Pantene Beautiful Lengths

Yesterday afternoon, as an older man observed with a slightly terrified expression, my ten-inch ponytail was chopped off in a matter of seconds. But I wasn't too scared myself, because that ponytail is going to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. It's helping to make a free headpiece for a fellow female, one undergoing cancer treatment at the expense of her own beautiful locks.

It's been about 10 years since I last parted with a whole ponytail at one time. But as the words "without long hair, I won't look as girlie" came out of my mouth the night before, I immediately replied to myself, "what if it wasn't my choice to give up my hair?" At that point it no longer seemed like a choice, I had to do it!


Before you give me too much credit though, I must admit that perusing Pinterest for what is apparently termed a "lob" (a.k.a. a long bob) got me excited about the sheer (pardon the pun) newness of my potential cut.


When it's all said and done, I don't think I've had my hair this short since I was a toddler! But 2015 seemed like just the year for something like that. It's the year I get a college degree, the year I become an alumna of not only Ole Miss but also Chi Omega, the year I get a new puppy, and it's the full set of 365 days I get to spend engaged to my best friend :) Can't wait!
