Well, they're gone!

My curls! Just like baby curls, they are gone! Lying on the cutting room floor! Please stop me!

So, this is what I looked like last night (um, Tuesday).

See, how long it got in the back!

This is what I looked like when I left the salon Wednesday afternoon.

Well, maybe not so "deer in the headlights" (except when he told me the price)! This is the back.

Then of course, I have to wash it when I come home, to get rid of the stinky shampoo they use. Letting it dry by itself, this is what it looks like.

Damn, this means I have to start using a hair dryer again - at least some of the time. I really like the colour & the highlights, but it is going to be in my eyes in a week again. It took three & 1/2 hours to do this and I was in those horrible sinks three times! Brian (my hairstylist) was convinced that my hair had been permed because it was straight on the top. Nope, that is just my hair. Boy is he going to be surprised when I go in with curls again in a month.

It was thundering and crashing, pouring rain and hailing as we were finishing and he asked where I was parked (ha), so I told him I was riding the bus. He asked where to and then very kindly gave me a ride home.

Have a good Thursday everyone!

you are so gutsy and it looks amazing!

now. where's the gringringrin?


Leah J. Utas said...

Love the colour. The curls are yours for life. You can subdue them for a time, but methinks they'll always win.

Fortune Cookies said...

I LOVE the new do! and the color too! Don't you just love getting a whole new look? I always grow mine out really long, then chop it all off really short, just for the shock factor.

Wow, sis, it looks great! Methinks I need a new stylist. Oh, wait, I tried that last time and it was worse than ever! *Sob*, I miss big bro!!

the Bag Lady said...

And how great of that guy to give you a ride home!

gary rith said...

dang, the haircut looks GOOD! and what a nice dude, giving you a lift home!!!!

Reb said...

Mizfit, I save the grins for a day or two, until I see if I can repeat the experience! Thanks, after being bald though, it isn't so much gutsy!

Leah, thanks, I think you are right.

FC, thanks! I was doing that looking for a new stylist, giving it six months or more in between cuts, then going really short.

Sis, thanks. I miss him too, he wouldn't have taken 3.5 hours to do this. Yes, he is very nice.

Gary, thanks, yes, he is a really nice guy.

Missicat said...

I like it! Lots! The color looks great on you. I always wish my hairdresser could come over and fix my hair every a.m....

Jay said...

The new "do" looks fantastic! And I agree that that color is great on you!

Reb said...

Missicat, thanks! The only problem with having the hairdresser come every morning, would be that I would have to be nice too damned early!

Thanks Jay! I think it will hide the grey better ;)

Janet said...

I love the color and oh, what nice curls!!!

Reb said...

Thanks Janet!

Dianne said...

remember when I said I wasn't sure about the blonde, many posts ago?

I was soooo wrong. that color is perfect for you, warm and pefrect for your skin tone.

and I love your curls! they look soft

I have big heavy waves that flip up when it's humid - makes me look like the Flying Nun

love you new profile pic too

so many cool changes :)

Reb said...

Thanks Dianne. Yes, it was hard to tell though from those photos. Glad you like it.

Crabby McSlacker said...

Love the hairstyle, and it's a great color on you.

I'm with MizFit though, I want to see your smile too!

Real Live Lesbian said...

Cute style!!!! He did a great job with the color, too!

Tink said...

Ah! It's ADOREABLE. I really love that color on you.

Tink said...

Yeah, I totally can't spell.


Aunt Jackie said...

I take notions with my hair... But I think it looks lovely! I like the way the back looks too. Summertime, it's hot. It grows fast. You'll get the curls back.

Just enjoy and live moment to moment :)

Reb said...

Crabby, thanks, I am really liking it.

Hello RLL. Thanks, I'm very happy with it.

Tink, thanks. Me too, thank TPTB for the little red underline!

AJ, thanks. In the before(s), that is the longest I have had my hair in forever - not to mention curliest.

Terrie Farley Moran said...


I know I'm late but I've been up to my neck in stuff.

Just had to stop by to say: YOU LOOK FABULOUS!

The color is superb AND I love the cut. With out a blow out it looks great--kicky and casual. With the blow out it is very sophisticated.

Nice job, Brian!!


Reb said...

Terrie, thanks so much! I have mostly let it dry by itself, but I can see that I will have to practice drying with a blow dryer now. It's only been probably 10 years or so!
