The long and the short of it...

Since I've been a child, I've been fascinated by long hair....started growing my hair when I was 7 yrs old and never looked back. My hair was as much a part of me as an arm or a leg. that's why it was such a shock to everyone (including me) when I decided to cut it. 

A part of me was quite scared about letting go of my 'identity', my 'uniqueness'. What if I didn't look nice any more, what if people didn't recognize me, what if I rly regretted it?

Well, I made the leap around 6 months back and have never been happier. It's made my life so much easier - takes no time to wash or comb, am no longer constantly running out of conditioner, the chronic pain in my neck (due to the weight of the hair) has disappeared, and I love the way I look.

As one friend put it - "earlier, we only saw the hair, now we rly see you"....

The final cut

Have a hair cut apptment on the 25th...let's see what I go in for this time....


  1. Oh, it's a gorgeous cut! I love it. I had really long hair as a kid but got it cut gradually shorter. Senior year in college, I went really short and never went back! I love being able to just come out of the shower, add a bit of gel, and air dry (especially now) - can't imagine spending hours on hair care.

    Hope you are enjoying your new freedom! It looks great!
