My hair has been fairly long or very long since I was about nine, so this was a drastic change for me...but it's a new year...why not have a new 'do?
Let's hope my new haircut looks a little better than it did when I was nine:
We have a very quirky older guy at our church (who sometimes makes the young ladies feel uncomfortable, although he is harmless), and he said to me today, "You look exquisitely beautiful. What did you do differently today?" I said, "Well, I got about seven or eight inches cut off of my hair." He responded, "No, that's not it. I think it's something with your makeup. Are you doing your makeup differently?" At this point I am thinking, Umm...random...why would he notice my makeup? But I responded, "Yeah, I did something different with my makeup--I actually wore some." I had to wear a little makeup for the hair debut, right?!
Here are some photos:
No makeup in this one, taken right after the cut.
Going out to dinner, all spruced up.
Ready for church!
Now that I am at least somewhat used to the haircut, I think I will stop making Ryan take pictures of me posing after I style it each day. It makes me feel a little ridiculous...and quite vain.
My neighbor Mahogany doesn't like my new hairstyle ("WHY, Miss Rachel, WHY??"), but I love hers!
Well...since I got a new haircut on Friday, I guess Ryan figured he may as well get a new injury! He got a horrid sprained ankle while playing basketball with his classmates, and he has been laid up all weekend. If you look very closely at the photo below, you will notice he also got some hot new glasses. I much prefer his new glasses to his new foot injury--I've been waiting on him all weekend!! (Not that I mind, Ryan!)
So, tomorrow, I debut the hair to 130 high school students. I'm somewhat frightened of what they'll have to say...
