A Matter That Should Be at the Highest Importance to Every American: My Hair.

So I cut my hair. And before you click away and scoff at me for dedicating an entire blog post to my hair, just hear me out. 

My new haircut. I love it!


About once every other year, I cut my hair dramatically short because I get so tired of it. It gets so long, and it's so damaged because I'm too broke lazy to go to the salon once every few months like normal people. I usually save dramatic hair cutting for when something important is going on in my life like the start of summer getting a new job or something equally life-changing, but this time, I just kind of did it on a whim. I've been needing a cut for a million years now, and I stumbled upon this girl who had the most adorable swing bob, and she had a round face like me, and I thought, "Could I pull this off?" I was freaking out the whole drive to the salon, and my sister was cheering me on. The lady who did my hair could tell I was nervous, but she assured me that the style was going to look great on me. 

I went to Destiny Day Spa, and my hairdresser was such a sweetheart. Usually when I walk into hair salons, they take one look at my hair and then eyeball each other to see which sucker is going to get stuck with my mane, but I didn't get that vibe here. Granted, there was only one person on duty, but she wasn't intimidated by the tangled mop on my head.

I've officially found my new favorite hair salon. 


I wish I could tell you how many inches of hair I lost, but I have no idea. In some places 10, in other places more, but since it's a swing bob and cut into layers, it's pretty hard to tell. I can say that I feel like there's a huge weight off my shoulders. My hair was starting to weigh me down, and with the combination of all of hair she cut off and the thinning she did, my hair feels so awesome and healthy.

Nervous before the cut

With all the clips she had to use, I felt like I was in Zenon


One random funny thing that happened there: She was sweeping up my hair...

Can't believe all of that was on my head


and she tried to sweep it into this nifty vacuum thing, but it ended up getting stopped up because it was too much hair at once. Oops. 

Before the styling. This is what I have to look forward to post-showering


I really love how my hair turned out. It feels great, and I think the cut makes me look a little older. Instead of being 16, maybe people will think I'm a college freshman. Little do they know I'll be a quarter of a century this year. Yikes.


The finished product


P.S. I made sure not to take a mirror selfie with my new haircut, because last time I did, someone took my picture off of Twitter and this happened:



What do y'all think?

  2. I go through these phases too...and each time I regret cutting it off and pretend it's the last time. But I love that fresh new hair feeling of a good cut. It sounds like you had a great experience at the spa and your hair looks super cute!

  3. I think it's adorable! I go through the long hair-chop-short hair-regrowth cycle every few years, too, and I've always wanted to get some super trendy, sassy hair. I'm just so scared of how it will look! Your trust in your hair stylist totally paid off because the new 'do looks great! :)

  8. It looks great! Similar to how I'm hoping to cut my hair this weekend. Long, swingy bobs are the best.

  9. Thank you! Even though it was a pretty rash decision, I'm so happy I did it! We'll be hair twins!

  10. Change is usually good, and I love how it turned out. And I know! I was so surprised. A lot of random people kept coming up to me at school, and I was like "what the heck?" But now I just laugh at it. At least it's not something too inappropriate.

  11. Thank you! I liked my long hair too, but it was so damaged. I normally would have gone for just a trim, but I decided to be dramatic.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Thanks so much! And I know - I found out from other people who randomly saw it on the internet. At first I just didn't understand, but now I just laugh at it. I'm just relieved it wasn't something super inappropriate.

  13. It's good to know I'm not the only one who goes through hair cycles. This is my first trendy haircut, and I'm in love with it. It's hard to find people who can handle all of my hair, but this girl was fabulous!

  14. I agree! The feeling of a fresh cut is the best. Thanks so much!

  15. Thank you! I love how it turned out. And I actually got that dress on sale at Target for $6!

  16. Ooh. Very cute!! OMG you have so much hair.. I would probably go crazy trying to manage that daily. I barely want to deal with mine. lol

  18. I love the cut. It looks great. Reminds me that I am in desperate need of a trim. :)

  19. What a great way to end the summer, a super trendy cut. It looks so good on you.

  20. I love it! Haircuts on a whim seem to always come out the best because you don't overthink it. You definitely rock it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Loving the new hair cut! I always want to do something drastic, but I have to keep my hair long enough to throw up in a bun/ponytail!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Cute hair! Your hair is gorgeous!!!

  23. You know it's that Filipino blood. You'll look like you're in high school until you hit your 50s, then it's all downhill from there. hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  24. It looks great on you! So fun and light looking! Definitely suits you :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks so much! I think it suits me too.

  26. Right?! It's a blessing and a curse. I was just in New Orleans and got carded twice in the same bar. The second time, I was like "I'm already in here and I'm holding a drink. Give me a break!"

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks so much! I love how it turned out.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can officially no longer put my hair in a ponytail. I tried and it fell after about half an hour. Already feeling the struggle. I still love it though!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Exactly! I second what you said. This is by far my favorite haircut I've ever gotten, and I think it's because it was on a whim. Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I agree! Definitely a perfect way to end the summer.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you! I'm so bad about getting regular trims. Oops.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you! It's definitely super thick. I get tired of it so easily. It's already easier to manage short. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes! Everyone compliments my hair and tells me not to cut it, but that's only because they don't have to deal with it on a daily basis haha. It's much easier to manage now, but it's still thick.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This looks amazing-- such a great length on you!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thank you! I think it turned out awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thank you! I love how it turned out!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love the new hair! I thought it looked different in the ice bucket challenge video but hadn't caught up on my blog reading yet!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thank you! I love love love it! I feel like it suits me and makes me look much older and more mature. But then I start talking and people realize that I'm not older and not mature haha.
