Here's a little fact about me and my two younger brothers - we have a strange tendency to cut our own hair. We do occasionally get haircuts from people who actually know what they're doing, but we have been known to spontaneously bring out the scissors and do the deed ourselves. I'm not talking about a little trim on the bangs either... I'm talking about drastic hair changes.
This was the last picture my brother took of my long hair before I used a pair of sewing scissors and cut it off. I actually didn't really want layers this time - I wanted a more messy, choppy look. I probably should have used real haircutting scissors or thought out exactly how much I wanted to cut off but before I could get into all those details, my impatient Edward Scissorhands were already in action and there was enough hair on the floor to make a pet chihuahua (a very creepy-looking black one).
It took less than 5 minutes to cut and now it will probably take more than 5 months to grow out again. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet but it was time for a change and there's no looking back! =)
