Bawbi has a new look

The temperatures this week in Columbia, South Carolina have been in the miserable 100's. Actually it has been that way for much of the Summer. This is no fun when you carry around what feels like a fur coat on top of your head. The fur coat I speak of would be my hair. I have been growing it out for about a year now so that I could donate it to Locks of Love. I have always wanted to do it but either my hair was too short, too layered or the one time we had a ponytail incident that messed up my chance to donate it. Let's just say that you should not play pass the ponytail. It could get real messy! Here are some photos of what my hair looked like before:


It sounded like my hair stylist was sawing through my hair! It took an entire minute to cut the ponytail off. There were a few other ladies waiting for their appointment and they all sat there nervously watching me get all my hair hacked off. I was the only one that was happy. Everyone else thought I was nuts.

I knew I had a lot of hair but did not realize it was that much!
After losing about 15 inches, this is the end result:

  1. Love the new cut. Our local news caster was growing her hair out for that foundation and it seems as if she was growing it forever.

  7. I love the new haircut! It's so cute! And to those who think you're weird for cutting it off - who cares! It'll grow back. Too much hair gets too hot in the summer anyhow.

    I love your new cut, but tell me the truth, do you miss your long hair? I'm finding that I miss mine. I can no longer put it in a ponytail, which was so much easier. Luckily my hair grows back fast, but now that I want it to grow, it will probably take forever!
