Snip, Snip: New Hair

Believe it or not, I had been DYING for short hair. I was sick of the 4-6 hour air dry time. I was sick of the weight of it. And I was sick of being the girl with hair that could easily be used to impersonate Alanis Morissette's "Thank You" music video.

In all sincerity, my long hair felt like a crutch. I was too comfortable doing the same ole same ole to it day in and day out and was really starving for change. Never one to make life easy, I decided to force myself to get a little more creative and inspired in the hair department.

I wanted something I could style a bit more edgy for, what I like to think is, my increasily "edgy" wardrobe as I'm very much on a modern, mostly black, and Helmut Lang-esque kick. Just a few days in and I'm already loving the myraid of ways to style it -- cutesy, grungy, textured, polished... the options feel endless. Welllll, minus a bangs down look because I got bored and hacked at em a little last week... my mistake. Leave "bangs" to the professionals. Always. 

Exhibit A: The victim, pre-chop.

Exhibit B: The Crime Scene.
(I got it cut by Katie at Mirror & Mantel -- my go-to hair stylist/salon in Philly)

Exhibit C: THE CHOP!

It's been a good 5 years since I've had short hair and contrary to what everyone in my life anticipated, I'm really happy about the length and being able to let it grow out again, enjoying each length along the way.

If you're thinking about taking the plunge, do it! Now! Chop chop! (and that, my friend, is what we call "hair humor")
