Short and Edgy

January 25, 2012

I needed a change in a bad way and have been contemplating going super short with my hair for months. When I found a really cute inspiration photo online last week(thank you pinterest), I knew I needed to call my stylist and make the appointment before I talked myself out of it.

Yesterday after work, I nervously walked into the salon and watched as big huge clumps of hair fell on the floor. It was a little shocking at first, but I have to say..........

I am absolutely THRILLED with it and wish I would have taken the plunge long ago.
It took me a less than a minute to do my hair for work this morning.
A truly no fuss, wash and go look!!

I couldn't hold my big camera to get the back of my head, so I figured I would use this IPhone shot to show y'all how funky the back looks. I actually used this shot as a Facebook teaser last night:)

Anyway, I am lovin' the fresh new fun look!!!
It was the perfect pick me up and just what I needed to help keep the winter blues from setting in.
I was anxious to get home last night to see what Pat thought, I wasn't too sure he would love it as much as I do, but he really does. Every chance he gets, he tells me how much he likes the "new me".

That one little piece in the front sort of falls in my face and I like to pin it back.
I have a few fancy bobbypins with little doo-dads on the end, but I am going to need to stock up on a few more. If anyone happens to see any fun clips, be sure to let me know!!

Pin It

I love it Lisa! I think it makes you look a little younger too (not that you look old before!)

Its nice to see photos of the "blogger" ....I always find it difficult to get in the pic.

Now, you must make sure Reags doesnt try to copy Mummy.....hide those scissors...hehe!

Very nice indeed! It sure does look fresh, but well, I must admit I've already forgotten how your hair was before you had it cut...

I am growing my hair out a tiny bit. I will e-mail you a picture!

LOVE the short and edgy look Lisa...that's how I usually wear my hair but everyone is asking me to see what my hair looks like long(on account of a wig I wore at Halloween!) I bet you feel a bit a sassy now huh? c'mon admit it!

I love it! I agree it makes you look younger - it was my first thought. Plus think how much easier it will be to take photos with your hair out of your face:)
Is Sarah wanting a re-do of her new-do now too?

It reminds me of the shag from the 1970's. It is so interesting how hair and clothing styles reintroduce themselves every few decades. Now Sarah will want the same haircut!

I've worn my short for YEARS and love it that way. You are correct it quick and easy! No fussing with curling irons!! I'm up and out in the morning!!

Keisha said...

LOVE it GIRL!!!!! It looks great on you! Aren't you glad you took the plunge?! ;)

Virginia said...

So stinkin cute! I can't tell you how many times I've been tempted to do a cut like this, but I'm quite sure I wouldn't pull it off like you do. It looks so simple to manage but it's sure not short on style.
