Scissor Happy

If you read my last post you will know that I made the drastic decision in having a major style change with my hair! After booking the appointment I've had nightmares of it going completely wrong, and even nearly canceling it, although my sister and boyfriend were instant that I went for it (they are mainly responsible for me going through with it, and I'm glad I did!) Being an indecisive person in general really doesn't help when it comes to having a whole new haircut! I was getting so nervous this afternoon, as I knew a good few inches were going to be cut off. It was something I really wanted, but when you've had long hair for so long it kind of becomes a security blanket! 
I explained to the hairdresser exactly what I wanted, and just thought 'well, there's no going back now!'. She cut inches off slowly which I appreciated so she didn't snip it all off at once, but I kept telling her, shorter, shorter, if I'm going to do this I'll do it properly! It took hardly any time surprisingly to snip off the majority and add a few layers, then I got it blow dried and straightened. I hardly ever have my hair done by professionals so it was nice to be pampered, just a shame I'm not doing anything tonight but sitting in front of the telly! Here are some piccies!

Before/ After
Please excuse the state of my hair before hand, I left it and had to brush it out, and my face, I look very miserable..


I had some maaaajor length off, and cut off all the dip dye. I cannot tell you how happy I am with it! I don't usually like my hair straight but with this cut I really like it. I can't wait to play about with it over the next few days, and seeing what it looks like naturally and when I curl it. I think it looks alot trendier than my huge mane which was getting out of control. It feels so much lighter on my head too, it's very weird, and it's really soft as all the dead dry ends have been banished. I feel so grown up that I have a sophisticated new haircut before I turn 21 in August, and a summer full of big plans. 

What do you think guys?!

    1. Thank you! I found after I'd had long hair for about a year I just got bored, you only live once, hair will grow back! :) xx

  2. I absolutely love it! It suits you incredibly well and so healthy and thick. I've been playing with the idea of cutting a good bit of my hair too, though it'll probably take me quite a while to persuade myself into actually doing it. ;-)
