The Haircut that made me cry.

I almost didn't even post about my new haircut because I hate it that much. Garth convinced me I needed to write about it to remind myself NOT to cut my hair the next time I get the urge. So, here it is.
What went wrong? Well, the hair dresser didn't even LOOK at the picture I gave her, she just talked and chopped at my hair. Before I knew it, eight inches were gone and I knew I would not be able to put it in a ponytail. This is just tragic since that is my style 95% of the time. I loathe having to do my hair every. single. day.
I tried not to think about it, but as soon as Garth walked through the door I started crying. He was so sweet, comforting me and telling me he loves it and that he likes that I have to do my hair all the time.

After:
Grow, hair, grow!

I actually LOVE it!!! But it's a bummer that she didn't do what YOU wanted!!!

Aunt Jenn Creates said...

I think it looks great! But I understand the frustration in getting a hair cut you do not like. I got one 3 weeks ago. And although everyone else seems to "love it" I do not. Wishing you speedy growth! ha!

jen + ryan said...

i LOVE it!!! it frames your face and brings all the attention to your beautiful eyes!! :)

(i totally understand that no matter how many people tell you they love it, the only thing that really matters is how YOU feel about it. so take some prenatal vitamins and your hair will be long again in no time!)

Jennifer said...

I love it! And it is probably much easier to fix and style!

A Journey Through the Waiting Game said...

I think it's really cute! Sophisticated cut! I know what you mean about chopping your hair off -- I did it once and I'll never do it again. You seriously wake up the next morning and say, "what on earth did I do?! where is my hair?!"

Anna said...

It seriously looks great, even if you don't think so! You look very polished and older -- in a good way!

the future mrs Hinz said...

omg i thnk its precious! it goes great with your face shape. i really like it! its super cute on you. it might take some getting used to - but i think you will come around! i really like it and the color is still great too!

Jorden and Kristin said...

i know you don't like it but I LOVE IT!!! you look so good with that style! i think it flatters you a lot! but for your own sake i hope it grows fast! I'm w/you on the no-ponytail-really-sucks thing. Mine is to where I can get it into little 6-year-old-girl-pigtails but that's not very falattering! haha

Lauren said...

I think it's really cute...it's about the length mine is and even though I also hate not being able to put it up in a pony tail I have had lots of compliments on it!

However, if it's not what you wanted, then it's not what you wanted so here's to your hair growing fast!

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Oh. My. God! Your hair is so freaking cute! I cut off almost 10 inches and got a very similar haircut. I hated it and everyone else loved it. i think it's because it's such a drastic change. You look amazing!

Rachel said...

OMG you should not be crying!! I seriously and honestly think that your hair looks better than it did before. It frames your face so much better!! I think you will get used to it, just give it a week or two. I know how you feel because I've had this happen, and trust me, mine looked way worse than yours does. Yours really looks great!

Ricardo and Lauren said...

I know how that feels! But it actually looks really cute!! I like it! It stinks that you don't like it but I think it'll grow on you!

Jon and Steph said...

Absolutely adorable on you! It suits you so well and really goes well with your face shape! No worries beautiful lady, it looks great! and before you know it, you'll be able to put it back in a pony tail!

Megan said...

Oh I think it looks ADORABLE! Seriously, it looks really good. But I defnitely know how it feels to cut your hair and not like it. But it looks great!

Laura said...

I think it looks really cute, but I do understand the frustration of not being able to put it up. Hopefully it will grow to the length you want soon, but in the meantime - it still looks great!

Shannon said...

I love the short look!

I know what you mean about the ponytail. Mine is in one 99% of the time! But, I will say that it looks great short!!!

But, if you want it to grow fast... Prenatal vitamins!

Mrs. M said...

I love it!

Brittany said...

OH MY GOSH it looks AWESOME:) I recently cut my hair WAAAAYYYY too short also....and I was so upset... but it'll grow is what I keep telling myself..but girl your hair looks awesome short!

Erin said...

I think it looks great but I also know how it feels to have a haircut that makes you cry everytime you look at it.

