It's a NEW me!
I just went..

Last Thursday I built up the nerve to chop an entire ELEVEN (11) inches off of my wavy, blonde hair. 
This type of stuff hits me in spurts. 
I've been in dire need of some color on my dark roots & I honestly just can't keep up with them every 8 weeks or so. So, I went ahead and hit the dark streak again. 
And I love it, really I do.

Do I not look like a totally different person?

Ok, so..Why 11 inches, you ask?
I've always wanted to donate my long hair to the Locks of Love foundation.

"Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis."

If you've never heard of this organization, you can read more about it here.

You literally braid or tie your hair back with a pony tail holder, measure 10-11 inches, and snip.
Sounds so simple, right?

There's documentation that you print and fill out from the Locks of Love website.
Once completed, you put your hair in a plastic bag & place it inside a mailing envelope!
And BAM, you have just helped out a needy child!

I feel so "fall-ish" now!


  1. I love it. You look great. I went dark a few weeks ago and I love it too. It's so fun to do something different :)

  2. i love it, cait! :) i was at Rach's getting my hair done & Meredith was there also. She stated you went that morning to chop it off & go brown! i've always loved brown on you. it works really well with your skin tone! :)

    loved that you donate to locks of love. i have a little girl I {still} cut and she grows it out JUST to for me to cut it off and send it in! GREAT cause! :)

    You're beautiful!
