Chopping Off My Hair for Locks of Love

A couple of weeks ago, I decided it was time for a change.  My hair had gotten too long for me to manage. I struggled with what to do next: do I go big and chop it off or go with what I know?

My answer came to me while I was shamelessly looking at pictures of celebrities trying to decide whose hairstyle I could reasonably ATTEMPT to emulate.  My top choices for inspiration - Julianne Hough and Jennifer Lawrence. I am perfectly jealous of these blonde beauties' perfectly tousled lobs. 

So I decided to go for the BIG CHOP.  I'd trim so much that I had enough to donate to Locks of Love. My pony-tail of hair came in measuring just under a foot! 


With the help of my trusted hairdresser, Courntey Davies (she's amazing - check out her page here), we created a stylish long bob.

I'm still learning how to style it myself, but maybe in time, I'll more closely resemble my inspiration photos.
