My Hair Makeover

The other day I got my hair cut and highlighted.  I had not gotten my hair cut in over a year because it is very curly and I was trying to let it grow.  I discovered 2 things.  1) I don't have time to style my long ass hair everyday and 2) 9 times out of 10, my longer, curly, unruly hair ended up in a ponytail. 

So why the long hair?  There is no reason why.  I mean, I know that I can't have super short hair.  If I did, I would most definitely look like little orphan Annie.  But the long mess that I had going on was completely unnecessary.  This led me to getting a considerable amount of length cut off of my hair.  (The gift certificate that I received from my husband and kids for Mother's Day helped as well.  I think he was getting sick of my bitching and moaning about my hair too.)

The morning of my appointment I started to think about all the before and after photos you see of people who get makeovers in magazines.  Or the before and after makeover reveals that they have on talk shows.  Listen, if anyone wants to turn me in to What Not to Wear...or any morning talk show program and claim that I am a hot mess and in need of a makeover, well....PLEASE, go right ahead!!! I would LOVE that.  A makeover would be fabulous, along with new clothes, shoes, and accessories.  So get on that...okay?  I promise I won't be offended.

But...until that happens, for your viewing pleasure, here is my hair makeover from this weekend.

Here I am the morning of my hair appointment.  This looks about right.  As far as I am concerned, they MUST tell people to look completely miserable in the before picture.  That can be the only explanation.  And they also must tell people to wear NO makeup and wear the worst possible outfit.  Although this is not a full body shot, I can assure you that my outfit was very unflattering.

Here is me after my hair appointment.  It's still not the best picture but, hey, you get the idea.  My hair is considerably shorter...and lighter.  It is a little too light for me when I see it outside, but I will get used to it.  (And in this picture, my roots look very dark.  I am hoping it is just the lighting and doesn't look this way in person.)

So what do you think?  You like?  If not, remember, I will be a willing participant in any type of mom makeover.

  1. I LOVE the before pic - ha ha! Looking good in the after pic too!

  2. It looks great, says one curly girl to another! Ellen P.S.- You nailed the before picture. Too funny.

  3. Oh my god, the before picture is HILARIOUS!! You look bee-utiful in the after, LoVE IT! ~Frualistablog xoxo

  4. Looks great! And I totally agree with the before and after thing. I think they even photoshop these people to look extra pasty and unattractive in the before picture. Anyway, nice hair.

  5. It looks great - but partly because you don't have the mean, zombie-eyed stare of your first "before" pic!!! LOL...That look could kill somebody! The happy "after" pic is way more approachable!!! Smile - it makes everyone wonder what you're up to!

  6. Lol at the ‘before’ picture! You really took the look-miserable-before-photo seriously. The after-makeover looks great though. Still want to be a participant of a great make-over show? Why don’t you just give yourself one? You know, like having your hair straight and dyed to get a completely different look. Beulah May @ Bernard’s Salon And Spa

  7. Mommy makeover is what I desperately need! I just had my 3rd kid and it's done a number on my body. Don't get me wrong. I love my children, but I also love my body. Has anyone here had a mommy makeover done in Dallas or DFW area? I am search for a board certified plastic surgeon who comes highly recommended.
