Cut It Out (See Jane Snip)

A drastic haircut on the heels of fall is something I've been doing since I was a kid.  There are several embarrassing school photos in which I debuted my new 'do.  If you think I'd show these photos, you're wrong!  Just kidding, this one is way too hilarious to keep to myself:

Second grade was a complex year; I had to get glasses (I went for the subtlest pair) and my mom tried to make me feel better with either a makeover or pierced ears.  Suffice to say, I chickened out on the pierced ears--and isn't it obvious that I chose the makeover?

While my Laverne & Shirley 'do wasn't the most flattering, there's something to be said about starting off the school year on a new foot.  After all, you want to come back from summer vacation as an improved version of yourself (prime example above).  The past two Augusts, I've chopped off several inches of hair (2012 and 2013) and 2014 will be no exception.  Here's my inspiration below:

  1. Awwww that's a pretty fabulous school photo!! :)

    I also love changing up my hair for fall. I'm not sure if it's just because it's a new season, or if it's a habit from childhood. A new school year was always that nice fresh start that you have to actively try to attain in adulthood.

  2. Very timely as I just booked a hair appt seconds before reading this. :) Love the 2nd grade school picture. I have many awkward school photos to rival that one… a personal fav was 4th grade when my mom allowed me to perm my hair before school started. So gross!

  3. I think I'm going to do the same!
    probably with bangs!
    My childhood photos are really worse than yours!:)

  4. Hehe, I usually do my chop before or after Christmas. But Fall was always the time for makeovers when I was still in school.

  5. I'm thinking of changing my hair for fall too! I've been looking for lob inspiration, and these pictures are perfect! Thank you!

  6. Oh man! At least it was second grade! Pretty sure I had the same pair of glasses except in 6th grade:).

  7. No at all dissimilar to my second grade picture - feathered bangs and Laura Ashley jumper represent!!
