hooray for haircuts



Outfit Details: 
cotton lace tee - c/o Rebecca Taylor 
belt - Anthropologie (old) 
skirt - Topshop 
Nothing But Trouble heels - c/o Seychelles
Payton glasses - c/o Lookmatic
lipstick - MAC Captive

First, since I happen to be wearing a new cotton lace blouse and a cotton belt, I figured this would be a good opportunity to remind you to keep voting in Cotton's Road to the Runway. We're down from 48 to 24 finalists, and the remaining contestants need your help in deciding who will be accompanying us to South Beach for Cotton's 24 Hour Runway Show. Secondly, I finally got a haircut! So friends and family who have been listening to me threaten to shave my head on a daily basis, fret not. That urge has been suppressed.

I often get comments about how I should wear my hair down more often. You're not the only ones who think that; my friends and family are always on my case about it, too. I have this weird thing about wearing my hair down - I don't like the feeling of hair on my neck, so I end up putting it in an updo halfway through the day or sooner. I'm a little strange, what can I say? But since I just got my hair cut and colored (by Tim and Flores at Arrojo), I've decided to wear it down a little more often. It feels a lot lighter without all the extra length, and the shorter layers up top make it so that I can roll out of bed and it will still look cool. Hooray for haircuts!

  7. Love the new hair! I'm like you, though, I can't stand feeling hair on my neck. I usually wear it down in the morning to keep my ears and neck warm, then put it up as soon as I get inside.

  13. It's so funny because I'm the opposite - I pretty much only wear my hair down and can't stand to wear it up unless I have to! Your hair looks great... I always love the feeling after a fresh hair cut!

  16. I think the haircut looks great, and the color too. A little darker, right? Maybe it's just the light in the pictures. The outfit is really beautiful and girly. Just my cup of tea.

  19. I really like your new haircut! Your hair looks wonderful up or down. I usually only wear my hair down...I feel comfortable that way lol. Don't know why.

  21. You look great! I love the shoes. I'm the same way about my hair. I'm a former gymnast, so I became used to wearing it up all the time.

  28. I'm the opposite, I almost never wear my hair up. I wish I could put my hair up beautifully like you do, so if you can, why not! It does look lovely down though with your new cut.

    I love the colour of your shoes!

  32. Your hair looks gorgeous down. I am the same way though - I get annoyed that my hair is in the way and after a few hours, I've put it up in a bun.

  36. I'm in desperate need of a cut. My stylist moved to Joshua Tree in August and I haven't had a cut since. Hard to find someone you trust!

    1. It really is! I looooved my stylist in Florida but had a hard time finding someone I really clicked with in New York. I'm lucky I found Tim!

  37. Your Rebecca Taylor cotton lace tee looks lovely and your new haircut looks nice too.

  38. Love the cut and the color :) So cute and edgy. Trust me though, suppress the urge to shave it.. way, way down. I shaved the side of my head a long time and while I LOVED it, it's a bitch and half to grow back.

  40. Love the hair! I know just what you mean, if I am leaning over paperwork or a project I absolutely cannot stand to have my hair down! I usually bun it with a pencil so when I take it back down I don't have awkward creases.Love the layers!

  48. I kind of had a tweensy freak-out when I read the title, I was hoping you didn't chop off your raven locks, but... this hairstyle is BEAUTIFUL! (And don't ever joke about shaving your head haha)

  50. I love love love the layers. You'll probably notice that your hair will dry a lot faster and easier to style. You look great!

  51. Wear what you want, when you want because you are the only one living in your own skin so you know what feels best. xo

  54. Trust me, you're not the only one...I can't stand my hair touching my neck either. My friends keep telling me to wear it down but it just ends up in a top knot in an hour. Love the hair cut btw!

  55. At first I was thinking "Nooooo! She cute her beautiful hair!! =O" But then saw how adorable your new length looks and I'm ok now ;)

  57. Haircuts are great! It's always such a happy event to go to a hairstylist and get pampered :) I always feel like getting a haircut is like losing weight! You just feel instantly amazing :)
