Goodbye, Long Hair!

After having long hair for 20+ years, yesterday I decided it was time for a change.

So far reactions have been mostly positive. As soon as he saw me E’s eyes got really big and he exclaimed, “Wow, your hair looks so good! I like it!” (He’s going to make someone a great husband one day.) My sister Jan and cousin Young Shin, who were babysitting the kids for me, said they like it. According to Young Shin, who just moved here from Korea, it makes me look “like a New Yorker.” And N thought it looked cute.

But poor Mimi kept looking at me in confusion and then looking around the room and back to me until she scrunched up her face and cried like her heart was broken. Poor thing. But as you can see, she got over it.

After having long hair since I was a kid it feels strange to have it so short I can’t even put it in a pony tail. But so far I really like it–no regrets! I’m kind of a beauty/fashion newbie so I’m sure there will be a bit of a learning curve to getting the hang of styling it. But I already feel more put together.

  1. It looks lovely on you. Excellent choice and it seems like the stylist did a great job!

    Going short can be so freeing. When I go short my hair gets curlier, which makes it so hard to do what I like. Hence it being long now.

  2. So sweet about Mimi! And I love that the men in the family approved. I think it looks so awesome, Faith! So super chic. You are inspiring me to follow in your footsteps.

  3. Thanks, guys! I'm still liking the new cut, even though it hasn't looked as good as it did that first day when my stylist styled it. Maybe Santa will bring me a flat iron for Christmas?

    I have yet to get used to the tiny dollop of shampoo I now need, though. 🙂
