Five inches. That's how much Amber cut off when I went in today for my haircut. This is the picture I gave her to model the cut after. Whoah, I was kinda nervous. I've had quite long hair for three years, and it became my security blanket. But it had to go. I have so much thick hair that it started to feel like a big, tangled blob at the back of my head. I had to sleep on it for a week just to get it to smooth down a little after washing. Plus I just got so sick of having the same style for so long. Now I feel light-weight and light-hearted. Amber did a great job.
