Guess What?

Big news! (at least, for me) I just got my hair cut! Yes, that's right. A haircut.

And you're thinking "So? Amara, that's not real exciting." You're right. A regular trim isn't very exciting. 

But you see, for me, this is different. I cut off over half of my hair, meaning it is now just below my shoulder (in the front, because the front is longer than the back just a little).

And now you're thinking "Why did you do that?" 
The short answer is easy... I wanted it shorter! :)
The long answer is I wanted it shorter, because it got in my way a lot, it took me forever to fix every morning, and, I was in need of a change. Although I did kinda like my long hair, I suddenly decided to change it up, and cut it shorter.

Do I like it? No, I don't. I love it!!!

Having shorter hair doesn't give me so many headaches! You see, because my hair was so long, thick, and heavy, it did give me headaches.

So, do you want to see some pictures? If you do (or don't) here they are:

We ponytailed it before our hairdresser cut it off. 

Nope, I wasn't nervous, because I knew what I wanted. EVEN THOUGH SHE'S CUTTING OFF A LOT OF MY HAIR!!!
I could literaly feel my head get lighter once she finished!

There it is! Almost 13 inches long. 

And here's how it looked when she finished!

Yes, I really do love it. It's so easy to take care of!

And, just because my hair is short, and I won't be able to do most of the styles in my previous post, doesn't mean I still can't do some fun ones! Like the one below:

It's a lace fishtail tieback. Fun!

What am I going to do with my long ponytail? Well, to be honest, I'm not sure yet. I might donate it, I might sell it, I don't know. Yet. 

There you go! "The New Amara." :)

In Christ,

Hairstyle Gallery ~ Number 1

Welcome to my hairstyle gallery! Or at least, the hairstyle gallery I have so far. Styling my hair is my "hobby" you could say, among a few other things. I've been growing my hair out for a long time... about 4 years. With hair this thick and heavy, I like coming up with hairstyles to keep the hair off my neck - and pretty ones to boot!

Some of these hairstyles are harder than others, but I enjoy a challenge.

These are (some of) the styles I've done so far:

Dutch Braid Bun (with flexi!)

Side French Braid

Double Intertwined French Braided Updo

Four French Braided

Messy Fishtail Braid

Curly Messy Bun

Double Rope Twisted Bun

Snake Braid Rolled Updo

Dutch Braid Vertical Bun (with flexi!)

Cris-Cross Spiral Bun (with flexi!)

Waterfall Braid (with flexi!)

Double Rope Updo

Rolled Braid Side Bun

Double Dutch Braids with Messy Waves

Triple Intertwined Pancaked Dutch Braid Updo

If you want the link of the tutorial of this hairstyle that I did, here it is:

Mouse Ears :)

Double Dutch Braid Rolled Updo

Rope Twisted Pinwheel Bun


If you're wondering how long my hair is right now...

Just a litte below my waist. 

Have you seen "Beyond the Mask"? Well, I tried to duplicate one of Charlotte's hairstyles (Charlotte is the heroine of the movie) three different times.  I hope to duplicate more soon! ;)

First attempt.

Second attempt.

And the third attempt. 

This is the original picture of that hairstyle.

You can't really see the back of it, though. But basically, it's a bunch of pincurls, or loops, pinned onto the center back of her head. 

I hope you enjoyed these hairstyles! I definately enjoy creating them. :)

In Christ,
