Bye, Bye 80's Hair.....maybe not

Well, I did it. I bit the bullet and got a new do. I have had the same hair style for over 20 years and finally I had enough. I read the other day that 80's hair was making a come back, and my hair has been stuck in 1983 well, since 1983. I told my wonderful stylist that I wanted something a little different, easier, younger. She began cutting. I sat, nervously as Sydney watched from across the room and said, "your getting it cut that short!" Using much the same tone as her Daddy used when the anesthesiologist prepared my first epidural, and my comforting husband said, "You're gonna stick THAT in her SPINE!!!" I cringed. At both remarks. Well, the epidural was not that bad, and my hair is not short.

Do y'all remember in Steel Magnolias when Shelby said you "can't mess up M'Lynn's hair, you just tease it and make it look like a brown football helmet"....Well, that is much the same with me, except instead of teasing it, you just curl it. AND IT ALWAYS LOOKS THE SAME. My wonderful hair lady had it lookin' kinda spunky and cute when I left there. I stopped at Wal-Mart to buy $30 worth of hair product. I am SOOO challenged in the beauty market. I don't know the difference between sculpting gel, styling wax, and smoothing compound. It all sounds like something that should be sold in the craft department to me. So, when any of y'all have a minute I need someone to take me shopping for some hair gunk,,,and a new bra, which I have yet to get. And by the way, my 19 year old niece read that and said "You mean you have never been fitted for a bra?" I am so sheltered....

Ummmmm, er, maybe later,LOL. The funny thing is, 5 inches less and it still seems to look the same. When hubby came home he said, "did you get your hair trimmed today?"...Uh, yeah! I can't wait to see Ginny tonight to see what she says. I will try to get a pic on here later. I have not mastered the "self portrait" picture taking just yet.

Yes, I definitely agree with upside brown. We need to see a pic. But don't even get me started on bras! I have been fitted but I think you need to specify to your fitter the goals one has for one's bra. Spiritually, I want my cup to overfloweth. Otherwise, containment is key - supportive, defining containment.
