For my tweet peeps...

...and whoever else might be interested.

I honestly can't remember the last time I paid for a FULL session at hairapy. You know, cut AND color. So it was with great excitement and some nervousness that I set out today to do just that. I decided to ignore the husband's suggestion to go platinum. I usually aim to please him, but I don't think he quite understands that freckled fair skin and platinum don't mix. There's no need for me to try and look more washed out then I already do. But I hope he's a little pleased because I gussied up my natural auburnish color (Yes, it's a color. It's the color of a youthful vibrant auburn gone brownish with age. How's that for a description?) with some darker red and blond highlights. And I decided to go a little sassy with the cut. I must say, I'm pleased as punch at how it turned out. And deem this hairstylist "a keeper"! One of the many reasons being: she spent quality time explaining and showing me how to style it and different ways of styling it and all kinds of useful tips. A must for me who is bond by The Curse of ThehairthatIcan'tstyleathomeandhaveitlookthesameasitdidwhenaprofessionaldidit-andthusitlooksrediculous.

Soooo...
getting on with it...

Um. Yeah. Me trying to look sassy. When you don't got it, you don't got it. Let's just go with me looking cheesy and nerdy.

...pretty sure I stink at self portraits...
To get the effect featured in this photo simply clean your bathroom mirror, wait 1 day maybe less, and then step back and enjoy the speckled toothpaste look that was achieved by your spouse (cause it definitely isn't me that holds this talent. ahem. I just hold the talent for noticing it and then either ignoring it or taking pictures of it and posting it on my blog for all the world to see.) But, hey, it shows off my highlights and that's all that matters.

Well, there you have it.

On a totally different note...I'll be on a little blogging break for about a week. But when I come back prepare yourself for a profound post on "The Contents Of My Purse". Now, won't that be special.

...if that doesn't make you come back, I don't know what will.

Looks AWESOME! I love the cut and the color! I usually do the cheapo places where I go home with my hair wet and hope that it turned out OK.

We don't pay for any hair cuts other than the one I get every six months so you'd think I'd splurge and do it right, but I can't bring myself to do it. $9 color every three months is about as exciting as it gets around here!

Enjoy your break - see ya when you get back!

It looks great! VERY sassy! The highlights and color make it so shiny and healthy looking. I think you chose wisely and made a good decision to not go platinum. The warmer color looks good with your skin tone. Thanks so much for sharing! We'll miss you, but I can't wait to hear about the contents of your purse!

Look at those HIGHLIGHTS!!! Oh, I may have to go back to the salon. My box color just isn't cutting it.

Gorge-e-mous!

Oooohhh, watch out sassy Catty!

Meow.

You are looking all kinds of hottie-ma-tottie. Loving everything about it!

I'll miss you while you're gone. Holding my breath for the purse deal. That's a cliffhanger if I've ever seen one.

Da ha ha ha harling. Absolutely the sassiest. Makes me want to go brown/auburn with lurvely highlights, instead of doing the best I can with dishwater blonde.

Ooh la, la! Nice hair!
I'm tempted to cut my hair short again...but my hubby likes it long.
It's like, when my hair is short I want it long, and when my hair is long I want it short!
But, I don't think i'll be cutting it anytime soon. It's taken me too darn long to grow it out!

Go ahead, rock on with your bad self....
