And then the day after my wedding, I decided to chop it all off! New life, new hair!
While I loved my new haircut, I had cutter's remorse. I missed having my long hair and the versatility it allowed me. And so I spent the next 3 years growing out my hair.
It was amazing while I was pregnant and taking prenatal vitamins. My hair was growing fast and healthy. Then my son was born and it felt as if I was going bald. My hair would come out in fist-fulls and it would take over our house. So, again I decided to chop it all off.
I made an appointment at 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon for 4 o'clock. That would give me no time to back out!
I was very nervous since other than trims, I had never had my hair cut in France. The language barrier was going to be tough, but I figured hand signals would always work. When I walked in she said what do you want to do, and all I said was short. Very short! She looked at me puzzled and said are you sure? Reassuring coming from your hairstylist.
She started cutting and did a great job! She even thanked me since she said she rarely gets to do something so drastic. I'm still getting used to it.
Will I regret it in a week or so, probably. Will I spend the next 3 years trying to grow it back out. More than likely. But for one brief weekend it was liberating to go and get it all chopped off!
