In passing, I mentioned that I was cutting off all my hair. I stuck by my vow and last Saturday the deed was done. Since Monday was the first public day of showing it off, which was the day I was shit-canned, I had started to wonder if I had Samson-ized myself. Ridiculous, I know, but hey, how many of you wore your lucky socks/underwear/charm/etc. to your RE’s? Same, but different.

So here we have me in the weeks before:



And now (I’m the one on the right…just in case you were wondering):


Ā (I really should see a specialist about the weird facial tics I’ve been having, don’t you think?)

Actually, here’s a better shot:

I have to say, the haircut makes me feel all kinds of sassafras. I’m digging it. Except in the morning since sleeping on a head full of hair paste makes me look a bit Kramer in the morning. It ain’t purty, let me tell you.

  1. I just find it hard to believe that it’s the same person in both picture no 2 and pic no 3. there’s something about that facial tic…

    I love the short haircut!

  2. Me likey!!

    But you do know that I’m biased on account of I did something very similar :), Two kids = no hair. Easy math!



  3. i love the new ‘do. love love love it. you look all kinds of sassy — which you obviously are anyway, but the look just emphasizes.
    think of it not as de-samsonizing yourself, but maybe as coming into yourself. a too-good-for-them kinda self. a new self to head to new places. as soon as the kids are well.

  4. Cute, cute, cute! Mine was that short this summer, now I’m growing it out a little and somehow got stuck in a Rick Springfield-from-the-80s bi-level phase…

    Hope Zgirl is feeling better!

  5. lmao @ the “fat” and “chin” comments!! I’m SOOO in that boat, but I love having short hair anyway!!

    However, in looking at YOU with your fab short hair and AWESOME color, I will probably grow it out enough to look like “cousin it” and hide my face!!

    Looking super fab!!

  6. I LOVE it. *sigh* I miss having short hair… but I can’t carry it off with multiple chins. Maybe if I can slim the number down to one or two I can manage a short ‘do again.

    You look FABULOUS, darlin’.


  7. You stole my plan woman! I was just thinking the other day that I haven’t had my hair super short in a long time and should go get it chopped off.

    Now I will have to come up with something different, Damn you DD. šŸ˜‰

    It looks great. Is it easy to fix? If you want to can you just add more paste in the morning without doing a full blown wash? Just trying to save time for myself in the am now that the girl has decided she should get up with me at 5:00 am instead of sleeping in until 6:15 like before. šŸ˜‰

    Hope the family is feeling better and really, facial tic? I thought that was normal. Kidding! I have that problem too, hence little to no pictures of me, if I can help it.

  8. Oh. My. Gawd, Girlfrieeennnndz, you look gawhjeeeeus. ::Z-snap::

    I’m in desperate need of a haircut. I won’t go that short, but maybe the length in your “before” shot.

  9. I love the hair! I have to say that short hair always seems more convenient to me, and then—I get it and I get that morning hair issue you mention.

    No biggie if i can always get a shower though!

  10. I did that once. Came home and husband said he really didn’t like short hair on “heavy women”. I should have killed him on the spot.

    Obviously you don’t have the heavy problem, cuz it looks really sassy and cute on you šŸ™‚

  11. You know, they say it takes a strong, beautiful face to be able to pull off short locks — I’m thinkin’ you nailed it.

You can say it here.
