Last weekend was Ken's Graduation and his sister came for the celebration, I asked her if she could give me the hair cut we had talk about ever since Easter. I was super excited! plus she is a teacher now at her Cosmetology school, so I really trusted her to do this job, she knows what she's doing ;)

I haven't cut my hair as short as I decided to go for more than 4 years, so it was a very extreme decision for me, but I really wanted to donate my hair to Locks of Love, I read about it the first time I cut my hair, but since I was in Chile I just gave it to the salon I had my cut, after it was done and read carefully I realized I could have save it and donate it later, so donation was my goal when I started to grow my hair again :)

So here it is, just like Curly! my before and after:

I am still not used to have my hair so short, and after my morning shower I am still in shock when I look at the mirror with almost no hair, because I think I look like a boy, but I don't regret cutting it at all, I love the fact that someone out there is going to be really happy with it!

So what do you think?
