About a month ago, I did something that completely shocked my husband. I was out of town for a blogging conference and sent him a text picture with my hair about 8 inches shorter than when he had last seen me, via Skype the night before. I sweated it out for about 20 minutes, waiting for a response. Did he hate it? Would he view me very differently? Why wasn’t he writing back immediately?
I had woken up early that day for a 7:30 am blowout with a celebrity hair stylist and his team. Instead of the long and volumized hair that I expected, I walked out about 90 minutes later with a long sleek bob that was shorter than my hair had ever been in my life (you can read more about the chopping of my hair here). I had let myself be talked into a dramatic hair cut by a stylist I had never met. I’m a girl that debates for 3 months before adding extra highlights, and here I was chopping off a lot of length on a whim. Was this a big mistake?
