Time for a change

I've had pretty much the same haircut for quite some time now.  Sure, it's changed a little, an inch or two longer or an inch or two shorter, but it's just variations on the same theme.  So I decided it was time for a change.  I want to grow my hair out longer (not sure how long, just "longer"), but since that isn't an instant change, I decided to get bangs.  Here's the before:

I forgot to take an actual "before" picture, so this is another picture from our Chicago trip
And here's the after:

I really like them (at least so far!).  It will be a little more work styling in the morning, because I have a funny cowlick in the front that I need to tame down with the blowdryer and flat iron, but I think I'll be okay with it.  It's a good "season" (calendar-wise and in my life) for it right now.  I wouldn't have wanted this in summer, because it's not very beach or lake friendly, but it should be okay now for fall and winter.  We'll see how I feel next summer!  Also, it's a good season in my life for a change right now, because the kids are fairly settled into the routines and I have the time to spend a little bit more time doing my hair.

You look amazing! What a simple, yet dramatic change! Is the colour new too?

Thanks everyone!
The color is the same, although it does look darker. And it's actually my natural color (and I like it)!!
