Snip, Snip!

After months of telling people, "I'm going to cut my hair...short!" I finally summoned the courage to do it this weekend. Upon texting Steph the news, she immediately responded with, "BLOG ABOUT IT!"

Before: Long hair with grown-out-used-to-be-awesome-faded peekabo highlights.

For Torontonians, I had the cut done at Civello, right by the MTV building north of Bloor. It was actually my first time there, which was risky considering how nervous I was about losing my long hair. But, my stylist, Carmelo, was really awesome. I put pictures on my iPod to show him the cut I wanted (pictured below) and it turned out really good. With the haircut also came a scalp massage and a little bit of makeup application, which was fun. The atmosphere of Civello was really fun and laidback - I'm definitely going back, despite it being a tad pricey.



I chose the Katie Holmes bob because a) it looks awesome on her and b) it totally made her look like she grew up some. And as you can from the picture above, I kind of have a baby face...

After: The Katie Holmes Bob

Surprisingly, I really liked it right away. It's a little different than Katie's, but mostly because my hair's so thick, and I have a lot more of it than her. I think I look more my age - with the cut, I don't think I'd be so easily mistaken for a fourteen year old. Short hair, as I realized today, is much easier to look more polished with, outfit-wise. However, I'll miss my long, pretty hair too...especially curling it.

I think my next cut will be even shorter!


(As always, apologies for the terrible Photo Booth quality, especially for the before image - it was rushed, the night before I got it done.)
