There is a First Time For Everything

New year, new me...right? Well that was the plan at least! For a while now I have been wanting to cut my hair super short. I have had it all kinds of length, but it had been since I was in like first grade that it was super short.

Some friends were for it, some were against it. I figured I might as well go ahead and try it, and worse case scenario it grows out in a month or so.

Just so you know I have just about NEVER cried over my hair. It always works out in the end. Well yesterday after my haircut, I cried over my hair for the first time ever!

I don't know if it was the shock of it being so short, the fact that the girl who cuts my hair never styles it right, or that I really hated it. But I cried. I told my mom (who has even shorter hair) that I felt like I looked like a brother Benjamin to be exact!

After freaking out I went to my bathroom and tried to style it right. It has grown on me some, but it is still a shock every time I look in the mirror. It's not exactly the cut I wanted, but it will do. I feel like I do not look as girly as I use to...or at least not like myself.

I'm thinking I am going to have to hit up Youtube for some tutorials on how to style it to make it look more me! Bows, braids, and bobby pins are going to be my best friends for a while!

I actually really love your hair!! And I think it's AWESOME that you went out on a limb and tried something new! I totally know what you mean about not feeling as feminine. I love my new hair, it feels like a fresh change. But I definitely notice myself not feeling as confident at times, since I feel like my long hair was kind of my security blanket. But you know what, it's humbling for me!

Ha anywho, enough ramble. You look great! And that's the point!! :)

I think it's really cute but I do understand what you mean but not feeling as much like a girl. Every time I cut mine short it makes me feel masculine for some reason.
