New do

I was done being blonde. Oh, so done being blonde.

Also tired of being beholden to my flat iron as I have been for nearly five years now. Observe the natural texture of my hair, in this photo I did nothing but blow-dry. I used my paddle brush to control the crazier waves around my face but in the back I just pointed the blow drier at the hair and went crazy. This is not my favorite look, but it'll do. I'm thrilled to have a low maintenance option. I've been a long time without one.

The high maintenance option is still low maintenance compared with going over every tiny section with a flat-iron until it's uniformly smooth. The high maintenance option is hot rollers. Hot rolled mussy curls. I've been experimenting for the past few days since my haircut and I think I've just about worked out my preferred rolling method.

Three cheers for hair! Three cheers for having a good hair dresser! Three cheers for kicking the flat iron to the curb! (actually, I'm keeping it and will probably even use it occasionally)

I meant to say something today when I saw you, I thought in my head quite a few times about it just never got it out between primary songs. I really like it. Great color and how fun to be a bit lower maintenance.

I love it. Love it! I think the blonde was cute, but I am all for natural (ish) looking. Not to say that your blonde looked un-natural in anyway, because that is not what I mean.

Wow, I love how you can simply blow dry it and it looks like you've completely styled it! Mine after a blow dry looks like a frizzy rats nest. Very cute new 'do!

Darling! I'm sorry I missed its premire at church on Sunday. Makes me ache to give my flat iron a break.
