My God I've Got a Lot of Hair

Originally uploaded by Temmerling.
Ok. I did it. I called my hair bitch Saturday morning and claimed it was an emergency (it was -- family pictures are today and he doesn't work on Sunday) and he fit me in. When I showed him the pictures I liked he laughed and said "Honey, that isn't you. You have a lot more hair than she does. And,d well, you won't do the work to make what you have look like that" But he promised me that he'd do something that looked good and wasn't too wild. And then he cut me bangs. Um, I haven't had bangs for 6 years. I was in shock for quite a while. Maybe it was good that he didn't go too radical. As it was I stumbled out of the salon. I'm still not sure what I think.
After 2
There was so much hair on the floor after he was done. I think I hyperventilated a bit. I'm not sure if it was from all the hair on the floor, or from all the hair missing from my head. Or, maybe, it was because of the bangs. I know that when I went home Kristin was not gushing with the praise. She just kept saying, "you have bangs! You have bangs! Maybe you should clip those back or something." So I did. Which do you think looks better?
After without bangs
Now that it's been a few days, I'm convinced that this haircut looks much better than what I had before. And even Kristin (now that she's recovered from the shock of bangs) thinks it looks attractive. But still, don't you think it looks a little more "Mid-30's Soccer Mom" than "Hot-to-Trot Dyke Who Would Devastate the Dating Scene If She Weren't So Deeply In Love With Her Equally Hot Partner-- Damn Them for Being Monogamous."?
Are you taking my picture right now?

My dear, it looks so cute & sassy! Bangs up for feistiness, bangs down for seriousness. I bet your head feels so light now! (And for the record, no pinheadedness in sight!)

Ooohhh...I love it both ways! It's awesome!

I really like it! Um, I think I like it a wee bit better with the bangs down, but it looks great both ways. And it looks like it will grow out gracefully, so you won't have to rush back to get it fixed every time it grows half an inch (I know people with that kind of high-maintenance haircut and it just seems like a big hairdresser conspiracy to me).

Very cute!

dang- I tried to leave you a wolf whistle all day (grumble, grumble at blogger issues...)
I love LOVE the new cut! It looks very hip & sassy. I think the bangs up is nice for every day - especially in the summer! But the bangs down somehow looks more elegant & special- maybe b/c it is such a different look for you.
bottom line: you look Ace!

I like it a lot better than the before. And I'm a fan of the clip for a little edge. :-) Congrats on the new 'do!

HOT HOT HOT! I LOVE it! I am so happy for you. And I agree that both bangs up and bangs down are awesome for different needs. It is not soccer mom. It is sassy and hot. And appropriate and cute. And hot-to-trot. LOVE. IT.

What package are you sending, silly? You are too cute!

Finally I can whisper! like I said on flickr, your hair looks great with or without the bangs and you look younger, more than a soccer mom you look like a hot momma! hehehehe

I love it! It looks fantastic. And versatility is good - having the bangs/no bangs option is great. The piecey bangs are very fun, but the pulled back look is elegant. It can take time to get used to a new 'do, but I bet you'll end up loving it. Enjoy!

I love love love love it!!!! I just got my hair colored and cut yesterday and had I seen your pics before i went, I might have been a copy-cat! Sassy and sexy smart--Bravo!

I love it!! I might even be inspiring me now to get my hairs cut too.

I don't think it looks soccer mum. I think with your fringe clipped to the side you look like a saucy femme who is a little bit bookish, but wild once you get those glasses off. How's that analogy working for you?

exactly and completely what mermaidgrrrl said! woooeeeee!

IMO, the old cut was more soccer mommish.

Love the cut. Especially love the way the bangs combined with the shorter length frame your face, lifting it up, showing off your beautiful eyes. Hair Bitch knows his client and he knows his craft. Great do!
