In case you're new to the blog, I chopped all of my hair off in July '10, just one month before moving from LA to Chicago. It took a while to get to a place where I was comfortable with my short hair and I just never wanted to deal with growing it out. But eight months ago I made the decision to let it grow. I went through a serious awkward stage for a few months, but I've finally reached a length that feels/looks like a real cut. I would love another inch or two and then I'm done. Thanks to Adrienne at Maxine Salon for the great cut!
