Well, I did it. My hair is gone.
I’ve been contemplating cutting my hair and donating to Locks of Love for several months now and I decided to go ahead and do it. For those of you who are not familiar with Locks of Love and haven’t clicked the link yet, they are a nonprofit organization that takes donated hair and makes wigs for children who have lost their hair due to things like chemo therapy.
So Kyle and I decided to drive down to Ohio for the week for hair cuts and to relax a bit before starting back at school in a couple of weeks. I got it cut today and will be sending off my hair to Lakeworth, FL for a little kid in need of some hair (I sure had plenty of it). I like my new haircut but it will take some getting used to. At least I’ll be saving money on shampoo and conditioner now, and if I decide that I don’t like it after all, I can always grow it back out again.
Here’s what it looked like before:
And here’s how it looks now:
I’ve put more pictures up in the gallery.

I was thinking the other day about doing that.. the locks of love part, not the short part! It looks good on you, though.
It does grow back…
I chopped my hair chin length when I was 16 and I hated having it that short
I have to say, after 2 days of looking at her, I do think she’s prettier with her hair this length. 🙂
You’d think she was prettier if her hair grew down to her knees — it’s hardly an objective opinion. However, it does look good.
*faints* It looks beautiful, but I wasn’t sure you’d actually do it!
Kyle isn’t in the role of “husband” because of his objectivity. I think as a spouse, you are (and should stay) a bit biased toward your other self.
We want pictures! I am sure the remaining locks look great!
Gee, I was hoping to find a picture with you bald! I was going to congratulate you on joining me in shaving your head.
I’m *so* disappointed!

I’ll put up more pics when my camera decides not to be stupid…ultimately, I need a new camera.
Wow, it sure is different. I think it looks nice.
