Today was a big day!!!

Not really but I did get my hair cut. Here's the before self-portrait, which I'm sure you'll recognize, as I walked in the door of the hair-cut shop:

If you don't know, I've had longish hair a few times in my life. I had long hair as a senior in high school, again in college through grad school, and most recently for about the last five years. I've been kicking around getting it cut short for the last six months or so as I am was getting tired of it.

I went to see Koko, who's been cutting my hair for the last few years, today with the intention to get it all cut off...pretty much a #2 crew cut. When I got there I told her that I would leave it up to her but I did add that my mom liked it when my hair was first growing in this most recent time. I'm guessing that it was like six inches long at the time (if you stretched out the curls). Koko said that cutting it really short might be a bit extreme and that I may not like it. She suggested that we do something in between and if I didn't like it I could always come back and do the rest.

Well, here's what I ended up with:

...and side view...

It's probably about five-to-six inches long all over with the idea that I'll stick some goo in it to keep it from being a full-on afro. I'm actually pretty happy with it and am glad that I listened to Koko rather than just getting the clippers out and doing it myself.

Thanks Koko!

What do you think?
