I did something a little wacky and spontaneous yesterday. It’s something I have been threatening to do all summer, but for one reason or another, I always chickened out and never followed through. However, everyone has their limit, and enough was enough. I couldn’t take it any longer. I was tired of it all, so I got rid of it.
My hair, that is. This is the most recent image I have of it down, (Sept 5th) and it’s not even straight. Add another couple of inches for when it’s straight and well, it was getting ridiculous.
The main reason it was getting on my nerves, was because runs were becoming a nightmare (how do you long haired gals do it in the heat?!?) Not only was it hot (my hair is VERY thick!) But it I kept breaking ponytail holders. I would wear two at a time, and my hair still would end up coming out/breaking the dang things. Not to mention, my ponytail was so long that when I wore tank tops or ran in just my sports bra, I would sweat and it would stick to me. Ew. With lots of races and long training runs coming up, I knew I needed more than a trim, or else I may go Britney Spears crazy and shave my whole head.
So, it is done.
I know it’s not exactly “short” for some standards, but for me it is. I haven’t had my hair this short in 2.5 years, and it barely fits back into a ponytail. I’m sure I will miss long hair, but I know I will be able to get ready faster, be more efficient, and it’s more ideal for running. Sad when that’s what helps determine my hair style right? Oh well! I was wanting a new look for fall, so here it is. Time to experiment with some styling now I guess.

QOTD: Do you cut or change your hair with the seasons? Had the same style for a long time?
