Rumble in the Bumble

Hair is a big deal to a girl.  Don't believe me?  Just ask Rapunzel.  Most girls have had a scarring haircut experience that altered them for life.  Mine happened in 7th grade.  With hair at mid-chest length, I went into the salon and asked for a trim - just an inch to an inch and a half off, I said.  I walked out in tears.  She had given me a boy cut with a rat tail.  I vowed to keep my hair shoulder-length or longer forevermore.

That all changed last night when I walked into Bumble and Bumble.  I said I wanted something a little different, but nothing too crazy.  Somehow that turned into a much much shorter 'do.  This time, I didn't walk out crying.  I'm a little scared because I'm not sure how to style it myself, but I'm up to the challenge.  Not to toot my own horn (ok, maybe I'm tooting a little bit), but I'm pretty proud of myself.  I'm not sure what it is about hair, but it is very closely linked to a girl's identity; ergo, I'm a whole new woman now?  I still can't believe I went through with such a big change because I very rarely throw caution to the wind like this.  I celebrated this milestone by grabbing a burger and a drink at PJ Clarkes post-cut.  Check out my transformation below:
