Bye Bye Blonde

October 23, 2008

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I talked about trying to "break up" with my hair stylist?

I have bitten the bullet and shamefully, left the stylist that I have gone to for years. Our children attend the same school and we both pick them up daily. The minute I get out of my car.....he will know I have gone to someone else....and I do not do well in these types of situations. There is no easy way to tell someone that there "work" is not what it used to be. I stuck it out for a long time always giving the benefit of the doubt, but enough was enough.....I needed a CHANGE!!

My hair has been in an inbetween stage for months....letting a really short cut grow out and I just can't deal anymore...my time is limited and I just do not have an extra 20 minutes to play around trying to get my hair to fall into place.

Short and sassy is calling my name and it was time to say bye bye to the blonde.....

And hello brunette...

I need to play around with the new do a little bit, it always looks better when you style it yourself..but overall I am thrilled with the new look and glad I finally made the move!

You all now me so well.....almost everyone guessed "hair" as my change!

Oh Lisa,
It's beautiful...and definitely a change! You look stunning...but you looked stunning before the cut!!
Good luck with the "old" stylist. I hope it all goes well.

Oh my goodness!!

Before our trip to China I was a regular at my hair salon... now I haven't been since JUNE!! I have SOOOO got to get there! Thanks for the inspiration.

You look beautiful!

Darling...the color really faltters your skin tone!!! Oh...good luck with the stylist issue...that IS a hard one...I don't envy you!!

I love the new do... but I disagree that it ALWAYS looks better when you style it yourself. That may be true for SOME of us, but not ALL. Ahem. Yes, I refer to myself.

Jboo said...

Wow -- that looks great!! Sometimes you just have to leave a hairdresser and get someone new! Love the new "do"!!

I love your new hair cut and color. the brown is so warm and perfect for fall and all the fall colors you will be wearing. You look wonderful.. I have a question with your LID or LED date when is yours and what date are they working on now?

It looks great! Oh no, I'm laughing a little at seeing the old hair dresser at school and him saying...are you seeing someone else, ha! If it's closer to your house that would be a good excuse :) You look beautiful!

CC said...

Looking good!

Monogramchick said...

oh my goodness, it looks wonderful! however, the other was not bad, you are so beautiful! I love the color it is so rich and has such depth, the cut is fun and sassy too! what fun :)

Jennifer said...

I love it! You look great! I have been wanting to do the same thing, but I am a big chicken! I am cutting mine short next week, can't wait! Hope you have a beautiful fall weekend...

sara said...

love it love it love it!!!!

Sharie said...

LOVE that color!!!
It really warms your skin:) You look more gorgeous than ever!

Good move. The old stylist will "get it" when he sees you. That's ALL it will take.
I had to break up with a stylist because he wouldn't cut my hair short. After I switched and he saw it, he knew I'd done the right thing.

Michelle said...

OOooooooooo..........LOVE it! Beautiful color! I have been wanting to go darker for awhile now but am too scared. Maybe I should bite the bullet too! Yours is fantastic!

Denise C said...

Holy cow is right!!! I absolutely LOVE it girl!!! It is so gorgeous! The cut is so sassy....and just fits your face perfectly!!! I love it!!!
I tried earlier to leave a comment on the previous post...but blogger was NOT cooperating!!! anyway....I was guessing hair as well...and honestly, I am ready for a change too....just not sure what to do!
Now....tell me...what does your itinerary look like?!?!? Are you coming anywhere near me???
Keeping my fingers crossed!
Hugs!

sarah @ a beach cottage said...

oh my goodness, you are so brave!!! I am addicted to my blonde but have been feeling like a change

I can't believe how fantastic it looks, so nice with your skin colour and the cut is gorgeous, one good stylist you found there, it's good to change but I know what you mean about being with the same one especially if you see them regularly

Felicia said...

Hi Lisa,

I knew it was the hair! It's looks amazing and sooooo you. I'm dealing with the exact same problem right now...I've made an appt w/my bosses hairdresser this afternoon to touch me up since we're going away in two weeks and the roots aren't doing it for me and my guy keeps fudging up my hair, wish me luck! How did Pat feel sleeping next to another woman!

I love your new "do". The brunette looks great on you!

I hope things go smoothly when you run into the old hair dresser. I am sure it will be okay but I am like you...my stomach would be in knots.
