A couple weeks ago, a Facebook friend changed her profile picture to one of Jennifer Lawrence in a University of Louisville tee. JLaw’s pixie was super cute, and inspired me. I’ve been feeling a bit blah in the hair department any way, so I decided to chop all my hair off.

Occasionally on the weekends I would actually fix my hair – blowing it dry then using a fat barreled curling iron. But mostly I just scrunched it curly with gel or else pulled it back into a ponytail.

Finally the magical day arrived!! I took in a picture of the cut, and told her in addition I wanted color to cover my gray. Dark, but with a few highlights. She set to work, making me beautiful.

Buh bye length. Then it was time to crawl into her rocket ship, and travel forward in time for color.

Then she did a bit more refining before I got to see the finished product.

Two weeks later I’m still loving it. I don’t think I’ve worn it the same way twice. Its an incredibly easy cut to work with after my lunch time runs. Of course you saw in my race report that it gives me no problems whatsoever when I’m pounding the pavement.

What do you look for in a hair cut – looks, convenience, or both?
Have you ever dared a super drastic change?
