I Finally Cut My Hair

Posted 03-2-2012 at 10:40 AM by whitneywalters

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!

    Congrats mama… I’m not quite as brave as you and have yet to take the plunge myself, but it looks beautiful!

    You are beautiful! Great cut! When you don’t want to straighten it use some gel or mouse on your hair and dry it with a diffuser. If it seems too unmanageable have your stylist add some layers.

    I just chopped mine off too! It was down past my shoulder blades and I cut about 12 inches off. Its an A-line cut now. Buzzed in the back neck area and slopes down from the back of my head. I love it. Takes me 5 mins to blow dry every other day :)
