Enough with the hair already!














I promise I will stop posting pictures of my hair.  This is the last one.  

I'm sharing with you because I've been kind of busy the last week.  I went to a walk in place again last week, and this time I didn't walk out.  I let an old woman who used to cut hair at a retirement home ATTEMPT to fix the hatchet job I did on my head.  Needless to say, this woman, who cuts hair for $12 a pop was not exactly Vidal Sassoon.  I walked out of the joint looking like Doris Day.  Friends and neighbors commented "Oh, you got your hair cut!!!" And then there would be uncomfortable silence, because most people were incapable of saying it looked good.  It was BAAAD.

So today, I took both my kids to a reputable salon full of chic women and I shelled out the dough for a good cut!  Thank goodness I did.  Six months of growing out my short hair  down the drain, but at least I look like it's 2008 instead of 1958.  

The good news is, I look like my "Design-Her Girl" again!  (See sidebar.)

I won't be around until next week, we're heading to Vermont to visit with my husband's family.

Have a great weekend...and remember-never EVER cut your own hair.

P.S. Notice my eyebrows-I went to the Arch Angelz for my first eyebrow session-they did an awesome job with rehabilitating my over plucked brows.  I am in the process of growing them in, and in two weeks I return to get my arch refined.  This girl is turning it around!!!

Footnote:  For those who are asking-there will be no photos of the Doris Day hair posted for your entertainment.  I want to forget it ever happened.

Looks good dollface! The hair and the eyebrows look great. I forgot all about the eyebrow place!!! Maybe I should apply for a job there and show them a thing or two *wink*.

It's awesome. And I"m with ya on not posting the Doris Day. I think we can all imagine that one! The internet is forever, so one must be prudent. This reminds me that I need a good cut myself.

I love it!

I did the same thing - took a year to grow it out and then chopped it all off. I am once again trying to grow it out... long and slow process!

You look great!

VERY cute cut!

believe it or not, the husband cuts my hair.

the last time, as I watched in the mirror, he shook is head and sighed.

NOT what your stylist should do . . .

Brie said...

very cute!! I can't wait to learn more about the arch angels!!! I need them!

jerseygirl89 said...

Your hair looks great! (And I heart you on the cutting your own hair thing - I did it too. Bad. Very Bad.)

Shelby said...

It looks great! What a Hottie McHotterson you are!

emersonsmama said...

1. Hair looks lovely.
2. Brows look amazing! (jealous)
3. Have a great vacation!
4. We're arriving in VT Saturday. I'm doubting you'll be sticking around for that long, but leave me a message if you are and maybe I can sneak in a break from unpacking and we can meet up.

PS - Didn't I warn you? Never ever take short cuts with your hair. It is NOT worth any money you might save. Just think, had you listened to me, you would be $12 richer. That's some serious money. You could buy like 3 or 4 lattes with that. :-)

PPS - Only handing out the hair advice because I suffered my own el cheap-o butcher job in eighth grade. Really made the end of middle school pleasant as you can imagine. Girls are so sweet and considerate of each others' feelings at that age.

You look beautiful, and they brows are great!
