The “Married Haircut”

My hair has evolved over the past 2 years.  It went from super long when I went to Peru on the church missions trip.

Then it was medium when I started college.

Then I wanted something different, so my suitemate (and bestie) cut my bangs and gave me a trim.

Finals week second semester of my freshman year came and I cut a lot off for a new summer ‘do.  

So then I got a few trims over the summer and in the fall it was shoulder length.  Jon and I got engaged in October of last year and I knew we were getting married in December so I went on a cutting fast.

My friend and fellow RA at CNU, Erin, did my hair beautifully for the wedding.  

Then two weeks ago I was ready for something new.  It was a fairly drastic cut being that it was the shortest I had ever gotten it cut.  I must say, it was scary watching the stylist chop off inches of my hair, but in the end it turned out alright.

I have had more than one person call this a “married haircut”.  Meaning, I guess, that it is easy to take care of for a busy newly-married wife.  It is easy to take care of and I love being able to throw a hairband in it.  Oh, How I love hairbands!  The only downside I have found is that Jon LOVES "fluffing" it with his hand. This has become almost as annoying as standing in the 10-items-or-less line behind someone with a full cart. 

So, here’s to Married Haircuts!


  1. All of our trials should be so horrid.

  2. You are adorable, and I love the last 3 sentences...hilarious!
