Goodbye Long Hair, Hello Lob!

Okay guys I promised you I would post pictures of my new do!  If you follow me on instagram you might have seen it already (glamhungrymom is my user name if you want to follow me).

I tried to VLOG with my Nikon, but it was out of focus the entire time!  Oy!  My son even made an appearance.  I’ll make sure to do another VLOG and remember to switch my camera off from manual focus to autofocus.  Sorry guys!  I’ll sum it up for you in this post with some (somewhat blurry) screenshots and pictures :)

I’d just like to preface by telling you guys I was so scared and excited for the big chop at the same time.  You know when you’re just ready for a change?

I wanted to VLOG the experience but as you can see through my screenshots it was a little out of focus.  Bummer.  This is when my son was asking who I was talking to…and then he farted on my lap.

I am sooo going to miss my long pony!  Check out my 2008 earrings.  I literally haven’t worn them since 2008, but I’m glad I pulled them because they compliment my top!

I don’t even know.  Blooper alert!

I’m going to miss my sock bun!  Thank you Pinterest Gods for showing me the gloriousness that is the sock bun.  It is seriously the best hairstyle for busy women to look polished in no time flat.

My final farewell to my hair.  It’s been fun, but I’m ready for a change.  It’s not you.  It’s me.  I just don’t have time for you in my life right now.  I hope we can still be friends.

This is only half of my hair that they cut.  I wanted to donate it to Locks of Love, but wasn’t able to because it was colored.  Sad face.

The left represents how I felt inside.  The right is how I kept trying to act.  I was bursting at the seams to see the finished product!  Speaking of which…..

Here is the picture from the side.  I got some beautiful mocha highlights and darkened up my base back to the natural.  I love love love the color!

Here it is from the front!  I love it!  I succumbed to the mom hair, but I think it’s sophisticated.  What do you guys think?  It’s kind of a mix between a bob and a lob, eh?  I need help with ideas for styling.  I haven’t had short hair since I was 5!  I need your advice, ladies!

Big thank you to Arie from Makeovers Salon in Easton, MA.  She did an awesome job!

How was your weekend?  Do you ever get the itch for a change in your life?

    It looks so good!! I’m trying to talk myself into making that kind of commitment. I can only hope I pull it off as well as you do!

      You’re too sweet. I literally had to talk myself into it for about 6 months. I’ve been wanting to do it and I finally called and scheduled an appointment for the next day. If I waited any longer I would have talked myself out of it!

    Your hair is ADORABLE!!! LOVE it! I had been growing my hair out for a couple years and just decided to get it cut into a long bob a couple months ago. It took getting used to, but I love it now!
