Oops, I did it again...

Okay...so here's the end of the story. After I wisely walked out of Great Clips I went home and read my daughters a story. As I was reading, of all things, "Rapunzel", my mind went back to my hair. Bangs are all the rage these days, so I decided to sneak over to the bathroom and cut myself some bangs. I pulled a pair of scissors out of the cabinet and snip, snip-hey-they looked pretty good!



The only problem was the front sides needed a little trim. No problem. Snip...oooh, awesome. Now the other side, snip...OH SHIT. Too short. I'm screwed.

(NOTICE I AM NOT SMILING IN THIS PICTURE!)

I have a lopsided dutch boy mullet.



I'm not going to touch it for 2 weeks, and I've made an appointment with a professional. I don't even want to hear what she's going to say when she sees the butcher job I've done on myself.



It's a sickness I tell you. I should have let them do it at Great Clips. I'm sure the drug addicts who work there would have done a better job than I did.

I decided to put the picture back in. The ones below are the cute ones, with the hair behind my ears. As you can see, when it's not tucked away, it's lopsided and just plain BAD. Hopefully I will learn from this!!! Duh.

I think it looks cute, but if you're concerned... lots of headbands. LOTS of headbands. They've gotten me through tons of botched at-home bang jobs :)

Jill, Jill, Jill. shaking head. I learned a long time ago, no matter how fed up with my hair I am, I will never touch it with scissors. BTW, I did see the pics, and it didn't look too bad....maybe you have missed your calling. Didn't you say your husband wanted you to go back to work? Perhaps Great Clips? :)

i saw the photos, too- and your hair actually looks really good with bangs! (i have been reading your blog for a while, but decided i should de-lurk in order to give you a compliment!) :)

I can see it and your bangs look adorable!!! you're adorable! so the tennis look...not me- i look awful in hats ;)

DysFUNctional Mom said...

You are BRAVE, cutting your own hair! I get so frustrated and have such a hard time finding a stylist that I like. I have a great one right now, so I'm convinced she's going to catch ebola or get eaten by angry squirrels.

Lane Boyz Mom said...

Awww crap, I missed the picture!! I'm sure it looked fine, but if your hairdresser questions you, throw Great Clips under the bus;) NEVER take credit, LOL

Just a suggestion;) HEEHEE

And bangs are really coming back in style? I guess I missed that? Hmm.....

Lane Boyz Mom said...

OKAY...wait, I did get to see the pictures, what is wrong with me...DUH SCROLL DOWN, can I blame it being early??

I think you did great, what are you talking about? Heck, I'd let you cut my hair...geez woman, you had me thinking you really did a hack job! LOL

LunaNik said...

Oh girl...when will we ever learn. I, too, continue to butcher my hair on a regular basis. It's like an addiction or something. Don't worry, it'll grow soon enough. On the bright side, bangs look great on you!

Belle in Bloom said...

Your bangs look great. Just keep the one side pinned behind your ear. I can't believe you did that yourself. It's really cute!

Marfa said...

Don't give it another thought. Bangs grow out fairly quickly. The last time I had them cut the stylist left them too long. So I did a home job on them and I didn't quite step over the "too short" line, but I balanced back and forth on it. Now they...ok...not great, but ok. We all do the bangs thing at some point. By the way, yours don't look nearly as bad as you think they do. You could just say that you're letting your hair grow and you're at that awkward stage.

I know what you mean about the drug addicts that work at those hair places. Sometimes I get so desperate for a cut that I go in, but I ALWAYS regret it.

Shelby said...

I like the side-sweep thing you've got going on. I'm glad bad haircuts can almost always be made cute with one special hairstyle. The only problem is, then you have to wear it like that every day. Woe is me. I can't wait until mine grows out another 18 inches and I can do stuff with it again!

I think you did a fine job! I know I could have NEVER cut my own hair. It would be horrible. You do not look like you have a dutch mullet either!!!! :)

Anonymous said...

Jaina said...

You're a brave soul cutting your own hair. It's definitely one of those things that I leave to the pros.

Queen Mommy said...

Woman you are BRAVE and totally adorable!

Hair Girl said...

DUDE!!!!
I am so sad for you. I do love your hair shorter, but it would be great if it was even. Thank goodness that you have an appointment. Keep the bangs and the rest will always grow.

Ha! I think your bangs look fine! Just wear them with attitude! Now, let me tell you about the time I decided to pluck my own eyebrows. . . ..
