i have always loved long hair, but have long loved change even more. i’ve been known to impulsively chop my hair off, dye it blonde, or even give it an at-home perm (in high school) without having a second thought. it’s safe to say that i do not hold too much value in keeping things at status quo. that said, this time around i have been rather hesitant to take the plunge and chop it off. call it my quarter life crisis, but for some reason, this time the decision seem different; final. i always thought i’d keep my hair shorter once i have children (no rationale behind this, just my assumption) and chopping it off at the stage of life seems like a step in that direction. but no. this post is not an announcement of any kind. recently, though, i have been inspired by some of my favorite bloggers who have opted to cut their hair–molly, julia, naomi and emily all look amazing with their new do’s and i can’t help but think of the styling time saver it must be to take those inches off. so here i am trying to decide if i should chop it off or not. i do know one thing, though, thanks to mary’s post about braids–if i do cut my hair, i will be heading to dear clark to get the job done (and maybe get a lovely braid after the fact). what do you think? do you have a tried and true style, or do you switch it up? i’d love to know.
