What’s The Big Hairy Deal?...

Aug 1, 2015 by

  Just under 5 years ago, I went from long curly locks and fringe to this in a matter of moments:     I had always wanted to try short hair before I finally went for the big chop, and I wanted to do it while I was young, since short hair seems to be the go-to cut for women of a certain age.
