Before & After // A Much Needed Haircut

This past Saturday, I did something I haven't done in about 3 years.  I got a haircut!  I've neglected going to a salon for a number of silly reasons...but mostly because I'm always nervous going to salons.  I've never really found a place that I love, and I've been known to go for long periods of time between cuts, but never this long.  I can be stupid shy at times, but I think this takes the cake for sure.  I was so nervous before going in, but everyone was so incredibly sweet and my hairdresser understood exactly what I wanted, and I love my new hair cut so much!

Before, my hair was usually a super tangled mess of voluminous bun on the top of my head.  My routine was to wash it once every 4 to 6 days (more often than that would totally kill it), dry it with the help of my diffuser (thus creating tangles galore), and throw it up in a bun on the top of my head.  I had absolutely no desire or patience to do anything more with it than that.  It was so heavy, I shed like crazy because of the tangles, and it was sooooooo hot.  I can't begin to explain how hot and heavy it felt.  It was miserable.

My hairdresser was amazing.  She suggested thinning out the back a bit to remove some of the bulk and the asymmetrical length is exactly what I wanted.  I love the shaved sides too.  I feel like this haircut is totally ME and I love it so much :)  I can't believe I went so long with hair I didn't feel comfortable in!  I'm excited to go back in for regular appointments now!

What's the longest amount of time you've gone without a haircut?
