I cut my hair this past week.  I decided to cut it because it was giving me terrible headaches! But I couldn't decide what at ALL to do with it. So, I e-mailed Rubi from She Lets Her Hair Down about what I should do with my long locks. She is the one that suggested this cut, and I love it. I also have to thank Zen Salon in downtown lynchburg, because they are the ones that actually cut my hair.


This is exactly what the hairdresser did:
(These are the instructions Rubi emailed to me that I relayed to my hairdresser with a picture)

Cut 4 inches off the bottom, then cut long layers with weight removal - don't let your hairdresser use thinning shears, they should do the weight removal with scissors. I would also cut long bangs, they should fall at about your lip area, that way as they curl up they'll hit your cheekbones and if you ever straighten your hair they will hit your lips. That would be very flattering with your face shape. 

If you get that haircut then you should be able to style it so much easier, you'll also be able to just let it air dry and have it look good too. I think your hair is great long but it needs some shape to it, I can tell you've been trying to change it up a bit and this cut will make is so much easier for you to play with different styles. 

So, what do you guys think? Like the before, or the after? =) I like them both--but my hair no longer gives me headaches and is much more manageable! I can also do all sorts of new hairstyles because my hair is not 5ft long! =P

Wow I love it! It's so bouncy and Va Va Voom! It's still longer than most, and I'm so glad it's not giving you headaches anymore. Can't wait to see how you continue to play with it!
