Abra-Cadabra!

This morning was Beauty Shop Day! I go about every 4-6 months depending on my bank account, how much time I have on my hands, and how really bad my roots are. #1. It's expensive (my husband always reminds me I'm in the wrong business when he reviews the checks and sees the amount that was written to my "Hair Magician") #2. It takes a while and #3. SEE!! My roots were way bad!

I am not really sure what my natural hue is, as I have been an ongoing hair coloring project since the early 80's! My darling Aunt started pulling those tiny hairs through that plastic cap with her fine needle when I was in the 7th grade! Like I said, this project has been O-N-G-O-I-N-G for Y-E-A-R-S.

But today, I not only had the inkling to get these roots shaped up, but also to get a new Summer Do. I walk-in talking about wanting extensions with the owner and leave...well..... I'll show that in a minute.

As I'm processing under the dryer I usually fumble through a Hair Magazine, which is always dangerous for me, because I usually find a much envied cute style on Heidi Klum or Carrie Underwood. Then I somehow believe I would magically become them if I only had their luscious coiffure. Sure, my "Hair Magician" can TRY to get my hair to look sorta like theirs, but like I mentioned she is only a "HAIR MAGICIAN", not a face magician or a cellulite, skinny body MAGICIAN! So I go away with a great haircut, but disappointed in my inability to sing like Carrie or strut the catwalk for Victoria's Secret without jiggling!


Today's magazine was quite entertaining and I figured I would just be skimming the pages and still be leaving with only my lighter, usual, mom in her late 30's boring Do.......as I thumbed through.....

I found this one.....errrrr?? Nope.








Uhh....no, thanks, no need for a "bump-it" today.









Then there was this Saurday Night Live-looking delight....









and I already look like this in the mornings! (No thank you Ms. Kate Gosselin!)










And then I flipped over to this....Good grief, wonder what sleazy salon this is..&..is he really doing her hair or what??!! (I totally swear this was a Hair Style Magazine!)










Finally, I got to the end of this book of crazy hair and found one I really really liked...but dang! everyone around me, by this time, had started to stare at me shooting pictures of this magazine, so before I could get a shot of "THE STYLE", I quietly tucked higher up into my dryer and put my phone/camera away........so you'll just have to trust me...it sorta looks like the picture, after all, she is my "HAIR MAGICIAN"!

Introducing my new Summer Do!
Ms. Heidi Klum eat your little pregnant-again heart out!

Love it! I am thinking about cutting my short and lighten it up.
Don't know, don't know. But you have inspired me to do a change. ;)
