.......drumroll please.......


Ta
da!!!




Whaddya think? Chopped, highlighted and lowlighted. Woo! (I turned on all the lights in the room to try to get a good shot of the colors, but it still looks kind of dark. Trust me, it has variations in color. I tried to lighten the picture up with my lame, lame picture-wizardy skills, but alas, it was beyond the capabilities of me and my Paint Shop Pro software.)

So far, only Kiddo and her grandma have seen it. (Hubby will be home in about 15 minutes...) Grandma loved it, Kiddo's response: "Mommy, you have BOY HAIR!" Um, yeah, thanks, sweetie. Of course now she's in the tub yelling to me "Hey Mommy, my hair is TOO LONG and I want to get it CUT because, um, it's itching my back...." Not gonna happen, but at least she seems to've come around to liking the shorter 'do.

I have no regrets, except why the heck did I spend almost 16 months in Wolverine Fawcett-Van Beethoven/Carol Brady hair hell? I should've just stuck with short. Please remind me of that the next time I decide to grow out my hair..... if there is ever a next time!

So, love it? Hate it? Indifferent? Hit me with your best shot, I'm a big girl (apparently a big girl with boy hair, mind you...)

Update: By request, here's a shot of the back and also the top! Sorry, took it myself, as Hubby is busily prepping the walls in the basement for painting (something we'd always meant to do but never got around to... it's funny, now we're finally doing all the things we'd always meant to, and leaving - kinda makes us wish that we'd either done them before so we could enjoy them, or weren't moving. Well, not so much on the not moving, as we definitely want to move. If only there were a Moving Fairy...) so I did the "use the mirror in the bathroom to reflect the back o' my head" technique. Clever, clever, eh? Hee!



Oh, I can tell you now that Hubby's seen it - he likes it a lot, too! So far, the verdict's been pretty much unanimous, with Kiddo the lone "BOY HAIR!" dissenter.

That looks awesome! And the smile on your face is worth a thousand petulant cat-bum faces like on the models below. Sorry, but in Australia, we call it how we see it.

A big girl with boy hair? LOL. No, no, no. It looks great. Nice and sassy! The color is fabulous.

DiPaola Momma said...

Oh I likey! You know you have one of the warmest and most inviting faces.. like you'd be a hoot to hang with;-)

Vickie said...

The cut is great! It opens up your face.

Bridget said...

It looks like it's a really good haircut! I really like the color but I think you should try growing the bangs longer for the side swept bangs look. They look nice now, I just think side swept would be great on you.

But dang it, I can't see your highlights!

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

It looks cute! Yeah! It's always a great thing not to walk away from the salon sobbing :)

Saucy Scribe Debora said...

Following over from "Life, Liberty & Pursuit" Blog - and I gotta say I love the hair. I've been going through the same hair-funk lately, letting it grow for months. Why?

I'm making my appointment today - you've reminded me how easy short hair is!

Have a great day.

I'm waiting for the Youngest to grow out of the stage of actually crying when I come home with a radical new color or cut.

I'm the only girl in the house - shut it child!
