Ta-Da!  Here's the first legit look at the new "do"!

I think I really shocked John with this cut, but I figured why not have a little fling this spring?!  My hair grows so fast he won't even remember!  I'll be back to the lob in a few weeks anyways.  Every now and then I want to go back to growing out my hair and being able to braid it and have long loose curls, but each time I just end up chopping it before it gets to that point.  It's also a big pain to take care of!  I've had fun experimenting with my new cut though!  I figured out how to blow it out; not much different than before, but I definitely can't let it dry too long before drying it.  I've also played around with the various curling iron sizes, which was much more natural for me.  The smaller the barrel the tighter the curl and better the hold (in my case).  The larger the barrel they curl looks more natural, but it is tougher to curl in the back and it tends to fall throughout the day and I definitely want to stay away from the "mom" look.  I might try and combining two of the barrels to give a couple of different textures, especially the underneath area, but also in the back.  As for any fun hairstyles, I'll have to practice on that because I'm only at a low ponytail with a few bobby pins!  [Insert girl primping emoji here.]
