Don’t Yank My Hair!

My haircut this week was just in time for another transition: a new job! I’m excited to get back into childcare as a nanny for a local family with two young children. As it turns out, one is an infant, and will soon be in the grabby phase. You know, when anything within reach goes directly in the baby’s mouth? My long hair used to get wrapped around tiny fingers and yanked right off my head in clumps. OUCH! So, my stylish new look also comes with the bonus that there’s less to pull.

My hair was pretty long before we started.

Okay, so I blinked. But you can still see how happy I am as the stylist shows me different ways to work my new look.

It’s layered in the back as well as the front.newdo4

I’m looking forward to playing with my new ‘do. Mom even bought me some mousse, a curling iron, and something called pomade. She has three boys, one of whom I married, so it’s fun when we do girly things together.

My next post will include updates on my handwork projects. Stay tuned!

Time For a New ‘Do

I’ve been wearing my hair in a ponytail almost exclusively for over a year. What’s the use in having long hair if you can’t be bothered to take care of it? I’ll let it down with a brush and blowdry on special occasions, but most of the time it’s just easier to tie it up. Here’s what it looked like at my sister’s baby shower (she’s due any day now!). I’m the one without a tiara.

As you can tell from my recent posts, I’m in transition. New city, staying in a motel, job-hunting, all that. I’ve decided that it’s time for a new look. Something to pep me up and help me be more confident in my appearance and hopefully that confidence will trickle down to other areas as well. So here’s what I’m thinking. Something dramatically different like this:

I’ll post a photograph of myself post-cut. Haven’t done it yet, but this is the plan.

What things do you do to increase your confidence? Eating fish reminds me of my honeymoon and makes me feel special. I’ve also found that wearing dangling earrings makes me stand a bit taller.
