The top picture is most recent as you can see my hair was longer and that was taken in December. As I was looking for more current pictures I couldn't find one within the past three months that I didn't have my hair in a ponytail. It's what I do. Cut my hair short, decide to grow it out, end up always having it in a ponytail, get tired of the ponytail, and then begin the cycle again.
Well after saying I was going to get a cut for the past month, today was the day. I even squeezed in an eyebrow wax. Now I just have to put in a plug for my salon, Bad Hair Day. If you are ever at the beach in Delaware and need a hair cut this is where to go. I enjoyed my hands being wrapped in warm towels, cucumbers on my eyes, with a warm towel covering them, all while the shampoo girl massaged my head. HEAVEN! I so needed it.
Anyways when it came time for the cut, I told the girl to have fun. We decided to go back to shoulder length with some long layers and she was off and cutting. When she was finished, she asked if she could straighten my hair. She thought it would be "fun". When I told her I had never straightened my hair before she was flabbergasted that I had never tried it. I explained to her that I just was not a hair and makeup kind of person and thinking it would take way too long to straighten my head of hair, never tried. So this inspired her to get out the brush and hairdryer and show me what I was missing.
The results ((drum roll, please))
Zoe's response when I picked her up from school, "Mommy you got a hair cut. It's beautiful. You finally have pretty hair like mine. "
Dylan, "It does look cool. We can call you Goldilocks."
Dave, "It looks good. You do look different in straight hair."
I have to say that it is growing on me. It feels funny to be able to run my fingers through my hair. I'm thinking I may be adding a big roll brush and nice hair dryer to my shopping cart soon!
