I have always had long hair. Always. So, this is the first time I have ever done something so drastic. This was also the first time I have ever been to the hairdressers... I've always been a home dye kinda gal.
I genuinely love the change. It makes me feel more grown-up and sophisticated but also kind of, dare I say it, cool... I also decided to send my hair off to the Little Princess Trust which is something that you should definitely look into if you are considering chopping your hair!
My hair was down to my bum (very technical measurements there!) and the roots were so long I could almost disguise them as an intentional ombre! My new hair is a lilac/ grey toned ash blonde and is cut to just above my shoulders.
The other amazing this that has come from this new hair has been a 'New Me' attitude. I have never been one for 'New Year, New Me' at the beginning of a year but this new hair has inspired me to change in a positive way. I have been clearing out my clutter (which really, really needed done). This may not sound like much but for me it really is a big deal.
