Before & After

So what do you think?

Before:

















After:






I have to be honest. When I walked out of the salon, I wasn't happy. In fact, I cried the whole way to White House/Black Market. But, after sleeping on it and fixing my hair myself this morning, I am happy with the result. The more I look at it and get used to it, the more I like it. And when I compare it to my "before," I think it looks a lot better. At least it was a change and I don't feel frumpy anymore.


I have to thank Nikki at Ladies & Gentlemen Salon and Spa. My tears of unhappiness came from the back of the hair. Because it is so light right now and the back is cut shorter at the top, you could see all of my dark hair underneath. Nikki reassured me that we could fix it and I came in this morning for more foil. Here's the best part-no charge to fix it! She worked on my hair for one and 1/2 hours today for no charge. I am one happy customer!

If you are in the Cleveland area, you have to try Ladies & Gentlemen Salon and Spa at Legacy Village. I love going there. With each haircut, you receive a free arm, face and hand massage. They also touch up your make-up when you are done. And the best part, besides the Aveda products, no tipping. That's right. You aren't allowed to tip there. I love this place and have always shared with my friends what a great place it is.

Change is good. It makes you feel better and at least makes the day or week interesting. I am glad I made the change this week. Thank you for helping me to pick it out. So, what color of hair should I try next? Red? Black? Don't worry hubby, I am not that brave. Blonde it is.

I apologize for the quality of the photos. My five year old tried to take them and these were the best that I had. You should see some of the discarded photos. I had more double chins than I thought possible.

I really like the new do! I think it looks great! I recently did the same thing myself and walked away happy. I'm still debating a new color. It'll no doubt be some form of red since that's what I always tend to like. Congrats on the new do, you look spectacular!

Somehow, Google lost about 10 comments here. Sorry to those that commented. I read them before they were taken away. So sorry.

It is DARLING. Definitely a good look for you. It frames your face rather than dragging it earthward. More Cute Mommy than Frumpy Mommy.
