the big cut

Here I am in the chair as she's putting in the pony tails. I look nervous, but I actually wasn't.

Measuring the ponytails to make sure they were all at least 10 inches. I'm pretty sure they were close to 12.

Making the cut. She had to work hard to get her shears through my hair.

Bye-bye first ponytail.The raw cut and the ponytails.

Now to make it pretty.
She ended up using the thinning shears a lot. My hair is thick! I didn't even realize how thick it is since I haven't ever had it this short. Plus, it's thicker now since I'm pregnant.My final haircut (with unruly bangs) and the hair I gave away.
This haircut took forever! We were there for 2 hours!
Back at home...
Here is the back of my hair.

And here is the front. I might cut my bangs a little shorter, but I'm very happy with it.
It actually doesn't even feel that weird to have my hair so short, even though it is the shortest I've ever had it. I think it's because I've been mentally prepared for months, since I decided to do this a year ago. It will be so nice not to have all that long hair during the hot North Carolina summer.

  1. I LOVE it!!! Love it love it. You look SO cute. Its amazing how different the overall look is and how both are pretty. I think you look so much like Hilary. (I remember it with 1 L, sorry if I'm wrong.) What does Jared think? So why did it take so long? New stylist or just thick hair? I like it that you have the same outfit for the before and after. SO cute.

  4. For all of you who are wondering, yes, I totally love Katrina's hair! I was nervous about the idea of her cutting it, but knew this was a good cause. Mostly I just wanted to make sure it was cute, and I trust my wife. :) I also think she looks more like Hilary, and super sexy with that bob with l'air fran├žais. And though most guys insist preference for long hair, short hair is fun to play with. So yes, I approve!

  7. It's so great on you! What a fun, fresh change -- so nice for summer. I'm thinking of doing the same thing...might have to think about it for a while more, though.

    LoveLove.

  8. That looks super cute on you! Proof that if you have fab hair and super cute dimples, you can look cute all the time :) Me...I cut off my hair for LoL and it just looked stringy and I looked fat (thankfully my kind friends didn't tell me until after it grew back out!). Short hair is so great for the summer.

    I'm enjoying your weekly belly updates too :)

  9. People are saying that you look like Hilary, but since I've never met grown-up Hilary, I think you look a lot like your mom! And she is super cute! Again, it was so good to see you guys last month! Love your new hair!

  10. Okay, not to dwell on your long hair...but wow it was really long and totally gorgeous!!! I will forever be envious that my hair will never reach that desired length. As for the new hair cut...FOR CUTE!!! But you always look cute so I'm not surprised :)

  12. Adorable. Your hair is such a beautiful color - the exact shade I always wished I had. I guess it was an Anne of Green Gables thing.

    Some little red-headed child is going to be so happy with the wig they make from your hair.

  13. Love it, love it, love it! You totally look like Hillary (at least from her similar style at your wedding). I'm sure the receiver of the wig will be thinking "God bless you"- since hair like yours makes people say things like that :)

  14. Uh, I'm embarrassed now that I just read what other people wrote and realized that I pretty much plagiarized Autumn's comment (I swear I didn't read it before I made mine!).
