I've wanted to donate to locks of love for several months now and have thought about it and thought about it and looked at several different styles. A few weeks ago I made an appointment with my beautician. I finally got the courage to do to have over 10 inches cut. My beautician Amanda did a great job. I will admit however that it doesn't actually look like what I wanted. It is much shorter and more of an A-Line, which I didn't really want. The good thing is in a few weeks to months it will grow out and look the way I actually wanted it to look. Amanda asked me if I wanted it textured and I didn't, because it was short enough, but really it does need some texturing and a little thinning so it doesn't look so much like a football helmet. I really love not sitting back on my hair any more or having to move my hair after replacing my stethoscope. It is so quick and easy to do, but I do admit I miss my long ponytail. Short ponytails just don't do it for me, but at least I can still pull it back into one.
It is fitting that I decided to cut my hair the day after my family received word that my Grandpa Swensen was diagnosed with metastatic cancer, even though he doesn't need my hair....
