I did it!
I had been on the fence for months about chopping my hair, but when I read about the Kappa Delta chapter at Saint Louis University doing “Kuts for Confidence” to honor two sisters affected by cancer, I knew it was time.
I was diagnosed with cancer two weeks after my twentieth birthday, and it rocked my world. Multiple surgeries later, the cancer was gone and so was my confidence. Winter wasn’t so hard, but it became impossible to hide the scars when the weather got warmer. So I wore cardigans for an entire summer. My mom tried everything, even buying me my first Lilly dress! So I came up with a plan – I would grow my hair out, and it would cover my scars on my arm, especially in photos.
But I have decided that life is too short to hide behind my hair. My long hair helped me to gain my confidence again, and now, I hope that it will help another girl gain her confidence. I’m sending 12 inches of hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, and I couldn’t be more excited about it!
If you have any tips for short hair, please share them in the comments, email, or tweet them to me @seersuckersass!
