Sure, I put up a post about my hair and you all decide to comment. I see how you are. I’m just going to start asking what color I should paint my toenails just to get some comments out of you guys. Geez! Don’t you people know I’m down to one blog and I neeeed the comments. See what an attention whore I am.
After I made the horrible rotten mistake of taking a photo of myself I quickly realized that oh dear god that is what I look like. How sad is that. No wonder I feel like crap all the time. Who wants to look at that? I carry that around with me all day every day. The worst part is I posted it out there for the whole of the internets* to see. I think watching Real Housewives of Orange County really did kill off those last two brain cells.
I promptly got on the phone and called my hairstylist. It is pretty bad when you call your hair stylist, of 15 years, and say Hi Teresa. Her response was, “Elle! You need your hair colored!” She couldn’t even see me. How did she know. Oh yeah… because she’s done my hair for 15 years and the last time she saw me was 6 months ago. I was lucky and got an appointment for the next day (yesterday).
Armed with my fabulous photo I headed off to get my hair done. Oh dear lord was she ever excited to cut my hair. She made me realize that all that hair had been growing for the last 2 years. That hair held all the pain, stress and anxiety that I endured for the last 2 years. She, in her weird hairdresser way, made me realize that cutting it off would be a good thing. This isn’t to say that I didn’t cry a little when I saw 6″ long chunks of my hair falling to the floor.
Teresa also has this knack of talking me into things that I am just not sure about. Remember when I said I didn’t want red? It looked a little like this:
But not red, I?ve done red & I?m done with red.
When I talked with her about color she said, I think you should go red with chunky blonde highlights. She once again convinced me that a new do needed a new color. Never say never I guess.
*You people have no clue as to how much photoshopping was involved in making that photo even partially acceptable to put on the internet.
**Other than a slight color correction no photoshopping was done to either of these photos.
