the big chop

Today is the day. 
It's time for the big chop. 

I've never been the person to always have the same hair style, I like change and sometimes I need it.
I've never gone super short(like pixie short), and I don't think I ever will, 
but I've had long straight hair down to my lower back, shoulder length, layered hair, a short blunt bob. 
And now, after sometimes enjoying and other times hating my long hair, it's time to say goodbye.

I'm going back to short.

I've been debating this decision for so long, 
thinking that if I chop it off there will be so much less I can do with my hair. 

Long hair can be worn down, or in top knot, braided or curled. 
Short hair is just short.

But, you see, even though I love all the possibilities long hair gives me, 
in reality I've been wearing my hair exactly the same for days, weeks, months! 
I just don't have the time or desire to style my hair differently every morning, so up in a top knot it's gone.

Until 4 p.m. today. No more top knots for a while on this head!


So, I've been scouring Pinterest, looking for inspiration, and this is what I found:

I'm not sure if I'll dare to go as short as the shortest hair style in the collage
(although that look is so pretty on her- p.s. don't you just love her on 'The Walking Dead'?),
and of course I'm no where near as photogenic as the models you see, but you get the idea. 

It's going to be a big, but very welcome change!

Can't wait to show you the results.

Wish me luck!

Love, Maria


  1. love this and totally can imagine you with this new haircut. I don`t know if it has to do with the spring hormones but I´m also going to cut my hair (short!) and have been thinking the same thoughts- no super easy top knot anymore but some new freedom and style. Can´t wait to see your pictures! many greetings, noni!

  2. cute!! you can totally pull of any hairstyle....I have been debating as well and maybe after seeing you (EEEEK!!!) I will do the same!! :) enjoy the haircut - I always love sitting in a chair for an hour and its total peace....;) xo
