Frumpy 27 Year Old

Let's start out by me saying I have almost zero hair-styling skills. I've always worn fairly simple hairstyles that only required the original use of a Chi flat iron & nothing more. I have extremely fine & thin hair so anything that requires much work is a waste of time since by the end of the day whatever style I thought I had created has given way to a limp, weighed down mess.

Today was hair-cut day and I don't think I'm alone in saying that "I love hair day!" Whether I'm getting a whole new look, new color, or just a quick trim--I love sitting in the chair and having someone else make me beautiful! I had originally planned on getting just a quick trim & letting it grow so I could have a small chance at pulling it up in a ponytail, but in the past week or so it seems that my hair has been out of control. And yesterday, I'd had it. I told one of my co-workers that I looked like a frumpy 27 year old.

So...today I went to the salon and when my stylist asked if we were just trimming I practically screamed NO! I told her it had to go and I needed to stop looking so frumpy! And I definitely don't look frumpy anymore. I'm 27 with no kids & she said that maybe I was just looking a little bit more like a PTA mom than I wanted. Not that there's anything wrong with a PTA mom, it's just not a look I want right now. She stacked it up all nice and pretty in the back, gave me a few bangs & cut A LOT of length off. I LOVE IT! We'll see tomorrow if I'm able to style it and make it look good but for now I don't care.

Oh and for all of you hoping for a picture, you'll just have to wait. I attempted a photo at work but my oily skin & self-portraits don't go well together. I'm sure I'll have at least one photo from the weekend coming up that will show you my new do!

~Also, I've been a terrible blogger recently. I haven't had time to read hardly any of your posts so I'm working on getting caught up!
