I Did It! Until I Didn't.....

I have been wanting to get my hair cut for over a year now....

Before my appointment, on the way to the salon.
 

I have a photo that I've had in my phone forever and a day and I would look at it to imagine if I could picture my hair that short again but with an edgier feel. And then I saw Arielle's hair from Faintly Masculine and loved her cut as well. So on my trip to New York, I did it. I cut my hair. I was okay with it at first, I wasn't over the moon about it even though strangers would stop me on the street and tell me that they liked it and asked who did it. The stylist at the salon did an excellent job, she talked to me about products and how to achieve an awesome wash and go, which I  was able to achieve once I made I back to Texas. But for some reason I didn't feel like me.
 
It's not the length that concerns me, I've had my hair shorter than this and loved it. I think I either need to get it cut shorter in the back and the sides and leave the front long like it is or let the back grow out a little longer. But until then, I'll be wearing my hair in protective styles (i.e. wigs/weaves) until I decide for sure what I want to do.
 
 
Look who I found on the subway! You're not supposed to take pics there but I begged convinced the Port Authority Officer to please let me take a pic with my boo and she relented.
 
 
I'm a little bummed that I didn't love it but I figure it'll grow back fast or I'll just get it cut shorter.  Has anyone else had this experience?
 
 
 I think that I look like Spike Lee's sister, Joie. But at least she got to sleep with Denzel in Mo' Better Blues...

I really like your hair. Its cute and edgy! But I completely understand when people are not happy with their appearance. No matter the compliments, its a personal feeling.

I've been where you are. When i first got my locs i didn't like them. The woman didn't do them correctly. So i had to start all over...
the best thing is that hair grows back!

I think the hairstyle is cute on you, sassy and funky. However I know the feeling of getting a cut and then not loving it like you thought you would. I am debating now on cutting mine short again even though I have been trying to let it grow because I don't want to regret cutting it especially since it is taking forever for it to grow!!! :-( I have a history of cutting and growing my hair all the time and it grew quicker when I had a relaxer but since I have been natural for 2 years and trying to grow it long for almost a year it seems doesn't want to seem to grow as fast.

When I first cut my hair short, I liked it but I didn't love it. I decided to go shorter with some tweaking and absolutely loved the results. I bet if you just give yourself some time to see what you'd like changed, you'll fall in love with the right version of your style. For the record, it is adorable though.

Gurl please you're a damn ROCK STAR!!! Luv the new haircut! Please please just wear it for a while it might grow on you!!!

Why was I so sure you loved it. That's what I get for reading backwards. I follow it. I've been offsetting this same cut before I saw Arielke's blog. I posted another pix to IG & FB went to the barber and chickened out. So I'm feeling you. Right now my hair is in a protective style that I don't love. I do love having more time to sleep in the AM but I received 3 compliments today. Not good for my ego!! One was I looked like a little girl. Sheesh this hair thing is so overly important but my hurr ain't right my day ain't right :(
