New Hair!

Hey everyone!  So since my blog is based on beauty related things, I thought I'd share that I recently went and chopped a majority of my hair off!  I am kind of sad because I would have liked to donate it, but my lovely hairdresser and I decided that if she cut the correct amount for donation (I think 10 inches?) that it would be going shorter than what I had originally requested.  Ah, decisions, decisions!  In any case, I really love my new hair!  It's so much faster showering with shorter hair!  Styling is a bit more difficult for me; yes it is faster styling time wise, but I feel it more difficult because styling longer hair was way easy.  With long hair, I could leave it just plain blow dried, throw it in a braid, up in a pony, or curl it real quick for added interest.  With short hair, if I don't style it, it looks like I rolled out of bed haha.

I really love both!  I have always loved my hair long, and I've also really loved it short too.  I'm really enjoying the super speedy showers and the light feeling, and how can I forget?!  The fact that my hair feels so much healthier after cutting off all of the crap!


Sorry, the only picture I have currently is the Instagram/filtered one.  What do you guys prefer?  Do you like your hair long or short?  Let me know in the comments! ^.~

  3. Cute! Long and short lengths both suit you but it must be really nice for you to have a new style :) Shorter lengths are definitely easier to maintain. I've been sporting a chin length a-line bob for awhile.

    1. Hi Rowena! It's been a while! I hope you're well! ^_^ ♥ And thank you for your kind compliments! I really love both lengths on me too. My husband seems to really love both also. I'm really enjoying the shorter length right now, it's perfect for summer. Do you have any favorite ways to style or favorite tutorials? I've been researching new ways to do my hair since it's shorter now. So far, I will curl it (or attempt to) lol or keep it straight. ^__^ would love to hear any tips you have!

  6. Yay for donating your hair!! =)
    You look so pretty with both lengths though I think I like the shorter style especially for the summer!
    It's much more refreshing and you look so much more mature with it! Plus the less styling time (not to mention using less product hehe) must be a good feeling!!

    1. Yaaay! Mindy, thank you for your sweet comments! <3 I really love sporting shorter hair for the summer too. It'll grow out before fall before I know it! (My hair grows really fast.) It's funny, I've been told that my shorter hair makes me look both more mature and even younger! haha go figure! XD

  9. So you 'liked' a few of my tweets recently on my personal account (convo with June), so I decided to check out your blog! I recently got my hair cut too AND I LOVE it. (Except now I gotta work on making my hair look ~effortlessly voluminous~) But then again, my hair ends were crusty before the chop, but I got my hair cut at around your length too! Your cut is too cute!

    1. Hi Vanessa! Oops caught me stalking red handed I guess! Haha! Thanks so much for checking out my blog! I just love my new hair cut, it's so much healthier and fun to touch. I think I really welcomed the short/new change because it feels more playful then my "feminine" long locks. Really diggin' it for Summer. Really love your blog, your photos are UHMAYZING! *__* Thanks for visiting! ♥

  10. I think you look cute with long and short hair c:
    I have cut my hair that short as well, and I love it!
    The downside might be that I'll miss having a bun
    or braiding :P Xx

    1. Thank you! ♥ I feel the same! I miss side braids, long romantic curls and BUNS!! Haha it was the easiest style for me on busy mornings! Now if i want to put my hair up or in a bun, I need thousands of bobby pins! haha.

    1. Hi Charmaine! Thanks for reading and your kind comment! ^_^ I actually think you'd look great with shorter hair. It just depends on the style or cut you decided on! I found that I was scared of shorter hair, because I have gained a lot of weight over the last few years, and I was worried that my hair would make my face seem chubbier somehow. But with the cut I got, it frames just the right way to where it really enhanced my features! You should give it a try someday! ^_^ Thanks for the invite to your giveaway I will definitely check it out!

  12. Awww you look beautiful with your new hair style! I just got my super long hair cut to a lob as well and man oh man does it feel much lighter! I also don't go through so much shampoo ;)

    1. Hi Phoebe! Thanks so much for your sweet comment! ^_^ You're quite beautiful yourself! <3 And yes, I completely 100% agree! It is SO much lighter after cutting about 10 inches off haha! It was a major weight lifted from my head! XD I also reap the benefits of not using as much shampoo! It's the best! :D

  13. Hey Anna. The short hair makes you look really young and fresh. I get what you mean by the longer styling. Long hair would weigh my hair down straight but when I had short hair, it keeps curling outwards not in a nice manner. I wonder how people get those sleek straight or those curl in short hair. I guess they blow and style it.

    RYC:
    Thank you for your wishes and comment, Anna. I didn't know about your stomach health so thanks for sharing. Do you suffer from IBS? Mine is unknown. I heard from the specialist that when gastrointestinal problems remain unsolved, they would just term it as IBS. It sux not to be able to eat many foods w/o having problems.

    1. Jo you always leave the sweetest comments! ♥ I really love the new hair style, it's a lot of fun to play with and it's still long enough to pull into a tiny pony tail, and curl for texture and such. Maybe I'll do a post on how I like to style my new hair. ^o^

      I have a really weird tummy (hubby hates it haha), it's picky sometimes and other times it's totally fine. I have not seen a doctor for it, but hubby thinks I have IBS. I usually eat everything haha, but deal with the consequences later >_>; The only thing I know for sure I cannot eat without getting sick (because without fail every time I eat it I get sick) are pancakes! But it's so strange because I can eat waffles with no issues and they have essentially the same ingredients.

  14. I think that you look great with both short hair and long hair. It must feel so liberating to cut off that much hair though!

    1. Ah thank you! ^__^ ♥ So sweet! And yes, it was totally liberating and let me tell you, my head felt like 20lbs lighter! haha :3 It's so fast and easy to style now, I just love my quick showers. Getting ready isn't such a hassle and I forgot how much I loved shorter hair, but I'm sure before I know it the length will be back to where it was in no time (my hair grows so fast >.>)

    1. I think it's pretty scary to chop your hair off after having it long for some time. I've had my hair short (shorter than this too) before and so the shock doesn't phase me much anymore. I love both lengths, but my hair grows so fast that I don't even miss the length much. What you could do is maybe start not by chopping all of your length off, but shortening just a bit to see if you like it, and if not it'll grow out, or you can chop more off! ^__^ Thank you so much for your sweet comments, you are too kind! ♥

  20. I see it's been a while since you cut your hair. How do you feel about it? I'm still getting used to my short hair! I feel like it's so much harder to style.

    Sincerely,

    1. Hi Sabrina! Thanks for stopping by! I've actually been meaning to update or maybe do a "how I style my short hair" post. I still really actually quite like it! I'm actually even thinking of getting the length just a tad bit shorter on my next appointment/touch up! I love the length still, and it's fun and playful when I curl it, but I find I usually just pin it up all crazy and go for a messy tousled half/bun do'. I also have been finding myself just simply blow drying and leaving it as such, or even straightening it. I get the most compliments when it's curled! I agree it is much harder to style short hair, however it's been a fun experience so far. I've had short hair a bit shorter than I have it now, in the past, and I never did anything with it! D: I've been hitting up Pinterest like crazy for short hair styles, dos' and tutorials!
