It cuts you up
I haven't had my hair cut since January. To be honest, I just haven't felt like caring about my hair for months -- and anyone who knows me knows that's quite unusual for me. It's just been that kind of year... But I finally got fed up with how long it was. How blah it was. And how "not me" it was.

That's when I found out I'm truly cursed. When we moved up to the 'burbs a couple of years ago, I quit going to the hairdresser I'd used for about 4½ years because she was just too far away. It seemed a pain to waste half of our weekend schlepping to the salon and back. So by some fluke I found a girl here in suburbia that I actually loved, first-try. When I called to make the appointment last week they told me she'd been promoted to manage her own salon. The location? Exactly two blocks from my old stylist. Two blocks even further from us. Figures. But after the great hair disaster of '02 when I was forced to use someone else last-minute, there was no way I was up to trying to find someone new again. So schelp we did... It wasn't that hard to make the drive considering, with tip, I pay this girl about $70 less than my old stylist in the same location before tip.

And of course, it was worth it. I feel about 20 lbs. lighter and look like "me" again. Wanna see?

(Dig that new tee, don't ya'?) When my stylist's boyfriend gets back from Iraq and they get married, I think I'm going to need weeks of therapy. It's harder to find a decent stylist than it is to buy a house, I'm starting to believe...and that was no cakewalk.

We won't be around tonight. Robbie is flying in for another overnighter, and we're going into Tampa to see 'im in a couple of hours. Y'all have fun now, ya'hear!

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

Nice rack..err. Shirt, thats what I meant. :)

My wife just got her hair cut. I protested against it, but it was no use. It ended up looking pretty darn good. So I say go for it Yvonne.

Wow, holy short batman. I'm surprised that you went that short after last years hair disaster. I like it though, especially the way the back came out.

I haven't had my hair cut or colored since last August. In fact, I got it colored and cut right before Todd's party. I finally went to get it all done yesterday. I needed a new stylist, and also needed the money to do it. Thankfully, I got a good recommendation from my friend at work, and the girl is quicker, cheaper and better than my last stylist. Not to mention closer to my house/office. That's about the only lucky thing that's happened to me this whole year.

Love the new haircut Robyn, I think you look great with short hair. I'm sure a few others agree with me on that. :)

You look fabulous, dahrling, simply fabulous! :)

I took the plunge and cut off like 13" of hair back in January for Locks of Love and because I was just sick of long, blah hair. I don't regret it *one bit*! People thought I was straight out of "A Makeover Story". :)

Though, I have to admit that I haven't cut it since and Lady Clairol has been my best friend. Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that I've had my own hair disasters in the past and, like you, can't trust just anyone to hack away at these tresses. I drive an hour to get to my stylist now. *sigh* Wish she'd move closer already!

p.s. the racks pretty nice, too... ;)

Looks sassy...

By the way, the latest out of Denver is that Q is turning heads. If Portis holds out, coach Shanny thinks he could plug right in. Better hands too.

The middle photo reminds me of the Brady mom's hairstyle for some odd reason or another.
