I have finally broken out of my hair rut.
I got new hair! I love it! I love my hairdresser for having the foresight to give me a cut that actually goes with my hair texture and curl! I have been sporting the same old 'do for years now, varying length only by inches, staying safe with longish layers. Giving myself some long swoopy bangs was about as adventurous as I got.
Now? My hair is all layered up and stylish and blonde. Well, some serious blond highlights are happening...I would never give up the red, not for anything. It's too much the crux of my being.
me, lucy, and the new hair

Maybe it's not that drastic (no one at work said anything), but the sign of a good cut is when you wash it, let it dry naturally, and voila.....fabulous looking hair! I used to be so preoccupied with the straight sleek look, now I'm embracing my natural curl. Why didn't I do this so long ago! We always want what we don't have, right?
I feel so chic and professional and so un-frumpy! Hippie-look be gone! Pollyanna-look be gone! Laura Ingalls Wilder-look be gone! Goddamn, I've got flair! Flair hair!
