Spontaneous is good!

See the lady with the broken hand on the bench in the mall. See the lady waiting for hubby to come out for lunch. See the lady wondering what is taking hubby? See the lady sad for her 38th bad hair day in a row. Sad, sad lady. See the lady notice the department store ahead advertising a salon sale? Oooo, see the lady perk up. See the lady notice that it's for almost 1/2 price for foil high lights. See the lady drool. See the lady check the cash in her purse. See the lady throw all caution to the wind and go see unknown hairstylist. See the lady say, "Do it now, right now, please". See the result:

Oh Wait. Before you get to look you must bear in mind a few things. First of all, I hate getting my picture taken! Second, these were taken by me as I tried to get the shot without looking sideways into the camera, or up into the camera, or, well, you get it. Third, I finally decided to try the "in your face method" of taking your own picture that my children are so fond of. (Just thank your lucky stars you didn't get the nostril shots that for some reason my chilren delight in). Fourth, Did I mention I hate getting my picture taken. Especially when who knows who is going to be looking at it. How do teenagers do this with all their facebook, etc. stuff. Sheesh.
Okay, can I have stalled enough?

Nice shot of the camera don't you think? My Christmas gift from hubby. What a great guy!


The arm's length shot. A bit better lighting.

She updated my cut a bit, too. Made it look messy on purpose. Now there is a novel thought if you ever have to go one handed for any length of time. Get an "I'm messy on purpose" 'do. I'm loving the highlights although it is quite a bit blonder than I'm used to being. I love the cut too although it did go shorter which hubby was a bit sad about. But it's fun and new. I don't know how often I'll do the wings sticking out though. It's a bit more work, but it 's fun to have an option.

So there is my annual spur of the moment, jump off a cliff, and do something spontaneous without thinking it through moment. Now I'll crawl back into my little anonymous spot.

I love it and love the highlights! A good sassy look...I think "messy on purpose" is fun. And how fun to be spontaneous!

Org Junkie said...

Well look at you, you sassy thing!! It looks wonderful, I love it. It looks very trendy and fun. Now I'm inspired to get mine done. Oh how I'd love me some blonde highlights, but I don't think I'd ever find a 50% off sale here where I live though but I'm definitely going to start saving my pennies :)

Thanks for sharing the pictures with us. You are too sweet!

OH MY GOODNESS SUSANNE!!!! LOOK how BEAUTIFUL you are!

You know what is funny is that even though you had that cute little lady on your blog for so long, I never pictured you as a blonde!

Gorgeous! and look at those eyes!!

PastorMac's Ann said...

Looks so cute!! Glad you decided to be spontaneous.

Susanne said...

Love the hair-cut!
Mine is naturally curly, so I know what you mean when you say, "messy on purpose"! I just recently got mine layered, which means, a little gel and a little scrunching, and I am OUT THE DOOR with my wild and messy "do"!
Have a great week!

Susie said...

You look absolutely beautiful! I love the color and the cut. I am in desperate need of a hair makeover, but have no clue what to do. Your look is so trendy and fun. I wish I could go shorter than my shoulders, but the hubby likes it longer.

GiBee said...

I love both the cut and the color! So cute and trendy!

Jenileigh said...

I love it! It looks great!

Islandsparrow said...

ah - the "carefully tousled" look - I'm always trying to achieve it but mine tends to just look tousled...

you, on the other hand, have it mastered :)

Our Home Schooler and Jen said...

I dont think Ive ever seen what you look like
your beautiful
Jen

Barb said...

I love your new do, Susanne. It's adorable on you. And my first thought was, hey! Look at her holding that camera with her broken hand! Yay!

(My word, you have the most amazing eyes!)

Doris said...

Suzanne! NO! You shoulda warned me and I would never have looked at your pic. I want you to look like your caricature. THAT'S Suzzane, to me. LOL You're so cute, great new do!

Jenny in Ca said...

oh, I really like the new 'do'! I like the little wings sticking out too, kind of hip.

I think you had a good idea.
