A New 'Do

I'm feeling like maybe it's time for a change.

Maybe it's the sunshine that we've been soaking up this past weekend, which has been so incredibly amazing and mood altering.

Aaah, Spring.  I always do a 'lil Spring Cleaning at this time of year.

I've been letting myself my hair go a bit lately, not taking the time in the morning to fix it but instead have just been quickly putting it into a pony-tail.  That's fine if you're going for some exercise, but let's get real:

I've not been exercising.

And it's getting waaaaay too easy to just NOT do my hair.


I don't know what you do when you're feeling like you need a 'lil boost of some sort, but I usually like to do something with my hair.  Usually colour, but this time I'm going to cut it...maybe.

I say "maybe" because I've been through this before.  Many times.  And I know myself.  When it comes to my hair, I've made rash decisions in the past.  I get this feeling, go get my hair CUT and then as soon as I get home I say things like, "I'm growing my hair", and "Don't let me do that again."

But I'm getting sick of my pony-tail.  (Yet I know I'll miss it.)

And I'm going to be 45 this May.  45!!!

I don't feel old, I don't think I look old, and I don't think all of a sudden I need "45-year-old's haircut", if you know what I mean, but can I really pull off this constant pony-tail of mine?  I don't lacks sophistication.  (Oh, and I'm all about that - lol)


But what to do, what to do?

How short do I go?

Here's some possibilities...

Maybe I best sleep on it some more.

I'm really digging number 4...but I think it's one of those hairstyles that once you leave the salon, it will never look like that again.
You know those cuts?
You can never ever recreate it.

LOL! I know. And my Bro's a hairdresser who has done my hair since I was 11! (That's right, free haircuts!) He would kill me if I brought him a picture! All those pics were celebrities too - we're talking just styled by a pro.

I make rash decisions on my hair at least once a year. I cry. My husband thinks I'm crazy. My girls plead for me to fix it so I look like mommy again. I'm sticking with my ponytails and maybe every once in a while I'll throw in a braid ;-)

I wish I could offer advice, but I have had the same haircut since I was thirteen. I always think I'm going to do something different and bold and daring. But nope...same ol' same old for me.

Oh I always love getting drastic haircuts when I'm in a rut like that. And then I hate them and it takes forever for them to grow back. But then when my hair is long is it always in a ponytail and I am not a girl who works out. Sigh. I can't wait to see pics of what you decide!
