One of the first things I decided upon discovering that I was pregnant, was that one of the last things I'd do before the baby was born was get a hair cut. Having spent 29+ years with myself has taught me that I tend to get a bit on the lazy (i.e. slovenly) side when I have a lot going on, so I was pretty sure that the transition from 9 months of pregnancy/baby preparations to becoming a new mom was not necessarily going to be a pretty one.
This is from the girl who had to make putting on make up a New Years Resolution, after all.
So, on Friday I headed out to my cute little hair dresser and requested a hair cut that I could neglect. Basically, mom hair that doesn't look like mom hair.
(See, I'm so mysterious and full of contradictions: I don't do my hair, yet I have my own hair stylist, yet I ask her for hair I don't have to style myself. I am such an enigma.)
And over here on the right is what we ended up with. The idea is that I can let it air dry after washing, and that I can let is grow for months and months before separating myself from my offspring long enough to get it cut again.
Do you think it looks like mom hair?
What do you think?
I think I like it a lot, but I also think that it makes me look my age. It's a 29-year-old hair cut. It's the right kind of 29.
So, here I am, literally sitting pretty with my new hair, all ready for my big date with this extremely young man I've been waiting to meet. Do you think he'll like my hair cut?
