Mid-Week Inspiration: My New Haircut!

I am a little hesitant about this post as I don't write about myself that often on this blog. I am also hesitant about posting pictures of myself up without wearing a trace of make-up. Since I have injured my right hand, I haven't been able to use my normal staples of liquid eyeliner and mascara. It's been 2 months now and I still can't open my favorite lip gloss! Not only has make-up become a chore, but so did taking care of my waist length hair. (You can see a before photo in this older post, taken a week and a half before my accident.) Unable to tame the developing rat's nest I took the plunge and had cut off about 10"-12" of my hair! The photo above, from January Vogue, was my inspiration. Of course my hair is not platinum blonde. It is not stripped of all it's pigment and therefore does not have the texture of the photo I brought to my stylist. So I have a silkier version of that cut, and I like it! Have a look!
My long locks shown here were donated to Locks of Love!


So there it is and I have to tell you it is so much easier for me to deal with, with my one hand. I am looking forward to this spring so when my right hand is back in use I can play with it more-please pray! Pin-curls? That will be fun!

That's a really hot hairdo. I can see lots of possibilities/looks, including edgy and more chic looks. You must feel lighter and freer with the locks chopped (I always love that feeling when I go shorter). Thanks for sharing the pics!

Such a cute haircut- much more chic!

It's not easy getting rid of *that much hair* and you did AND donated it! You are a hair inspiration! (You're hairspiration?) I'm so proud of you!

The new look is going to be so right for many vintage look's...My hair's around the same length...And make up...If I was as pretty as you I'd wear less!

You look amazing with your haircut! You actually remind me A LOT of Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders. I donated my hair to Locks of Love a couple of years ago also. It was one of the best feel-good things ever! Congrats!

Yea for you! Love the hair~ I did the same last year. It grows back and I love the fact that my haircut helps someone. Plus a big change is always fun. Congrats.

Lovin' your haircut, too (and you look very pretty makeupless)- I remember being terrified when I did the Locks of Love thing, and it was the best haircut ever. Karma, I think. :)

You're beautiful! And congrats on the hairdo...I've never cut my hair--too chicken.
