Hair Help

Heeeey it’s the last day of February, awesome, and it’s going to be 73 degrees today.  Apparently tornado warnings are also accompanying the warm temperatures, so it’s looking like an interesting day.  Did you miss my weekend posts?  I mostly talked a lot about shopping, but they’re still fun to catch up on.

Last night I made 5 lbs of the best mashed potatoes ever and considered that my cardio and weight training for the day.  Seriously, have you ever stood over a hot stove mashing and stirring 5 lbs of potatoes?  That’s hard work!  I also made my favorite comfort food meal ever, Shepherds Pie, and fed it to the roommates.  They were grateful to have dinner prepared for them, and I was just happy to have something to do.  Then I watched the Oscars.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to go in to what I thought of so and so’s dress, and who won what award, I’m pretty sure there are tons of other bloggers out there today doing that.  Go read their recaps, I just don’t care enough.  What I will say, is that Twitter makes watching award shows so much more fun.  First the Grammy’s now the Oscars, it’s fun to see everyone’s different opinions as the event happens.  Plus you can play drinking games with people!

So my trip is officially next week now, and you can rest assured that I will be obsessively checking the forecast for the next 10 days.  I can only see up until Wednesday at the moment, but Milwaukee’s weather is a high of 30 and snow showers and Chicago’s is a high of 37 with snow showers.  I have a feeling I’ll be packing some winter gear.  Unless a freak heat wave rolls in on Thursday for the weekend.  I really don’t care either way, just as long as there isn’t a blizzard and my flights aren’t delayed or cancelled.

I’m also getting my hair done next week, and I’m at the point where it’s frustrating me and chopping it off sounds very tempting.  I know I’ll regret that the next day if I do it though, but it’s just so, long.  I also can’t figure out what to do about color.  The box dye I used has pretty much faded, and I’m thinking about maybe just getting some auburn low lights with blonde highlights thrown in?  Here’s a picture I took yesterday, thoughts?

I’ll probably spend much of the next week looking for pictures of hair cuts and color I like.  Should make me pretty productive at work.  Alright, try to enjoy your Monday.

  1. I think I may have been the only person who liked Jen Aniston’s new haircut and was tempted to do it after my friend’s wedding in June. But when Mon said it made JAniston look older, I quickly decided against it… :p

    However, last time I got a trim, I got 2 inches taken off and sort of feel like a brand new woman. I would suggest that? It’s just enough to make a difference to you, but it’s not crazy enough to freak out over if you don’t particularly like it…

  2. Awards shows are SO much more fun with twitter! 🙂

    I need to cut my hair too, I was seriously considering chopping it off because I refuse to style it. I like your color as it is, but the highlights and low lights sound really pretty.

  3. I would definitely go wit auburn highlights, but not the blonde. Cut a little off but not too much and get a bunch of layers put in to lighten it up a little.

    I just cut my hair a few weeks ago and hated it. Instant regret. Boo 😦

  4. I suck at hair. I’ve never colored it and pretty much always have the same cut. So lame. Can’t wait to see what you decide on.

  5. I gave up on the Oscars at about 9pm. So painfully boring and awkward to watch!

    Resist the urge to chop it off if you’re not 100%; if you are then go for it! (I do this every few years, too…starting to get the itch).

  6. I think yours looks great long! If you want something different just take off 3-4 inches and add in more layers. or maybe add in some chunky highlights? Maybe it’s color that will be more fun/a change!

    • Yeah I’ll probably add some layers and angles in front. The problem with layering too much, is my hair is really thin, so it looks kind of scraggly at the ends.

  7. I actually love your hair the way it is! If you really want to, you could angle a little more in the front with some long bangs or something. As far as the weather.. I feel you.. I want it to just stay warm!
