Handsome, Suave. Beautiful, Cute.

Those were just a few compliments my beau and I received upon showing up to a work meeting last night with our new hair. New hair you say? Why yes, just take a look at the difference!

Before, with the typical 'I hate having my picture taken' face.

C, getting his hair chopped off!

One last look at my long, long hair I've been growing for two years.

And, finally, AFTER!!

You can't really tell, because I couldn't seem to get a good shot of the back of my hair, but it's almost as short as C's! I modeled my hairstyle after Rooney Mara in 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'; which you also cannot tell by my camera-phone photos, but someday soon when I get my camera back, I'll take better photos with it and hopefully you can see.

When the hair-stylist looked at our hair, she said C had about 8-10 inches and I had about 16-18 inches. We're going to try and senc C's hair to Locks of Love, but they wouldn't take mine because it was dyed. (Even though that was almost three years ago, haha.) It stinks I couldn't donate mine, but we're hoping to be able to donate C's!

So...what do you think? Let me know! I'm still in a bit of shock about my hair, but I do like it! haha When I told C about a month ago that I wanted to cut off all my hair, he said that he wanted to do it with me, that it would be something fun and good to do together. Later on he also said that he could tell I was nervous and thought that maybe if I saw him cutting his hair, it would make it a bit easier for me. This is quite a big deal for him because he hasn't cut his hair in almost ten years! His last haircut was right before his senior year in high school; crazy, right? It's been longer than ten inches, I've seen photos of his hair all the way down to the bottom of his back! When we saw all our co-workers, everyone made the comment that his new hair gave his face more definition and made him look his age. Wouldn't you agree?


  1. oh my gosh lauren, i ADORE your hair! seriously, i love the style so much, and i want to see more of it! i wanted to donate my hair before, but if it has been dyed, the chemical cleaning they do will melt it and turn it to mush :\ i think you look beautiful, and you make me want to get a rad style!

  2. Awww, so cute! I love your before and afters! Doesn't C look smart with his new do! He looks like a different person! I love the picture with the side part. And I love your long bangs. I am growing my hair, but it is a pain because I have to dye it so frequently (if only my regrowth wasn't the opposite of black). I think your new hair cut looks really cute - it's always hard to get used to, but I'm sure you'll feel yourself in no time :)

  3. Awe, I wish I could see the back! What happened to your camera? I'm still saving up for mine... I'm a little over halfway there (but it doesn't help that I keep digging into my stash for things like shoes!) ;) C is such a cutie!! Love his haircut, and yours looks great from the front. :)

  4. i am always jealous of those who can pull long and short hair... you are one of those! well, both of you! :) how HANDSOME is your boyfriend?! wowza! ;) really, the shorter hair shows off his gorgeous bone structure. Same with your short do! i am so proud of you because i think i would be terribly afraid to cut my hair that short. i'd want to, but i wouldn't be brave enough. Thank goodness you were brave enough cos lauren, you looks BEAUTIFUL! i have been meaning to tell you and i'm with D-- i want more photos of your hair please :)

    ps. i think it's incredibly cute that you both did this together <3

  5. Just found your blog and I absolutely love it. In fact, I love it so much that I added it to my Blogroll so I'll keep coming back.

    Both of you look adorable with the new hairstyles and they really flatter your faces!


you're brilliant, thanks so much for commenting!
