Here Today, Hair Tomorrow

This is a picture of Sabrina and I gussied up to go to her cheerleading banquet Sunday night.

And this is a picture of my hair after a blissful 2 hours of salon time.

Things to note:

 - I don't get my hair cut very often ($$$), so when I do, I have my stylist (whom I have known since I was 14 and who knows my hair better than I do, and it's my head) trim it ever so slightly shorter than I would like it to be.  My hair grows incredibly fast, and if I didn't give myself this extra trim, I'd be whining that my hair is too long again 2 weeks later.

- Speaking of 2 weeks, I have learned to give myself a 2 week buffer before I can truly decide if I dislike a 'do.  I no longer accept what I see as soon as the cut is finished because I haven't a single prayer of making it look the same way on my own (good or bad), so I have to play with it for awhile before I really know.  It took me a looooooooong time and a lot of frustration to figure this out, but you don't have to.  There you go.

- She used mousse and a round brush, but not flat iron.  This accounts for the current mushroom-ness of the 'do.

- Photography is not one of Chris's strong suits.

Overall, I'm happy, I desperately needed some of the heavy bulk to go away and to break up some of the, I don't know, solidness of the look.  It's a little soccer momish, but I'll work on it.  Or I'll take myself to Ulta and spend an obscene amount of money.

  1. I think it looks great short and long, but I understand getting annoyed at the long hair. I cut mine as short as I can bob it without a shelf cut, and then I don't cut until it's absolutely driving me nuts - every 6-8 months maybe? ha! Possibly I should do it a little more often.
