After months of debating and agonizing over many a split end, I decided to bite the bullet and say goodbye to my long locks for the first time in, oh, about 15 years. Having long hair has been such a huge part of my teenage and adult identity, but when holding onto that length comes at the price of having ragged, damaged hair, sometimes it's just better to let go. And you know what? Cutting my hair has turned out to be just as cathartic and satisfying as purging my closet or doing a massive spring clean — who knew! And although the style may be a work in progress (my bangs need to hurry up and grow out!), I'm excited to see where it goes... #shorthairdontcare

  2. Loving the new do! I got a "lob" 2 years ago after a LIFETIME of long hair. Haven't looked back since!
