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.)

It's adorable! I'm so jealous that it looks that cute without any work!

Yes, being a new mommy makes you as practical as possible.

Looks good on you. :)

I love your hair, sweetie! Good for you! How nice that you could donate your beautiful hair to Locks of Love. That was a good deed.

Looks very good. When you are a mom you gotta find time for yourself...
What is next?
