Time for a change...

Today, I broke down and got my hair cut by a professional. I was honestly a nervous wreck about doing it. I'm not sure why...maybe its because I was worried about getting a bad cut. There's nothing worse than paying someone who did a whack job on your hair, but I was in luck. The fella who did my hair was amazing! He cracked a few jokes about how trimming my own bangs is like a sin and that dying my own hair is right up there, probably because my roots were horrendous. Eek.
I was also nervous because I can't stand going to a hair dresser and them not talking to me or trying to make it more pleasant. This guy was a pro and we actually had a lot in common. We both were in the music scene back in the day and enjoyed going to shows. So we talked about the good ol' days and he made process go by quickly and it was painless. haha well most hair cuts are.  I really think that I found my new hair dresser. Yay! I have never actually had one, but I picked up his card and told him that I'll come back to him before I pick up another pair of scissors and go at my hair. I don't want to go to hair do hell. haha.

Yes, I am rambling...I will stop and show you the new do.

Here's the do before I colored it again. 

And here it is after I added  more red to it.
For some reason it didn't style as easily as it did for him. 
Why is that?


What's new with you?
Any big plans for the weekend?

you look amazzing girl! in that first pic it even looks like you dyed your hair a punky light pink!

i've slowly learned over the years that the value of a good hairdresser cannot be quantified...

SO behind on blog reading, but I LOVE it! So pretty. And it is never ever as easy as it is for them. So I came to the conclusion that I should just cut it. Because then? I'll never have anything to try to top. ;]
