So I decided it was finally time to chop of some of the mess, as it was practically turning into dreadlock from too many split ends. I asked the guy to trim off not more than 3-4 inches. Flash forward to 45 minutes later: I now have EIGHT inches less than I started with. I’m getting used to it, but I was most definitely not prepared to part with quite so much! Pardon the crappy photos, but it’s difficult to get decent shots of your own absurdly long hair in a car in a busy parking lot without looking too awkward!
