Don't worry, I didn't use a flobee. Only professionals were involved in this procedure. What did I do? I cut off all my hair.
Trust me, it was long overdue. To totally age myself, I was starting to resemble this old SNL character
Yep, Roseanne Rosannadanna. Loved her!
My hair had gotten long. It was down below the braline on my back. It was about as long as I ever remember growing my hair. I have very thin, babyfine hair, but it's very curly, so it looks much thicker than it is. Well, that and hair product make it look thicker. The problem is that between the winter dryness and too long since I'd had a haircut, it was getting bushier and frizzier and just out of control. I would tame it down and pull it all back in a barrette to go in public, or I'd put it all in a scrunchy on the top of my head ala Pebbles when at home. Neither look was particularly flattering.
Right now, my hair looks cute. It's a stacked layered bob with the front slightly longer than the back. My natural haircolor is dark dull, matte brown with occasional silvery threads to highlight. My new hair color is an all over warm reddish-brown with lovely gold strands delicately highlighting my hair. The stylist blew it out and used a flat iron, so I look very, very posh right now.
In fact... it looks a lot like Posh Spice aka Victoria Beckham's hair in this shot, which I realized after I came home and saw her picture on a website. That's okay, I don't mind if she copies me.
How do you get a new style like this? Go to a salon, tell the stylist you want it all taken off. Tell her you suck at styling hair, will soon be spending two weeks travelling through China, and will then come home with a toddler. You need a low, low, low maintenance new look. I like it today. Let's see what horrors I can bestow on my new look when I wash and style it myself.
