Short Hair!

So folks if you have followed this blog you will know I have had long hair the entire time I’ve had this blog. In fact, I haven’t had short hair since I lived in California in 1998. How crazy is that?

Well one thing I have always wanted to do is donate hair to a worthy organization for those in need but I have never had the guts. I have also had a hard time finding a stylist that I trusted and cared for here in Draper, so I put off cutting my hair. In fact, I hadn’t had a trim of any kind in at least 2 years. Well, we decided to do a photo shoot for Hallmarkies podcast with my friend Kristi Linton and so I felt it was time to get my hair cut.

I went to the Rooted Aveda salon in Draper and had a stylist named Britney. She said it was her first day at the salon but luckily she had been doing hair for over 15 years. This place is expensive but especially for such an epic cut it is well worth it.

After much hemming and hawing I finally mustered up the courage to cut my hair and donate it! I actually have to send it in so I am looking into what organization is the best, so if you have any insight I would love to hear it. But look at all that hair!


I had Britney curl my hair because that is my favorite styling and what I wanted for the photo shoot and it is going to take some getting used to but I think it looks cute!

It feels like there is something missing when I move my head but it is kind of liberating to try a new style after all these years of doing long curly hair. Everyone has been so nice with their praise and kind words about the new style. Thanks!

So there you go. I am now Ms Short Hair (but I can still put it in a ponytail which was a requirement).  I’m excited for this new change!

  1. Your new style is more medium-length than short, but it looks nice, so, we won’t count the inches! 🙂

    Anyhow . . . I alternated between short, medium and long for most of my adult life. Then, about 18 years ago, after the long hair got difficult to manage, I had it bobbed (by a stylist who took care of the donation end of it), and I’ve never looked back. In fact, I’ve even gone shorter with it: after chemo gave me the Yul Brynner look, the only drawback of which was feeling cold, and then the hair began to grow back, it was in lovely tight curls. The curls lasted only a couple of months, but I liked the shining silver cap of the early re-growth, so I started having the stylist keep it very short all over (only 3/4 inch long), to keep that look.

    Enjoy the freedom!
