A new do

Between my best friend and my husband, I was peer pressured into going a bit drastic with my hair.
Now most people may not think it was very drastic at all but for me it was a risk!

I very rarely get my hair cut let alone done. Usually when I need my haircut I just ask Mister to cut it for me. My hair is usually in a bun type thing anyway. I don’t have the time nor want to blow dry and then straighten my hair. There’s a lot of it and it’s thick and naturally wavey. It’s a bit time consuming and my arms get tired!
When I have gone somewhere to get color/highlights on my hair one of two things happen….#1- you can’t tell anything was done or #2- I don’t think it. Big waste o’ time to me!

When I mentioned that I wanted to get my hair done, my best friend took no time at all to text me a picture what cut she thought I should go with.

Loved the cut but wasn’t sure it would look good on me (I have a chunky face) and I didn’t think I wanted to go that short. I showed Mister the picture & he agreed with BF.
Then we started talking about color. They both said that I needed to go blonde. That part made me more nervous than anything! After talking with both of them I, nervously, jumped on board & made the appointment.

When I arrived at my appointment, sat in the chair, & showed the picture to the stylist she wasted no time in getting to work.

*I look like I belong in Whoville!*

*Foils are going on with blonde painted on my hair*

image *Took 2 to blow dry my hair & straighten because we were running out of time*

My appointment was at 12:45….I didn’t walk out of there until 3pm! I have too much hair!

Called Mister to come pick me up & his eyes lit up when he saw me! I love my new cut & color! I had to come home and change my clothes from frumpy to “made an effort” look. I cannot dress frumpy right now with this new do. It just doesn’t look right. It’s forced me to pay attention to what I’m going to put on.


The new do 🙂

I want to encourage any of you that are thinking about going for a change, DO IT! The risk was worth the outcome for me & I hope it turns out that way for you too!
