my new 'do pt. 2

It's been about ten years since the last time I chopped off all my long hair, and I'd say it was about time. For nearly a year my hair has seen nary a blow dryer or styling product and has been sadly and severely tied back in a ponytail. Limp, straggly, and neglected, it was longing for a change.

Since I no longer had the time or desire make my long hair look presentable I decided that I would find a style that would be easy, cute, and above all, low maintenance.

I also thought that since my acting career is on hold for a while I have no need to be as conservative with my style as I have been for so many years. You can't see it well in these pictures, but I had my stylist put in a few panels of purple dye in the lower layers of my hair. I can't wait to go to the park and be the mom with the purple hair.

Blow drying time is cut down from twenty to five minutes, but I don't even have to do that to make it look decent. If I let it air dry, it gets these cute waves and still looks fine:














All in all I have to say I'm thrilled with the cut and very happy about my decision.

(Bonus, I had enough length to donate to Locks of Love, so my hair will go to someone who really needs it.)
