The (long) Journey To a Cut and Color

Aren't those highlights just so adorable? and the cut?  Hmmmm...I just love it:) Now, the long story of the journey to it.

So, I get bored easily, I get bored really really easily. So, it was one of those bored-ly nights last night. It was just after dinner and the hubby had left for school, so feeling a bit out of sorts, I took the shears to my hair. I cut off quite a bit of hair because I underestimated how important it is to see the back of your hair clearly if you are aiming to get an even cut. Well, an even cut I did not get.

Yup, I cut quite a bit of hair off...who does that?
After realizing what a mess I had made, I prepared myself to go get a proper cut from a salon. To prep for the salon visit, I decided to blow out my hair since I wasn't sure if the salon could cut curly hair and I didn't want them to rip what was left of my hair off.

You see how uneven it was?
So, I blow dried and followed suit with a flat iron set at 300 degrees since I didn't really want it bone straight. After straightening it, I put my hair into 5 flat twists to go to bed.

When I woke up in the morning, I unraveled the twists and headed off to the salon.

So, I get to the salon and the stylist does not want to cut my hair straight since I do not wear it straight so she shampooed (I haven't used a shampoo in months so it was weird) in readiness for the color and cut. Hmmmm color I say huh?

Well, I've been toying with the idea of getting some highlights ever since Cassidy over at naturalselectionblog got hers done. So I thought, what the heck, might as well go for it and that I did.

We settled on the two colors I wanted...a red and coppery color and then we talked about the shape I wanted. I took a zillion pictures on my nook to show her. I knew I wanted a pixie cut. It's easy to see how that looks straight but I wasn't sure if the stylist could picture it curly so I took some pictures of MckenzieRenae who has an amazing blog and an amazing cut.

When all has been said and done, I LOVE the results and couldn't have asked for anything more :) Enjoy the pictures below. I will take more pictures of course as the weeks go by to chronicle how it is coming along.
 It was really shrunken in the picture above but you can see that it is longer up top than the sides 

 The back is cropped pretty short too but I love how curly it is. 

So, what do you ladies think? Love or hate it? Will you do it?


  1. I love it! I also got haircut today. I got a devacut and it was inspired by your last cut a couple of months ago. The back and sides are neck length now and its tapered in the back as you go up to the top. The top is now the longest section.
