The tide is high but I'm moving on
After I've been sick for a long stretch of time, I go and get my hair done. Even if I'm still feeling lousy -- that way I don't look the part, too. So today I finally went back to the girl that gave me this cut / highlights. I haven't actually had my hair cut or trimmed since she didn't show up for our appt. a few days before Todd's birthday in August (and I got stuck with "the disaster" instead). But today I decided it was time to give the stylist I liked another chance -- and I'm so glad I did. She gave me one of the very few hairstyles that I've ever had where people would stop me and ask me where I got it cut when we went out.

Now killing two birds with one stone -- here are photos I took for "Picture Yourself", showing off my new cut and style (photo 1, photo 2, photo 3, photo 4, photo 5). Here's one Todd took of the back as well.

And in other news...it appears others have noticed I quietly pruned my blog-reads list this weekend. Please don't take it personally. There's no need to write and see if you did something wrong or if I'm angry with you. It's just impossible for any human to read over 200 blogs a week. Especially one coming off the flu with a handful of very antsy clients. So I cut my blogrolls back a bit as a result. If you don't comment often, or update often (for me to catch it via Blogrolling and weblogs.com), then chances are I won't have the mental prompt to stop by. That doesn't mean I'll never read you again. It just means my free time is becoming more and more scarce by the day... Hope that helps clear things up. Group hug!

And I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Can you believe we're already diving headfirst into 2003? Yipes!

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

it looks nice. if i wasn't so afraid of having short hair and getting a bad cut, i might do that one. its cute.

ooohhh..I love the flip, 'specially from the back shot. The way it's cut looks like it adds some volume.

I just hate it when they cut it and style it and it looks so cool...and then I go home and can NEVER make it look like it did.

you look mah-velous!

I love it! Very, very cute on you.

Gorgeous! Now you just need the color with the red and blonde and WOW!

Great pictures! Great haircut.

Love it, love it, love it!!! Super cute. I'd stop you on the street and ask where you'd got it done =) Picture 3 is my favorite.

Lookin' good!

No offense taken because I don't think I was ever on there anyway ... *sniff*

¤ ¤ credit: tj | 01.05.03 at 08:27 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

your hair looks great! seriously! i need a haircut but i can't find anyone i trust to cut my hair. i like stylists that i can tell to "just do something that looks good". most places around here are all "tell me what you want or i'm not cutting it". *sigh*

¤ ¤ credit: theresa | 01.05.03 at 08:28 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

What a terrific cut! I really like the way it looks in the back. I need to find a stylist here that I trust.

¤ ¤ credit: Brandy | 01.05.03 at 08:33 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

I'm not fond of flippy hair as a rule - but that is one kick-ass haircut, suits you *perfectly*.

¤ ¤ credit: Bill | 01.05.03 at 08:47 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Love the hair! Makes me want to go get mine done, but I'm scared b/c I don't have a stylist in Dallas. And with my curly hair, well...I've walked out with some not-so-cute looks before so its a bit scary for me to try someone new.

¤ ¤ credit: Camille | 01.05.03 at 08:54 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

That's cute and kinda how I have my hair cut. It's very easy to manage.

¤ ¤ credit: trish | 01.05.03 at 09:03 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

First, I think I can establish that I have never kissed your @ss. Right? OK. As long as we establish that. :)

These are the pictures of the new haircut? I hope so. R, you look great! Seriously! Man.... I hope you're feeling A LOT better because I suspect Todd is going to be on the prowl. Great "do"! Come to Texas, baby!

¤ ¤ credit: Kevin | 01.05.03 at 09:17 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Awwwww, you guys! ;-) And yep, those pics are the "after"! Never, ever using another stylist again...

¤ ¤ credit: robyn | 01.05.03 at 09:29 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

very nice :) I remember just beginning to read you when you got that other one...

¤ ¤ credit: DianeG | 01.05.03 at 09:40 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

*rowr* very sexy. The haircuts looks absolutely gorgeous on you Robyn!

¤ ¤ credit: munin | 01.05.03 at 09:49 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Damn. Nice.

I so need to go get a good haircut. That would probably seriously help me kick the hell out of this holidy blah nonsense.

