My New Haircut

Remember how I talked about getting a haircut last week? Well today is the day you get to see the new me. My friend Amber did an amazing job making me look like new. She recently moved back to northern Michigan and opened Rootz Salon. If you need a haircut and/or a good stylist in northern Michigan, go and see Amber or her cousin Jenny at Rootz Salon. They will make you look beautiful!

As for donating my hair: Amber cut off quite a bit of my hair, and she's going to try and donate it to a place that will take my previously chemically treated hair. I hope someone can get some use out of all that hair. Maybe some day I'll donate again, but I'll have to get growing this hair again and maybe wait a while. Until then I'm enjoying my new haircut.

... and for the big reveal:



I love my new short hair! I do miss having long hair, but I'm already loving how healthy and stylish it looks. Not to mention, it takes a lot less time to dry it. I haven't had hair this short since maybe middle school, so it's a nice change. As much as I'd love my friend Amber to style it for me everyday I think I'm getting the hang of my new haircut. (:

p.s. She highlighted my hair with natural looking highlights too. It instantly made me look tan, which we joked about because I'm very pale for living in Florida. The end.

I have a million photos from my trip
to Michigan that I hope to share soon!


  1. AAAAAAHHHH!!!! I love it so so much! You look GORGEOUS! What a fun change :) I'm so tempted to chop mine off... NOT GOOD! I've decided I have to wait til my baby is 6 months old til I cut mine, that way I won't be making any rash decisions because of pregnancy :)

  2. Hello Gorgeous!! Girl, your hair is stunning! :) It definitely suites you, and it looks so healthy. And so perfect for this hot summer! What does Nate think about it?

  3. So pretty! I love hacking my hair off! I can't wait until mine is long enough to donate...getting close. I want to say that Pantene will take color treated hair. I think Locks of Love will take it as long as it hasn't been bleached.

  4. Aww, you're so cute! The haircut looks great!

  5. I love it!! You look gorgeous! It's so chic and polished yet still fun and spunky. :)

  6. Yay! I totally know the feeling, I donated mine a few months ago too. It looks very chic!

  7. Loving your new hair look! I just came across your blog and I am your newest follower. xo

    p.s. i'm your newest follower :)

  9. The haircut looks AWESOME! As a member of the Long Haired Girls Club, I know how scary it can be to cut it off... even if it's still long in other people's eyes. I love the new cut! It's awesome!

  10. Hey Ashley, As you already know, I thought your haircut was the bomb! It was great to see you in person over race weekend, and I'm glad you are blogging again. I'll be looking for those Michigan pics to show up, too. Best pic ever (Blue Ribbon Winner) of Nick Ladd coming in first as he races down the Indian River, but you know my true favorites - the ones of your dad. Take care, and give Nate a hug from me, please.
