always had thick and wavy hair and my hair got thicker with each child. Unlike most of the moms I know it never got thinner after they were born, just got thicker during pregnant and stayed that way. So I have thick, wavy, wild and unmanageable hair. Usually I wore it in a pony tail or a bun. On the rare days that I did have time to do anything with it, it took forever.
The last time I had my hair cut shorter then my shoulders, I was a young teenager, back when I actually had time to style it everyday. Well being a busy mom of four young kids you can imagine that the last thing I have right now is spare time but I really wanted to do something different with my hair. I was so bored of the same hair do every single day. When I recently went to visit one of my best friends and while we were out clothes shopping for our kids she talked me into going and getting my hair cut.
I was not sure what I wanted so I just told the girl that I wanted it thinned, short, lots of layers, no bangs and long enough that I can get most of it back into a pony tail for when I was exercising. Then I just prayed I would like whatever she did. I am so glad I did. The results are great! I had her straighten for me and I love it! Even when I don’t take the time to straighten it still looks really nice and it makes me feel pretty again. I am really happy that I finally cut it, it was time for a change and I really think it is a change for the better!
