NEW Short Blonde Hair


As of a few day’s ago, I have short blonde hair. I have always been a blondie, but 4 years ago I decided to go dark. And, then of course, as time went on, I transitioned to a bazillian different versions of dark hair. I am not one to really ever be satisfied with my hair, the moment I get it done, I am already thinking about what I can do different the next time. I am not talking major hair changes, but subtle differences in color and texture. 

Transitioning from long hair to short blonde hair

But I was kind of getting sick of the brown long hair thing and made a pretty drastic decision – as far as hair goes – to chop it off and go back to blonde (thanks, Beyonce, for the inspiration); I now have short blonde hair. Currently, I am indifferent to this decision. Actually, I am kind of freaking out… majorly freaking out. My long hair that I spent years growing is now in the trash can. Awesome.

Changing my hair from long brown to short blonde

Here are my reasons for cutting my locks into short blonde hair:

1) I thought it would be easier as a mom with kids. That was a wrong assumption. I can’t throw it up into an easy top knot anymore.

2) My family has been pressuring me for a few years now to go back to blonde. I totally caved.

3) The ends of my hair had seen better days. It needed to be cut…just maybe not 6 inches shorter.

4) Who doesn’t want to look like queen Bey a little bit? Well, that was a fail.

5) Ombre’s are on their way out and short hair is coming in. I wanted to be with the current times.

In all reality, I know I will get use to this major hair change, but for now, every time I look in the mirror, I am questioning my decision. The good new is that hair grows… just not fast enough.

Hopefully between now and a few more inches of longer hair, I will get used to this short blonde hair change and want to keep it around. For now though, I am in process of trying out product for short hair, I like the textured look, and the Oribe Apres Beach Wave Shine and Hairspray gives it to me. I am thankful for that!

Have you ever made a hair change that you questioned?
