Hair yesterday . . . gone today!

I started growing out my hair when I finished college and moved to Illinois four years ago. Partially to prove that I could survive having long hair and to appease a few people that had wanted me to finally let it grow out. Anyone who has known me longer than the last four years knows that I am by nature a short hair kind of gal so this was actually quite out of character for me.

Part of my justification for growing it out was that I would make sure that I would grow it long enough that it wou
ld be enough to donate to Locks of Love when I finally cut it off. About a year ago it was long enough (the minimum 10" requirement), but I decided to let it keep growing.

The last couple months I have been dying to cut it all off so finally today I did. My friend Lori who cuts my hair cut off this 16" braid for me to send in.

I am really loving having my hair short again. But I feel that it may come as a sho
ck to the folks here who don't know the me that always had her hair short. But really . . . who cares . . . I love it this way!

yeah liz. you can't say you cut all your hair off and not post a before and after picture. i'm really curious...even if i always picture you with short hair. honestly, i always do a double take when i see you with long hair.

Hey its Nicki (Worthen) Young. You can't just say you chopped off a 16" braid from your hair...and not show a picture of your "new" look!

Hey! I want to see the "after" pic of you! I love your short hair by the way.

Liz - I love how you can't stand long hair. That's cool that you did the hair donation thing....but that chopped off braid looks like a snake!
