So, after months of saying I needed a haircut...yesterday I finally actually got a haircut. My attempt in the morning while my girl's were at dance was a failure so I went back in the evening after supper while Russ stayed home with the little rugrats and was met with success. I had the back trimmed and my layers restored. I actually went back after the original cut to have the guy cut a bit more off the front to frame my face. Now it's back to the cut I like.
I also colored my hair. But out of a box...I decided that our budget just didn't allow for a professional's help but I was really getting bored with what I had. I went out on a limb this time and dyed my hair a color I've never dyed it before...so after a night of turning our bathroom into what Russ says resembled "the set of Psycho" my hair is now red. Not red, red but a darker red (like mahogany) with some lighter red (copperish) highlights. It's actually not that dramatic of a change and I really like it. I'm not very impressed with my highlighting job (it's much trickier than it looks and with as thick of hair as I have...) but it doesn't totally suck. So overall I'm much happier with my hair than I was last week. Now I just need an excuse to sport it for the public. For some reason I'm just not motivated enough to style my hair for a day of cleaning, cooking & tushie wiping. (Go figure!)
