The New Me


Okay - so I don't look that different. Except for the fact that the first photo was done by my friend Muncy, the pro, and it has been touched up/air brushed whatever you want to call it. And the second one was taken by McD.



As you can tell, my hair is shorter. The main difference is that I am back to my natural color. It is amazing how close they can actually get to your natural color. I love highlights. On. Other. People. To me - they just wash me out. So far, I have had many compliments on going back to my dark hair. I love it! I am so glad I did it.

As for the length, I just wanted to do something different. It will grow out again. No worries here. This is nothing compared to my near flat-top. Hmmm, yet another story. :)

Very nice.
I always wonder had I been beautiful if I would have turned out to be such a nice person.

You seem to have made the trip so far without it spoiling you.

So, when did you cut the hair? It really looks cute! I did that a while back and didn't tell Birddog. . . just left my hair in a baggie on the bathroom counter. . .LOL . . . he was freaking out! ! !
The haircut is really cute! ! ! Wish I could do different stuff with mine without looking like a blimp or a dork!

Hey everybody. Don't have much time so I can't address each of you. Thanks for all the compliments.

Cut and colored my hair on Monday, then ran to the mall with a friend and got a pedicure. I might even post my toes later. Naw! Eww! I am not a "feet" person!

Thanks again!

I can't tell the difference (I can, but as a male I'm obliged to give that answer). You're one of those lucky people who look good either way, but I think your writing shows your true beauty.

I will say one thing about the original picture (I'm familiar with it from when it was your avatar) - It always seemed to make me feel seasick for some reason.

Love the new 'do! Doesn't it feel great to change your hair? I had a jones to cut mine the other day, but then remembered that I'm in a wedding in a few weeks, and so I need to keep it longer until after then. But after the wedding? All bets are off.

I'm partial to the New You 'Do. Give my regards to your colorist.

I had issues with my highlights recently too. Seems as though I was made a blonde at my last appointment. Nothing wrong with blonde, it's just not what I wanted.

I like your curtains!

WT - sorry to make you seasick. I know that feeling and it isn't fun! :)

Thanks everyone. I love it! It took a little getting used to going back to my dark hair, but I love it!

Marnie - those are not my curtains. We paid a lot of money to stay in the room with those curtains. But it was worth every penny. Those are in our room at the Broadmoor.

Mrs. Ca - can't wait to see your new do. I know - after the wedding. But you have got to post a pic.

Cheeky! Are ya going to post your photos? Isn't having a pro photographer as a friend the best! We have so much fun! I am always her guinea pig! And I love it!

WOW! We have the same cut AND color (although I'm now requiring a little extra maintenance to ward of the grey). I like the shorter cut on you, but you really look great either way.
