does this hair make my cheeks look big?

a wise man once said to me,

"life favors those who act."

so troy, today i took your words of advice. i've been thinking about, chopping my hair for some time now. but the fear of failure (also known as making my face look rounder than it already does) kept me at bay. i danced around it for several months, even getting a "halfway" cut last time, which i wasn't really happy with. i wasn't happy with it because it wasn't what a really wanted, just a mere idea of it.

i haven't taken a picture yet, because i'm not sure how i feel about it.
but i'll give you an idea of what it looks like:

HA! are you kidding me? please don't tell me you believed that.
what is she thinking?
different subject for a different day.

no, it really looks more like this:

right about the same color now, too.
(though imagine me about 1,000 lbs bigger, a shirt from target on
and with less professional makeup)

because of my natural curl, the look i am hoping to achieve once i shower
and figure out how in the heck to style it is this:

though i'm afraid that once i get going with my diffuser i might look more like this

chubby fingers included.

ben says he really likes it. but you know what? it's not that i don't believe him, but what i think impresses him most is the fact that i took the risk and just did it. no more talking about it. it's done. there's no turning back.

the plane has left the runway, the car has left the parking lot, the broom has swept it off of the floor and thrown it in the garbage can.

so i guess we will just have to see if there are any more pictures of myself posted, or if i go incognito for the next 6 months waiting for "the good ship lollipop" to drop its anchor into a different harbor.

Oh lynsey you are funny!!! I must admit I was a little nervous when I saw the first picture of Kate and thought "oh, please NO" but was very happy when I kept reading. (not only does her hair need help, she is quite obnoxious!) I think Kelly Pickler's hair is super cute and something your cute face could definitely pull off. I want to see pics.

Good for you girl!! That chin length bob is one of my favorites. I think it's hard to go wrong with a classic cut like that. So let's see the picture already!!

I bet the blonde looks great too! Isn't it fun to try new things!? If I had a bunch of money I think I would change my hair color every month just for kicks.

Come us. And I'm SOOOOO glad you did not go with the Kate backwards mullet cut. YIKES!

I love it! Can't wait to see photos of your hair.

Show me already! I can't wait to see it, you'll look darn cute and I must say kudos to you because I am super chicken about chopping mine too...i too struggle with the round face and cheeks! I bet you are adorable! Let us see!!!

OH my heck I feel the EXACT same way as you, I wanted something REALLY dramatic and wanted to chop it but when I cut it, it wasn't what I pictured or really wanted either... I totally pictured a hip and cool short cut and I just look like a mom hair-cut... I've been thinking of getting it cut shorter again but I'm ALSO afraid my cheeks are too big for it!! Ha ha. ANYWAY kudos to you for DOING IT! I so want to see pictures.

I WANT TO SEE IT!!! I am sure it looks adorable. I love that cut.

If only I had straight hair....
