DIY haircuts.

The story of the last time I cut my hair myself is not pretty. It was a winter 2011 Sunday. Jeff had left to take his brother and sister-in-law some dinner because they were sick and they were supposed to come over, but I just couldn't handle something like that at that moment.
Before Jeff left he made me promise I wouldn't hurt myself. I promised him I wouldn't. I had calmed down quite a bit. He didn't want to leave, but I insisted because I hate being flaky even though I am probably one of the flakiest girls ever.
But when I get super depressed and few thoughts in my head are rational, I sometimes feel like I need to break something. I promised Jeff I wouldn't hurt myself, so that was out of the question. I wanted to throw something and break it, but I didn't want the neighbors to hear. So I cut off 11 inches of my hair.

I can't really explain why I feel like that other than it is rooted in depression and feeling so horrible on the inside that I want to destroy something. I haven't felt like that in a long time. I'm greatly more emotionally healthy these days thanks to counseling, medication, and my own efforts.

But a few days ago I cut off my hair again. This time for bangs because I was trying to thin out my eyebrows, but accidentally hacked off too much of my right brow. I'm not sure why I thought I needed to thin my eyebrows. But I love having bangs! Especially in the winter when they don't stick to your forehead from sweat and they can peak out of beanies.

I want to dye my hair again, but I'm going back and forth from dying it red from a box (gotta save the dollar bills) or getting part of it bleached so I can dye it My Little Pony colors.

P.S. I used this YouTube tutorial to cut my bangs. 


  1. Looks SO great Amy! Love yours and Ez's matching expressions :D

  2. I just have to echo Leah's comment. You're totes adorbs - and so is Ez. Love those matching faces. Seems like he knows when it's time to pose for a camera. Love you! xoxo

  3. I love you with bangs! As for hair color, I am obviously partial to red, but you know I am always wanting you to have mermaid/My Little Pony hair. Either way you'll be a babe!

    P.S. I love you and miss you so so much.

  4. Oh My Goodness, I have done the cut-my-hair-because-i'm-unstable thing!! But it grows back and we get stronger, right? I do love your bangs. I need bangs but I don't like the way they feel on my face.
    My vote, my little pony all the way!

  5. great blog ! Would you like to follow each other ?

  6. I love the my little pony colors, all of my friends had them growing up in pinks and blues and rainbows. And you have such an adorable family!
