It should be a requirement, upon cutting a foot of hair off of one's head, that pictures be shared of the transformation. Regardless of one's feelings on having one's self openly inspected by others.
Most of these pictures were taken with my phone by my 5 year old--that is my disclaimer. 12"-13" of old hair is on it's way to Locks of Love, while I am thrilled to have gotten rid of the heavy, tangly mass. Yay! It's about time, and it feels great.
