Wanna See?

After almost an entire year of avoiding the hair salon, I went last night.  Yes, I did.  I got tons chopped off.  Hoping they can use it at Locks of Love. 


So I told the gal I want fun, I want easy, I want light and bouncy....but I want options.  I like to play.

Are ya ready???


























Ta da!



I got me some wicked cool highlights, lots of layers, and a lot of movement.....Can't believe the difference in how it feels on my head!  Gosh that sounds rather strange.  Here you can kinda see the highlights better.  This was just sooooo out of my box!


But I really like it.  I'm a pretty animated person, so I'm trying to add that element to my physical appearance.....kinda a foretaste of things to come in my decorating too.


I feel like a new woman!  Or at least like a woman with shorter hair. And highlights.  Yeah.  BTW, all these pics are from my other blog, hense the title in the corners.  And hey, I promise not to keep babbling on about all these changes.  I just love a great makeover whether it's a room, a piece of furniture or a person (or a person's head).


Onward to to house projects!  Totally feelin' it.

Way to go! I think you look 10 years younger, not that you looked older. You look refreshed and rejuvenated! Make the most of it!

Cindy, I'm not seeing your header or your sidebar pics. I'm seeing a 'bandwidth exceeded' by photobucket. Thought you might want to know.
Blessings,
Cindy

You look great. I read somewhere that 80% of the way a woman feels about her appearance is linked to her hair....so you love it and now you will feel good all around.

The highlights are fabulous and you look confident with it. Very nice!

Oh my goodness, you look so much younger. Lots of life and lightness and lift (lurve the alliteration?) Seriously, it looks fabulous. I am so happy for you.
I can only imagine how much I would have saved not going to the salon for a year, yikes, I go every 5 weeks!

Julie Johnson said...

You look fabulous! I love to get a new hair style. I wonder if that is how the couch feels when we give it new pillows.

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

I love it!!! You look fabulous with your new cut. I have been toying with the idea of cutting off my hair too, but I'm afraid it will make my face look fatter. Your new cut makes your face look fabulous. You do look younger. Love the highlights too. I'm lovin' your new style!

Claudia said...

Cindy, I love your hair. I can't believe how much you still have!

I used one of the soaps tonight that I ordered from you last month. I love it! My skin feels so soft and the scent is wonderful! Thanks so much.

Marianne@Songbird said...

Hi Cindy, Loving your new locks. I recently cut a lot off of mine too, and I am loving it too.
I am sure you have noticed already, but your photobucket account seems to have reached its limits. Your button is no longer visible on my blog.

Jayme, The Coop Keeper said...

I really like the highlights on you, and the shorter style. WOW girl, WOW, I can see a change on your face, you look 'lighter' and 'free'. Rock on.

Patti said...

Looks great! Doesn't "change" feel great? Now go buy something new to wear!

The Painted Home said...

Petite moi said...

This is such a nice surprise Cindy, you look really pretty (not that it was not the case before, haha, but a good change is nice from time to time).
Hugs, Erika

That's a great start! Now do something about your eyebrows!

::cottage instincts:: said...

Dear Anonymous,
I like my eyebrows as they are. They're bushy and random, though I will be adding eyebrow powder and this gel stuff to hold them in place. Thanks for the ding dong ditch. Were you trying to compliment me or make me feel like an idiot?

Anonymous said...

COMPLIMENT, and encourage the sprucing up you started with the cute haircut, although I can see how you could take it otherwise! Sorry!

::cottage instincts:: said...

Ah, got it. I guess I'm a bit sensitive stepping outta my box with all the 'newness' to my look.

Thanks for clarifying. Sorry for jumping to the wrong conclusion (slinking back to my kitchen and ignoring the blog for awhile...)

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Great summer hair-do!!

:) Becky

Jen T said...
