The deed is done! I've gone shorty short again and I'm LOVIN' it! Here are some pics from the day. The hair was cut in two stages. Kathleen took off a huge chunk of it before doing my color. For the event she chose to do FOUR different colors instead of just my usual two highlight colors. Fun, fun. After the color was in it was time to hack off the rest! The results are PERFECTION in my humble opinion. Love, love, love it. Just enough hair to allow me some femininity but not too much. Just right. So, basically, Goldilocks and the three bears hair. (which now makes me think of "bear hair" ...anyone want to tell me who used to have "bear hair" in our family?!?!?!?).
Without further ado, the pics.


The "Before"
(This pic is several months old but gives you an idea of how long it had gotten...)

Kathleen. a.k.a. the world's greatest hairdresser

After the first cutting

Lots of color

Sophie thought my foils were awesome. The kids always get a kick out of seeing me in foils every couple months...
The finished product. (Ignore the jammies and lack of light)

As he was taking the pictures Chase said, "Stop looking so insane." Didn't realize I was...but it makes sense.

Looking emo. Didn't mean to. Just trying not to look insane.

p.s. RUN, don't walk, to your nearest library and check out "Princess Academy" by Shannon Hale. You'll thank me later.

It looks AWESOME! You're lucky that you can wear your hair short like that. It looks great! Love the color too. Michelle told me about your sister-in-law, if I remember correctly, when I asked her if she knew anyone who does hair. I think she might've recommended her. Do you think she'd mind having another client? :) You look great!!!

Mandi said...

I could never pull off the short hair, but you do it beautifully! It looks GREAT!

Sara said...

I love, love, love the hair! It looks fantastic!

Sara Kilgore said...

SASSY! Awesome. Does Kathleen make house calls to Iowa?

Taylor started the bear hair trend summer of 1997. The summer I'm sure you fondly remember. It was her braided piggies all knotted up on top of her head like bear ears. You used to also tell her she had things like hippos and elephants living in her hair. Good times.

I ordered 2 Shannon Hale books from Amazon, I can't remember if Princess Academy is one of them. Probably not going to be checking anything out of the Cedar Rapids library for the next 3 years. Put These Is My Words on your list. Great fast summer read. The Host is good, too, but not like Twilight.

Wow! wow!You look spectacular! I just love Kathleen.

Nice work, Sara. I remember a LOT of cute days with Tay's bear hair. I can't believe that was 11 years ago and she's all grown up!!!!! My favorite was actually when we took the bear hair OUT. Super cute!

Alyssa said...

Amazing, amazing hair!! I really, really love it and it makes me wish I could pull of short hair, or that I could actually do something with my own hair!!!

Oh my gosh - it is SOOOOO cute! I love it! I can't wait to see it in person! And I totally agree - Kathleen is the best hair dresser!

Lisa Z said...

You so rock!! That cut is gorgeous on you.

Mike and Rachael Hohmann said...

It's fabulous! I'm currently trying to grow mine out, but with this heat, I may have to cut it before I get there.
Princess Academy - wonderful book. I checked it out once because Goose Girl wasn't in and couldn't put it down until I was done.

Ben & Diane said...

Cute, Cute and Cute. Did I say cute?? Kathleen did a great job.

Chris and Sarah Wise said...

Love it! You are a totally hot mom. Now you've also motivated me to stop being lazy and get my own cut! It's just such a great feeling to have a great new look!

PaBlanchards said...

Love it!

Did you cry? :-)

Hey Anna, I second the motion to have your sister-in-law come to Iowa. She could have 2 people as customers. Your hair looks great! I love it!
You have a great looking family!

Hi Anna! Dale and I set our blog to private and I wanted to add you as a reader. I don't have your email address though, so if you get a chance send over an email to me and that way I can email you an invite to the blog. Hope you guys had a great 4th of July!
