And then I got my hairs did

I have been toying with the idea of cutting my hair for quite some time.  I didn't know if I was ready to chop it all off, or if it was just a change that I was needing.  So naturally I did what any other self-respecting woman would do:  I scoured Pinterest.  I found all kinds of favs that made it onto my hair-dorable board:

The short:
I love it...but am I brave enough? Probably not.

Cute, short & full!

The long:


The bangs:
zoey bangs

Bangs bangs bangs!
Don't you love them all?  I had to go through and decide what my fine, thin hair could realistically handle.  I really loved the 2nd short hair above, but I know I could never achieve that kind of volume on a daily basis (or for any length of time)!  So that was out.

I definitely decided that I wanted to keep some length...which still leaves things pretty wide open when you're dealing with this:

This is why I never left my hair down.  Long, scraggly, boring. The end. (not really)

So I called a friend from church - the adorable Calista - and asked her if she had any openings before I left for Vegas on the 16th.  It wasn't looking good, but she said she'd give me a call when she got into work.  She called about 10 minutes later (8:45am) and said, "I forgot that my 9am is open today...can you make it?!"

Guys, I hadn't even showered yet - of course I told her I would be there!  I had to forgo the shower - this was serious business.

I walked into the adorable Beyond the Salon at 9:05

Calista went straight to work!  I showed her my pinterest board and she knew just what to do! 

This is Carissa, Calista's big sister - she also owns the salon.  You can tell good genes run in the family - beautiful, kind, lovely ladies!  We had a good time!

And the finished product:  

Bangs!!  I am all kinds of happy about this!  I've been reunited with my twelve-year-old self - she missed me. 

Mr. Charming likes it too!

And I can still rock the ponytail

I was able to style it myself the next day!  Hooray!

Thank you so much Calista & Beyond the Salon for saving my turkey bacon and making me feel beautiful!  I love the new do. 

My twelve-year-old self thanks you too!
