Bondi!


Yeah, another repeat from HG, but at least these pics weren't included! They have nothing to do with the story, but there isn't a pic to go with the story, and there really isn't much of a story behind the pics other than: we went to the beach for a nice family outing last Saturday. It was great. It was fun, sunny, and beautiful. It was amazing to be at a World Class, World famous beach it really was absolutely gorgeous! We went to lunch after. It was pizza. It was, myuh... just okay. The end.

So here's the repeat story: I chopped my hair off! Two long hard years of hard work growing it out wasted! {I started from about Sharon Stone length, so it wasn't like it had grown that long, but the longest it's been for me in at least 10 years, if not longer!} I am not sure if I made the right decision, but I refuse to cry! Ben is out of town, so no one has really seen it besides about 5 neighbors and friends and I am left alone with my own opinions on the matter.

The lady I got it cut from is a lady I had cut my hair once before. I can't be sure, but I think she may have sabotaged my hair on purpose, which maybe you will find amusing, I kind of do! Since my last visit, my poor stylist has had a wicked flare-up of psoriasis on her scalp. It is dry and she said she is loosing MAJOR chunks of hair, {I know, not appetizing}. She can't style it at all, the blow dryer and flat-iron dry it out even more and make the problem even worse. So then she has to continue on with her job of making other people's hair look fabulous, and she is miserable doing it, that much she confessed. I agree, it would be difficult to want to make people look great when you can't style your own, poor Jo!

I brought in a picture of this girl I had seen on TV and then googled to get the image. Her hair is one of the most adorable things I have ever seen. But the stylist refused to comply give me this hair cut, and instead cut the top as pictured, but left the bottom long. She took forever, or I would have pressed her to fix it. Not only that as time {2 hours!} went on I could tell this cut was above her skill-level anyway, and I can probably just fix it myself once the top grows back. I feel bad for her, even if she did sabotage my cut. That would be so difficult!

Anyway, I am not convinced I am at an age for a 'cute' hair-cut anymore. I styled it, and I think I can cover most of the major flaws and perhaps I will do some fixing and reshaping too, but so far it does look 'cute' -but I'm not sure it's me. I will get a pic up soon. For now I give you -Bondi!

I was actually feeling bad that you were in winter and picturing us all in our shorts and slip n slides fun but now I don't feel bad anymore since you are still in shorts too! That beach looks gorgeous. I want pictures of the new haircut!

Yea, I am with Heather where is the pic of the awful hair cut...your hair always looks great, but I feel your pain with the horrible cuts. I have spent years fixing bad doos. I dreamed last night that I had an amazing hair cut. I flicked my head and every hair just feel into place in slow motion, I have no idea why I was dreaming about this, but it makes me laugh to think of it now. Hope the repair job goes well and the beach and its guests are beautiful...

Natalie - these pictures are beautiful! My very favorite is the last one of Ben spinning Laine - it belongs in a frame somewhere. I love it!

I hate bad haircuts, they never turn out like the magazine picture shows! Love the beach pictures, you have such a darling family and I have a hard time believing that your hair isn't good on you!! You look good no matter what!

Kate Gildea said...

You guys look so cute, as usual. Can you get a picture of that haircut up ASAP please? Thank you.

I can't wait to see a picture of the haircut. I think you could pull off anything so I'm not worried!

These are beautiful pics, ahhhh....to be at the beach. I can't wait to see the haircut! You are one lucky duck because you can pull off short hair better than most anyone I know (it's because your face is beautiful and you have the incredible personality to go with it).

Krystal said...

Hi. I don't know you, but I enjoy reading your blog-both of them actually. I just made some pizza from your Hot Garlic page-and it was soooo good! anyway, I'm sorry you had a bad haircut! That seriously sucks! I do hair and I wish I could fix it for you! You need to post some pictures of your hair! Anyway, I just thought I would say hi!
