The Love of Locks

December 5, 2008


Whoo! I chopped off 13 inches for Locks of Love, and I don't miss a single inch of it! I was contemplating for days and days: Should I keep my hair? Should I just get my front bangs again? Someone else needs my hair more than I do... My hair has looked the same for so long... but it takes forever for it to grow back if I don't like it...

When it was finally time to decide, I sat with my hairdresser for about five minutes deciding and just came across the conclusion: "Oh fuck it, eventually hair grows back."

  1. You look gorgeous!
    That's pretty much the reason why I always come back with shorter hair than planned whenever I go to the hairdresser. Once I'm there I go like "Screw it, it'll grow back" ;) good choice :)

    I have long hair just like you used to, but I dont have the courage to cut it! Its so frustrating! ahahah

    I own a brazilian fashion blog (www.garotasestupidas.com), and just added yours to my favorite pages on my pc.

    I would like to make a interview with you to publish there. So if you have interest and want to be friends with a brazilian blogger, just write me:

    I honestly Looove it! You looked good in the old hairdo but that's kinda stereotype cliche asian hair. It was pretty but this is just perfect. It's feminin, sophisticated, hot and sexy.

  10. I love...it's so cute and fun!!!

  11. You're soo brave!!! But I love your hair. It's definitely a great look!

    it's looks so cute but are you aware that locks of love isn't the greatest, most straightforward organization? the hair doesn't go to cancer survivors.

  21. you look great... nice decision

  22. Looks great!!
    You have such a pretty face you can pull of any hairstyle

    straight from the lockoflove site:

    Alopecia

    Our largest number of children live with alopecia. Alopecia is an auto-immune disorder that causes the hair follicles to shut down. This disease has varying degrees and affects 4.7 million people in the United States alone. Alopecia areata affects both sexes equally and may, but does not always, progress to significant hair loss. Currently, there is no known cause or cure for alopecia.

    Cancer

    Cancer constitutes the second highest percentage of our recipients. Every year approximately 2,200 children under age 20 are diagnosed with brain tumors. Radiation treatment to the brain stem as a treatment for cancer can cause permanent hair loss. Chemotherapy may also cause hair loss to be long-term depending on the length of treatment needed.



    wow... locks of love really sucks, right??

    raych, you look fantastic. i love it!! I cut off about 8 inches of hair a couple of years ago, loved it, and now im in the process of growing it back. it was good for me then, but now i want longer hair. just like you said - hair grows!!

  43. I absolutely love the cut!! I have donated to locks of love 3 times. The first time 12 inches, the second time 10.5, and the third time about 9. I just donated the 9 in May. My hair grows like crazy so I am sure I will be making more donations in my life : )I think you look too cute with the short hair and plus it was a for a good cause, so good for you!!

  44. Well I can honestly say this good deed didn't come with a high price at all, your new hair looks AMAZING. You are going to make someone very happy, and look gorgeous in the process. I heart your new hair, looks even better than the long version.

  45. What a great thing you did! Your new haircut looks amazing.

  46. WOW, I just had a horrible haircut today and my hair was just as long as yours and now it's a little longer than yours, but I did cry about it and seeing your post makes me feel a lot better. It felt really petty crying over lost hair, but it was so dramatic! Thanks for making me feel better about my "5th grade" haircut!
