what also happened yesterday...

I flipped the coin, and this is what I got: short and blonde.

Jason made me cut it myself, actually. "If we're taking that much off, you're starting it," he said. Then he made me put it into pigtails, handed me his super sharp stylist scissors, and said: "Okay, go." I slide the shears around the thick bands of hair and chopped them off, left side first, then right. It was really satisfying, actually, like cutting through two thick, yellow ropes.

I'm still getting used to it. I'm surprised every time I look in the mirror. I love it and I can't believe I stalked this haircut for a year before actually going for it. Every few hours I feel a pang of sadness and loss for my long blonde hair. But there's something incredibly liberating about this new look.

An exciting new phase for the Undercover Blonde. How will I fare with short blonde hair? I'm pretty sure it will be different. Check back for updates!

The short is nice.

I am still stalking a bob, that sort of angled one, longer in the front, but as I had the finest, straightest, most body-free hair of all time, I am terrified that I will look like the Little Dutch Boy, like I did last time I chopped me hair when I was 12. But yours looks great!

Thanks for the support, guys!

TWG, find a great stylist and go for it! I realized the other day that I had this same haircut when I was 18. Trust me, it did NOT look the same. A lot can be accomplished with a curling iron and a bottle of hairspray (said the Jersey girl) :)
