Making the Cut

Well, today was the day - I cut 8+ inches of my hair off to donate to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths campaign. They use the hair to make wigs to give to women with cancer. I knew I'd cut my hair the day I found out my mom had cancer, but I had to wait for it to be long enough (and I wanted Melanie to take our picture in case short hair didn't suit me).

So here are the before pics:

the afters!


I have since gone running and taken a shower, so it will never be that well-styled again! I love how fast I can take a shower now -- it's crazy!

she won't get a wig from me - it takes 6 ponytails to make one wig - but some woman, somewhere, will get a wig made from my hair. :)

It's so CUTE! Do you feel better about it now that you got to style it yourself? It looks GREAT! Have you been running your fingers through it all night long, or what? AGH! I love it.
