It's Only Hair

Most of you who see me on a regular basis have already seen my new 'do. This is for those dear friends and devoted readers who live far away, or who have just been out of town for the past week. I got my hair cut. I didn't realize what a big deal it would be. Some people at church on Sunday didn't even recognize me. Crazy!

I've been thinking about this for quite some time. My hair just kept getting longer and longer because I didn't have time to keep going to hair appointments. I was actually doing my hair less and less and, as a result, feeling less and less cute. I told my fabulous hairdresser, Tatyana, "Cut it all off so that I have to do it!" And she did. The ponytail she cut off the back measured eleven inches. Who knew all that hair was back there? Anyway, you know what they say--short hair is easier to do and long hair is easier not to do. It's so true! I can get out of the shower and have my hair completely done in eight minutes (you know I timed it)!

My Michael was quite shocked when I returned from my hair appointment. He loves it but he didn't know what I'd been planning. A bob is actually his favorite haircut. He has a picture of a model taped inside one of his old journals, she was his "ideal woman" and she is a brunette with a bob. I like to tease him that now he is married to his favorite model.

















So, there you have the lowdown on my haircut and some photos to go with it. I tried to take a couple myself and then had Teensy give it a go. I think she did a pretty good job!

It looks stunning. It actually looks about twice as thick! Now that's a good hair cut.

Emily said...

I think you look great, very fun, and flirty!

Nice job. I was just about to get this haircut myself, and now I'll look like a copycat. Well, I'll just go to Tatyana and tell her to make mine easy and NOT like Mendy's then we'll be all ok.

You hair is adorable! Very flattering! Whitney's right, it does look thicker.

What a cute face you have in that picture. Oh, yes, the hair is great too. Now maybe you've given your little sister the courage to post pictures of her new hair cut. How fun to actually look like the girl of your hubby's dreams!

Jen said...

Of course Teensy did a good job taking the photo. The girl is at her best around a camera - usually in front of it rather than behind it, but still! Love the new do. I can't even remember what it looked like before!
