Taking it all off!

By
Real Estate Agent with no current broker affiliation

I received a lovely compliment from a fellow agent the other day.  He presumed I was in my early 20s.  I thanked him but informed him I am actually in my early 30s.  To most women, this is a huge compliment, but I found it just a little disturbing.  How is anyone to take me seriously if I look like I'm some college student?

So I cut my hair.  

I must admit, I had already planned to do it, but it underlined the seriousness of my professional need to do something about my look.

Here's the before:


 

And Here's the after: 

 Cindy Lamb with short hair

 

At long last, I actually look my age.

Oh wow, huge difference.  I actually do look like a college student lol, but I don't mind it.  I find that when clients know how knowledgeable I am about real estate then they do not mind as much, but hey Tom Hopkins started out when he was young and in a band uniform at that and he was able to achieve great success.

It must have been very liberating to do that!  How fun it will be to experiment with new looks after growing your hair all those years!

WOW - that really is a huge change.  What will you do with all those barrettes and elastic bands now that your hair is short?  LOL
