New Hairstyle

I've been growing my hair out for a long time and it's finally gotten to the point where it's passed my waist and too long even for me. I end up wearing it up almost every day because it's too hot to have all that hair down, and to wear it up, it's always in a bun since that's pretty much all I could do with it. So I decided to cut it. I had the urge to just chop it off to just below my shoulders, but every time I've done that I've been unhappy with it, and with my wedding only in December, it wasn't worth the risk. So I ended up going with cutting off a good 6 inches. It's still long. Even looking at it now I think I could stand to cut off maybe another 4 inches, but thinking about it gives me anxiety. I have to do this in stages.

Sorry about the before picture, I don't wash my hair before I go to get it cut since I don't want it to be washed twice in one day, so it's a little out of control. If it was straightened you'd be able to tell the actual length. The poor stylist had to lift the chair until it wouldn't go up anymore, and even then she had to squat a little to get to the ends. 

This is the after. I had some shorter layers put in and I'm pretty happy with it. It's so nice to get rid of the dead ends and it looks so much healthier. You should have seen her trying to cut in the layers. Once she put the chair back down, when she lifted up my hair she had to go on her tip-toes to get it to the right spot. Now if only I could talk myself into straightening it more often! I love it when it's straight. It's so polished and sleek.