Saskia said...

Lindsey I really love it too!! It looks so great on you. Please don't be too upset about missing your hair (I know how that feels) as it really does look LOVELY!

Hope you begin feeling better about it soon.

Mrs. Potts said...

I think your hair looks great! I do understand the feeling you have right now. I often wish I hadn't allowed my old stylist to take as much as she did.

I have heard that pre-natal vitamins will help your hair grow faster.

Lea Liz said...

Okay girl so it may have not been exactly what you wanted but.. I THINK IT LOOKS AWESOME!!!! I love it and I think it looks great on you, just beautiful!!!

Ashley said...

yes, i'm joining the concensus that it's looking pretty STUNNING on you! do you have wavy hair or something? i do, which means i have to style mine everyday if i don't pull it back... if you have straight hair though, it looks pretty low maintenance :-)

again, i love it!

sabrina said...

at least it looks awesome! i had a cut like this once and loved how it looked but hated having to fix it... half up worked ok though, esp just blow drying with a round brush, pretty quick!

MrsB said...

it looks really pretty though.

katie + bret said...

Oh my gosh that looks SO good on you!! CUTE!! Well, I love it. I am bummed that you hate it though :/ Maybe it will grow on you? Or just grow super quickly

Lucy Marie said...

I agree with the others that it looks just fab on you! But I completely understand being upset and frustrated when it's not what you had in mind .. especially if it means the difference between a ponytail and no ponytail. regardless, you look beautiful.

SarahB said...

CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!!!!!!!

AmyT said...

I think it looks really good on you!!! I know what you mean though...but I went in stages cutting my hair...my hair was below the 'bra line'....I went to right under the shoulders...then shorter and shorter......which I have the most awesome hair dresser (my sister) and she knows what I like...and she's not the type to just do what 'she' wants like most hair dressors..ughh I've had that happen one too many times - that is why before she started school/cutting....she and I did each others hair all the time! OK anyway...your hair really does look awesome!!!! very becoming!

Kelly said...

I'm sorry you don't like it. I know it's a pain to do everyday. However, I agree with everyone, It really does look great. But, if you don't like it that's all that mattered. I hate it when a stylist doesn't listen to what you say. :(

saucyminx410 said...

I think it looks fantastic! I can understand why you could be upset though- when you lose a lot of length it can be devastating! You look great though- fear not!

Bluebird said...

I think you hair cut it cute. But you're right, you have to put more time into when you hair is that short... :( It will grow. Try taking prenatal vitamins.

AmberDenae said...

Lindsey, I really do like it!! And I'm not just saying that to make you feel better. You look beautiful and it will grow back! It looks great though, really!!! :)

Tara Gibson said...

girl... i love it!! i think its adorable!

Caroline said...

I think the new hair do is VERY flattering!

The Southern Housewife said...

I've got to be honest.... I think you look 100% cuter, more sophisticated, modern and in vogue with your new hairstyle than with your longer cut.

It has a more polished look. I hope you grow to love it cause you look FABULOUS! ;)

Lindsay said...

girl you hair is CUTE! i am sorry you don't love it- but it will grow back! don't worry!

April E. :) said...

Well, I know what it's like to get a cut that I hate...but if it makes you feel any better I think you look gorgeous!!!

Ashley said...

awww, i'm so sorry! i have had several haircuts that I hated too :( and not that it will make you like it more, but i think it looks super cute!

Taryn said...

It is adorable. Seriously.

Brittany Ann said...

I totally understand your frustrations with the no pony tail thing.

But, darling, you're gorgeous, and your hair looks great regardless.

Still, fire that stupid hair dresser.

Even if we think it looks awesome (and we all do, it seems) she should listen to you!

pocket full of pink said...

Oh, I loveeeee it!! It's so chic and sassy!!!!! I know it must be disheartening but please know that it looks GREAT!

Jordan said...

I can totally understand how you feel. I have been wanting a change, but I love the freedom a ponytail brings. That being said, you look FABULOUS with that cut! It is so flattering - really! Give it a few days, and maybe it will "grow" on you. :)

Kim @ NewlyWoodwards said...

