Would You Ever Chop Off Your Hair?

My friend Sally did, and I am so impressed. As if it doesn’t already take guts, confidence, and blind faith to change your cut or color (I’m a total wimp, if you hadn’t noticed), she went and chopped it ALL off. On her LUNCH BREAK. That’s nothing short of badass in my book. Sally says her hair had become unruly, unpredictable, and unflattering—frizzy in some spots and lank and greasy in others. She had pretty much tried every product, and even changed her diet, when she brought this photo of Audrey Tatou to her stylist. Et voila. No muss, zero frizz, and an edgier tousled look that Sally loves. You can read all about her big cut and see before pics over at Already Pretty, but first: Are any of you pondering a major makeover? Would you take a leap like this? Have you?
