Hair, hair, everywhere there's hair!

Ok, folks. I did it! My long hair, it is chopped and in a bag, ready to be shipped off to Locks of Love. My head is lighter, shinier and RED! Aaaiiiieeee!!!I wrote a post previously about my sudden desire to donate my long hair. After writing it, I was contacted by Melissa of Woolgatherings about a call to donate in the blogosphere. Please click on over and consider donating chunks of your do sometime this year (it might need to grow for a while!)Holy moly, I look old and tired... I swear, I'm only 31. It was FLOURESCENT lights, 8 pm, and no make up. ..


My hairdresser was having a ball taking pics!


AAACK!! 2 10 inch pigtails. Looking hot in that green cape! You can see my natural hair color (with, ahem, WAY too many gray and white streaks) here.

I love my new do!! Please feel free to sling compliments my way, and I will send you a big prize in the mail. (ok, I won't, but I will comment back and say thank you, which is just as good, right?)

Not the best picture as it's really dark behind me, but I have an angle cut towards my chin. It's cute, easy to take care of, and I can still tuck it behind my ears or pull the top back in a little barrette on those days when my hair might not be so, um, clean...

Here's the red this morning! Evan was really impressed that I "colored" my hair. I hear Corinne waking up... I wonder what her reaction will be!

I suddenly feel younger! It's also a great way to lose a pound in 30 seconds....

Let me hear it, peeps!

Fabulous!! I will be posting my Locks of Love post tomorrow, and I will be sure to include your link. I will have a FLICKR group set up so you can post a pictue of yourself holding your cut hair. You can wait for the link tomorrow, or you can find the group on FLICKR by typing in Bloggers for Locks of Love (I think it's case sensitive).

AWESOME!!

Great Job! You look FABULOUS, and to think that your hair is going to such a wonderful cause. So proud of you and your new shorter hair! Looking Good :)

Kristi said...

Love it! Although my hair will never grow that long, and it's so thin, no one would want it even if it did, I think it's great that you (and others) are willing to donate your hair to such a great cause.

And the new do and color is fab!

Kai said...

Gorgeous! I LOVE love love the color!

Rebecca said...

I really love it, Tracey! The color is really pretty and the cut is cute! That's an awesome cause, good for you for donating! BTW, if you get a minute, come check out my blog, I tagged you for a meme (it's a really easy one).

Beck said...

Tracey, you look JUST LIKE A FRIEND OF MINE! Except she's blond! But you guys could be TWINS!
What a nice thing for you to do - and you look great.

Kami said...

You look great! I mentioned this to my hairdresser last time I was there (after your first post about it) and she said it can't be coloured. Mine is but I shoudl sitll look into it.

Do you know if it can be coloured or not? My hair grows super fast so I could easily do it within 6 months.

I think it's so great that you did, yay for you Tracey! I love you new bob and red too, very chic mama!

Family Adventure said...

You have FANTASTIC hair...before and after. I love your shorter look (prefer it, actually), and I just now that those cut-off long, shiny locks will make someone so happy.

Awesome post!

Heidi :)

Family Adventure said...

now=know

It's late in Norway - what can I say?! :)

Tracey said...

Kami, read the website for all of the specifics, but I believe colored hair is ok, just not preferred. Also, different lengths are ok, but they require 10 inches for a wig. I believe that they use the shorter pieces to sell to other companies to offset the costs involved.

Hannah said...

WOW! What a transformation! You look totally different with short hair. Of course you looked gorgeous before but I really do love the short style and the RED! And it's just a wonderful thing that you have done, for such a worthy cause! GO YOU!!

Tonya said...

Your hair was so long! I love the new style. And you got to donate 2 pony tails very cool. I really like the red too.

By the way the anonymous was my husband he does that all the time and then denies it for an hour after I ask him. Men :)

Christina said...

You look great! That's a great cut for you, and the color is lovely.

Plus it's always wonderful to do some good with your leftover hair.

we are reilly said...

LOVE it! I really like the red -- I tend to go more red in my hair too. When you turn 31 (me too!), you've got to do something to spice up your life, right?

Amy said...

I love having short hair. I tried growing it out when I was prego. BUt as soon as I had my girl I chopped it off again. I just like shorter better, plus it is a lot fast and I can do more fun hair dos :)

Phoenix said...

I think it looks great and i love the red.

Hey I'm 27 and I've got some gray ones too.

carrie said...

It looks great! (Much better than my do-it-yourself job) :)

And you're right, you look like you're fifteen! Whoo Whoo!

Tracey,

Hi! I just got a message from Maria who I tagged for the same meme that I tagged you for. She said that when she tried to put the meme on her blog, all of her Ad Sense advertising disappeared. She seems to thing that the meme had something to do with it, due to some unexceptable verbage. I don't know if that's the case or not, but just wanted to let you know, don't want to ruin everyone's blogs! I'm sorry if this caused you any problems.

Don Mills Diva said...

I love the new do - it looks fab AND you did a great thing!

Alex Elliot said...

You look wonderful! I'm ver impressed that you donated your hair. What a terrific cause.

Elle*Bee said...

Love the new look. Our cuts are similar. Unfortunately I went shorter gradually so no locks to donate. Perhaps next time...

I wish I could do red haircolor. It would be so wrong with my skintone, but you look fabulous!

Kathryn said...

I am loving the short hair! That was a great decision!!!! You look fab! Well done!

Tricia said...

Darling- and you do look younger!

LaskiGal said...

Oh wow! You are AWESOME!!! I love what you did for LofL and I adore the new cut and color. Fabulous!

JO-N said...

You look good in that new hairstyle of yours.

Dana said...

LOVE it! The red looks great!

Melissa said...

It's fantastic!! I really love the red... if I cut 10" off I would be bald... :) Good for you for donating it!

Stacie said...

it looks great!

the dragonfly said...

Wonderful!!

I gave 14" in October, so it'll be about a year before I can do it again. I think it was the fourth time I did it. It's amazing how light you feel when you lose that much hair all at once...and it makes your heart feel good too. :)

Michelle said...

Your new cut is wonderful! It looks great on you and like it's so easy to manage! I wish I could do something drastic like that w/my hair, but I'm a wimp! I always end up getting the basic same thing done to mine LOL

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

That looks awesome! I am itching to do the same thing!

Robin said...

Ahhhh, I see what you're talkin' about, gawgeous!!

What a noble reason for a day with your hairdresser :). Red is just sassy!

Oh I wish I had known you did this back then...! I just donated my third set to Locks for Love this week and shhh... I haven't told the internet yet :) Your haircut turned out great!

And too funny - my hairdresser is a good friend and she started to giggle about the grey in my hair too! :)
