Chop me up!

Everyone's doing it. It's the "cool" thing to do, post-wedding. And I'm the latest bride to hop on the PWC bandwagon.

PWC?

Post-Wedding Chop, of course! My long hair was getting out of control and it was definitely time to chop it off. Since I moved to the DC area I had to find a new person to do my hair. Luckily I had no problem choosing one because my SIL is an extremely talented stylist who works at a salon only 30 minutes away! I knew she would do a great job and wasn't nervous at all.

Here is a reminder of my crazy, curly hair. This was taken 2 days before the wedding so by the time I cut my hair it was even a bit longer.


And here I am with my beautiful and talented SIL right after the cut!


And a close up (sorry for the not-so-great cell quality):


And curly (this is at a pool party so it's not really "done" to my liking, but you get the idea):


She chopped off a LOT of hair. Probably a good 3-4 inches, I'd say. I'm super happy with it, although I do think I'm going to start growing it out so it's about an inch longer. Then it'll be just about perfect!!

Did you do a PWC? Did you go super short or just a trim?

Ps, narcissistic much, Em? 4 pics of my silly mug in one post...lordy.

  1. Looks great! I so want a PWC but I was asked to donate it for Locks of Love so the PWC is having to wait until October.

  8. Looks SO good! I love it curly! I look awful with short hair or else I'd totally chop mine off and give it to locks of love. It is LONG and hot right now.

  9. It is fantabulous! I love it so much. You are such the cute little doll!

    I did a PWT (trim). It takes me way too many years to grow out long hair so I wasn't about to chop it all off again after all the time I put into getting it this long :)

  12. Nice! Looks cute curly, but very sophisticated straight.

    I know by the time my wedding rolls around I'll be MORE than ready to get my bob back.

  14. Super cute. I like how it frames your face when it's straight.

    I'm so jealous of all these summer cuts! I can't wait for my PWC!

  17. It looks great!

    I so wanted to get more of my hair cut but I could only really get a trim as I need it long to be a bridesmaid in just 3 weeks! After that I think I will chop it a bit anyway!

  18. I said it on Twitter but I wanted to say again how much I love your hair! I'm very jealous of how curly it is, and I think the shorter length looks great.

    Your wedding photos below are SO beautiful.

  19. YES YES YES! I love it! Clearly I PWC'd and then AGAIN even shorter last week. My straightener picked a shitty week to crap out...

  20. I've fallen off the edge of the blog world and all but disappeared, but I've been thinking about you since my wedding, and I just want you to know that I'm so glad your wedding went well! What a ride wedding planning was, huh? But please allow me to offer you my congratulations and to wish you and your new husband all the best in your union! Take care of each other!
