Short Hair and Loving it

Having long hair was a goal of mine for many years. I wanted it long like a princess! But in reality I almost always wore up in a ponytail to get it out of my face. The length also made it more difficult for me to color it. So I've been toying with the idea to go back short. One night after I washed it I grabbed the scissors and just cut the tail off. My philosophy on this was if I "ruin" the length then I'll *have* to cut it short! No turning back! I am SO glad I did it. It feels so much better to have it short and thinned out now. It's also so easy to wear wigs for my cosplays. And the best part was it cut my drying time in half! I'm pretty happy with pink right now, but I want to experiment with more colors soon. :)




I cut it all myself but I don't recommend trying this at home! I have been doing my own hair for over 10 years. 


And here's a picture of the color I used. It's RAW's Fuschia Fatale mixed with a lot of conditioner to lighten it some. I let it sit for an hour or so on my head then rinse with cool water! :)

  1. Wow you do such a great job cutting your own hair! I think it looks great, and the pink definitely looks great on you too :-)

  2. Your short hair looks fantastic. I can't believe you cut it yourself. How did you get the back so straight? So rad.

  3. You are rockin' the short hair!! I'm in the middle of growing mine out again (promise to my husband ;p), but every time I see someone rocking a pixie I feel a little pang of jealousy.

  4. I LOVE your hair! It's always so pretty!
    I cut my hair on Friday in a semi-bobb!
    BUT I plan on trying a pixie cut one day!
    I just need a new job so I can color it ;)

  5. I dye my hair neon blue (have done for about 5 years now) and I went down to a pixie cut last year - it instantly felt SO much healthier! It's growing back now, but I did love the feel of shorter hair (plus it saved me a lot of money on dye ;P )
