I'm thinking it's more aerodynamic.

I had my first hair appointment with a new stylist today. The women who read my blog will understand what this means~ it's like starting a relationship with a new boyfriend. You're interested in each other... you know you want to be together... but is the chemistry really there...? I had been seeing the same stylist for the last year and a half. The cuts and color were fine- I was simply ready for a change. I went to see (for you locals!) Judy Yazzie at Studio 505. She's SO fun to visit with & LOVES what she does. Her salon is very small & quaint and it was especially nice that today it was basically only the two of us in the place. I sat in her chair & said "it's a new year, a new body, a new stylist... I'm leaving it COMPLETELY up to you- color, cut, everything. If I don't like it, it'll grow."
Well, she CUT it! And I like it! It's outside of my comfort zone and I don't know if I'll maintain a cut this short HOWEVER it feels good to be sporting a style THIS short and to not be FREAKING OUT about it. If someone had cut my hair like this a year ago, I'd be shopping for long scarves to wrap around my 20 pounds of chin while I was thumbing through the yellow pages for an attorney. I'm definately going back to see Judy again in March & we'll see what the next appointment brings. I think she & I are going to be "going steady" for a while, long OR short hair-do.
And since I'm now a runner, don't I automatically need a haircut like this? Less wind resistance, right???

LOVE your comments! Thank you!! I just got off of the phone with my mother who said that after looking at the pics she's decided I look like a prison guard. With two small kids at home, I feeeeeellll like a prison guard at times but never wanted to LOOK like one! LOL!!!

Ha, I'm totally the "yellow pages for an attorney" type too. Glad to hear I may quit being such a freak about it sooner or later :)

And your hair cut is GREAT! I love it!

I love, love, LOVE your hair!!! I think that just may be my dream haircut. I love the swooping side bang and I love the stacked back.

Great cut!! It becomes you.

Love the look! I love the highlighting. I want to do that too! LOL

Major adorable! You're rocking that cut. You should maintain it, it looks great.

I recently chopped off my hair, too. Seems to be a trend - lose weight, cut the hair. :)I keep going shorter.

notimetoweight said...

Love it! I chopped about 8" off myself last October and it seems to be getting shorter and shorter :-)

When I saw you at walmart the other day I immediately loved it. I thought the short really looked good on you. I have been going shorter and shorter and realizing that it's actually slimming! Anyway, lov eit!
