Hair ~ Elbow Length Layered Cut

So, I made my decision while sitting in the chair...
and the final result is...

12" off for Locks of Love and then another 2-3 to trim it up and add long layers.
Here's the before and after to give you a screen shot to compare. 
May 1, 2013 ~ A new, bouncier cut.
Definately feels lighter, bouncy and I can reach the end now when braiding.  I think I like it, especially when the FL heat starts to kick in.  :D

Hope you all enjoyed seeing the transition.

Looks so lovely!! So fresh & healthy :) I'm sure that does feel wonderful now that the weather is warming up and will be much easier to manage. Blessings!

So nice to have to stop by. I am pleased to have the lighter weight {maybe less headaches for now}. It is odd to reach back and NOT have hair so low anymore, but nice NOT to get in the car and sit on it or close the door on it, too. ;D

Blessings to you and your precious family. I do hope you are all doing well.

Thank you for your kind comment. My husband is happy and the children were pleased, too. My girls a little surprised with the shorter cut.

You and your family have been in my prayers at the marking your husband's passing. What a beautiful family you have and your faith is magnified through them...the legacy of your husband revealed through you and your children.

Prayers and blessing ~

Wow! I saw the after picture on Facebook, but seeing the before is amazing!
By the way, I just found your business card that you gave me at Emily's wedding. Now I can follow your blog. :)

I really like the length and the ease of care, too. Praying for you all as you transition into another school year, harvest time and setting new schedules.

It is so nice to hear from you. I have thought of you on a few ocassions since the wedding and hoped to be able to connect again. :D Hope the herb class is going well for your daughter and life is well with your precious family. Missed seeing you at Barberville...maybe in the fall {more artisians, re-enactors, music & contra dancing}. If you ever make it up my way drop me a line.

Blessing ~
