I got a wild hair up my big butt to revitalize my blonde and go short(er). Living the posh SAHM life, I am either at the gym or in the pool a large majority of the time, and I am so tired of wearing my hair in this big nasty, wet bun/pony all the time. Seriously, my hair was rarely dry, because it was always up in a pony/knot thing. Kinda gross. The FL heat didn't help the situation either; add a little sweat into the equation, and you've got for real gross.
Now, living the posh SAHM life also means we have very little extra cash, so I decided I could cut and color my own hair. The results?
Damn, I am good! I could be a stylist! In fact, to be honest, I'm happier with my highlights than I've been the past few times I went to the salon. Joey, how's my blonde for ya? :)
I also wanted to mention, several people have commented on how I've gotten blonder as I've lost weight. The truth is, I've always been very blonde. When DH lost his job in August, I decided I could no longer afford highlights, so I colored my hair dark for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE. It just so happened to then coincide with my surgery - me having dark hair - and me going blonde again just so happened to coincide with my weight loss. The two really had nothing to do with one another!
Check my new 'do out (and please forgive the lack of makeup):
I gotta toot my own horn for a minute - I think my face is looking FABULOUS! I have a chin. And kinda cheek bones. And my eyes don't disappear when I smile. Holy crap, I don't look like a fatty anymore. For real!
