So, anyone who has me on facebook or instagram yesterday already knows this but, I donated my hair yesterday finally! I had been waffling on it for months and decided that with school/work starting up again soon it only makes sense to have it quite a bit shorter as I wear it up everyday while working anyhow. I can't lie, I already miss my long tresses a bit, but there are so many fun things I can try with my hair now! My first order of business is going to be trying out curlers to see if I can get those nice 40's waves I've been wanting :). I got it cut straight across with just a tiny little bit of face framing at the bottom (barely though haha). I'm not a bangs girl and even though I am extremely curious to see how I'd look with them I know I would regret that one for sure.
The ponytails were about 12 inches of hair, and I sent it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which you can read more about here! I sent it to Locks of Love when I donated in 8th grade, but three years ago and this time around I decided to do Pantene's program. 8 inches is the minimum so even if you don't have hair as long as I did you can still donate. I'm sure in about three more years we will go through this song and dance yet again and I'm very thankful I have the ability to grow my hair and donate it to those who need it more than I do!
It looks super blunt in these photos right after the cut, but it looks better now that it has sat for a day :)

And isn’t long hair a woman’s pride and joy? For it has been given to her as a covering.
