Finally did it!...

Friday, August 05, 2011

I've been thinking about it, talking about it for a while now. I've finally done it.

That's me, earlier today. Disregard the fact that I look washed out and exhausted. Look at the hair. The bad sad bad (did I say that already?) hair.

That's me, after Lorraine worked her magic on me! Seriously, the woman understood exactly what I wanted; I had a picture that 4My2Kidz sent me earlier today (thanks Molly!) and explained I'm an athlete, I run, I Zumba, I sweat and I needed help.

It's like finding my hair's soulmate once again. My haircut looks like I feel now! I'm so stoked, and I can't wait to go to the gym to try it out as I'm lifting and sweating!

    Very cute and fits you well! I expect you will love it. Check out your helmet fit before you get ready to ride again. I had to tighten mine down with my short hair cut, and also with wt loss. Who'd a thought I carried fat on my head?

    WTG!: You look terrific! And I love the new profile too!

    I am okay with just putting my hair in a ponytail.

    Its awesome :)

    I liked the longer hair, but I agree, it did not accent your face, and your figure nearly as much as the new cut does.... and you honestly look thinner .... and I think that's awesome!!

    I love it. I was ready to "whack" mine off at my appointment last night, but my hairdresser/friend talked me out of it. I'm probably going to wish I had when we get back from a motorcycle ride tomorrow in 95 degree weather. emoticon

    GAW-JUS! But then again, you always look beautiful! That personality of yours shines through no matter what hairstyle you're sporting! I've gotta decide if I'm gonna get my curls cut off and try a straighter 'do again because the water here in western Ohio is SO hard that it makes my perm looks terrible! BTW, we're in Oxford, Ohio, near the Indiana border. Wheeling, WVa. was our hotel stop coming from Philly to here during the move. I did a summer internship near Lewisburg, WVa. back in the 1990's (yes, I visited the Greenbrier Hotel that summer).

    Been thinking of you and that craft project I've kept on hold to make for you. I'm still unpacking the house a bit here and there when I'm not working or dealing with the family (which doesn't leave much time for unpacking!). Glad you had a great race today! emoticon Christine

    You look adorable and the cut looks so easy to manage! Enjoy!

    I wanted to get a short cut pre-Spark and I've decided to let it wait until a big reward.

    You look great. Amazingly you look so much younger with shorter hair - who would have figured!

    Im sure it will be a total boon for you not to have to spend so much time drying your hair etc after being at the gym. Just wash and go!

    Take care and thanks for your continued support - I really appreciate it. x
