Bad Haircut!

We've all had them.  As a former hairstylist I'm ashamed to admit that I had not had a haircut in.... two and a half YEARS!  Now it is no coincidence that my twins just turned two, but still, a bit ridiculous.  To add to the issue, I am VERY picky about who I let touch my hair.  I'm a former hairstylist with blond hair that will show every cut the stylist makes if done wrong.  And the only person I currently trust is EXPENSIVE (at least in my book).  I learned the hard way this month that she is also worth EVERY penny (and paying someone else, then paying her to fix it, makes the haircut just all that much more costly).

So it was a couple of days before Christmas and I passed a salon I used to work at and noticed that one of the women I worked with had returned to her job there.  I was ecstatic.  I ran right in and luck had it that she could get me in right away.  Long story short I left deflated, and pretending I was happy.  When I got home I attempted to blend the layers a bit myself (remember, I know what I'm doing and you should not try to fix haircuts yourself! okay, you probably shouldn't do it even if you know what your doing, the angles are all different) luckily I didn't mess anything up further and made the cut tolerable through the holiday functions.

When my mother in law gave me some cash as a gift I knew instantly what mine would be for.... I'm getting my hair FIXED!  Luckily I didn't have the first girl cut much off so I still have a lot to work with.  This time I thought I should take a look through some pics and get an idea what I'm looking for before I go in.  Photos are always helpful to your stylist.  I found a pic of Carrie Underwood that I fell in love with...
 Keep in mind, I wear a lot of pony tails right now with young kids.  So I looked further to see what this cut looked like when down...
I didn't instantly love it, but the more I looked at it the more it made sense for me.  I have a ton of hair and this cut would really thin it out which would be great! A lot of the styles I wear would work really well with all those layers.  So I opened my photo editor, erased her face, cropped out her fab body (because it doesn't come with the haircut) removed the color (to make it blend a bit better) and plugged in my own face.  Keep in mind this was done in seconds just "to see".
I have an appointment on Friday.  What do you think?

  1. I think it's fabulous that you have so much hair to work with - - that cut is so fun!

    Sorry about your hair trauma - - I have thin, curly hair and just about every cut I get is deflating. :(

  3. My sister is a stylist and I trust NOBODY but her ;P I also have a lot of hair and mine was about this length right before christmas. It's been this length for about 5 years. I have had a few layers put in here and there but it wasn't doing it for me. So I just chopped it to the shoulder and put in TONS of layers and bangs just like this pic. I LOVE it and can still wear a pony.

  6. Oh, a good hairdresser is worth his or her weight in gold! I too have a TON of hair (really, like enough for 3 people) and it's long and heavy. There are days when I can do nothing with it. My cut is similar to the one you posted, only not quite as layered. I may have to rethink my cut though and have my super-fab (and crazy expensive) stylist try this on me. :)
    I hope you post some after photos!

  7. Looks cute! That's what my hair used to look like, until I cut off six inches in a fit of insanity. I really wish I had tried the picture thing first.

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how
