No, not the musical. Just mine...
As I said yesterday...still on the fence with my new 'do. I had decided since I no longer work in food service that I would try a fun new hair style. Since it had grown out a bit, I wanted to keep some length in front, but cut it short in back. I like the inverted bobs on some people, but I feel I've out grown the bob cut...not sure why, but I think it is probably because it takes me back to 6th grade and that will just make me feel old.
So here's how bad I let it get before actually doing something about it. (To really emphasize my laziness)
It tends to grow out rather puffy and unless I put my 'anit-frizz serum' in it...well, you can see, it's frizzy.
My hairdresser asked what I wanted to do. So I said, 'I feel terrible about the short notice' and I was so glad she rescheduled on what I am sure was her day off. 'I'll just go with the usual Natalie Portman short cut.' She asked if that's really what I wanted and then she grabbed some magazines and we decided on something different.
The basics: short in the back, keep the bangs long, and some cute little wispy side curls for a little depth.
It was really cute. Yes, 'WAS'. I have never been a 'styled' girl. I am completely ignorant when it comes to hair product. I told her what I had, and she showed me how to use it to make my hair flip out a bit.
Kind of like what's going on here (only not as long past the ears, and not a bit more subtle):
And she did a great job, as usual. But I just couldn't get it to flip out on the right side. So, then, of course, I hated it. I don't want to have to play with my hair for hours in the morning. And while trying to get it to do it's thing, I realized...I am always getting 'roughed up' at the kennel! My hair is always just getting pushed behind my won't look styled for more than 20 minutes once I get to work! What's the point? I almost thought about calling her up to make an appointment to just go back to my original hair cut. But after playing with it this morning, I think I've figured out how to wear it for work. And, then I still have the option of styling it more on days off or nights out.
So, here is my 'new' hair:
Okay, I'm sorry, but while putting this silly blog about my hair together, it has dried and I'm actually quite pleased with it. It's just funky enough for an old gal like me...short in the back with a little bit of edgy bangs and sides. I guess you can't really tell from this picture, but it looks better dry, for sure:

  1. So cute!
    Totally a mugshot, though. Why? Simply because you chose a brick wall for the background. Silly girl!

  3. I'm catching up on reading my blog subscriptions. Love your cute new hair do! I realize it is probably not new to you, since this post is from a month ago. I wish I could pull off a short 'do like this. I'd love less hair maintenance. Anyway, I felt compelled to let you know this. Take care!
