wow!! you are very bold, it looks great! I cannot WAIT to do my PWC but I think I’m going to wait a little bit just because I can’t stand the thought of spending more money right now haha. I’m just going to do a shoulder-length something or other though πŸ™‚

Your new cut is amazing! I just have to say that both styles look beautiful on you, I bet you’re one of a very small percentage of women that can get away with the short hair, it’s awesome!

Looks great!

By the way, be careful who you donate your hair to.  A lot of places like Locks of Love are pretty much scams–they sell for profit or throw away almost all the hair that they receive.  About 2% actually go to people in need.

Just to let you know, you can actually sell long hair for quite a bit more than you’d expect.  I sold my 28″ ponytail for $1,700 last year (enough to cover most of our catering costs!!)  A lot of people think that hair is just trash and that donating it is the only use it can go to.  But it really is worth a good bit of money, especially if it is super long, healthy, and thick.  The base rate for hair is $10 an inch, but normally you can get quite a bit more!!

Your new hair is amazing, and really brings out your face! How much did you chop off?

@Oribel013690: WOW! Where’d you sell it? I might have to grow mine out now… It grows super thick and wavy and I need cash. Also, you’re getting married on my birthday πŸ™‚

@SnowPeony:  Yay for getting married on your birthday!  Also, I sold it on a website called, I think, thehairtrader.com.  But if you just google “how to sell your hair” you will come up with a number of good sites that you can sell through and plenty of advice for getting the best price.  I think I may make a post about this in money, because it is a REALLY good way to make money for your wedding!

Yeah that’s probably one of the most surprising money making tips I’ve heard! A lot of brides like to do post wedding chops, so this would be a great way to ‘earn back’ some of that lost wedding money πŸ™‚ Thanks for the tip!
