New 'Do

I got my hair cut. A few of them, actually.

To be honest, I got it cut pretty drastically right before my art show, but didn't like it so I got a redo. My hair was about mid-back length, and I loved it, but it was such an ordeal in the morning to get ready. I'm already getting up at 5 AM so I really don't want to spend any more time getting ready than I have to. That, and being a Mom and an art teacher, I was always getting stuff in my hair -- paint, peanut butter, silly putty... So off it came.

I kind of like it. It's kind of got a Maggie Gyllenhaal thing going on. It's fun and girly. And it's easy to fix -- my hair is naturally curly (really curly!) and so I was spending a lot of time trying to tame it by force. Now I just add some "product," scrunch it a little, and dry it with a diffuser, and I'm good to go. I might get it layered just a little bit more so it's not so angular, but I like this "inverted bob" thing.

It's interesting how a new hairdo can make your whole world a happier place. I'm not good at being a girl. I have horrible nails, and I don't spend a lot of time on hair and makeup. I don't have a clue what to do with eye makeup, but when I get a haircut that I really like, my whole day just goes better. Of course, having a little extra time to sleep instead of trying to beat my hair into submission might have a little to do with that, too.
Of course, that all changed when I ate a Caribou Coffee bar for breakfast this morning and realized when I got to school that I have little black coffee bean pieces stuck in my teeth. *sigh* You can't have everything.

Nice hairdo!

I have been trying to find a decent hairdresser all year but have failed :-( so I had my GF cut it instead! Turned out great and I saved my self some needed cash too! ;-)

I have real curly/wavy hair also and find it weird when people comment "I'd love to have your curls" lol I always say "You can have them"! Give me straight, always perfect hair anyday!

Great do. Nothing puts a kick in your step like a new do you like.

Looks great! I agree, having a nice haircut changes everything. I'm totally with you on the eye-makeup thing. Sometimes I want to wear eyeshadow, but I wouldn't have a clue how to put it on. I'm sure if I tried, I'd look like I was fresh out of the 80s or something.

The hair looks fantastic!

I am contemplating cutting my hair but it's been long and blonde for so I'm used to it.

I'M a chicken...a couple bad hair experiences and you run from people wielding scissors and blow dryers.