I just cut my hair this week, too. I love your hair short, but maybe it just takes some getting used to. It should take a lot less time to style, so maybe you won't mind it so much. I relaly think it frames your face well.

recipes for the life said...

U look absolutely great!! If yoy have to cry its only because you look so good that you are overwhelmed :D!! Seriously, you look GREAT!

Sweetbabs said...

I had the same thing happen to me last year. I can totally relate. :-(

I cried too! Thank goodness my sister-in-law is the monster that did it to me and I demanded she give me free extensions to make it so I did not feel like a 40 year old soccer mom. I hope it grows fast for you.

TheTinyJEWELBox said...

It's very cute. Remember, life comes in phases--this one will be over before you know it.

Heather said...

Sorry your so upset, I think it looks awesome..super cute. The Lob (long bob) is totally in now.

Justine said...

I think it's SO CUTE!! But, it really stinks that it's not what you wanted. I hate doing my hair everyday too!!

Take pre-natal vitamins and your hair will grow faster :)

In this wonderful life... said...

SO sorry you don't like it!! I think it looks SO AWESOME!!!

Jen Caputo said...

Personally, I think that haircut looks fantastic on you!!! I can understand the pain of not being able to ponytail it though :)

KC said...

Aww... Your hair is adorable!! Don't cry or be upset. Just remember: you're beautiful no matter what! And it's just hair, it will grow! :-)

Maybe you can start playing with cute headbands to keep your hair back! Or scarves, or fun hair accessories! :-)

And thanks for the advice. I didn't have a nightmare last night!

Newlywed Hostess said...

It looks great on you! But I do understand the frustration over having to continually style it. I love being able to throw my hair back when I am in a hurry!

Suzette said...

It looks sooo good.. You can always use a coupl of bobbypins and pull back just the bangs... It really looks great!

Brandi said...

Aww it's cute! I like it! It will grow back in no time though don't worry!! I think we have all experienced that before!

B.E.A said...

I think it looks great!

Miss Anne said...

O.M.G. YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL!
I love love love love it!
(that's alot of love) :)

Seriously, that's a gorgeous style for you!

Janet said...

My dear? The cut is so beautiful and flattering and you obviously have NO idea. Seriously. You're always beautiful, but it's a Huge improvement.

Meg said...

Ah, I love the short look on you. It's adorable! :) But I can understand like wanting to do you hair every day.

THE Stephanie said...

Girl, don't hate it too much b/c it's looks FABULOUS!!! You look amazing!!

bekah said...

well...you DO look adorable! I actually think it LOOKS really good one you, but Im sorry to hear its not what you wanted! I would be upset if I couldnt get my hair up either!

Sarah - La Jeune Marie said...

Wow I love it so much more than the longer look! It looks so chic and styled. I wish you liked it!

Tammy said...

I think it looks great! But totally understand wanting to be able to put it up.

Southern Web Girl said...

I really like the new cut. I think you should keep that style and shape, just grow it out a few inches until you can fit it in a ponytail.

Also, I know all sorts of girls with bobs like that who can still put their hair up. They just use lots of hair doodads to make it work. (c:

Patience said...

I love your new hair cut, it looks great on you!! I know how you feel, I cut 12 inches off my hair in April and I cannot wait for it to grow back.

Mrs. Newlywed Giggles said...

I LOVE the short hair look on you. Not everyone can pull it off, but missy, you sure can!!!!

Amy Lynn said...

I think it's cute!!! I recently cut my forever long hair and have been sportin' chin length hair for over a year. When I cut mine,I donated it. I figured if I donated it, and I hated the cut, at least I could fall back on the fact that I did it for a good cause. lol. Luckily, I don't hate it, BUT I dislike it sometimes! It's hard to maintain, and it gets to be a pain having to style it all the time because you can't just throw it up in a ponytail, or a messy bun, but... I still like mine, and I like yours, and it'll grow. If you didn't cut it short this time, you would probably still do it at some point so you knew what it was like. Now that you know, it's okay to pray for it to grow :) That's what I'm doing.... I'm tired of it! No matter how cute it is, it sure can be a pain! Until then.... live it up and play with new styles and accessories!!!!!

