MILF? *

I know you all are waiting with baited breath to find out what I did with my hair. Let's review my before picture:

Before

My hair is all stringy and full of split ends. The color is a mess. There is no shape. It needed a change and it needed one bad.

After

The cut is very similar - I wanted to keep length for the all-important pony tail. There are some long bangs cut in that blend with the rest of my hair when I want them to. But the color is what I am most excited about. I've wanted to go darker for a while, but my stylist has always talked me out of it for varying reasons. Not this time! She did convince me to put some summery highlights in, and a bit of red.

I know what you're thinking and yes, I have a license for that gun. Also, has my face always had that shape? Where did that chin come from?! Wow.

I am really happy with how it turned out. All you ladies out there (and probably some of you guys, too) know how great it is to go to a salon and get pampered. I love getting my hair washed and brushed, it's so relaxing. I didn't let myself think about my mommy-do list or feel guilty for one second about spending money on myself. My "me time" has fallen by the wayside now that Maddie is around. While it's true I want to spend my free time with her, it's important that I charge my batteries with frivolous things, too. Although, really, there is nothing frivolous about getting one's hair did.

Yay for pampering yourself. And it looks so nice, too.

As you read & scroll this post it totally looks like pic 2 is going to be topless so my excitement about that totally bled into my opinion about your new hairstyle. My opinion about your haistyle is biased by almost seeing your boobs, so it's like "BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS oh... yeah nice hair."

You look gorgeous!! Just in time for birthday fun too!!! I looove the hair color - I'm so glad you went darker!

Aunt Becky said...

You're gorgeous. But that's a boring comment. So I will give you this: your post actually cracked me up. Seriously, cracked up.

Rebecca said...

MILF indeed. Good luck Mike. ( Am a little jealous as I was set to have my hair cut this week but some serious bills got in the way - but soon, soon!)

Amy said...

I think it's great!!! Love the color and the cut! It suits you very well! Good job backing the stylist down and getting what YOU want!

Dana said...

OK, it speaks sadly of my grasp of internet lingo, but what is MILF? And HAWT? I've come up with comical, but inappropriate, ideas but I'm still curious.

Bravo on the hair! See how that dark color makes your eyes "pop?" I've recently had a hair fiasco that I will soon be posting about. Stay tuned. ;)

fantastic!

You do look absolutely stunning. I'm so jealous. Last haircut I had I was drunk and found some scissors, and had the brilliant idea that it would be fun to try and do it myself. Yikes. :) And I'm sad to say that I saw the same thing as BHJ. I was like... "DUDE! She is going to be sooo pissed at Mike." Then I heaved a sigh of relief when I scrolled down farther and saw that the girls had, in fact, not come out to play for this post, keeping the focus on the fab hair! :)

You look great :D

Natalie said...

great hair! i just had mine cut, but i am scared to let them highlight it here. everyone here looks so streaky. i think i'll just wait until i get to america to do the works!

Nanette said...

It looks FABULOUS! Great choice!!!

LiteralDan said...

Maybe it's because I'm a guy, but I didn't see anything wrong with your hair in the Before picture-- you look great in both. But hey, glad you got some "you time"-- it's definitely a necessity for the retention of sanity.
