I did it! I snipped off seventeen inches of ponytail and committed to a (long) pixie.
Thank you to all who voted on a style! The pixie won 14 to 9 so I just went for it. It has been a huge change, but so far, I love it. I love how quickly it dries and how easy it is to style. The only thing I haven’t figured out yet is what to do with it when it isn’t styled, like right after a workout. I do miss that messy bun on those occasions, but I much prefer having hair that is easily styled more often than wound into a bun. Oh! And I still use too much shampoo! That’s a little annoying. I need to work on that.
p.s. I get to cross of “get to the salon” from my 2013 goal list. Wahoo!
