Metamorphosis Monday: New Hair!!

Hey y'all! So I am still on vacation out in California... and besides sewing, I haven't been creating anything new. BUT! I did undergo a transformation... so I guess that kind of qualifies me to participate in Metamorphosis Monday. :)

I have been debating whether I should cut my hair or leave it long for quite some time. Well, I made my decision... without further ado, my metamorphosis!

Here is my before... somewhat long hair. Mind you, it was windy. OK, breezy really. Now you can see why I wanted to cut it off... no style, totally blah. ;)





I have had my eye on "The Pob"... The Posh Bob (I feel so "in" that I know it is called that... even though I only found out a few days ago. haha Yeah... I obviously live in a cave.)
Here is my inspiration:


I wanted something A Line-ish... and something relatively easy to maintain and style. So off to Mary (my hairstylist) I went. :)


And there is no turning back now! Yes, as a matter of fact I was terrified!


Styling my new short hair!

And here it is! My before and after shot:

I really like it. Very easy to style... takes me 10 minutes to blow dry instead of the 30 minutes with long hair. So far I have gotten that it resembles Katie Holmes and "a flapper" but no Pob. haha That's ok...I'll take what I can get. ;)

So there it is. My transformation. Hope it inspires you to make the change you have been contemplating doing forever... whatever that may be. The anticipation is the scary part... doing it is nothing. ;) For other great transformations, check out Between Naps on the Porch. Susan graciously hosts Metamorphosis Monday every week... so we all can enjoy the "befores and afters" in blogland. :)

The "Pob" how cute is that? And how cute are you?! My hairstylist is trying to do that to me and I keep saying NO... Its too short and too young for me. I totally admire your bravery from that long to that short. You look so adorable! Its a great look for you cause you are so young! I bet you feel lighter too... You had a lotta long thick hair! Your beautiful! Great Met Monday post!

Cute cut!!! That must have been so scary to cut off that much, but you did the right thing, it looks much better and now you have that polished and sassy prairie girl look:) and it'll be much cooler for summer too!

Thanks for sharing!
Sherri
P.S. I think I'm about ready for a short, easy care cut myself!

What a great haircut, it really flatters your pretty face now too!

Kim @ Manning Family Tree said...

You new cut is too cute!!! You look great with the shorter doo. I've been wanting to get my hair cut off as well, but not that short. My hair is wayyyy to long now & gets in the way of everything. I just need to be brave & do it. Great metamorphosis!
