Without further ado, the winner, Short and Sassy:
And I grainily documented the whole thing for your viewing pleasure! (No, I'm not mad in these pictures. Just trying to figure out how to take a picture of myself in the mirror.)
DURING (I cut between the two rubber bands. I read an article in Glamor 20+ years ago that said doing this was an easy way to give yourself long, easy layers.
Last week, after both kids were back in school, I finally made it into the salon to get my official new hair cut. The stylist didn't believe me when I told her I wanted it short, so we ended up re-cutting the whole thing twice. Much blow drying and flat ironing later, it looked really cute! Ironically, it still wasn't short enough. I want it OFF my neck. My stylist said to come back after I had lived with it for a while and we would tweak it to get it just right.
Then I washed it. I had to see what it would look like if I didn't take time to fix it. Oh, the humanity! It shrunk (shrank? shrinked?) right up into a puffy round grandma hair do. All I needed to fit in with the biddies in my water aerobics class was a blue rinse. My look went from mid-30's to mid-50's. Swell.
