The haircut

Pantene 2

Until today, I hadn’t had my hair cut in over three years.  My hair was down my back, almost to my waist.  I was really enjoying long hair for the first time in my life because it was pretty short for most of my life before this.  But, it was time to get several inches cut off.  It was getting so long that it was just about unmanageable.  I decided, though, that since it was so long, I would donate my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths program for making wigs for cancer patients.

Today was the day.  My husband and daughter were supportive, but my son was quite distressed.  He doesn’t like change, and he really didn’t like the idea of my not having long hair.  We decided to make it a big affair, so the kids and I all went to the salon.  The stylist cut off my ponytail first and then washed, cut, and styled my hair.  I hope you agree that the finished product is worth losing 9 inches of hair for!