Robyn, your haircut's inspiring! Heh. ;P

¤ ¤ credit: VASpider | 01.05.03 at 09:56 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Very nice 'do, Robyn. I just got about six inches chopped off of my hair about two and a half weeks ago. I feel so free now. The wonders a good haircut can do for you...

¤ ¤ credit: Kathy | 01.05.03 at 10:39 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Oh my god, you look hot. Your hair grew a lot since Thanksgiving it seems.

I love it, I love it, IIIIIIII love it!

very cute. kind of that paige davis thing going on...erm, if you like her...if you don't then um... you don't look anything like her! ha. :)

¤ ¤ credit: tenika | 01.06.03 at 12:08 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

cute! very cute!

¤ ¤ credit: ursula | 01.06.03 at 12:29 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

I like it! The blond is a great shade, and the cut is so cute! Now will you come with me and make someone give me a cute cut? ;)

¤ ¤ credit: kristine | 01.06.03 at 12:35 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

Looks good, I like the color!

¤ ¤ credit: Sean | 01.06.03 at 02:05 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

It's finally the color God gave me again! Well the top 4" from the roots anyway... ;-)

¤ ¤ credit: robyn | 01.06.03 at 02:06 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

Tenika, did you know Paige's married name is Paige Page? (I watch TOO MUCH TLC!) She was on A Wedding Story.

¤ ¤ credit: Tracy | 01.06.03 at 02:18 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

Personally, I love the sassy lipsmacking one! That's my favorite! They should be up on PictureYourself by tomorrow night, if not sooner!

Hey ... wait ... where did my cookie go? That's just weird... Hm. I just hate having to fill in my name! LOL

¤ ¤ credit: Christine | 01.06.03 at 03:09 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

Wow Robyn!! What an awesome new haircut!! I wish we had stylists that good in Orlando!

¤ ¤ credit: Maria | 01.06.03 at 07:35 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

Looks great! That reminds me that I am in serious need of a cut! :-)

Christine...my cookie disappeared, too, but it's working now.

Me likey! I've kinda got a 2 layer longer version of that myself, and I hope you're better at handling a round brush than I am, cause I can never get the back to look decent. In fact, I don't normally try anymore. That's what my sister's for.

¤ ¤ credit: Veshka | 01.06.03 at 04:12 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

I love the new do, especially the back. But the big question is, can you get it to look like that without the hairdressers help!!

¤ ¤ credit: Jessica Parker | 01.06.03 at 05:02 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Pretty close. I've had a million variations of this style over the years, I'm pretty good with a round brush, and my hair's getting just enough natural curl to it as I get older to help me along. It probably won't have as much volume as she gave me (since I don't have 3 hands), but it should look somewhat similar. *crossing fingers*

¤ ¤ credit: robyn | 01.06.03 at 05:07 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Great cut! I love Pic 3!!

¤ ¤ credit: Shelby | 01.06.03 at 05:32 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

ooh you soooooooo sexy girl *mwah*

¤ ¤ credit: gnome-girl | 01.06.03 at 06:55 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

very cute! if my hair wasn't so long or so thick, i'd get something like that. looks easy to manage! :)

¤ ¤ credit: Kathy | 01.06.03 at 08:57 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Looks great. Suits you very well. ;) I had my hair short like that for a while but took too much time to "do" so I'm growing it out. It's more boring long but easier to wash and go... ;)

¤ ¤ credit: Linh | 01.06.03 at 09:07 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

cuuuuuuuute flip! it's perfect on you.

i can't believe how fast your hair grows.

¤ ¤ credit: tanya | 01.06.03 at 10:46 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Great pictures and totally cute haircut! I have not let a hairstylist cut my hair since 1987 I kidd you not. Perhaps that is why my hair looks so horrid most of the time? LOL

I wish my hair would go straight like yours. I don't have the time to spend on it to make it behave that way. How much time does a style like that take to do by the way? I am so behind on things like this, since I tend to be sort of a tomboy...

You look very pretty, as always :) I am glad you are kind of feeling better. I hope you don't work too hard! Take it easy.

Definately 'shag me' hair!

A message for Tenika and Tracy - Referring to Paige Davis....
Actually, her name is Mindy Paige Davis, so her proper name would be Mindy Page, but itís quite a coincidence all the same.
Donít believe me? Check it out.
