My Hair Growth Journey

Long time followers of this blog may remember when I got a drastic hair cut in August of 2013. What do I mean by drastic? Well, here is how long my hair looked back then:

As you can see, it was quite long. It was even longer in the back as I had layered hair. Here is what my hair looked like after I cut it. 

Incredibly short. It's funny because I wanted to have short hair because it looks so cute on people who can pull it off. I walked out of that salon feeling fabulous! The next day, after I showered and found that getting my hair to look the way my hairdresser did it was an impossible feat for me, I started to regret my decision. Luckily, this regret didn't last too long. I suppose I simply wasn't accustomed to my hair looking so short. I very soon embraced it. I'm not too attached my hair, to be honest. For me, hair grows back and I can get used to anything - even a big change in hair length. It's not permanent and look how much it's grown back now, a year and a half later:

I actually quite like my hair at my current length. Not long, not too short - perfect for a working girl like me! 

So tell me about some of your drastic haircut stories - I know you guys have them! I'd love to hear about some of the interesting styles you've had!


  1. You can totally work both the long + short cuts, lucky girl! :)

  2. You look very pretty!

  3. You look beautiful with short and long hair! :)
    A year and a half ago I went to my saloon and just wanted go get a trim, but my hairdresser, who had never failed me, cuted so, so much that day, I don't know what got into her... anyway, I cried so much the first days... Now I'm letting it grow and changed hairdresser, but it takes too much to grow! :p


  4. I actually do love your hair the length it is now. It's not too short but is manageable! You look great with any length hair, but I definitely think this length now is the perfect fit! It's funny to look back at how short your hair was!

    Much Love,

  9. You look SO cute with super short hair! It's dramatically different but I think it looked really fun and flirty. And I'm just like you;I don't really care about hair. Even if i get a hideous haircut I just make it work, haha. The most dramatic style I did was cutting it into a pixie. I thought it was cute buuuut I have super thick hair so it ended up looking like a bowl haircut half the time instead of a chic twiggy look. sigh. it's always a struggle isn't it? haha

  10. hahaha! I always wanted to do the change.... but was too scared, until some months ago when I chopped it all.... It was super long... and suddenly super short! The first time I showered I used a crazy amount of shampoo! :D
