LONG OVER DUE!!


After almost 2 years of living in Portland I finally found someone that I trust to highlight my hair! Up until now I have been getting my hair done every time I go home to Utah. Before yesterday it had been over 3 months since my last cut and color!! And my hair was really really long even 3 months ago!! Since I work out in the morning and don't have too much time to get ready I find myself resorting to a pony tail pretty much everyday. (lucky me, Dave's likes it the best in a pony) Anyway, I haven't worn my hair down and straight for two.. maybe three months. I think I tried to wear it down and straight a month or two ago and Dave said..."honey not to be rude, but I think you need a hair cut, you're hair is looking like the girl from the ring!" ha ha ha that was funny! That comment was made about a month and 1/2 ago..so it has only gotten longer! When its down and I curl it, it looks fine since the curls shrink it quite a bit, but...as you can see from the before picture below, my hair was way to long long long OVER DUE and in desperate need of a hair cut!! It was almost embarrassing to take it out of my pony tail and have the girl cut it..and I am also a little embarrassed to even post this picture because it looks so gross....I actually couldn't even where my hair in a pony tail without it being in curls because it was too long. It looked like a horses tail... ewww!! I have just been so busy lately with the job search and then starting with a new job that I put my hair needs on the back burner. If and IF I ever wore it down it was in curls, but lets be honest, most days it just ends up in a pony tail. As a result of my laziness...this is what it looked like right before I got it cut...(disclaimer, it looks extra gross in this picture not just long gross but gross because it wasn't flat ironed, it was really frizzy because I had just taken it out of a bun after I got done exercising so it was kinky and gross...but still, how could I have let it go for that long?? So here is a before and after pic...she took off about 3 1/2 inches off... maybe a little more. It made a HUGE difference! Take a look...

Yes, maybe you are prego! I would love that! Cache agrees that the hair cut makes a big difference and looks much better! I thought that was so funny that he commented on that as he was looking at the post over my shoulder. It looks gorgeous either way. You ALWAYS look perfect!

I LOVE the new highlights. She did a great job. You are so lucky that you can go dark or blonde and look darling either way. I hate finding someone good to do my hair so when you find someone you have to snag them up and never change.
