Well, that's what it looks like. I went to Indulgence to get my hair cut for the first time in way too long yesterday. I spent hours looking at pictures of hairstyles and finally came up with a really cute cut that Nicole Richie has (http://www.prohaircut.com/nicole-richie-nedium-hair-cuts.html) and took the picture in. What I got is absurd. Totally absurd. Uneven, hacked-looking layers (does it even look like Nicole HAS layers? Didn't think so.) and whispy 80's wanna-be bangs. Seriously?
It's not about the hair. It'll grow back. It's the fact that Jack and I are finally at a place where I can actually get up every morning and shower and put on make up and put on a cute outfit. I can do that now - I have the time and the energy and it's important because it makes me feel good to take that time attending to myself instead of taking care of everyone else. It's an hour a day but it's MY hour. I wanted a fun hair style and I made a mental commitment to actually take the time to style it every morning instead of just putting it in a pony tail. I don't know when we're going to try for another baby, but once that first trimester hits, I'm not going to have the energy and who wants to spend time on hair and makeup when you've got a big ole belly and pregnant chubby? And then when the new baby gets here... you know the drill. So this - this in-between time - is my time. It's time that I can enjoy being a mom to one kiddo, and a wife, and a 25 year old woman. I have my figure back and I'm tan and I feel decently good about myself for the first time in nearly 2 years, so I wanted a cute style to match all of that. I don't think that's a huge request, so I'm pretty disappointed in the way it turned out.
I'm going to go take a shower and pull out all my hair products and all my curling irons and blowdryer attachments and see what I can do with it. Otherwise, I'm going to make an appointment at Shebangs and see if they can't unfuck my hair. Wish me luck!
