I Blame Pinterest

12:00 AM

When people see my hair they tend to ask why I cut it.  I blame Pinterest.  It puts all of these ideas in your head and then you decide hey maybe I can do this/pull it off.  When I saw this image, that's exactly what I thought:
That's when I scheduled an appointment at Mina's Studio, a beauty salon in Chapel Hill.  I was terrified that this haircut wouldn't be something that I could pull off.  I've never tried something dramatic, especially with my hair.  Karen, my stylist, personalized this style for me in such a fabulous way.  She took her time, and you could tell that she truly cared about how the cut looked.  That was really important to me considering I was paying a decent amount of money and I was getting such a drastic cut.  I went from this:
To this:

I couldn't believe the difference.  I actually didn't even realize how long my hair was before it was cut, so it was crazy to see the before and after picture.  I feel like a new person, and I think I look like a different person as well.  I will be returning to Mina's Studio, and I will be scheduling my appointment with Karen.  She did an amazing job, and I am so thrilled with my haircut.  I feel beautiful, I feel more grown-up, and I feel sassy.  I was scared the cut wouldn't look good with my face shape, but I have been so pleased with how it makes me look.  Here's a selfie for reference:
What do you think about my haircut?  I would really love to hear your opinions.  What's the most dramatic haircut you've ever had?
