Out with the old…

This past Friday I woke up and felt like I needed a change.

David and I are leaving for Paris soon (I know, right?!), and I wanted to do something exciting before we leave.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I dislike long hair. At least, on me. I often have my hair in a pony tail or braid with a headband securely in place (see picture on left). Other times I just can’t be bothered to do anything with it and it looks like the picture on the right.

Crazy HairOkay, so the picture on the right was actually taken after a pretty awesome nap. But you get the point.

And so, after looking at dozens of pictures of Anne Hathaway and other lovely ladies with short hair, I decided to get a pixie cut.

First, please look at this grotesque pile of hair before my beauteous new look (can you tell I love my new do?)


Granted I had my hair taken down from its braid before this picture was taken, so it doesn’t always look this ragged. Well, it actually does. But that’s why I chopped it all off!

I also can’t help but notice my very egg-shaped head in the top two pictures.

But now for my new hairstyle!

Pixie Cut

Two thumbs up for pixie cuts! I may never go back… just don’t tell my husband.


PS: I got my hair cut by Nicky at Natural Solutions in the Hillcrest Mall in Richmond Hill. Amazing hairdresser! She was the best.
