New haircut August 2012, reminiscent of my hair circa 2001
Last time I got my haircut I went from really long to really short and donated my hair. My hair was so short, and I don't fuss with it a lot, so I didn't really need a haircut for a while.
My last haircut in November 2009
Then my dad got sick in 2010, and it sort of became a thing-- I wasn't really in the primping mood for a long time. Plus, I was pregnant at around the same time and pregnant women have great hair. It goes with the hormones.
Still, all that doesn't really account for the last year. I usually wear my hair wavy. This means that my hair suffers less blow-dryer damage. The split ends that I did accumulate over time weren't as visible as they would be if my hair were straight. Finally, I was nervous about getting a new stylist in our town. That's the wimpiest reason I know. But there it is.
So I finally got my haircut, and I got it cut sort of the way I had it when I graduated college. Now I just need to reach my college weight again (ha!) and we'll be moving right along.
