I wish I had a savings account...

with all the money that I've spent on hair color! Sometimes it was $60 every 6 weeks, sometimes it was the $7.00 box of color from Target and then the past year it was $80 every 6 weeks. Multiply all that by 20 years and that would be a nice chunk of change.

Anyway, the short cut is growing and it's also growing on me. It will be a few weeks before I can go back and get the last inch of color cut away. I can't wait!

Getting used to short hair.

I'm still getting used to short hair! I'll admit that it dries in less than 5 minutes! LOL I can barely use my flat iron to straighten a few stray pieces here and there. When I took the kids to swim practice the other day I was talking to another mom who commented on my new short cut. I told her that I was cutting the dye out so the gray could grow. She didn't know that I had gray hair! LOL She thought that I had highlights up top! LOL She told me that she is not brave enough to go gray, but admits that she colors every 2 to 4 weeks! Yikes, I thought my 6 weeks was bad. Anyway it certainly feels nice not to have to worry about planning hair appointments around roots growing in!

I've got the urge to cut!

Ack, I have a hair appointment on Thursday and it's supposed to be for a really good trim.
My stylist is pregnant and taking off the last few weeks of Sept and is supposed to come back to work in Nov. I really don't want to go to anyone else while she is out. I love her and she can make my hair look good, and that's not an easy feat! My hair is pretty wavy and very thick. I've been browsing all the hair style sites that I can find and even joked to my husband last night that a buzz cut might just be what I want! If I buzzed it then certainly most of the dye would be gone! LOL I'm chicken but half way tempted! I wouldn't have to worry about a cut while Ali was out on maternity leave. I would really have my hair and not dyed, bleached hair. I'm really contemplating this...
Stay tuned.
