Hello new 'do...
I don't think people believed me.
Now, my husband was a bit concerned. I've had some issues with damaged hair for quite some time now and I went natural (no relaxer, i.e. chemicals to straighten my hair) exactly two years ago (Aug 2011) thinking that would solve those issues with breakage. But it didn't. I ended up having to wear my hair in the style you see below practically everyday to hide the damage! Might as well go back to what you know. Hence, the "relaxed" look above.
Before Look (no relaxer) | My Mommy
Before I left the house for the cut yesterday my husband gave me a little talk in regards to his fears about me getting a relaxer and especially about me going short. It was cute and sweet but I assured him it would be just fine. You see, for as long as I can remember my mom always, always, ALWAYS wore her hair short. Being that I am an exact 'replica' of my mom (seriously folks, it's scary but I love it - see above), I already knew that a short look would look cu-ute on me!
Now, before you go all Beyonce' on me (check out her short 'do here), she was NOT my inspiration although I really love her cut. It puts me in the mind of Charlize Theron's pixie cut, which I adore. But no, I took the following pictures with me to the salon for inspiration...
I wasn't attempting to look like them at all actually (that's silly), I just wanted the stylist to know that I wanted it short, short in the back with a little something in the front. They all look so different yet fierce and gorgeous...exactly how this cut has made me feel. And please note, this was my first time going to this salon, Practicality Hair and Day Spa, but I knew they'd be on point since they style my bestie, Mionna's hair regularly.
And boy didn't they deliver!!!
30s...here I come!!! I've definitely been enjoying my life as a wife, mom and homemaker and I've just got a feeling that my best years are still yet to come and quite frankly, I think they're right around the corner!
Are you feeling my new 'do, too?!?
