The unveiling of the hair

On Saturday morning I got my hair cut and colored. A friend of mine is going to a cosmotology school in our area which means that it is CHEAP. And she is good. So good, in fact, that she has been invited to work for some major hair/color lady in NY, NY. So my girl, Jess, is leaving me and is moving to NY in the spring. I think Jess is pretty well-known in her school for her coloring skills and I LOVE what she did with my hair.

This summer I had her color my hair for the first time - ever. I mean, I am 30 and I had never colored my hair (with the exception of my brief trials of Sun-In in high school). So I went from dark blonde to blonde this summer. Saturday, though, I wanted to add some of those trendy, cute stripe highlights - and I got them!!! She did 2 different colors and so many people walked by and told her what an awesome job she did and how cool the colors are. And now I am BLONDE!! Wow - I'm really blonde. Dave said he couldn't find me at church because its so different.

So here's the deal with the photos... I took them of myself by setting the timer and sitting in front of the camera. I took many, many photos and learned a lot while doing it:
1) My left side is my better side
2) I look the best (according to me) when my head is tilted down and to the right
3) You can't get an accurate idea of the colors based on the pictures
4) the hairstyle is not much different, but I still like it a lot.

and here is the biggest thing I learned...
5) I guess I was never so unhappy with my hairstyle as much as my hair color. While looking at photos with the girls yesterday I kept cringing at the drab, unexciting blend of blonde and brown that my hair had become. This blonde/stripe is definitely exciting me... The hairstyle is pretty much the same as I have worn it for years, but the color is amazing (for me:)

So here you go:

And just because me and Nora had so much fun taking our own pictures:

Oh and again - I felt like the smiles were exploding off of my face... man! I need to do something about that.

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! The color looks great on you! It lights up your face. Can't wait to see it in person. But, now you have to find someone else who will do your color for cheap since your girl is moving.

And that picture of you and Nora is adorable. Definitely frame-worthy!

Vavavavoom! It's just super! And not to be tacky (yea, right), but the lighter color makes you look younger! That's funny of me to say, because you are so young! LOL! Love the bangs too. And the flippies!! Glad you had mucho success. :)
