The Stages of Getting a Haircut

Over the course of my life, I feel as though I have made very few large decisions. However, when it came to cutting 5 1/2 inches off, the decision happened so quickly I barely remember the process. Even though it would seem I regret my decision to cut my hair, I actually really love it and am happy that I decided to chop it off. However, the process was a real roller coaster that I feel others could relate to so I thought I would share it with y’all today.


First, you see your hair inspiration.


Then, you get excited and fall into a Pinterest hole of equally cute hairstyles.


Get super excited, you want the haircut so bad you could cut your hair yourself! (but you don’t.)


You sleep on the idea, hoping that sleep will make you forget about the idea all together.


But you wake up just as excited as you were the night before.


Adrenaline rushing, you make the appointment, as soon as they have time of course.


Sitting outside the salon in your car, you debate over whether you are prepared to cut off what you have worked so hard for.

The next thing you know you are in the chair and the hairdresser is working away.


She shows you the job she has done, it is too late now.


And it is a little shorter than you’d hoped…


But hair grows back right?


You stare at your new do’. Your already large head looks to be ballooning with this haircut.


You head home, calculating how long it will take to grow back the 5 inches you had snipped. (too long)


You finally come to enjoy your new hair style when you find a new style you want, and the process starts all over again.

  1. I’ve always had long hair, so everytime I do a trim I always take 2-3″ off. Everyone makes a big deal of it, except for me. LOL.
