Trim Done and Daughter Home

I finally did my half inch trim today. I always have mixed feelings when I trim. On the one hand, I know that I need it, but on the other hand, I hate losing length. However, wanting thicker ends in the long run always outweighs any trepidation I might have. 

I know how fickle I sound. Sometimes I really want to cut out the remaining 4 or so inches of thin ends, and then on the other hand, I feel hesitant about trimming just a half inch. Well, I think a lot of us feel that way at times.

The trim seemed to go well, and I didn't cut off any more than I planned on. I do know that my ends feel nice, but until I wash my hair and see it damp, it will be difficult to tell exactly how the hemline is looking. I have some bun waves right now, so it's hard to tell. 

My daughter arrived yesterday in the late afternoon, and we stayed up talking well past my bedtime. Unfortunately, I had a bit of a rough night, so I'm not as well-rested as I'd like to be today. Especially given how this past week has been, I really needed a good night's sleep.

Tonight I'll be going to bed as soon as I'm drowsy enough, just as I did the other evening. I hope that I sleep through the night.

Well, this is very brief, but my daughter is not going out this evening, which may not be the case for the rest of her visit, so I'll leave it at that for today.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all.


  1. Hi Franny,
    I understand not wanting to lose any length all to well...I waited over 4 months before getting a trim. I've come SO far from my short, short style in the summer of '09 I didn't even want a dusting.

    But I also understand it's vital for growing long healthy hair. Funny,(not)my hair dresser thinks my hair is very long now, at 22" that's a whole other conversation...

    I admire your courage in trimming your own hair & being able to do those lovely updos....

    Enjoy your daughters visit & I hope you feel better soon.


  2. I'm glad that you are having a great visit with your daughter. Hope you get the rest you need.

  3. Linda, it really has taken me a while to balance the idea of trimming while still growing.

    And your hair is very long by real world standards at 22 inches. It's rare these days for me to see anyone with hair that long, even girls in their teens.

    Thank you SchnauzerMom. I am so happy that I finally did get some rest.


I love hearing from you.
