About that hair cut

The before:

(This picture belongs in a frame. I am so in love with this girl)

The After(s)
Henry and I assumed this position for the duration of "signing time" this afternoon. He took his precious time waking up from his nap.I didn't mind being his support system.

Friday night the Blaser's had us over for a 'camp fire' (as Eliza would say). Michelle made pizza, placed it in a cast iron thinger (description courtesy of Andrew) and then popped it in the fire to bake. The kids enjoyed the play ground as I talked "hair makeovers" with my lady friends.
For someone who is as emotionally high strung as me, I thought I'd feel more of a shock as I watched my hair fall to the ground. Clearly, this cut was over due. I felt pure excitement. My hair is incredibly thick and the weight of it often left me with a headache (hence the braids). The heat and humidity made the blanket of hair incredibly burdensome. Thus, my decision to bid farewell to my long thick locks was rather easy.

How often do you make it to a hair salon? The last time I had a trim was February (awful, I know!). Is that, like, totally disgusting?

I went a whole 13 months without getting a trim from before I had Mia until I moved back to SLC. Now THAT is disgusting, but February doesn't seem too long ago. Your hair, by the way, is ADORABLE! I am not lying, that hair cut was made for you! YOu look great!

I love you Savanna. Just so you know.

I love the braids but I totally understand the reason to chop of your long locks! I cut mine off last summer when we were in Georgia. Your new cut is so cute! I don't remember the last time I was in a salon for myself, it has been a long time!!!

Thanks for posting the picture...and I agree I think the short do is totally flattering for you!! And I bet it is so much easier to do and lighter (I get those same headaches when I wear my hair up too!!) And as far as last february having a trim...you are like my hero! I go 8 weeks and feel like I need a trim or new color...or something else to change things up!! (At least you don't have grey's to cover up...)

Ali! You look so beautiful! I think you are brave to cut the hair. I think about it all of the time but never can quite work up the courage to do it. Anyway you look great! I love reading your blog, thanks for keeping it up!

I love it! And, to be honest, I'm not even sure that the last time I got mine cut was in 2009. I sure hope it was :)

Ca-YUTE hair! You know me, I'm all in favor of every mom in the free world getting regular haircuts. Short hair rocks. Plus, it's more fun than therapy. You look adorable.

To jump on the bandwagon, I love the cut too! It really goes well with your face shape. I'd go forever between cuts when I had longer hair but since I've started wearing it shorter I've got to go more often. The mother/daughter pictures is adorable. Gotta love that with shopping at Sam's Club our boys seem to have a lot of matching clothes. I love the cuddle times after naps. Those are the only times Zach will sit still. And now I'll end my novel I'm writing you.

Your hair looks great! I love it!

Michelle said...

I really love your hair but it seems everyone has overlooked the adorable picture of Eliza and Talon. Oh my gosh, how cute. I love it!!! Will you email it to me right now?

SO cute! I for some reason seem to be on a pattern of growing my hair out after having a baby...usually because I'm too lazy to do anything...and then when they're about 1 I chop it off. And yes...I have gone that entire time without trimming it before.

Ali!!! Hey I found you through another blog and was so happy to catch up a little and see how happy you are! Cute hair cut by the way! Let's keep in better touch! Sure love you! Our blog is camitaylorw8.blogspot.com

I agree with the others, totally adorable hair cut on you. I get mine cut about every 3-4 months, but my hair is what kind people call "fine"... which means thin and stringy, so I need it cut often so it doesn't look terrible. Sounds like you have what I covet, beautiful thick hair, just cut it when it needs it!
