hairgate two ohhhh nine

I've gotten several requests for a formal Hairgate 2009 update. As I previously wrote - I did get a refund but I spent about 40 dollars on headbands and hair products - so I just about broke even. I am still planning on writing a scathing Yelp.com review because, well SADS deserves it.

I still don't LOVE the haircut, but the good news is that I've put on my big girl pants and have stopped crying about it. It could have been much worse -- although, it was pretty damn awful straight. Last night I went out to a party and I knew that Sara would give me her brutally honest opinion. It's why I love the girl, she's a (in her own words) blunt bitch. I showed up and she gave me, more or less, her seal of approval.

So, the final verdict? I'm going to rock it. Oh, and I went out and bought myself a Keurig. Yes, I am buying my own affections. Do you have a problem with it? Because I sure as hell don't.

Oh, and here are a couple of pictures, and this time I'm not sobbing and/or looking as though I'm about to light someone on fire! Success! Oh, and if it looks a bit crazy and lopsided it's because I took the pictures right after I woke up. So, what do you think? Improvement or should I just hide under a hat until it grows out?

it looks like a complete different hair cut when it's curly, it looks great!! Getting rid of all the length really gives you big, bouncy curls - adorable!

Verdict: CUTE AS A FREIGHT TRAIN. Only in the sense where "as a freight train" can be used as a general ass-kicking intensifier, with no literal freight-train comparison being made.

It looks great curly, but I'm with you, when it was short it was definitely soccer momish. It wasn't a bad cut, just made you look older. And when it's not what you want, grr, I hate that! But I agree with everyone, the curls are adorable!

date girl - i totally felt like i should be behind the wheel of a mini-van with it straight, but i'm starting to actually like it curly! :)
