Changes: Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow



I've been feeling a little heavy lately. And so I thought a change was in order. In my highly structured world, I don't have a lot of room to change many things. But there are a few things that I can. Like my hair. 


Here's me before:




My hair is curly and thick and has the mass of a thousand dying stars. OK, maybe a slight exaggeration. But it was totally killin' me, Smalls. So I went to this super chic and trendy boutique hair salon (*cough*Hair Cuttery*cough) and told the stylist: "Just chop it off. I'm so done with it." And of course, like any good stylist, she kept asking me if I was sure, and I kept saying yes.


And after she was done, it was the second shortest length I've ever had my hair. (Let's not talk about the Prince-circa-Purple-Rain hairdo when I was in 3rd grade.) 


Here's me after (I straightened my hair, so it's a bit longer here than when it's au naturel):




And I love it. I feel lighter. I use less shampoo. It dries faster. On rainy days, I may or may not resemble a wet poodle. But I'm OK with that. And here's hoping that the heaviness finally gets a little lighter. 


Have you made any positive changes lately?
