Well, here it is...

Let me first start out by saying that I did not intend to get my haircut like the Marcia picture at the very end of the last post. I had my tongue planted firmly in my cheek when I was posting that. I hesitated to even post the picture because I actually thought it was a very cute cut.

My intention was to post a picture of Marcia Brady circa 1981 when she starred in the very lovely, The Brady Girls Get Married. Or perhaps circa 1988 when she starred in the equally charming, A Very Brady Christmas.

However, this morning when I was doing an image search, the images of Marcia with the hair I wanted to post were all linked to porn sites.

I kid you not.

Apparently there are a lot of sick people out there who like to think of Marcia and Jan as more than sisters. And I didn't want to go to their websites, much less download something from their dirty ole computers to my relatively clean one. Although, the cleanliness of my computer could be debated.

But back to my hair, which I am assuming is why you are all here on a Friday night in the first place. Shouldn't you be grilling out or playing with the kids or watching something on your DVR? Like Top Chef...which is what I will be watching this evening with my husband.

I love to watch a bunch of chefs scurry around and cook things I can't pronounce that would be featured on menus in restaurants I can't afford. Not sure why I find it so thrilling. But I do.

I guess the reason that I keep getting off track is that I'm not that excited to show you my new hair do. I wish I had gone shorter. But I guess it's better to wish I had gone shorter than to wish I hadn't chopped all of my hair off. I have already made another appointment for the beginning of July and I plan on going shorter and sassier then.

But in the meantime, here is my official before shot. (Why is it that my hair always looks really good right before a haircut causing me to question the 204 other times previously that it looked horrible? )
And here is the after:



I know. I know. It's not much of an after picture because it really doesn't look like I got much done to it. It looks very similar to the picture from the magazine I showed the stylist but not exactly like it.

I wish I had just gone for the inverted bob (or "the Christie" as my friend Christie likes to call it!) But there's always next time.

On the plus side though, this stylist was already there when I arrived at 8:30. I love the color job she did and we got along great! And, she charges almost $17 less than the old stylist.

So check back with me on July 1st when I plan to show you the real after picture...hopefully one with me sporting a sassy inverted bob.

And I'm not sure why, but every time I look at myself in the mirror today, I feel like I should be watching the Fonz at a demolition derby or hanging out with my sister Pinky.

It's cute, even if it isn't as short as I, and apparently you, thought it would be. I'm very happy that you've found someone that can take care of you! :)

Happy Memorial Weekend!

I think it looks great and I can not wait to try out your stylist.

Have a great Weekend !!

Melissa said...

I think it looks great and maybe taking it slow will make it easier to get used to?

You're the first and only person I've ever hear mention what I've always thought was my own personal hair psychosis. I call it "The Leather Tuscadero Phenomenon." I'm going through it today, too. Your hair, though, is really cute! I did the gradual approach to short hair and it's mostly worked out well, preventing total hair shock. It is a wonderful thing to find a great stylist. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

If it helps at all, the inverted bob would have been a pain to style every day and you'd have to get it shaped more often.

Mari said...

It looks cute! This way you can work into it being shorter a little slower and it'll be easier to get used to.

beth said...

Your hair looks that good before you go?!? Mine is always pulled back and greasy (from not being washed in days) with roots a mile long.

Love the after though! Looks great!

Chelle' said...

Love the after. Love it more than if you had gone shorter with the inverted bob.

Thanks for the pictures. :0)

Love it and the color! And she's cheaper, too? I say she's a keeper! ;)

McMommy said...

Oohhh!! You look FABU!! Now does it feel weird when you wash it? Like where did all hair go?? I always go through that after I give mine a good chop!

Christina said...

I love it. Actually I love both so you could go either way except the shorter one is probably easier. The color is great. How come my color never comes out this nice? Glad to hear you liked the new stylist and also the price difference was a real plus.

I love it, it looks great! Long enough to still "pony up" if you need to...it's adorable!

The Walsh's said...

Oh I SOOO see a difference! I'm all about subtle changes. I think it looks awesome...and I think we have the same camera :)

Jaina said...

I think it's cute, I can totally see the difference. I bet you'd look great with that inverted bob though.

Donna said...

Looks great. Take a look at my friend Deb's hair... I think this do would look great on you.
