My new head – shot. :)

To my new readers who wouldn’t know, I am a breast cancer survivor! And proud of it! 🙂 I have been through so much in my life in the last 7 years and to be a survivor has a lot of meaning to me.
Anyhoo! I have kept my clients and readers up-to-date with my hair! A trivial thing – right? LOL Yes, but when you have long hair down your back for your entire life, and then are forced to shave it bald… it’s an adjustment!
I went through many feelings, mostly not feeling feminine any longer. Of course we all know that short hair on a woman is super sexy and VERY feminine. But for me, missing all that hair was hard. Very hard. I used to be a cosmetologist, and I remember cutting short hair was my favorite. Sexy-stylish-edgy!
My mom would say to me, “What if you just had cut all your hair off”, would it be ok then? The answer? Yes! But being forced to do something that you don’t want to – that you aren’t comfortable with, is not easy.
I look back at the pictures we took of me with 1″ long hair, and 3″ of hair up until this day. It’s amazing how no hair, a little hair and a lot of hair looks so different on one person.
Either way, here I am! Super happy and healthy. 🙂 So having long hair and super short hair, I am feeling most comfortable in my middle-of-the-road hair length now. Before I went through chemo I found a long lost friend whom I used to work with at a salon in Minden. She works here in Reno and she cut most of my hair off before I lost it, and has gone through many haircuts with me since.
It’s funny, hair seems to be such an important thing, but now I realize, IT’S JUST HAIR!! LOL It grows back, so why not have fun with it?!
So I’ll get off my soap box now, but I guess my point is that long, short, or NO hair, we are all hot and sexy mamas!
So here’s my newest pic for my BRAND NEW website coming out very soon! Many of you have already seen this since I put it on FB to see which pic was best for the site.