Holly said...

I love it!! It looks so good on you!

Lucky in Love said...

Okay, first..it looks freaking fabulous!

But I totally feel you. I just got my hair chopped and can barely put it in a pony tail. My bangs don't go back so I either HAVE to do them (which I hate) or just bobby pin them back. I wish there was a way to try out a hairstyle before we actually had to decide.

Annie said...

sorry to hear you don't like it hun :(
i think you look ADORABLE!! i love it!! :)

oneheart-twohands said...

It looks great! That's not very nice that she didn't even look at the picture though. Who was the picture of? I know what you mean though. I got my hair shorter once and couldn't put it up. I couldn't wait for it to grow out...which it did pretty quickly. It really does look good though!! :) You're one of those lucky girls who look good in short or long hair.

Sara said...

I know everyone has said this, but it's really cute and flattering. And, it's hair. It will grow out before you know it.

Meagan said...

I LOVE IT! You look amazing. Seriously!

lola said...

Oh my goodness, I think it is GORGEOUS! I love short hair and while it's a pain to not be able to put it up, it's that much easier to style.

Jenny G said...

It's super-cute!

Nessa said...

Oh! Im so sorry!! I've TOTALLY been there....just try to focus on the positives and try doing things you couldnt do when your hair was longer..it can be kinda fun. ;)

Jessica said...

I love it!!! I think it looks so classy and adorable :-) Hopefully once you get used to it, you'll like it too :-)

Tabbie:) said...

I LOVE IT!! Don't hate it!!
I can't wait to chop mine off again!!

Melissa said...

I know you hate it, but seriously, I think it looks awesome! You look so pretty!!

Samantha said...

Your hair looked a lot shorter the last time I saw you. Nonetheless, I still love the new hairdoo!!!! AND its ok that you feel like that, I feel like that every time I get my hair done too!

April Pantall said...

I think it looks great. I'm sorry you don't love it....but hair always grows :) Thank goodness!

Elizabeth said...

I think it's adorable! However, I've been there before and NO sweet comments can make up for a bad hair cut! Here's to quick growth... :)

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

I think its cute! I agree it will be more work not being able to pull it back....but it does look great! Don't be too discouraged!

Nicole said...

Love it! Doing hair everyday does suck! But worth it =D

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

girl I know how it is to get a cut you don't like, but it looks sooo good!!! You look beautimous! Don't have any more negative thoughts about it, super cute!

morewineplease said...

are you kidding me?? you look beautiful!

Kassie said...

Oh no!! That's the worst feeling for a girl, when you hate your hair. I had the same thing happen to me: my hair was long, all the way down my back, and I decided to go crazy (for me lol) and cut it to my shoulders. The lady didn't listen and cut mine as short as yours. Everyone told me how fantastic it look, and I'm sure it might have, but it wasn't me. So I know what you mean!! Yours looks fantastic, honestly, but its not what you wanted. :( It'll grow!!

d.a.r. said...

Seriously??? I think it is so cute on you, and totally flattering for your face shape!

Jenny.Lee said...

I'm so not kidding when I say I really like it! It's a good style for you!

Mrs. Newlywed said...

I think it looks great!

If you really want it to grow take prenatal vitamins. It makes your hair grow!

Q, La, and Gooner said...

Oh I love it too! You look great Chica; I hate it that she didn't listen. That isn't even right!

Jane said...

I think you look fabulous! But I totally get the not being able to put it in a ponytail thing! But at least your look great!

Lil' Woman said...

That stinks that she didn't listen to you but I must say it looks great on you! : )

SassyEngineer said...

I had haircuts I didn't love either, and I can never tell the hairdresser to fix it. Once, I even went home and tried to cut it myself. Why I thought that would be a good idea, I'll never know! I don't recommend doing that (but since you don't want it short I doubt you'll go cutting more of it yourself).

