Surrender Flag and Mom Hair

 

I‘m waving the white flag of surrender!

We have all officially had the stomach flu in our house in the past week and a half.  Allison was the last to join the ranks late yesterday.

I’ve been cooped up taking care of my family and being sick myself, so today I’m off for a little “me” time.

Heather is giving me fresh highlight, chunky highlights and a trim!

Ahhhhh, to have someone wash MY hair! That will be heaven today!! There’s just something SO relaxing about laying back in that chair with my feet up someone massaging my scalp, shampooing my hair…….

I get lots of compliments on my hair since Heather became a stylist!

This cut has been fun and easy to manage! For the first time in years I feel like I have a hair “style”.

After all, my mom did inform me the other day “Aren’t you getting a little old for long hair?” GASP!

For this weeks Works for me Wednesdays………

I’m saying my HAIRCUT works for me!

    Thanks ladies!

    Candice YES! it’s VERY easy to fix – blow dry and then I use a Chi Flat iron and it lasts all day – or if I do it before bed, it usually looks perfect in the morning, I hardly have to do anything to it!!

    I love the hair cut and I’ve never understood the saying aren’t you getting to old for long hair…really what is too old, my mothers friend used to tell her that all the time, well my mother has a neck like a turtle peeking its head out of its shell…really long and short hair is hiddous on her but she cut it, to only spend month crying about it…ugh…LOL.. Your hair cut looks like it was made for you, I’m always jealous of women with short hair it always looks like they were born with it then I try it and ugh,,I look so stupid…lol..I’m going back long, I’m just comfortable there and Gunny and I are going to renew are values and I want my hair long for it…2 years…Hugs and love the hair…great cut…Lisa xo

    Lisa I should post a picture of how long my hair was just a few years ago – but I didn’t go cold turkey to this short – it did it gradually and then worked into this style/cut. As much as I love it, I do miss my long hair and putting it up. I tell my daughter I’d like to try some good extensions!! – but man their expensive!! I love your hair too!!
