Makes My Monday: New Haircut for Mom
Since my mom got diagnosed with cancer and I found out she may have to have chemotherapy, I started thinking about cutting my hair. I had been growing my hair out for about a year and a half and it went from being pixie short at my wedding, which it had been that way for years to growing it out to my shoulders. I started thinking that I could cut my hair short in support of my mom, who will most likely be losing her hair from the chemo that she starts this week. I made the decision to go short and got my haircut Saturday. I had some concerns about wether or not I really wanted to continue growing my hair or if I wanted to cut it. I had asked people on facebook, I asked my husband, and most importantly I did some soul searching about what I wanted (wow the soul searching sounds so crazy, but after putting the time into growing my hair, I didn't want to do something that I would regret), I decided that I really want to cut my hair. I made an appointment and brought a picture of how I wanted my hair. The funny part is that I brought a picture of what my hair looked like prior to growing my hair out and when I showed the picture to the hairdresser, she asked if I had ever had my hair that short before. My hair is now as short as it was 1 1/2 years ago and I am so happy that I did it. My husband who played Switzerland when I asked his opinion on cutting my hair, finally admitted that he likes my hair short. Now, I just need to make time to maintain my haircut.
