I had the big chop.
I was nervous. I wasn’t sure if a pixie cut would suit me. My salon would style it, of course, but I had no idea if I could pull it off on a daily basis. Plus, I was comfortable with braiding and curling and styling my long hair. I’ve always had long hair, save for that one time in high school when I tried cutting my hair short myself, and those few months from late 2009 to early 2010 when I had an apple bob right before I started this blog.
But I needed a change.
And I could always grow it out if it didn’t work. And I trusted my stylist.
And I needed a change.
So here we are.
I LIKE IT.
Just because of my haircut, all my clothes seem to look new somehow. (Yay, new clothes without shopping!)
Also, it’s time to bring on the earrings. I actually have a LOT of dangling earrings, but I usually reserved them for special occassions, or when I felt particularly inclined to accessorize. Whenever I had a Closet Purge, there were several times when I wanted to toss my big earrings in the discard pile for the sole reason that I wasn’t using them. But now, they’re a part of my daily outfits! Keeping them is now justified, and I don’t necessarily have to buy new ones!
My Pinterest account, then, now has a boards relating to pixie cuts and styling short hair and how to grow it out gracefully.
This outfit: Blue blouse, DEI. Jeans, Jag. Black tube. Earrings inherited from my mom. Necklace also inherited from my mom. Haircut by my regular stylist, Mr. Bunny at Bench Fix Trinoma.
