Chopped. Again. - Pretty Real

Chopped. Again.

So you remember here where I revealed my new look.  Oh wait, I'm not a celeb; by revealed  I mean posted a few photos. Well even though I loved it and Rhonda (my stylist at Milan Hair Studio) is amazing, I needed to go all the way.  I took Rhonda's advice and "lived with it," but I wanted more.  Short hair is addictive!  I swear I want to go shorter every time I go in there (and I have).  Well this was my inspiration this time around:

You have to realize my nervousness at posting a HALLE BERRY (one of the most beautiful women alive in my opinion) photo next to my picture.  No one can say I don't aim high, that's for sure.

My hair may not be as versatile as hers...nor my features as gorgeous...but I somehow convinced myself that I could pull this off.

and this did me in.  I saw this photo at the grocery store while waiting to check out, immediately took a picture, and FB messaged it to my stylist with the caption: "I'm ready!"  

And here is the final result.

Mine is still a bit longer than hers...and this was taken the day after I got it cut so it hadn't quite "settled," yet.  But I'm super happy with it!

This was a few days's starting to get a life of its own (in a good way).  And that's my hot mama by the way.

I'm glad I did it! I'm still in the honeymoon phase--A cut like this is most likely one I'll love for the first two weeks, tolerate for the 3rd week, and then wait with bated breath for my next relaxer/cut for the following three weeks.  but I don't care. I  had to do it!  Besides, the alternative was shaving the sides and I think most everyone is pretty glad I didn't go that far!  

So what are you doing differently in the hair arena to ring in the New Year?!  I'd love to hear...

  1. Oh my goodness! You are gorg! The short look is great on you. So jealous. I've tried short hair many times and it is not right on me. CUTENESS!

    1. Thank you Jessica!! I was nervous but I eased into it so that helped. I'm surprised short hair won't work on you! I myself love long hair but mine just doesn't grow beyond a I figured I might as well embrace the short and sassy look. ;)
