We've all been there. Stuck in the drone of mommyhood to one day look in the mirror and shriek in horror at what you've let yourself become.
You now resemble more of a fuzzy beast. A shell of your former, much better groomed self.
Well today I had that moment and decided to take charge.
Don't turn away in horror. You must see the truth. This is a mama who needs a hair cut BADLY. It was once a stylish chin length angled bob. It has morphed into messy and awkwardly cut grown out hot mess. Granted this is straight out of bed hair and no makeup, it simply WON'T do.
And, if you zoom in closer you will notice not two (but not for long), what were once nicely trimmed eyebrows on my forehead now resemble fuzzy caterpillars slowly growing their way across my face.
OH THE CARNAGE! Wow, put on some makeup lady! And get those things back under control!
So, I took matters in my own hands. And much to the dismay of hairstylists around the world I got a little crazy.
I DYED MY HAIR.
Yep. Plain 'ole box dye. I'm brave and have done it probably 50 times in my life so I wasn't afraid. I've had it turn out wrong maybe once.
But then it got even more wild.
I CUT MY HAIR.
Something I've also done probably a dozen times in my life. I hate paying upwards of $100 for a cut/color. Plus they never really get what I'm asking them to do. AND have no idea how to straighten hair without it looking poofy. Didn't they go to hair school?? They try to blow dry my hair-which is really thick and they realize halfway through it's going to take forever. So they hurry through it and through the straightening. Ugh!
I have curly hair so if I mess up and it's not perfect, I can just wear it messy and nobody will ever be able to tell. But alas, I didn't mess up.
Ta daaaaaaa!!! Granted, the after picture I actually put a little make up on. But people always do that for the after picture. So whatev.
And if you look closely, I whipped those eyebrows back into submission.
Here is a closer comparison for all you before and after people.
