Haircut

A woman's hair, it's no big deal right?


If your hair is no big deal, then clearly you aren't doing it right.
A bad hair cut now and then is just a part of life.

Clearly, you've had one before and lived to B*!ch about it.

I suffered in silence with a bad cut all through the holidays.

"I DO wish she'd stop greeting everyone with 'Happy Hair-do-Days? Not for me!'"
So finally decided to go to a new place and get a new do for the new year.
It came well recommended (which later turned into, oh, yeah, I don't think of the girls who did my hair are still there). At first glance, every stylist's hair was bad. Not weird or wacky. I like weird and wacky. I like people who dare with their hair.

A long standing tradition in the women in my family.
But in truth, a lot of really good stylists have bad hair. So I sat down in the chair, showed them a picture of Emma Thompson and shut my eyes.
The Result?

Emma, I ain't. But then, I wasn't working with the same set of tools to as her to begin with.

Don't hate it, don't love, love, love, love it. Which, in the long, sometimes antagonistic, sometimes almost accepting, always contentious  relationship with my hair, isn't bad at all.

  1. Oh, I LOVE it! And it usually takes about a week before I've washed and styled it enough times to like it. I think it's cute! And I'm going to get my hair cut this afternoon....should I be afraid? hahaha!

    2. Now it's scheduled for tomorrow! And it's the same lady that always cuts my hair so hopefully I'll be safe. I'm going to do a post about my hair soon....more about color than style though! Hugs!

  2. A good hair cut is the key to any style. I think yours looks nice. I have to have a little curl or looked like a peeled onion.

  3. The picture I take is of Raquel Welch. I keep thinking I will someday find the stylist who can make me look like that, but no luck so far. You came out looking a heck of a lot more like Emma than I ever looked like Raquel, so I'd say you can mark a win in your column. Seriously, it's a really cute style. You look great!

    1. Thanks! You have a certain Raquellishness to you!

  4. I don't love my hair for at least a week after it's cut. I'm thinking you definitely have the Emma look; it's pretty cute and I think you'll love it more in a few!

  5. Personally, I think you look fabutastic!

  6. I need a haircut badly and I was thinking about going to one of those walk-ins tomorrow. Hope mine turns out as good as yours! I loved that "long standing tradition". Haha! I remember the beehives, at least that's what we called them.

    1. Oh, yes, that isn't even as high as Aunt Ileene got her hair. That was subdued for church!

  7. I think it is just darling. It looks great on you. I went out in the snowstorm today to keep an appt with the "hair girl" that I made 10 weeks ago. It was worth the effort- I can see again! xo Diana

  8. You're always your own worst critic. At least, that's what I try to tell myself when I get fed up with my hair not doing what I want.

    1. I'd agree with that if I didn't have a son living at home. Young men save the kind words for romance so none are left for Mom, I think.

      Delete
    2. That made son sound mean, he actually wants me to leave my hair as it was most of his childhood, Longer and always in a ponytail!

  9. Like the hair. Good choice - does play up the resemblance. But if you're going to be Emma Thomson who is going to be you?
    Catching up with your blog today. Good luck finding a balance you can live with.

    1. Maybe she can play me in the movie of my life - it should be a musical, of course, in 3-D because how else would you fully appreciate all the nudity?

  10. Your hair is fine dear you always look good
    I haven't had a great hair cut since my stylist quit just all at once from doing hair , said she hated it and she was best person I ever went to , I always left feeling so pretty and looking good sort of feeling.
    Now I always can't wait to get home and wash and redo my hair
    Where have all the good hair stylist gone ???????????????????

    1. My niece was one and she said that basically it was a much more physically demanding job than people realized. She was in a snazzy salon and she worked 6 days a week (her choice) and stood for hours with her arms at funny angles and handled a lot of chemicals that she wasn't happy with, so she quit. I can totally see that. Hope you find a wonderful stylist soon.

  11. ps Love your glasses LOL forgot to tell you

  12. I think all your new haircut is missing is some of those cool plaid ribbons like the model in the first photo! That would top it off nicely!!!

    I understand the tussle with hair. My stylist who I've been seeing for about 20 years now is always trying to make me go daring and glam. All I want is a nice, safe suburban housewife 'do that just doesn't look as if I've given up on life. I'm now in a sleek, low-sitting bun phase (with full bangs) and trying to grow my hair out a bit more so that I don't have so many loose ends coming out from under the hundreds of hairpins I need to keep it halfway in place. It's driving me crazy!!!


    So hats off to you...or hats on, depending on how you're feeling about your hair today! :-)

    1. Sleek bun with bangs is just the right look, not too fussy, not too casual. And if you want to dress it up - oh, those bows!
