New Hair

Last week before setting off for memorial day weekend I had been in search for the perfect haircut. I knew I wanted to go shorter in order to make my summer easier. I was torn because I work out a lot and pull it up into a pony tail so I couldn't see a short style that I couldn't get out of my face. After much searching on the internet and some discussions with my hair stylist I chopped a lot off. My hair is very thick and it feels so much better now. I can't tell you how many headaches I would get even with just below my shoulder hair. I don't really have a good picture of the back but here is my before and after. What do you think?? Did I make a good choice? I figured with going to Disney and water parks this summer that it would be easier anyway. I can grow it back for Fall, too. My hair hasn't been this short for a long time, maybe not ever! Oh and I went to class last night and pulled just the top back and it was fine. I can also still do a headband.

What do you all think? Better?

One more thing I forgot to mention I've been tweaking my blog and I added some new pictures a patriotic home tour to the sidebar. Some of you have asked about new pictures.

Take care,



  1. Hi Carey,
    I love your new haircut. My youngest works in a hair salon...she permed and cut my hair this past Wednesday. It is shorter than I have had in a while, but I love it.
    Oh, I really like your redo in your last the color you painted it.
    Have a great weekend.
    hugs, Cindy

  2. I love it, so updated looking and it's just the style that you can grow back if you want:) My daughter and Sydney both have such thick hair too!
    Have a great day and do so enjoy your blog!

    I love your haircut and you are so cute. I have super thick hair & it's normally in a pony just to keep it out of the way. Have a great weekend.
    I'm off to check out the home tour you posted.

  4. Carey you look great. Very stylish hair cut. I wish I could pull a look off like yours. I will be getting my summer perm soon just to have a hairdo I can pull up and go with. My hair is poker straight and lifeless. The heat and humidity does a real job on it in the summer.
    Have a great weekend.
