Beautiful Lengths: Makeover Weekend!

I have always wanted to donate my hair to locks of love. I just either panic and never make the cut, or just cut 1-2 inches at a time. My hair has been long for as long as I can remember. Well this weekend, I finally made the plunge!! My hair dresser told me that locks of love actually sells their wigs to cancer patients, where as Pantene Beautiful Links donates their wigs. So I chose Pantene over locks of love! 

Here are the pictures I showed my stylist: 
So What Do You Think? Long or Short? Which is a better fit for me?
One of the guys at work just asked if my hair got caught in a propeller while I was away. I was going to do a work trip recap, but on that note, I'm out for today. PEACE.

  9. It looks really really good! I'm always back and forth between long and short hair, and can never decide which one I like best. As soon as I grow it out, I usually chop it all off again.

  40. LOVE the new hair!!! And I have totally used the same Mandy Moore photo for a hair but before ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I freaking LOVE it!! And I love you for donating your lovely, long locks :) I used to have dreadlocks that were realllllly long, and when it came time to cut them, no one wanted them as a donation (understandable). I got really sad, then decided to raise money by asking people to sponsor me to cut them. I raised about $500 and donated it straight to the Make a Wish Foundation. I love that we can help others with our hair <3

  62. Wow what a wonderful thing to do, you look great with short hair.
    I have always wanted to do something like that but I just don't trust my face, I don't think it could pull of short hair as its far far to round!
    I think maybe this is something I should look into doing.
    Thanks for the idea.
    Love Gi

  65. It looks AMAZING!!! Of course you look great both ways, but holy cow. Bombshell-status. I donated my locks back in the day--17 inches. It was pretty liberating.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Love the new do! Guys are idiots, lol. That's so great you could donate, and I had no idea Locks of love sells them! Ick, glad you could do Pantene!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love the new do! I like both, long and short on you. So maybe you can grow you hair long again to donate again? Haha. I didn't know Locks of Love sells their wigs...glad you choose Pantene. I'll have to remember that if I ever have hair long enough to donate.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Of course you look beautiful with both long and short hair, but I love the shorter look! (And if I didn't, I totally would lie and say I did, because hair takes a freakin' long time to grow back).

    ReplyDelete
  69. FREAKING LOVE IT. Like, really freaking love it.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love the new look! The hair style looks so cute on you!

  71. Love it! I have a question. Your hair looks like it was highlighted on the cut off parts. I thought you can't donate when it's highlighted? I looked it up because I was thinking of donating but figured I can't because I've gone blonde with highlights.

    ReplyDelete
  72. It looks great long or short! I also donated my hair to Beautiful Lengths. It's a great program :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love the short hair! Looks great!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  75. It looks FABULOUS! I've done this twice now. It's such a nerve-racking (at first) feeling, and then it's just so exciting.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I know I'm late to the game on this, but your hair looks so fun and sassy! I love the waves! And you donated to a great cause, so its totally worth it. Good for you!
