Snip, Snip

A few weeks ago, I cut my hair. If you follow me on Twitter you're well aware of the new change. I've been wanting to post the new cut, but wanted to show you a pic on how I style it day to day.

Here's the before and after at the salon:

We cut off 3+ inches, put some layers towards the bottom, and put in some low lights. I've also started wearing it parted down the center instead of on the side. I'm still getting used to that! It's so weird how such a little change can make such a big difference. I have a really bad cowlick and have worn my hair parted nearly my entire life (besides a short stint in the 4th grade). I have to part, blow dry, and pin it down right away everyday for the last 15 or more years. I still have to do that with my center part, and I'm still getting the hang of blow drying using my right hand instead of my left.

Ok, so here's a pic of it curled and parted in the center (I'm wearing a strapless robe, fyi):

I really like the change, I've gotten a lot of compliments that's it's chic and stylish. I'm still getting used to the middle part. So is my hair- I often find it trying to sneak back to the side. The part I love most about the new cut is how the layers in the front frame my face (I always curl my hair away from my face), I think it really thins my cheeks. 

I'm really glad I went for the cut, I sometimes miss my longer locks, but I really feel like I needed a change. Although I love long hair, I've always had a fondness for short hair and wore mine short all through high school and part of college. I can wear extensions any day right?


So there you have it. Have any of you changed your hair for the fall?
