Chop, Chop

Well, I went a little crazy at SuperCuts yesterday. I wouldn't have even thought about it if Theresa wasn't cutting my hair. First, here's how I have had my hair for a while now...

(and a little picture of the sleeping cutie pie...he's outgrown that outfit already. Please disregard the double chin...that's what I get for bending my head down for a picture!)

Anyway, we talked about how I wanted it trimmed and she verified the length again because she didn't want it to be too short.

I love to get my hair cut and if I have enough hair, I sometimes like to do something drastic. I told her that too short wasn't a possibility because I've thought about a cute little pixie cut for a long time, I just wasn't sure how the two giant cow licks I have in the back of my head would react to hair that short. Theresa thought that it would be just adorable and the cow licks would help to spike the hair back there.

So, I asked her how short she would go and she showed me.

Go for it!! It'll grow out, right? That's my theory on hair cuts.

For those of you playing at home, here's what my hair looks like now...








It's a tad on the funky side, but I think it'll look better after my hair gets used to its new style. It was super fast to fix this morning, though! And let me tell you, those cow licks are crazy. The hair back there is sticking straight up without the assistance of gel or anything. I just need to use gel to get the rest of it to spike.

The back's a little shorter than I would have liked, but that'll grow out, too.

I absolutely love it! I would love to have short hair, but my hair is too thick, too full, and has too many waves. I would look like a really dorky "mop head."

I would say you do indeed have shorter hair! :) I would love to see a picture of the back. All that spikeness! Looks a bit darker too...

Overall I give it two baby thumbs up! With a double bonus for the cool hip mommie factor tossed in. :)
