Before and after

To get a real idea of what it looked like this morning add about another foot to the length and about another foot to the width and you get an idea of the before
my normal way of wearing it - up in a bun.


And now the new me --

OH - ignore the letter L coming out of my head - and ignore the bad quality of the pictures since it is really hard to take a picture in the mirror in the bathroom using a towel over the shower curtain as a backdrop -- they really do look like mug shots don't they?


Tomorrow we see if I can get it to look like this - it will be easy for the summer and it will dry in minutes instead of the days it took with it long.

Knitting content coming soon I promise! I actually picked up the needles and knit yesterday for a bit and am going to Knitting Circle tomorrow.

Love the new do! And I'm all about the hair drying quicker. Mine isn't terribly thick but seems to take forever to dry.

Wow, I kept my fingers crossed and here you are - the new hairdo gave you a new Springy flavour, a bit flirtatious and fun! ^^

Sachi said...

I love it all! But, oh, those curls! Totally irresistible! I like exclamation points!!!

Trish said...

Like I said....very fresh and very cute!

Love it, Rho, and it's absolutely you for the summer - fashionable, springy, full of life. I have really really thick hair which I used to wear long but now I pay a hairdresser a king's ransom every now and then to tame it into a short layered cut which I can style by running my fingers through it. Who would have thought that 'casual' equates to 'costly'! And the new name for your blog is absolutely right too - far more positive.

So get KNITTING girl!

I love those cute curls! It is so nice to have short hair. So much easier to wash and take care of.

Love the hair. My daughter has curls and I'm so jealous. By the time she was three, when you asked her what kind of hair she had, she'd say "Curly and gorgeous."

Got your comment on my blog post about lyme -- couldn't find an email addy but my doc thinks I have babs too.

You are soooo brave! You look like you've taken 20 years off and it's so cute! Will it stay curly? I have hair down to my butt and often get the urge to chop it all off but then get scared. Did you cut it yourself???

Martha said...

Wowie zowie, what a new do!
I remember commenting to you, at the KR Retreat, about your beautiful hair. And it's still beautiful! Hope you are having fun w/it.

Let those cute little ringlets fly my fellow curly girl!

Oh, I feel your pain. I have excessively curly hair and keep it longish. Some days it takes hours to dry. I'd cut into an adoreable short do too but I fear I would look like Arnold from Different Strokes.
