sometimes, you just gotta do something different.

I know. I know. ya'll told me not to chop it off. but, seriously, it needed it and sometimes? sometimes you just gotta do something different. and it was, as my friend said to me, "approaching Tangled lengths...". it was getting that way. it's not a pixie cut though. so you can breathe.
soooo, whatcha think? in the pictures above, it had been straightened, but now it's free and wild and fresh and completely unrestrained. can't wait to see what it does when I put rags in it.
and now! the mac is back. so the q & a vlog will be coming up soon. and I will get back to more ordered and interesting and proper posts as well. wait...what? since when did I ever do those? forget what I just said.

love you all.
be good, tell me your haircut experiences and do a happy dance for me.

p.s. I have some very, very, very, very exciting news to tell you all soon. like, very exciting.


  1. AAAHHHHH I GOSHBUBBLING LOVE IT! and i can still fishtail it! score!

  2. Oooooo,cute! You look so adoreable. I wish I could grow my hair as long as you had it before you cut it (I'm working on it.) :)
    Anywho, love your new cut.

  3. I LOVE it! And I'm super duper excited about that news you have to share :)

  4. I loved your hair, but this is still very you and BEAUTIFUL.
    Once I chopped all of my "golden locks" off for someone in particular- never ever ever will I ever do that again. I'd much rather look like a hippie than have short hair. really.

  5. Even though your hair is beautiful very long, I love this new cut! Very pretty!

  6. LOVE IT!!!!! it's awesome:) change is good. I have gone from long locks to a shorter do, and it was really fun, and less stress:)

  7. I love it! I'm pretty sure that anything you do to your hair would look good... maybe not a mohawk.. that would just be weird... :)

  8. love your hair! so so pretty.(:

  9. Love your hair! Seriously need to get mine cut. :P

    can't wait!

    ps- giveaway soon at my blog!

  10. Jess, this is just simply marvelous! You are adorable, and I think you have a head of hair that could look marvelous any way. :)

  11. GAHHHH!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The layers are amazing!!! Why can't I have YOUR hair stylist, for goodness sake???? I told the hairstylist awhile back I wanted bunches of short layers all the way down, but she was like, 'no, it'll make your hair look stringy' or something. I'm like seriously?!

    But anyhoo, I deffo love your hair to bits now!! Not that I didn't love it before, cuz I DID! :)


  12. oh my goodness darling, you're beautiful!!! ♥

  13. Your hair looks gorgeous in both the before and after pictures. :)
    My hair is always short. I think the longest I've had it since I got it cut short was about two inches past my shoulder. ;)

  14. Yay for new hairdos! :) I love going to salons to get my hair done all new and stuff. So fun. :)

    Your hair is beautiful! Now I wanna see it when it's not straightened to see how your hair lays with its natural wave.

    I'm excited to hear your exciting news!



  15. it is so cute, Jess! ;)i like the new style. wow. you have gorgeous hair, girl. and exciting news? fun-ness. do tell. :)

    ps-you are pretty darn cute too. just sayin'.

  16. I'm split. I loveloveloved your long hair. it was gorgeous. Buuuuut, it looks absolutely adorable now. So.
    Haircut story: Every. Single. Time I cut my hair, I cried like Jo in Little Women. And then moved on. Swore I'd never cut it again. And then cut it again. I went from long to short and layered, to long, to bob, to long...yeha, you get the idea. :D I'm pretty indecisive.


  17. okay, okay. so 1, you're gorgeous, 2, your previous hair was gorgeous, and 3, your new hair is beyond gorgeous! have fun with it :) can't wait to hear the news!

  18. Oo, pretty!! I love the layers. :)
    My only interesting haircut experience happened when I went to a bargain salon. I asked for a trim for my fairly long hair....and got a short bob. The worst part being that one side was two inches shorter than the other. Oh, and I neglected to mention that it was my birthday.

    Super curious about the news!!


  19. Love it!!


  20. Love the new haircut! It's so different, but just as beautiful as your old style! :)

  21. I'm gonna risk being a total outcast here and say that I'm not very fond of the new cut... but, of course, you are still absolutely gorgeous, dear =] xoxo

  22. awh. you're cute. and it does look fresh and new and free. your hair is just gorgeous anyway. I need a haircut.....

  23. Jess... I'm heartbroken. You're still your adorable little self, but I kid you not, a lump rose in my throat when I saw you cut your hair. Grow it out again, please? *hopeful puppy dog face*

    I might forgive you someday. ;) And I would like to hear your news....

  24. Yes, Sometimes you just gotta do something new!

    I like your new hairdo! Does it feel good to have something new or do you miss you long hair?

  25. i LOVE it! you look so pretty with straightened hair :)

  26. you dear are utterly gorgeous. yeah sometimes you just gotta get out of your comfort zone and do something drastically different. my hair was about as long as yours in that first photo and i had the stylist cut it to just under my jawline. yeah i know, crazy right? but i loved it...for a little while. after a few months, i started growing it out again. :) anyway, your hair is beautiful either way.
