Alright fine. I'll show you pictures of my new hair. After almost two weeks, I'm getting used to it. It's still long enough for a ponytail at the gym, it doesn't take forever to do most days, and I'm feeling sassy. I had 10 inches cut off, I got side bangs, and even got some blond highlights (color, not bleach). Love it. And yes, I'm donating it.
So all in all, I think I came away victorious. Thanks all for your input and moral support. It was a big day. I keep telling Nick, "uhh... it's okay for you to tell me every day that you really like my hair." Because let's face it-- guys give a compliment once and then figure that it still stands, unless they tell you otherwise. A little friendly hint to the husband never hurt nobody.
