And then things went south...

My Grandpa used to say, "the only difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut was two weeks." Boy, I wish that was the truth. You can see my matronly teacher hair-do here. It was a big improvement from the lifeless mop that adourned my head prior to this cut but it wasn't quite what I was looking for. Enter haircut #2. (You can read about haircut #1 here.)

I decided on a fun/funky little salon in downtown Asheville when I just couldn't handle my hair for one more minute. My stylist was a cute young girl with a darling hat on. (Maybe not a good sign.) But she wore it well. Her shirt was see through. I don't know that that is relevant to this post, but there you have it. She was very quiet. Fine by me. (Especially while having my hair washed.)

Now for some pictures that crack me up. Apparently self portraits is not my forte.


So Avery humored me: (I cannot believe I'm actually posting this one.Bleh.)


I did not want to go short and not love it. And I did not love it. Enter haircut #3. Back to above mentioned salon. Same girl. No hat this time. I liked the hat. Shirt- not transparent. That was better.

"I just need a little something. Still." I said.

I'm thinking when I tried to explain what I didn't like about the cut something got lost in translation...


And what she heard was, "please-just take a big chunk out. Right there. I won't be needing that."

And see, if I hold my head just so and tilt my chin down just a bit, you can hardly notice it. Right? Just nod.

Nothing like a bad haircut to bring out the vanity.

And also, I bought a hat!

You are adorable!!! You have one of those faces that looks good with any haircut!

I have decided it is a waste of money to pay for haircuts. I never like the way they turn out-except when I talk a friend into doing it. They always do exactly what you ask and they are your friend so you won't be mad not matter what! And it is free! All my best haircuts were done by friends (or myself) and were free-seriously...Just think of the money you would save...

I think it's cute...who needs that pesky hair right there blowing into your mouth or getting stuck to your lip gloss :)
On a side note, I knew Avery looked like you but boy howdy you two are basically twins! So cute!

I like it. I vote for 1 and 3 but you can pull anything off!

Carmen said...

It looks good, Dest! :) You do have a face that can wear any haircut though. ():)

I feel your pain though! I should have had Ronnie take a picture of my monstrosity in May! ugh--it still makes me mad thinking about the chop job I got!

Carmen said...

Okay--my first comment came out wrong...I meant, your hair always looks good. :)

That bottom picture you couldn't even tell there was a "chunk". It is cute on you. Now that I went short I don't think that I am ever going to go long again. I love short hair so much better.

You are hill-air-ee-us. And I love your hair. How can you call it a mop? It is luscious. Even with a chunk out of the side.

You have a good attitude about a bad haircut. Years ago I got a REALLY bad one. I was devasted for months. I wish that I would've taken a picture of me when it was that bad. To prove how horrible it was, and to laugh about it now. You look Great. I hate telling a hairdresseer what I want, and then having it not be what I wanted. Ugh!

Been there, done that, and it does seem like forever for it to grow back, and it will. You still look beautiful though!
