Help - I Look Like a Boy

We have all done it, I know. So, I'm looking for some support here. And why I'm choosing to further humiliate myself by showing this picture, I don't know....but here goes my story...

My hair had gotten so past needing a trim that I had really gotten angry with it and was ready for it to be chopped. That's not a good scenario because my montra at the hair salon has always been, "it's just hair, it'll grow back". Well, let me tell you - mine better grow back quick!

I was relatively happy with my style that I had before, but it had just gotten soooo long and heavy that I wanted some weight taken off. I also thought - it's fall, a new season, I could use something a little new. So,... I asked her to do a little something different. Well, I now have bangs, and I've lost my little swinging sides - which, granted, I did "OK" before the scissors came after me. That was supposed to be the "weighty" part.

What made it worse, is that she "styled" it. Now, I don't know about you - but for me, that has never panned out.

I left looking like a poof head with wings under my ears. I took the picture from the side because I think it actually looks a little better than straight on. Guess I"ll walk around with my head turned all day. Picture something like the do's from the 50's - big and poofy on top with the flips on the bottom. I did the little "flip" hair do about 7 years ago - it was cute then, but please, oh please, I don't want to see it again. I do really like my hair stylist as a person, so I don't want to hurt her feelings and I've been "with" her longer than any other hair person-

I suppose that's why I said "Woah! Wow! umm,....Sassy!" - what stupid comment!!! Why couldn't I just say - "put down with the hair dryer and round brush before I fling it out the window"?

First thing I did when I got home was put my boy down for a nap and take a shower and pray that the extra $10 I spent for her to "style" it would wash down the drain. It did....and I now I look like a boy. O man, what have I done?!!!'

I really do look like a boy. I may have to get into wearing scarves on my head. Maybe some cute clips would help it look more feminine. I guess it can be hard to have short hair and still have it look soft and, well, feminine. My hubby says it doesn't look all that bad. I know he's trying to make me feel better, but the word "Yentl" has come up in conversation several times.

So, then we meet my hubby for lunch. He had originally suggested meeting at Costco for $1.50 hotdog/drink combos. (Way to go honey - that's the way to stretch a dollar!). My boy was all for "hot doggies" with daddy. Well, during my hairchop, he called and convinced me to meet him at an overpriced (but, Oh sooo delicious) greasy spoon for hamburgers. I caved. Paid $2.25 for my son's hotdoggie from which he ate one mouse bite. Of course, I ate every bit of my greasy, yummy cheeseburger and fries while lamenting over my hair. Total lunch cost around $20, when we could've eaten at Costco for $3 total!

I'd better just stay home the rest of the week so I don't spend any more "stupid" money. Gotta get to sewing anyways.........

If it makes you feel any better. I got bangs last week and I mean a LOT of BANGS! I kept trying to stretch them out. Get a cute hat or a big wide headband. That might help. Sorry for your dilema. :(

Oh girl, you are sooo beautiful that all anyone will notice is the gorgeous green eyes, bright smile and olive complexion! No worries- it is just hair, it will grow back!

Don't forget you make hats for people everyday, its starting to get cooler so maybe you wont stand out to much with a hat on.

Well, you don't look like Yentl, that's for sure. If you feel boyish, just compensate with a skirt or a nice thin headband, nail polish, something that makes you feel feminine.
There must be a name for that scenario where we all feel like we can't be honest with a hairdresser, I mean, they can't all feel like they don't ever misjudge a cut.

Thanks for the words of encouragement - hah! Guess it's just forcing me to try something new - stirring things up every once in awhile is a good thing!

that is one funny story! We've all gotten a bad cut at one point...It took me a while to figure out why the cut that I picked out of the magazine didn't look good on me...oh yeah, I'm not a model :) Anyhoo, we will get you girly when you come over on Tuesday!
