Like 99% of brides, I grew out my hair for our wedding. From engagement day on (December 10, 2010), I only had tiny trims of my long blonde locks so that my hair could be the right length for the hairstyle I wanted on my big day. I must say, it turned out beautifully!
Can’t tell how long it really was? Check out this picture from the last day of our honeymoon, as we waited for the resort staff to come pick us up and take us to the airport:
Freaky, right? So something had to be done. I am loyal to Samantha, my hairstylist here in Little Rock, and because she was on vacation at the end of August, the earliest I could get in was yesterday. You saw the two pictures I was debating between, and the unanimous choice was the Jessica Alba look (thanks to everyone who weighed in!)
Before I show you the new ‘do, let me advocate this – if your hair is long enough (read: if you have 10 inches or more to spare), please consider donating it to Locks of Love or a similar charity. As happy as I was to cut my hair (finally), I was exponentially happier knowing a person with cancer would benefit from a wig made from my hair.
Here is the last picture of my looooooooooong hair, about to be cut for donation!
And here is the final product! Thanks so much to everyone who has left such kind comments on my Facebook page – it has really made my day!
I really love it :) And best of all, my husband REALLY loves it! The joy and excitement on his face was indescribable – definitely the best part of the whole experience!!!
