Shave and a Haircut

Well no new shaves, just a new haircut. So in February I got a drastic hair cut. Well maybe not terribly drastic, but for me it was. I have long hair and I was going to chop it off to medium length for a few reasons. 1) To take of what is left of the perm I got a year and half ago off and 2) To have a little change. But when I went to the salon the stylist convinced piratically begged me not to cut it off. She said that because I am so tall long hair works and short hair would make me look like a boy. Plus she said my hair is already beautiful and healthy. My color is very natural and lovely (it has natural streaks, way cool, my secret is just going out in the sun). She is a sweet Asian lady. She showed me a picture of what she wanted to do. It looked safe so I agreed. As she cut she added an Asian style twist to it. When she was done I wasn't sure that I liked it because the layers are really drastic and I like to blend my layers. But after a few days of playing with it and modeling in front of the mirror I decided that I like it. It frames my face on the front but is lusciously long in the back.

I know that it has been months since then, but I wanted to post some pictures. I have been waiting until I have had a good hair day and time to take pictures. I still have some perm left so most days I just let my hair do what it wants. Other days I actually take time to doll myself up. See below and enjoy. Feel free to serenade the blog with your ooooss and ahhhss or just some laughs.

This is my hair before the cut, long with some perm left.

Viola! Here it is styled with a straightener after the cut.

Font view. See how it frames my face. From here you might think,
"OH NO! Where did her hair go?"

Don't worry. Its here in the back!

Here I am with a flip curled style

I think my signature or strong part of my face is my side because I am always turning to the side for pictures. If I were to be on Next Top Model then I would have to show more variety or get kicked off.

Here it is slightly curled
Here it is very curled
I think it looks better when I actually style it as opposed to just wash and wear, but most days I would rather sleep inn for those extra 20 minutes. Change is good, new hair new me. Or same me but with bouncier hair. :)


  1. I absolutely LOVE the flipped and curled looks. The layers in my hair always get lost in all the antural curl, but when I style it like either of those pictures, it really turns out cute...for a few hours...then it goes limp. You're definitely looking good these days! Go you and your new hair!!
