All or Nothing….

That’s what I told my little sister when she asked me if I could go short in stages. “All or nothing,” I said. “Go big or go home,” she responded.

So, why did I do it? Or, to quote so many people when they see my new do for the first time “What possessed you to do such a thing?” Using the word “possessed” suggests I was not of right mind when I decided that this was going to be my new look. Well, my reasons were plenty. These are just a few.

1. I wanted to lose a few lbs and this seemed the quickest way.      2. I’m in the witness protection program.                                                3. Fairies Rock.                                                                                                        4. I slept with gum in my mouth and woke up with it stuck in my hair.                                                                                                                               5. The Keebler Elves were holding auditions.                                             6. I was tired of getting confused with Demi Moore and Courtney Cox.                                                                                                                                7. I passed out on the couch and woke up to Niamh and Finn standing over me with a pair of scissors each. Their smiles were brief.                                                                                                                              8. I wanted to see who my real friends are.

Below are a few snaps of the approach Chloe took to make my dream of looking like the Molly Moon’s Ice Cream Scooper come true.

First, I got some bangs.photo

Next, an 80’s Rocker Mullet photo

Then, a version of a bowl cut.photo

And the final product after I left the salon, went home to change in to my Scrubs, and before I had to run off to work where friends and coworkers made me sweat because of the crowd that formed around me to gasp and gawk and point at me. Really, I could have used about a week off to get used to it before being seen in public.  Its becoming less of a shock to catch my reflection in glass now.photo

Still, it will be a while before I will be comfortable wearing green again.

I LOVE IT! And you've already confirmed that I am NOT polite. And the Peter Pan comparison made me wet my pants a little. And I think you look so insanely adorable, I kind of want to do the same to my hair. But I won't, because now maybe Andre will start gushing over my 'long' blonde locks. It really is fabulous!!!

It sorta makes me hate you because you look gorgeous no matter what. Long hair, short hair, mohawk, whatever, you rock it and you rock it well. You could probably wear a nylon cap over your head and look incredible. Hate.

I love it. And you are way more tinkerbell than peter pan.
