Well, that didn't go very well now, did it? Let's not talk of it again.
Okay since everybody else jumped off the bridge I had to, too (everybody being Lulu and Sophie) . I went and Simpsonized myself. Here I am in all my Springfieldian glory...
This was one of the few times I wish I wore glasses all the time so that I wouldn't have to choose from their very skimpy selection of eyebrows. I know thick eyebrows are in, but DUDE! I also went ahead and made my hair a little shorter because guess what? I'm getting a hair cut on Tuesday! At a real salon! I'm so psyched because I haven't gotten a "real" hair cut in quite some time. I used to get my hair done at this really trendy place here in town and the girl did an awesome job. When I first started going there I only had one child and they only charged me $40 for a haircut. That was what I paid for my haircuts in Savannah, so it seemed reasonable. Slowly but surely, appointment by appointment, the cost kept going up. The last time I got my hair cut there was not long after Punkin' was born. It was $60 for just a shampoo, cut and blowdry. With tip it was $70. I'm sorry, but that is just TOO much for a haircut. I KNOW it's harder than it looks, but $60??!! Seriously? So, I had to cut ties (pun intended) with that salon.
And finding a new hairdresser is a big deal, right? I know in a recent post I was all "what's the big deal, it'll grow back" but I still want to maintain some semblance of style, you know? Even if they cut it off to a nub I still want it to be a stylish nub. So, I did what anybody would do. I stopped a stranger on the street and asked her where she got her hair cut. Don't tell me you've never done it. Or at least wanted to! Actually, she wasn't a complete stranger -- her son(?) goes to the same daycare that Punkin' goes to. She had this amazingly cute hairstyle and so I asked. And you'll never believe where she gets it cut! Cost Cutters for $11.99!! So, I went and got a great cut, too. I wore it in that style for a while, but I get tired of the same hairstyle month after month and I couldn't decide what I wanted to do next. I've been back a time or two and she's always done what I asked but I haven't been blown away.
And so now, my mother has found a new stylist and she (my mother, not the stylist) has graciously and generously given me the money to get my hair cut with this girl too. My mother is self-admittedly obsessive about her hair so for my mother to recommend someone is a big deal. So I'm excited. I'm contemplating two haircuts. I need some feeback because Mr. Husband is like, "Whatever you want." I'm thinking either the new Katie Holmes (but NOT the "Posh"):
Or Selma Blair from a couple of years ago:
I really like the Selma Blair cut, but I've recently met a new mom at church and her hair is cut in a similar fashion. We have a playdate tentatively set for Saturday and I don't want her to think I've gone all "Single White Female" on her.
I've had my hair cut short before (Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby short, in fact) and I really liked it. But I was thinner then. And going short again makes me a little nervous. But I kind of think I need something to wake me up. Shake me up, if that makes any sense. I've gotten into such a rut. Maybe a new haircut will make me get off my ass and go to the gym. Maybe it will revitalize me. What do you guys think? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. Which one looks like the new me?
