My new hair cut!

I finally got my hair cut late last week! Thanks so much for all of your input in this! I took a photo in to a girl from my church (e-mail me if you are local and need a great stylist!) and I think she did a great job.

So, here are the before pix:


And, drumroll please ~ the after pictures:
I'm really enjoying this cut so far!
It was a very positive experience and has been a boost!
When I've fixed it, it has turned out fluffier - but I keep referring to this picture to help me get the hang of it!

Your new cut is very cute!

Mrs. Sheila said...

Love it! I have a similiar cut! I have found if I use my fingers while drying it, it doesn't get "poofy"! LOL Looks great on you!

Ami said...

It looks so good! That's the haircut I had a few years ago, and I keep thinking I should go back. But my hair is really long now and I can't bring myself to part with it. I remember it being so easy to fix. It really looks great on you!

Julie said...

Isn't a new haircut so energizing! Your hair looks great - great cut, and it's shiny!!

Tracy said...

It looks Great Monica! My first thought was "wow! She looks so much like her sister with her new haircut!" How rejuvinating!

Michele said...

Very cute. I use a flat iron to take care of any poofiness since my hair is very wavy.

Cheryl said...

Monica,
the new cut looks great on you! I have something similiar and I love it. It's a nice length where it's short enough to have some body, but still have some length to make me happy.

Long time reader who rarely comments...so cute!!! I love your hair! Adorable and looks fairly easy to style and maintain--which makes it even more of a winner! Thanks for your writing--I enjoy reading what you're learning (which challenges me) as well as seeing your many fun ideas.

Oh-it looks great!

Mrs. K said...

Very cute! I see your mom and Rachel both in you with your new cut. So cute.

Brie said...

Very cute style on you! Never underestimate the power of a flat iron to help tame the puffiness. Trust me - I'm a naturally curly haired girl who loves wearing her hair straight but is terrible with a blowdryer!

It looks great!!

angie said...

I have a very similar style, but with bangs. I love how you can tuck your front pieces behind your ears. Wish I had the tenacity to grow out my bangs. I bet this put a bounce in your step. You look good...and ready for Spring!

Wife of Rob said...

Monica! It's PRECIOUS! You look fabulous! I love what a "new do" does for us!

Big hugs

RT said...

Super cute, Monica! Doesn't a good cut make you feel like a new woman?

LynnMarie said...

Love it! Makes you look so young!

mary bailey said...

Very cute and stylish! Be sure to be good to yourself and make a point to go back in for regular trims. As moms we tend to put ourselves last.

Sarah said...

That is so cute!

I was thinking about getting my hair trimmed soon. Hmmm... Now I may have to think about going for a different style too.... :)

Question: any special tips/tricks to how you do your part?

Rachel said...

Very Adorable Monica-
Haircuts definitely are a great boost!
I love this cut on my daughter as well...

Very Classic.
(plus your hair color looks nice with the cut)

Anna said...

You look so great! I really like the style you chose, it frames your face and makes you look really nice!

Angela said...

Monica, this is such a cute do for you! I am partial to long hair, but when I saw the pics, I had to admit, it was a great choice! Plus, you have the option of growing it long again if you ever want a change again! :)

Elise said...

Looks great!! Such a cute style for you!!

Oh, have you tried blow drying it with one of those things that is circular, but flattens out at the end?? I believe it makes your hair smoother when you blow dry it downwards.

I love it!! Looks so good on you.
