New Hairdo!

I have been a bum about updating my blog to my biggest changes, but seeing as I have rendered myself useless [bleach in my hair], I may as well blog about  it. Before you start getting worried, I’m just talking about changing my hair.

I recently cut most of my hair off. I mean for realz, most of my hair is gone-zo, but I love it. Let’s review some photo history:
hairlong1Check out the hair I used to have. I was pretty much at mermaid length hair.
Hair long2The trouble was with hair this long, if I washed it in the morning and put it up it would be wet all day. Things that don’t do well in winter. I loved my long hair, but have been planning a change for a long time now. Yes, I will likely grow out my hair again someday.

hair braids Even though my hair had been bleached, I decided to try and donate it to a wig making charity. The requirements page listed that they would be able to sell the hair for profits (to make more wigs) if they couldn’t use my hair. So my hair stylist braided it into four sections and started whacking off hair!hair in handPretty soon I was left with four braids in hand and a really awkward bob. I was excited to keep moving on from this weird hair length. trimming the bobShe pinned up bits of my hair and cut sections at a time. Our goal was to have short sides, very short back, bangs and enough hair on top to spike up and play with. M cut on cut on my hair for almost two hours!! I am very high maintenance I think.
hair on floorThis is just a little bit of the hair that was ultimately cut off. Keep in mind it doesn’t include the heavy braids nor the final 30 minutes of trimming and fudging to make it perfect.

This was the end result! It is very very different from my usual loooong hair and no bangs. And yes, I am still getting used to my bangs.

What do you think of my epic transformation?

Day 357: Shellac Update

Okay, I know feet are weird shaped, but I promised to keep you up to date on my shallac toe nail polish.

One of my toenails lost the paint. Oddly enough it was all in one piece. My girl friend said that sometimes if the color was painted to the cuticle it can come off more easily as the toe nails grow.

I have some purple nail polish that I will paint on my nails as they peel off. I think this will make some cute toes with different shades of purple.

Day 342: Shellac Toes

Like I said I got “my nails did” the other day. The shellac is supposed to last a super long time without chipping. They guarantee it for 14 days after which your toenails are growing out, but it still wont chip.

I felt a little silly knowing I will headed overseas on a big hike, yet this will be a true test of how it withstands lots of rough treatment.
The lady doing our nails said most people get it before going to the beach so their toes look great the whole time.

I will make sure to take a picture and date it if I get any chips in the polish. For anyone not salon savvy, like me, the light wasn’t hot or even as I expected and the polish feels a bit thicker than regular polish.
