I got a hair.....CHOP.

So many things to do, too little time. Yesterday was a really bad hair day.... mostly because I did not sleep the night before, then woke up late....and did not have time to fix it. So last night I went to the salon and finally found a hairdresser that is not afraid to tackle my mop....

You see... Here is a secret of mine. When I was 16 I started to see signs of gray 23 it looked like I purposely highlighted my hair Gray { yep, people even asked me if I did} I always said I would not color it until the blessed day a sweet older lady is pushing her cart out of Walmart as I am pushing mine in and she is she passed she says with her glorious giggle..."you went gray early like me". Come on lady...I was 28. I am sure she remembers how it felt when she turned gray early. Or maybe that was just it...she was not thinking when she said it to me.

So after that I thought, you know, I need to live a little and I started coloring my hair....

If you have gray hair, you know...It is like horse hair. Like little wires with a mind of their own. It makes my hair very hard to manage. Not to mention the natural curl/ frizz/ whatever else my hair decides to give me when I wake up in the morning.

So what do you do....Embrace!

Hair appointment after hair appointment....good hair cut and bad hair red hair and my now dark golden brown...which by the way I color it myself out of a box. { I love the conditioner in the Loreal Preferance box dies. Just because I do not have 5 hours to sit in a salon....Is it really supposed to take that long?

So here are a few pics I took of ME. Today! My hair is shorter than I have had it in 10 years. I will need some time to get used to it. I just keep saying it will all grow out. But until then I am feeling a little sassy.

Oh man.... Look at those wrinkles around the eyes.... I must be getting old...Hahaha. The end of the month will be my 34th birthday. I have never felt old and when I turned 30 I stopped counting b-days. So hahahaha...wrinkles I laugh at you!

Have a great weekend. Hugs,Amy

    You look great DARLING!!!! LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. First, your hair is gorgeous!!! I can so relate -- I found my first gray hair on my 16th birthday. Talk about your sick, twisted birthday gifts. Um, stupid old lady...sorry, that made me a little mad for you. I haven't started dying mine yet. It might be soon far they've done a nice job of keeping themselves hidden, but I find new ones every few months. I just can't stand the idea of dying my hair. I really like my natural color. A lot. I don't know if I can replicate it, and that bums me out just a bit. But your color is gorgeous, so that gives me some hope! :)

  6. I love your hair Amy!!And yes I have some gray ones too...but it doesn't show that well in blonde mom had gray hair very early too, can't remember her without.
    Alex looks a lot like you Amy!

  7. cute, sassy do! I'm always really surprised when I see my wrinkles around my eyes in pictures but there is one thing I know for sure...

    wrinkles are much more beautiful than botox or plastic surgery~

  8. LOVE your new haircut, Amy!!!! And the color is gorgeous, it shines in the sunlight!!
    And you're looking into the sun, of course there are some wrinkles around your eyes!!! You're such a beautiful woman, don't care about a few wrinkles...


  9. what cute hair cut... it's adorable!!! Just perfect for the warmer weather on it's way...
    {{hugs}} Michelle

  10. Love your hair, you look HOT!!! I don't have any grey hair, but I do know about the bad haircuts My hair is a little curly so they ALWAYS cut it to short (hate that)!! Great color too!!!!

    Have a great week and enjoy your hair!!!
