The new hairdo

at Wednesday, May 11, 2011 2 comments
I have been itchin' to do something different with my hair. First of all I dyed it red. That didn't do it for me, so I went today and chopped it all off.  It's a huge change but I am totally in love with it. I have never cut my hair so short for fear of my scars showing. But I don't really care about that any more. I have more confidence then ever.
