I finally did it! If you've seen me in the last week then you already know that I finally cut my hair after 2.5 years of growing it. I stopped cutting it when I was pregnant with Matt and when I finally cut it it was down to the bottom of my back! I cut off over 10 inches at Joy's new salon & boutique, Primped, in La Verne, CA.

Koby did an awesome job of giving me a style I can wear curly or straight. I also got some great new product to use–this has to be one of the best experiences I have had at a along in the last 12 or so years! So I definitely recommend checking them out. I will be back there for my next appointment soon!

Here is my hair in the braid before they cut it:



And here is my hair!!!!


After she cut it she flat ironed it but it was dark so this is hte best pic we could get:

Here is a better pic that Elena took of Xaver and I at a Scrapbook Royalty party on Sat night:

So now I have to mail my braid to locks of love. I am so glad I finally did it!!

  7. Looks very nice Jennifer. I always regret cutting my long hair after I do it. I have the same issue with a style that works for straight or curly hair. Yours looks great!
