Chop Till You Drop

Life is short…. and now, so is my hair.

This weekend I made the spontaneous decision to chop off 7 inches of my hair. The high lasted a total of 10 minutes before I was hit with haircut remorse. Everyone has been there. Sitting in the chair with your stylist asking you “what do you think of your new hair honey”  and you holding back tears while answering “omgggggg I love it.” All in all, after sending a few desperate texts to close friends waiting for their seal of approval, I was happy with my decision.

The experience at Atelier Salon in Santana Row was great! For first time visitors there is a great Groupon deal (linked below). The session included an quick consultation, oil massage, shampoo, cut and style. This salon is branched off of Aveda, so some of the stylists are still students. Though at times this makes me nervous, I found all the stylists working there to be extremely friendly and professional.

I will keep everyone updated on my short hair journey. If anyone has short hair tips PLEASE send them my way. For now, I am excited to be able to wash my hair without getting arm cramps (gotta love that thick Indian hair). It seems like a fun way to enter spring/summer and I can’t wait to experiment different products/styles.

To all the ladies who are on the fence about a drastic hair cut, my advice would be to go for it. I spent months pinning short hair pics on my “hair inspo” boards but eventually just had to take the plunge. At the end of the day it is just hair and will grow back (thank you argan oil)
