2nd Haircut

B E F O R E


A F T E R


The haircut above is actually the 2nd attempt.
1st attempt would have burned the film if I had taken a photograph.
Just fresh out of the salon. So I can't say "I like it" or "hate it - need to go out and buy a box of bobby pins". (That will be tomorrow.)
Although...
Hmmm, how can I explain this. I do have sort of a backwards mullet. Business on the back, party on the front.
According to John, from the back, I look like a boy wearing a bob cut wig that is too small.

B U T,
(since the 1st attempt)
I am appreciating the shorter shower time, less hair on the floor and not almost scalping myself by leaning my elbow on my hair when getting off the bed.

Update: Today (4/24), I think I like it.

wow! What a change. I had a haircut like that once and I loved it. I recently had 7" cut off but them regretted it. I feel like a 12y year old when I have short hair. from what i can tell, it looks rockin on you, sista!

Last time I had so short hair was over 14 years ago (and that was becuase my hairdresser burned it :/) and these days I hate it every time I need to cut of just a tiny Inch...

Fantastic pictures and I like it a lot! I do agree: you look great with both! :)
Ohh, and somehow my eyes got drawn to the bubblewrap too - how do you reach it so high - LOL! :)

oh you guys are TOO kind!

artmind: re: bubblewrap. the tip of it is always within reach, so I roll it out as I need it. there have been instances where the entire roll fell on my head. ah, the life of a short one.

wait, you got your haircut again after I saw you tuesday? I did not realize it was so long before. Yeah, I think you were expecting my haircut to be shorter, but she did take off 4 inches and about a pound of hair. I'm liking it better these days without blowdrying it straight (which is what I had done tues). Hair!! I don't think I will ever find the best haircut!

i had to fix that haircut you saw. so made an appoint. the day after i met you. i thought you were going to have a bob! but your hair looked great! but if you still want to go bob, i recommend. i'm loving the short hair; really practical.
