This is the only photo of the do I got after it was styled and it was took on my cell phone in Staples. Not the best move, because the style got destroyed during the rest of the day by doing yard work and laying out in the sun. The back was all nice and brushed under, but once it got wet it stuck out like a stiff leg.
My nightmare did not come true and John was able to cut off the hair, although my hair dresser, Marijke, started the cut. It was totally weird to know that he was cutting off all my hair!
Here I am supposed to look scared even though I look excited. I obviously do not have a wide range of facial expressions.
It's off! Doesn't it look puny? Kind of disappointing that it looks like a little dog tail.
The sensation of the cut reminded me of Sixteen Candles and what Caroline Mulford must have felt when her best friend cut off the back of her hair.
The morning after:
I did a practice round of fixing my hair this afternoon, so come Monday morning I wouldn't be stressing out about it. Even though there is a lot less hair, it will take a few times before I get it down fast. The hair in the back is SO short that it was really hard to get to lay flat. That is why it looks a little curvy. Here is a more final after shot:
I knew I wouldn't be looking that good before my actual hair cut, so I had to do a few photo shoots during the week.
Of course I had to capture my hair straight AND curly. I'm hoping that if I do try to wear my hair curly, that it won't look quite like an Afro due to the a-line cut of the style. Who knows though. I might have do to a practice run of that on a weekend.
I totally think I've maxed out the number of photos you are supposed to post of yourself on your blog. E-gads!
Quick survey...how much are you supposed to tip your hair dresser? I've always tipped 15% like at restaurants. Please leave comment and let me know!
