new haircut


So, this photo is blurry, but it is the one that best represents my new haircut. (Mom left Jessie & I some money to get our hair done -- Jessie knows a girl that comes to her house.)

I wanted to get that inverse bob that is so popular right now, but Natalie thought it wouldn't work for my hair. To quote, "your hair would look like a mushroom". OK, then. I love that style, but I guess I don't want a mushroom head.

I really like how it turned out anyway, but I have three concerns:

1. It will most likely never look this good again (when I style it).
2. When I let it go curly, as I did today, it is not cute.
3. I feel like my face (all of me, really) looks larger when I have shorter hair. I have no idea whether or not that is actually true, but that is my fear and I can't seem to get any objectivity about it.

Anyway... I do feel like I have a style now, and that is rare for me. Thanks, Mom.

(Jessie declined to participate in any hair documentation.)

1. REALLY cute hair. I can't imagine having a real style.
2. I think Jessie HAS to participate... your viewers need to see.
3. I am not sure I believe that short hair makes your face look bigger. Unfortunately for me... big is big. I think it depends on the style. You look great.
4. I would like to see it curly. Committing to everyday straightening might make me lose it.

as a "reverse bob" girl who has never had to wrangle curly hair, i think this is a very cute style on you, AND i love that you have options.

patsy said...

Wow - I love it!!
I am so jealous of your curls though....

Michelle I love it and think it's very cute on you. I love walking out after getting my haircut and feeling cute, but unfortunately it doesn't happen very often. So hats off to you. I think it's great you were able to do it with your mom and sister. You must be having such a good time.

So.cute.really.

Just so dang cute. I love it.

And I couldn't disagree more with #3.

Jill said...

I think your hair looks great! You took a lot of length off didn't you? Your head must feel 10 pounds lighter.

What's up with Jessie not participating in the documentation?

I
Love
Your
Hair!
It is so dang cute on YOU! You are brave. I would love to cut all my hair off again...but I don't.
Hope you are having a great time with your sister and darling girls!

cute hair and I can not imagine that it looks bad curly because your curls are gorgeous...what a fun idea by your mom for a girly treat.

TX Girl said...

I love it.

Lucy said...

Very, very chic. I admit to laughing about your stylists comment, though. I wouldn't want a mushroom head either.

marc said...

You look very stylin'. And thanks to the blog I get to see it before you're even home.

Natasha said...

I like the sassy new 'do.

Quelly said...

I LOVE it! And I completely disagree about short hair making your face look larger. That cut really looks nice on you.

rmt said...

So cute! I love it and I think that it is very flattering.
Jessie really needs to participate! I want to see her new look as well!

Denise said...

You look fantastic! I love that feeling of New 'do/New Me. I had that feeling last year when your mom took me to her haircutter in PA when I was there helping with Christmas set-ups. If I were truly wealthy I would pay to have my stylist (Jacquelyn) do my hair every day--what a luxury!

wende said...

very cute. very classy. very YOU! i love it! and by the way, these are the exact SAME three concerns i have about my hair every time i get it done! i think it must be a common woman thing!

crystal said...

You're a babe! I see you've got the Diva Eyes again. I love the new 'do.

Liz said...

I LOVE it! My hair is sort of that style, although it is in need of a cut right now. I think it is a really cute cut. But I agree, if you don't have time to style it, it never looks very good...at least mine doesn't.

Oh. Oh. So very cute. One that starts out this cute can't be bad!

Robyn said...

Your hair looks great! I love it.

I am very familiar with the mushroom head- it is not my friend.

Claudissima said...

Oh michelle oH LA LA ....It looks amazing. I know exactly what you mean, that it might not come along until you style it again! I have the hardest thing when I have a styled short hair, i usually have to put in the time to do something, or it just looks below average, that is what i was telling Jill, that hers, looks soo nice, always! Although, I am pushing for her to get some long layers, I think they would add a lot to her...but she is hesistantly resisting me....I have a few clips going her way! But I think you look adorable! oH, i have a little thing comming your way too!, I think....if i get my act together.!

Hannah said...

Wow that is cute on you! I love feeling like I have a style instead of just hair on my head. I hope you have figured out how to make it work for you by now. I can never get my hair to look how it did after leaving a salon.

You know when you catch up on blogging and you read reverse-chronologically. Funny to read Eva's opinion and then scroll down to see your adorable new haircut! Very tempting to try something daring myself.
