I made it a full year–actually 13 months–and have been meaning to get a post up about it for the last, oh, four weeks or so.
Here’s me and my bob, back in the hotel we lived in last summer:
You’ve seen countless photos along the way, including this January progress report, and below is a shot of perhaps my favorite longer-hair style, the pigtail braids:
Here I am today, all dressed up for a presentation I gave in class:
It’s SO LONG!
And then, later this afternoon, this happened:
Yup, I chopped it. In all honesty, I’ve been missing my shorter style and realizing (just as I do EVERY time I attempt to grow it out), that all I end up doing with my hair is pull it back into a ponytail. And I can’t stop twirling it–especially with all the stress I’m experiencing–and I couldn’t take the breakage anymore.
Combine all that with a DESPERATE need for a trim (my last was in July!), and you get one tangled mess each morning in the shower. So, I called the salon for their first available, which happened to be this afternoon. On my way over, I googled “Julia Stiles Haircuts” and showed this to my stylist, Karen. I don’t know what it is, but that girl–Julia, not Karen–and I can rock the same bob like no ones’ business. Works every time.
And, viola! New style:
Man, it’s good to be back 🙂
