A new do?



I'm not sure if I ever mentioned this.....but......my sister is my hairdresser.
Not that it matters much or that I thought you were just dying to find out who does my hair....it's just that I thought I'd tell you before I leaped into sharing the horrendous mental anguish I am suffering over....gulp......my hair.
Anyway, I'm not sure if she tells all of her customers this but she does tell her family-customers--"these are scissors in my hands, not a magic wand...."
So, yes, my sister Denise owns a beauty shop and has been my hairdresser since....well....forever.
Before that, she was my Barbie Doll's hairdresser and our dog Flip's hairdresser.....anything that had hair--she cut....
I guess you could say she always wanted to be a hairdresser.....
Thankfully, she's living her dream, doing her dream job...

Around this time of the year, I always get this hankering for a new haircut.
It's tradition.
This year, my hankering has gone full-throttle ---I'm really really craving a whole new look. Chalk it up to my weight loss or the fact that I'm 51 or maybe it's because we had 40+ inches of snow in February or maybe it has something to do with empty nesting.....or.....well, you get the idea....whatever the reason is---I am seriously wrestling with the idea of going with a whole new look.
And, I want to start with my hair.
So, I keep telling Denise--when I see her--that I'm thinking about it.
I tell her when we are chatting on the phone--that I'm thinking about it.
I text her that I am thinking about it.
I tell her that I'm thinking about it on Facebook.
Pretty soon, I'll be sending her smoke signals...that I'm thinking about it.
Because, damn it, I am thinking about it.
No. No. No.
I'm struggling with it.
I'm tormented by it.
I'm stressing over it.
I'm thinking about it.....morning, noon and night.
And, it's not like I can go to my hairdresser and say "what do you think?" and expect to hear what she really thinks.
Because, after all, my sister still wants to be invited for Easter dinner....

Because what she really thinks is---what if she does cut it and I hate it?
What if I start crying and screaming and hole up in my bedroom.....
Besides the fact that there would be no Easter dinner.....she would have to listen to me every single day...forever.
So, instead of encouraging me to throw caution to the wind and go for a whole new look, my sister will give me her standard family line about the scissors-magic wand thing.....
Who could blame her?
She does it not only in self defense but also in self preservation......and she needs somewhere to go for Easter....

Anyway, I really really need to make some kind of decision since I do have to make an appointment to get my roots back to my natural color....
And, once I'm in the chair for one thing....I might as well go all the way.....
Right?

So, here's where I need your help......
I'm looking for a few styles.....


So far, I'm really loving Kris Jenner's look....

Do you have any celeb styles I should consider???

That is a cute style Judi. I think it would be easy to care for too. And if you don't like it, it won't take too long to grow it back, right?? I say go for it!!

I agree with everyone too Judi. Go for it!! I also thought of Lisa Rinna if you didn't want it that short at first. I think both styles will rock on you!!
