that time I cut all my hair off…

12 March 2011

So that there is a big pile of my hair.  I decided that I was quite happy with my hair, and was fussing over it for a while.  So what better thing to do than chop it all off right?

And there’s the amazing result.  My friend Kari did a great job on it.

… And that was my Junior year of college.

I almost got that urge to cut it that short again.  I got a lot of compliments on it then — and my great aunt told me to never grow my hair out again.  But I also shocked a lot of my friends — most of whom didn’t even recognize me until they were close enough to make out facial features.  And really, when you’re constantly seeing photos of these absolutely gorgeous women, who could not want to rock short hair like they do?!

I mean. Seriously. Those women are beautiful, inside and out.  .. And then another equally beautiful woman went and put pink in her hair and looks fabulous… But well, the constant upkeep of pink hair is a bit much for me right now.

So, well.  I decided to just go for the haircut.  I’d be planning on growing my hair out a bit more.  A lot more.  But holy crap am I impatient.  And frankly, I don’t regret being so anyway.  So, prepare yourself to bask in the pretty…

Haircuts are amazing.  A new style can completely change you.   And this was exactly what I needed.

  • So cute!!! I love it on you. I chopped off 11″ of my hair in September (and donated it WOO!) and now I’m growing it out again.

      I would have totally donated my hair.. if I could have waited that long to grow it out!

      Thanks Lacey!!

  • CUTE!

    • Erini

      Thanks Doni!

  • You look so cute with short hair! I wish I had the guts to cut mine all off again, but it’s been like 7 years of growing it to this point so I’m just too chicken. *sigh*

    • Erini

      Thanks! I’m so envious! I could never wait that long. I couldn’t wait a few months! (Sadly, the “before” was the longest my hair has been since I was 21.) I always get twitchy when it hits my shoulders and I end up cutting it.

    i agree. you look very pretty, but the shorter haircut brings out the beauty in your face more. my wife let me cut her hair that short not to long ago. hope things are coming along to achieve your dream in june.

      Thanks Howie! Your support has meant a lot to me! 🙂

  • You’re totally rocking the short hair! I love it.

    And those glasses are super cute.

    • Erini

      aw thanks Deidre! 🙂

  • You look great with short hair my dear. Both pictures are adorable.

    I love short hair too but it doesn’t look as great on me. I chopped it all off January last year and my friends were found of calling me Tottie, like Facts of Life Tootie. -_-

    I’m growing it out again, obviously, but I’m getting the itch again. I’m trying though. I’m really trying.

      Aw, thanks Lor! 🙂

      I loved that pixie, but HOLYCRAP was the “growing out” phase TERRIBLE. Just had to suffer through months of awkward hair until it got to a length I could do anything about. I mean, I know it’s “just hair”… but a good hair cut/style can really change a person.

      Best of luck with yours! Waiting it out for it to grow is always the hardest part!

    Cute. Like!

    • Erini

      Thanks Jess!

    Donating hair is the stupid act! How many children do you save if you donate your hair? No one. Only Locks of love or other cheak organisation will earn money from selling hair of stupid women for extensions to vain women.

  • Becca

    You rocked the pixie! I’d say pixie it again 🙂
