Makeover Monday: Taking a Short Cut to the Beach.

This weeks Makeover Monday will be a bit different. I have been so busy with summer fun that I didn't have time to try any new makeover recipes from the kitchen... Instead I did something drastic. I chopped it all off in preparation for a trip to the beach. On Saturday I went in and got my locks cut to right at my chin. I love how it looks and feels. My annual "just chop it all off" trip to the salon was a bit more drastic than most years... but I'm so glad that I did it.
I was a bit scared at first (not about cutting it... I do that every year) but about the stylist lack of confidence. He talked too much and just seemed nervous about doing something so drastic. I'm a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to getting my hair cut. I don't really understand it, but for some reason, even though I only get my hair cut a couple of times a year I hate spending a lot for a new doo. So I went to Great Clips and as I was sitting there with more than half my locks on the floor I noticed how crooked it was. I guess it is intimidating cutting off almost a years worth of growth... but he got it right in the end and I am happy with the results.

So what does your summer doo look like? Is it the same as your winter look... or do like to try something new?

Update on the PITS project... We went camping this past week and the whole natural deodorant project got put on hold. My husband decided to go native and so our camping week will be the control week for the project. He will be using the apple cider vinegar this week. I already packed it up for the trip and I'll let you know how it goes. Thankfully we are pretty poor and won't be visiting any fine dining establishments while we are at the beach. Wish me luck.


  1. Turned out really cute! I'm glad because as soon as a stylist says anything to make me doubt them I am up and out of the chair, hahaha! But, I went to beauty school, and to say I'm a little picky would be an understatement..

  2. It looks great!! I cut 23 inches off last year and donated it to locks of love so I'm trying to grow it back out because I miss my long hair so so much. Have a great time at the beach!

  3. I love the new cut! I need to do that. Just chop it all off and dye it some random color. Apple cider pits? I can only imagine...

  4. cute new doo! i just chopped off about 4 inches - it was full of dead ends and turning red as the last of my dye job grew out. i too hate spending money on my hair - in fact, its been close to 10 years since i've had my hair cut by a professional - i'm prone to shear my own hair in the bathroom.
