Is it wrong to be so picky about my hair? I mean, as it is I am not fond of my random curly, dry, dishwater blonde, mess of hair. It is just hard to do, it doesn't look good curly and takes a long time to straighten and there are always dark roots. I mean I could just dye it brown, but I look unhealthy with it brown and keeping it blonde, well that gets expensive. To top it all off I feel like I can't trust anyone to cut my hair because somehow a trim will turn in a botch. What is it about hair stylist straightening curly hair, somehow it can't be done.

Well I finally had it with my hair. I am having a baby in 4 weeks and I had to have some sanity and feel semi-good about myself while going through labor. Plus I hadn't had my hair cut since November and just about every end was split. I went with my friend emily's recommendation since her hair always looks cute and it is naturally curly, plus she doesn't have to spend $130 for a cut and color.

So I went to see Jennifer, expecting that I would leave the appointment with the usual stress of wanting to straighten my hair right away and wishing I didn't have one short random layer. I was pleasantly surprise. She did a good job, she did highlights, a trim, thinned it out and fixed some of my previous mess ups. And the shocker, she was actually able to straighten it and I didn't have to fix a thing when I got home. The bonus of it all was that the total was $ 74.00 ($90 with a tip). I thought that was a good price, compared to what I have payed in the past (Brett thought otherwise). I wouldn't go as far as to say it was the best hair cut I have ever had (only Ali could achieve that). Being the picky person that I am, it is a little lighter than I wanted and a few of the underneath hairs are a little bit blotchy, but overall I would go back to her for sure.
I don't have a great picture of my new cut, so here is a picture of me and my friend Jamie, who is due just a few weeks after me (my new cut and color are in the picture).


  1. I love it! But of course I really always think your hair looks nice. I usually hate mine, too.
