Bucket of Success: Get a BoyCut and Rock It.

Hey all! Well, if you haven't been on here recently, you may have missed a very recent post about my bucket list goal, so check that out. Today, however, I am here to share a successful endeavor from one of the goals on that list, which in case you can't tell from this post title, was the "Get a Boy Cut and Rock It" goal.

To premise this, let me tell you a little bit about my hair. First, I am a blonde, with a lot of natural high and low lights. Second, my hair is fine, but I have a lot of it. Honestly, I have multiple heads worth of hair... And third, it grows super duper fast and super duper healthy. Seriously, I can go a year and a half without getting any split ends whatsoever if I'm not doing things that damage it frequently.

I do not say this to brag, (let's be honest, all I have nothing to do with the process), but simply to recognize, that I am extremely blessed with the hair that I have. I know it, and I recognize it. Because I know my hair is a blessing, I make a point to donate it to locks-of-love, when it gets long enough. I did this once in 5th grade, once my sophomore year, and most recently this last Wednesday. In the fifth grade, I barely had 10 inches, so I was left with a short bob. At this time I learned, that I really don't like short hair, at least not on myself. So the next time I donated, I had 16 inches to give, and my hair was shoulder length…

So I went from this..
 To this….
Which was (I thought) pretty drastic.

This time, I knew my hair was getting long, but I wanted it to grow out a little more, so I could have basically the same end length, but with just a little less of a donation. Then I heard about the BYU locks of love drive… and I thought, "That's a good cause, I guess I could deal with having shorter hair for a bit." Then I thought, forget that, "I'm getting a check off my bucket list!"

And thus, this is what we have.

The shortest my hair has been since I was about four years old. It actually looks a bit longer in this picture because of my bangs and the tilt 
If you told me even a week ago that this was going to happen, it's have said you were crazy...
but evidently, I am a little crazy...
So I got a boy cut, and there is has been and will continue to be, plenty of rocking it.
