Well I chopped all of my hair off :)

After spending nearly 2 years wanting to cut all of my hair off, I finally did it.

I loved my dreadlocks but they prevented me from getting a job. I combed them out about a month ago and then got hired on at a restaurant. Finally one day I just got so sick of my hair that I made the appointment and 2 days later my hair was off.

I ended up donating 12 inches which is something I have always wanted to do. I love my short hair as much as my dreadlocks! The cut she did is amazing! I can mess it up or I can wear it in a girly way. There is so much for me to do with it. I can not see myself ever going back to long hair :)

Sorry for the terrible selfies! I don't often have my picture taken as I am usually the one taking them.

I think your hair was pretty in the first picture, but the last one with the short hair was pretty too!

Holy WOW girl! I saw your picture of your long hair and was like "Noooo!" because I'm growing my hair out and envious of pretty long hair. And then I clicked the next picture and it just looks so damn fabulous. I LOVE it!

With your pale and pretty skin and your funky new do, you should rock some red on them lips!

I love the haircut! It really shows off your eyes.
How long did you have dreads? My son just cut his off after growing them for 3 years because he was looking for a job. He wanted to comb them out but we both thought it would be completely impossible!

Thank you so much guys! This was a really big step for me. I am trying to live more for myself then for others and I am so happy with the choice I made!

It is really odd getting used to it. I keep thinking my hair is in a ponytail when I go to shower or crawl into bed. Styling it is a lot more fun though! I have a lot of learning but I am slowly getting the hang of it. I only cut it a week ago so I still have days where it just looks terrible haha.

I am also learning that I can pull off pretty much any look I want with it. I have done the cute girly look, the sophisticated look, the rocker look, and the androgynous look. It is prefect because I never feel the same way twice when I wake up in the morning and now I can embrace it.

I only had my dreads for about 4 months. They took me 36 hours to comb out! I was tempted to cut them off but then I realized I spent far too much time growing it out and I have wanted to donate my hair for a really long time so I sat here and combed them all out.

Love it! The middle photo was my fav. I love short hair but my bone structure is pretty masculine so I can't pull it off. Your style still looks so soft and feminine on you!

WOOWWZZERS! I absolutely LOVE your new hair style. It looks so much more grown up on you. I'm going to go to the hair dresser myself this time next week, and I'd love to find a photo of your new hair style to show to her, and then get my own hair cut into your new style.

You are absolutely STUNNING with your new hair. Your beautiful face is even more beautiful now (as if you needed any more help to be more beautiful). :)

Agh I'm jealous. I have curly hair, so it's impossible to rock short hair like that. It looks so good on you!!
