Long Locks

After thirty-one years, I think the hardest thing I've experienced is trying to grow out a short, stacked A-line/bob hair cut.  {Not really the hardest, but it ranks high up there!!!}  Since I was a junior in high school, I've had my hair in a short style.  I've been known for being the girl with short hair.  Honestly, it suited my personality to a tee, so I kept it that way for many years. 

About a year ago, I decided to cut off my relationship with the scissors for a little while.
Surprisingly, I've really stuck with it and gained some minor length on these locks. 
 It's nothing big AT ALL, but a big deal for me.  

I'm fighting a major flip-do right now because of where it hits on my shoulders/back.  In an effort to keep my 'growing' motivation.  I searched my favorite tumblr sites and saved a few of the images as inspiration. Hey, Miley Cyrus may need a few of these taped to her bathroom mirror after her drastic hair change.

While I'm not planning on going this long, it definitely helps to look at long, natural locks and keep the growin' goin'!

Braids are motivation enough to have long hair.

Sometimes your hair speaks for itself.  
No matter what pieces you are wearing, long flowing locks just take the cake. 
{Thinking Giuliana Rancic}

This could quite possibly tempt me to go back to my auburn roots.
Definitely a one-of-a-kind look.

So, here's to long locks for the upcoming winter months and also to avoiding the scissor temptation!
Braids, buns, waves, or classic sleek...
Lately, it seems that long hair is just more fun!
