In Ruby Slippers I tell the story of cutting my hair as an act of defiance, sort of like when Anne of Green Gables dyes her hair "black" (it ends up green) announcing her hatred for her hair.
Well, it's been several years since I've sheared my hair off, but today....
I cut my hair again, only this time with a delight in my hair, coupled with a longing to do something different. Being autumn, it seemed a good time to lose a few locks, like the trees are losing their leaves.
I love the new stage of life I'm in (I just turned 29) and I wanted my hair to go with it.
So I've decided to post the before and after pics, to share that I love the way, as my hair stylist, Emily says, hair can be a fluid art form, and I love feeling light and free and completely me.
I enjoyed watching Emily re-sculpt my hair. I loved seeing her creativity in the result.
Hope you do something marking this new season of sloughing off the old and looking forward to the new.
