By Popular Demand — The Hair Picture

As requested, I have some pictures of my hair to post.  I took another fifty pictures of myself this morning after I washed and styled my new hair.  It’s definitely a good cut, and it’s pretty much what I asked for.  So I think I just found a new hairdresser.  YAY!

I’m just not entirely sure how to style it to suit my fancy.  You know how it is, it takes a few days. 

I’m annoyed because I can’t seem to find any online pictures like the ones I’m trying to emulate.  I wanted to show you what I was going for.

At any rate, here is the self-portrait I took this morning.

The picture really doesn’t show the layers much at all.  And now that I’ve been running around for a few hours and it’s had time to settle a bit, the right side (well, it’s on your left, looking at this picture) is developing a mind of its own.  It wants to flip out. 

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m kind of over the flipped-out look.  I did that for a few years with a style almost identical to this one.  See?

I thought the flip was sort of on the outbound style train.  Is it?  Because my hair.  It’s determined to flip.  And as with most things, it will be a lot easier if I choose to work with it rather than against it.

Ah, the trials of a suburban housewife. 

But you know, hair is a woman’s crowing glory, after all.  In fact, I dare say that there are few pursuits more noble than the quest for good hair.  (Although for some reason, I don’t think this is what the apostle Paul had in mind with his crowing glory comment.)

Okay, look, I just took more pictures.  (Yes, one might think I have way too much time on my hands.  But the house is clean, the baby is napping, and the preschooler is playing at a friend’s house.  So I guess I have some time to squander.)

Okay, from the side:

Now the delinquent side:

And front-on:

Okay, after looking at these pictures, this hairstyle clearly needs some work.  I think I need to try some different styling techniques.  But I promise not to inundate you with another series of pictures tomorrow.
