New Do

Yesterday was a day. You know what I am talking about, stress, check, wanting something different (check), ready to throw in the towel (hell to the yes check).

Bad day to have a hair appointment, no?

I have been humming and hawing about a change for months now but when push comes to shove, I have not gone the change route.

Yesterday was no different, I stuck with the same colour and when she started cutting, we discussed going shorter.

FYI, my stylist is also Jay's stylist. She has been our stylist for years (lots of years). She knows Jay. Jay likes my hair long.

You see the issue right?

We decided that we would do it next time, you know to prepare Jay. So instead she trimmed off an extra inch.


I am liking it. That extra inch gave is some gusto. My hair is curly, yes, but also loses it's oommph really easily. It needs to be washed to get back it's mojo and since doing that more than once a day is in the "it will happen when hell freezes over" category, well, this is really something to make my day.

Related: there is a bottle of my Dad's best white wine chilling for later.

What I deal with daily

These yahoos were home for lunch when I set up the old tripod to take the pictures. They were a big help, can you tell?

This was seconds before I herded them out the door and back to school already for the love of all that is holy and good in the world.

New(ish) Do

Ah, much better.

So, you know you want to know Jay's response when I broke the news that I was cutting much more of my hair off next time.

It went something like this:

Me: So Kristy and I decided we are chopping it next time.
Jay: *crickets accompanied by dumbfounded look of pure confusion*
Me: I need a change! I have had my hair in this style for years. YEARS!
Jay: If you need a change, why don't you get implants?
Me: That will happen when monkeys fly out of my butt.

Okay so I modified that conversation slightly for the sake of humour but he really did say implants. I think that goes to show you the lengths (snort!) he will go to keep my hair long.

He is just lucky I didn't come home with pink buzz.

OMG - Too funny. Just like a man for that response! You are absolutely adorable and I am jealous of your curls. If you have fine hair, sometimes the weight from the length weighs them down. You could keep a tiny spray bottle filled with a bit of water in your purse to perk 'em up during the day if you want. I found one that is about the size of a pen and I keep it filled with mouthwash so I can always have fresh breath at work. Anyway, you always look great from what I have seen and I think you have a beautiful sweet smile, which is by far the easiest way to look your best! :)

Love the new "do"!

Rob is JUST the same as Jay! He likes my hair long, and it isn't long anymore, because IT DOESN'T SUIT ME LONG! Hello!? I kind of want to go even shorter, but he is like "hell, no". My stylist even asked me last week if I wanted a change. I was dying to say YES but knew Rob would hate it. Ah, the things we do for our men!!!

I wonder if the "thing" most guys have with long hair on girls is a subconscious way of rebelling against their own receding hairlines ... haha!!!!

Angella said...

I think it looks great! I hear you on change. I don't plan on cutting mine (I look horrible with short hair) but I wanted to go RED last time. I got a big, fat NO. My stylist agreed, though - too much upkeep. BOO.

I can't wait to see if you do it! :)

oh I chopped a good 2 inches off of my hair friday...feels so much better

Debbie said...

Beautiful! My hair is like yours, and when it gets too long the curls get weighed down and turn into frizz. I'm thinking of trying that new dry shampoo.

Elaine A. said...

Hair implants or boob ones? I'm confused... ;)

It looks great! Will be fun to see you with this new style too!

Miss ya, hope all is well...

Jay is too hilarious and you my girl have gorgeous locks! Guys are funny about long hair aren't they? I had a bob for years then grew it long while at home -seems so long ago-cut it to a bob again for a change and Ian asked me to grow it long again-after no comments about my hair in 20 plus years -go figure!

You are so cute! I love the curls. You should have said "Implants? That's more for men, they call it hair plugs." implants, phwey.
