A Picture Loaded Short Haired Sensational Sunday

44 Comments 5249 views

Saturday afternoon I sat nervously at the hairdressers.

I’m not sure why I was so nervous it wasn’t like I haven’t has short hair before. I cut it all off my senior year of high school and didn’t start growing it out until about 6 years ago. But as anyone who’s grown out short hair before, you get attached. You just do. Plus I’ve had longer hair since starting this blog and losing the weight so in a weird way the short hair represents "old Roni" but I digress.

Anyway here’s a short pictorial of my salon adventure.

Let me tell you my hairdresser, Christina, had NO mercy. I sat in her chair and she said are you sure… I said yup.. and Snip! My hair was gone!

Little guy came with me, of course. He was having fun snapping photos of the process.

Although he did get a little bored. :)

The result…

No hair!

I love it!

No.. really I do.

Honestly, I don’t even miss it. It’s so weird. I feel like this is just the way my hair is suppose to be. The way I see it if I want long hair I can throw on a wig but day to day I want to be able to wash and go. I’m not cut out for a lot of hygiene overhead. If that makes any sense.

Besides my hair adventure the weekend was jam packed with fun! Little Guy had sports games. I caught up with an old friend and saw Robin Hood. This morning started with a run before I prepared to host poker night which… I won! Lunches are made. Fridge is filled with fresh veggies from the farm stand. AND it was warm enough to spend some time outside to run in sprinkles and catch some bugs.

I’m ready to start this week! How about you?

    After I lost weight after my first baby, I chopped my hair off. It was very liberating. My actual words were “I totally get why Britney did it!” Congrats on the new haircut, it’s sooo flattering and gorgeous! Short hair is just so much easier when you’re a mom!!!

    I think it is amazing that you have the “guts” to cut off your hair. I am personally so attached to my hair that I only cut my hair once a year or so!! I let my mom do little bang trims, but other than that I like my hair to be shoulder length or longer!! :) I also wanted to say that I LOVE your new hair and I wish that I had the courage to do so aswell!!

    You look amazing and you definitely can rock the short hair! Getting a pixie cut (or at least getting my hair cut really short) is on my list of things to do – I feel like it will be sooo liberating.

    Very cute! I once had my hair cut short like that and it really is amazing how wonderfully free it feels…lucky guys (and gals like you that can pull it off;)

    Gorgeous and so smart. I’m glad you like it because it really, really suits you. So much prettier than a quick tie back when busy too.

    Wow that looks awesome on you! I’m jealous… pixie cuts are verrrry bad for my face shape.

    How cute! I have been debating cutting mine. I am a former short-hair person who has been fighting a bob for years now in an attempt to look younger and, dare I say, thinner. Sigh. I wonder if I would feel over-exposed now with short hair. But oh the ease of it!

    Pure radiance…Inside and Out!!!

    Hair looks awesome! I wish I could pull off hair that short – I’m sure it’s so much easier getting ready after your morning runs.
    Your son is TOO cute! I can’t believe how big he is getting.

    I love it, Roni! You have a beautiful face and great bone structure, so you can absolutely pull it off. I also think it’s awesome that you had the guts to cut off your hair even when you were heavier. I think lots of bigger girls would be terrified of that–but it looked great on you! You are so brave!

    Short hair looks so great on you. That’s one of my favorite haircuts ever. It wouldn’t look good on me, but I always run up and compliment women who have their hair cut like yours. I’m still holding out for this haircut when I’ve lost all the weight. Your features now really pop, in a good way!

    The new ‘do is so cute! I really want a new style too, but I’m not brave enough to go short.

    Sensational. I would compliment you on your fashion forward hairstyle in person so why should the web be any different? The short crop is very flattering to your pretty face.

    I love it — it looks great on you! I was the same way — I hemmed and hawed about chopping off for months. When I finally went short I didn’t miss it at all — it felt like the real me!

    Wow! You look great!! Really it does suit you and I am excited that you were brave enough to do it. I have long hair but maybe someday…
    Must feel so freeing!

    Love the new hair, it looks great on you!

    Your hair looks awesome, Roni!

    I had short hair for so long I often get the urge to just chop it off. I like it both ways but Hunni likes it longer so I leave it longer.

    But you look great with the short. Really shows off your bone structure.

    Your hair looks amazing! I felt the same way when I cut my hair off- I didn’t miss it at all! It’s so freeing to have short hair.. it takes no time at all to do.
