Is This My Haircut?

I don't know how this happened. I went to finally--finally!--get some color added to my hair for a little grey coverage. But somehow through a miscommunication I was not able to get my hair colored. So I asked if they could give me a trim. After a bit of discussion about how much length to leave the stylist chopped off a ton of my hair but left a small whispy section the agreed upon length. She thinned out my hair all over and flat ironed it which I have never done in my life and will never do again. The result is I think I look like Joan Jett.



Wes says he thinks it's cute but then it's his job to say things like that. Younger son immediately laughed at me and said, "Is that your haircut??"

In more satisfying news, I joined the sleeves to the body of Lloie's Cardigan. I feel like I've been working on this sweater since the dawn of time. Okay, since February. This feels really major. I have a week to finish the yoke, steek it and knit the edging. I might make it.




Heading off to spin a bit for Tour de Fleece.

Been there, done that. Hair grew back. However, I do agree that it's quite fetching and modern!

I like it! It looks like a good wash 'n wear cut that you can jazz up if you want.

Sasha said...

Look at your cute & sassy new do!

I like it, but let's face it -- without the flat ironing, who knows what will happen when you wash it. Why do so many stylists insist upon thinning out your hair and then ironing out?

Again, I think it looks great, but I understand that you're thinking about what it's going to look like when you let it air dry, etc.

Love your hair. Very nice.

Piling on with the "like it" - it looks clean and sophisticated, and I hope you can find a way to wear it that doesn't involve an hour of prep.

You look great!

Jennifer said...

I LOVE it!! Super cute, fresh and youthful.

Laura said...

I think it looks great! Clean and cooler, literally. Or maybe it is just the 100 degree heat we've been having in Boston.

It looks beautiful!

But your titular question reminded me of:

This is your haircut.

This is your haircut on drugs.

Any questions?

I like it! I'm sure Wes was being genuine. The most important thing though is "do you like it?" It always takes me at least a week to decide if I'm truly liking a new hairstyle.

It looks awesome!!! I love it. Very hip...
Can't wait to see the finished sweater. I soooo wish I was joining you and Kim at camp...I'll be thinking of and missing you both.
