No. This is not the "Mom" haircut that all Mom's do. I guess it looks like that because it was so drastic and because it was so much hair. But that's not why I cut it.
I chopped all of my hair off almost 2 years ago(click on "again" above) and gave it to Locks of Love. I liked it short so much that I decided I wanted to keep it that way. But I also liked donating so much that I decided I would also try to grow it out during pregnancy (since hair grows faster) so that I could donate again.
Then the pregnancy happened and I grew it out and I gained 46 pounds and my face was a giant swollen ball and I couldn't cut it short until I lost most/all of my baby weight.
I was/am 3 pounds away from my pre pregnancy weight and decided it was time.
So, chop chop chop and I'm left with VERY VERY short hair. A good 1-2 inches shorter than my first time. But, in order to donate I had to go that short.
I love the way it feels, but am not sure if I like how it looks. I feel like I look older and I don't feel as pretty. And I was finally starting to feel like my face was looking pretty again after loosing the weight. I think it needs to grow out another inch. I'm enjoying the super short hair washing shower time and the fast styling.
