Operation Big Chop - Success!

This should be pretty self-explanatory:






too late now! (A total of eight separate pony-tails)
This was taken after I was done putting my head between my knees. (Lookin' a little pale....)

The artist at work --


Who the hell is this?

This is going to take some getting used to. But it was fun watching people recognize me at the Knitting Guild Meeting, and the feedback was good. Of course, people feel obligated to say nice things, because they have to say something, but they all seemed sincere.

The new 'do looks fabulous, but not nearly as great as that little kid's hairpiece is going to look. It's a great feeling,isn't it?

Holly said...

The new haircut is adorable. The person wearing the new haircut is beautiful from the inside out. Way to be an inspiration.

Vicki said...

It looks great! It is so weird when you get your hair cut. It's so much lighter, and you keep trying to run your fingers through hair that isn't there anymore. Someone will love that beautiful hair of yours :)

Beth, it looks great. Those comments were certainly deserved at the guild meeting. Have a great day.

Danielle said...

Great haircut. Your hair color is very cool it is going to make a child so happy.

Kathy said...

Just wanted to let you know that I highlighted this post in my blog today. :)

Congrats, now enjoy the extra time you'll have each day!

Kris said...

Oh my goodness, you weren't kidding when you said you had a lot of hair. It's gorgeous, both the pile of beautiful ponytails (that really is a pretty hair color), and of course, you new look is great. :)

Nancy said...

You look fabulous and it was for a wonderful cause.

Kirsti said...

Wow. The new haircut looks great - though I can understand you having a going-pale, head-between-the-knees moment or two. I hope that the summer warmth kicks in soon, so you can appreciate the joys of short hair in hot weather ... and know that it's nothing compared to how much someone will be appreciating your donation.

Lauren said...

Vicki Knitorious said...

Oh, you're just adorable. Fabulous hair!

Ann said...

Your new 'do looks fab! Great cause. Brava!

Dani said...

CONGRATS! I'm so happy your hair came out as lovely as it did, you deserve it after your selfless act!

You should be VERY PROUD of yourself! I sure am proud of you =)

Wow Beth! You did it! Doesn't it feel great? After seeing your photo now I want to go shorter.

Isn't it nice to not have to pick a huge wad of hair off the shower drain in the morning?

Melissa said...

Wonderful! It looks wonderful!

Way to go, Beth!

Some little girl is going to be very happy. Also, I see you've made your goal. I'm very happy for you and your new look is great!

YOU LOOK GREAT !!!! WHAT A WONDERFUL THING YOU DID

Kathleen said...

I think it looks great! Wow, you gave an impressive 14". My 13" was kinda skimpy. You must have such thick hair. I agree it was an adjustment. I found it to be more work too. But I am so thrilled that I did it.

Carrie said...

WooHoo! It looks awesome, Beth!

Teresa said...

Looks wonderful.. makes me want to do it again.. I dontated waist length hair Oct 2002. Hubby pouted so much, that I grew it back, though, lol. It is to the middle of my back, and the baby LOVES to make a mess of it.
