Today I got a new haircut and color! I haven't done this for myself for quite some time. Like I mentioned a few posts ago, it was my gift to myself when I reached my 30 pound goal to get a bit of a make-over. Ryan was really nervous about it. He always is when I get antsy to do something to my hair. I was really excited because I have been so bored with my hair and it just gets tied in a knot on the top of my head every day because I don't know what to do with it and its so boring. So here is a before picture. (my hair was in a braid all day before this, thus the weird texture)
I hadn't had more than a trim in a long long time, so this is way over due! And the after:
I love the cut. Its not too drastic, I probably would have gone shorter, but to spare my husband I think its just right, I can still put it up if I want to, but its good for going curly or for straightening. The only thing I'm a little unsure about is the color. I asked the girl to put some red and blonde in my hair, just for a little something different. I didn't tell her how much of either color, just kind of let her go with it, and i'm practically a blonde! Okay, maybe i'm exaggerating. Its hard to tell in the pictures above, so I took a few picture of the top of my head to give you a better idea of the color.
I've never had quite this much color in my hair, definitely not this much blonde anyway! I like it, but I'm just not totally sure about it. The poor girl who did it could tell I was freaking out a little and offered to have my come back and add some more brown back in to darken it up a little. I told her to give me a few days to adjust and see what I think. I might adjust and decide I like it just fine, who knows!? It really is pretty, its just so different from my normal flat brown hair that I don't know what to think of my own refliection! The overall look is beautiful though and I'm happy I took an evening to pamper myself a little. Now I just need a new outfit to go with it...one that actually fits! (Oh, and do you think I should have her cut some shorter pieces in the front, you know those trendy side swept bang kinda things? or just keep the cut the way it is?)