ANYWAY, all of that to say though I LOVE IT! I love people that can rock the super chic bob (mine is too curly to look awesome), but I love it. However, I know if you don't love how you look it doesn't matter what other people say. Luckily hair does grow. Hang in there :)

Perfectly Imperfect said...

I actually completely love it!! It looks great! It frames your face and makes your eyes pop girlie! But I do know the importance of a ponytail... Sorry she didn't listen to you, but hon, it really does look awesome!

Laura said...

Are you serious?! It's CUTE! I thought it was going to be ridiculously short and SPIKY or something, hahahaha. I LIKE IT!

MelissaF said...

Well, I'm really sorry that you didn't get what you want. There's really nothing worse when it comes to your hair. That said, I think it looks awesome. It's a very polished look.

a H.I.T. said...

Don't hate me, but I love it. I think you look so great. You have a great face and can definitely pull off shorter hair.

- Sarah :-) said...

Okay, so I knwo you don't like it, so it may not matter, but I actually think it looks amazing!! Especially with your practically chizelled face, now - it looks so good!!

- Sarah :-) said...

PS: Hopefully you didn't pay for it after all of that drama...

Anne Carr said...

Aww, you poor dear! I know what it's like to get a hair cut that you hate. But honestly, it's really cute! :) And it will grow, don't worry...it's only hair, right? Hang in there!

mrs.leah.maria said...

It does flatter you so! But I can't imagine not being able to pull it back! Augh!

That top is super cute as well!

Mary Michal said...

I really like your new hair cut! It shapes your face really well. Not being able to put it in a ponytail sucks though.

Perfectly Pleasant said...

I'm sorry you don't like it -- I think it looks darling, it frames your face beautifully!

Katie said...

Ok, so I don't know if you want to hear this, but I actually think it looks great and I really am lovin it! I wish you liked it! Sometimes it seems like the hairstylist are in another world...

Sarah Rosemary said...

Oh I love your cut! I takes a few days to get used to it, I know.

I nominated you for an award. See my blog and follow along :)

Angie said...

Just wanted to let you know I left an award for ya on my blog!

Leah said...

I really think it looks great!

Mrs. J L said...

are u serious?
I actually LOVE it!!!!

Katy said...

I'm sorry. I've had one of those hair cuts a few years ago. It was horrible.

BUT I do think your new cut looks great on you.

Mrs. S. said...

I have to say, I do really like your hair. I know that all the wonderful comments in the world can't change how you feel though. I'm sure it will grow super fast though. I hate when hairdressers just start chopping.

Katie said...

I'm sorry that it isn't what you wanted but I think it looks fabulous!! It may be a little more work but I love it!

MissJody said...

I'm so happy that hair DOES grow back...however...(don't be mad)
You look so CUTE!!!
I love it on you :)

Lynsey T said...

I think you look gorgeous! I totally understand about wanting a low maintenance hair style (mine ends up in a pony or messy bun everyday) but the color and style is very flattering to you. Start taking prenatal vitamins so it grows!!!

Amanda said...

I think it is awesome! Give it at least a week....you may change your mind!!

Gwen said...

Oh honey. I know I'm late but I love your new style. BUT...I know what you are feeling. I had the same problem about 5 years ago. She did exactly what I wanted but I hated it on me. I still think you look fabulous!!! XOXO

The Shabby Princess said...

OK, a) you're so skinny! and b) I think it's really cute!! But, I know what you mean--if it's not the way you want it AND too short, it's just a nightmare. I'm sorry!

Dani said...

I actually think it is beautiful!!!! I'm sorry you don't like it, since that's the most important thing of all... :(

Jules said...

I think it looks really nice on you, but I understand that it isn't what you like. I had this happen once a long time ago and was so upset that I cried too.

That is very sweet of Garth to make you feel better!

Mrs. McB said...

I really like the new hair! Actually, I love it!!

Elizabeth said...

I LOVE your new hair!!! I think you will grow to love it once you get used to it. I had a similar thing happen to me recently and in the end I was glad it was done. :)
