Growing, growing, growing...

I haven't had a haircut in quite some time. I think maybe my last one was sometime this spring, but in all honesty, I really can't remember. It's one of those things that I kept meaning to do, but never got around to. Then it was getting so long that I figured I may as well keep growing it out, so that when I do finally get it cut, I can donate it to Locks of Love. Locks of Love is a wonderful non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children that suffer from long-term medical hair loss. In order for them to be able to use the hair, it must be 10 inches from tip to tip.

I typically prefer to keep my hair short, so it can be a challenge to get it to 10 inches before I chop it off. But I figure if I made it through the summer without cutting it, I can make it a month or two more. And as you can see in the picture, I'm getting close! And yes, I really am planning to go that short! I'm thinking maybe a super short angled bob a la Louise Brooks, but we'll see.

Awesome! I donated my hair about four years ago now. I kept it short for three and then decided to grow it back out. Now, I am deciding how much longer I can keep it going before chopping it off...and donating again, of course. :)

Jaime, that's pretty much what I did too! I chopped off and donated 12" after my wedding in 2004, then I kept it short for a few years. Good luck with your growing!

Renee, awww, thanks! You're too sweet! I'm actually not minding it long too much right least now that it's starting to get cooler, I can wear it down more. It's amazing how hot hair can make you. :D
