Chop Chop!

It was time.  Mostly out of laziness, partly out of rather spending money on fabric, I haven't had a change in my do for a really long time.  The plan was to chop a whole bunch off, but that sweet talkin' gal with the sheers did this instead:
I still pass by a mirror and wonder who that is, I haven't had bangs for ages, and I haven't done my hair straight for probably a year or more.  Like I said, mostly laziness.
I brought with me a most delightful companion.  She sat there the whole time, devouring three fashion magazines, and had to show me every other page full of crazy hair-dos, colorful make-up, and fancy clothes.
Plus, she did her own hair.  What a cutie.  We don't spend much one-on-one time now that she's a school girl.
So we stopped to get her any frozen concoction her little freckled face desired.
She ate every last drop and kept looking at me with surprised eyes exclaiming, "I keep forgetting what you look like!"
I think that was my favorite part.
Still getting used to the bangs.  Mostly loving them.  Ryan even asked if I had my hair colored.  Nope.  Just chopped off a bunch of natural highlights I guess.
Sure glad I took along this little side kick.

  3. Yay! It looks gorgeous. I asked my MIL for money for Christmas to go toward getting my hair done. It's been over a year for me too. Babies and kids and life will do that to ya.

  5. Simple but chic. I just went back to bangs after 30 some years. I think it softens my 'maturing' face but seems more grown up at the same time.
    Up here in the cold snowy north though I do find that bangs and hats are not always a good combination.

  17. Ooh, I love the bangs! And the new length is really cute. Last night in desperation I trimmed my curly bangs. Today I'm after the rest of it. I can't wait. Thanks for the reminder that a haircut can make all the difference! :)

  19. looks fabulous! I gave myself bangs about a year ago, and I loved it. Made me feel very stylish, even though stylish is something I certainly am not.

  21. Love the new do! Fringe suits you.

  22. Love your new hair cut(!) and your excuses for not getting a hair cut sound a lot like mine. I'm totally due for one. :) Last night I dreamed I had bangs too. Love the picture of you two with your straightened hair blowing around.

  23. I love them! I think they make your eyes look brighter and more blue.

  24. I like your bangs. :o)
    Clover's photo with the magazin in front of her face or with the papercup and closed eyes... those could be postcards :o)

  25. Bangs look good on you! It's a whole new aesthetic--one that terrifies me. I can't even get over the cuteness of Azure and if I were to pick a Dill favorite, hypothetically, she's mine!

  26. Katy,

  28. I like the bangs! They are super cute on you. I tried them last year and looked like a 12 year old! ;)

  29. Wow, you look younger! Great look!

  30. looks great and azure is too precious!! i tried to chop my hair off after nohemi was born, and my wise stylist told me it would be too much work. bobby pins and headbands work for day 2 bangs. or shampoo JUST your bangs. that's my best tip! :)

  31. LOVE the new look! Bangs are very becoming on you :)

    What a nice side kick for the day-could you ask for anything better?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Beautiful both with and without the bangs! (but I think bangs are fun!) :-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Very beautiful! Not that you weren't before, but a change is always fun. And you so don't look like the mother of six! Your companion is just a darling!

  34. I love the bangs and the side-kick! I had a friend tell me recently that bangs are her botox.

  35. You look great with bangs! You look a lot like your mother with the bangs - and I do mean that as a big compliment! What a fun day.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ooops, I meant Azure, of course... sorry, I was too tired to focus (sometimes it's enough to write good enough English :) )

    I love the mother-daughter date part, I try to do that at least once a month with my older daughter.

  39. i love the bangs on you! bangs are fun every so often - so easy to grow out once you get tired of them, too. i think you look like a young jane seymour (who i think is gorgeous!). :)

  44. Katy! You look gorgeous! Va-va-voom. :)

    Azure is seriously adorable too. That is so cute that you had a fun mother daughter afternoon together. Taking my Reid to the salon with me is only because of necessity and requires a lot of candy bribes. Hopefully my girl will appreciate it more one day too. :)
