• Tuesday Weigh-in: 181.6 •
But I don’t really want to talk about my weight or the program. I want to talk about my hair. My friend, Cookie, had a great idea today – I should upload a picture of myself and try on different hairstyles. Brilliant! So I’ve been doing that pretty much all day. All. Day. One of the sites was better with the makeup than the other, but I couldn’t get it to reliably save the pictures. Anyway, I’m ready to put it up for a poll now.
But first I want to show you this picture:
Yes, that’s me in the purple dress! And, yes, I am aware that I look like I should be on the prow of a ship. But it fits! And we have reservations for Saturday night to pretty much the only place nearby I can wear it. I have an appointment Saturday morning with my hairdresser, so I’m looking for a little more input to help me decide on a style. Sparky said it looks good down in the dress, but I disagree.
I’m going to list the styles with numbers and then do a poll so you can vote for the style you like. Sorry about the green mascara – it doesn’t look like that on the website and I didn’t feel like going back to change all of them once I’d cropped them. I should also mention that the first picture isn’t me, as if you couldn’t figure that out on your own. It’s a picture of a hairstyle I like, but I couldn’t find a corresponding ‘do on either website.
So, here goes:
That’s it. Have at it and thanks for your input!
Well that is just neat.
I got my hair cut off today and I cannot stress enough, get your stylist to razor the ends if you have thick superstraight hair like me. Makes it lay perfectly w/o effort. And I am some serious lazy.
These are gorgeous (except the butch blonde girl, what is that about? are we taking up tennis as a sport??). I like 2. Very chic and fun. Can’t wait to see what you choose!
Also, the dress looks fabulous!!!! And, honey, allof us with a not-inconsiderable rack look like the prow of a ship. Be proud. Those goddesses were for good luck.
What image are you going for? Me, I like #6, but I think that’s cuz I’m a sucker for glasses, and I want to be a cool geeky librarian when I grow up – but I dunno if that’s what you want to project or not. Are you trying to look younger? Older? Sophisticated? Tousled?
I went with 7… really like the length on 4, but the bangs were too blocky. Would you bother with the upkeep on 6 or 8 to keep them sleek?
I’ve learned with my own hair that my *hair* looks better long, but my *face* looks better with my hair shorter – I think that’s pretty common for a lot of women. So while you’re feeling confident and ready to show off your face – quick, cut away!
Ahhh, Jenn, you know me so well. I agree with you on 4 – I’m thinking maybe I’ll end up combining some of the looks, assuming that makes sense to my stylist.
Star, I don’t really have a particular image in mind. My main criterion, as Jenn alluded to, is ease of care. I’m not really willing to spend more than about five minutes on my hair on any given day. So, maybe tousled? But only if I don’t have to work very hard to make it look good tousled.
I have a thing for glasses, too. Don’t wear them, but I’ve always wanted to. I have serious glasses envy, hence the glasses in #6.
Also, I’m wondering if people are voting for 8 because my face looks so much better in that one. Sparky says it doesn’t look like me. Thanks, hon. That is the one from the site with the better make-up program. It lets you use concealer and foundation.
Lora, I used to have thick, fine, straight hair, but it decided to become wavy right after I turned thirty. Now that I’m over 40 and going gray, there are sections that are course and downright kinky (and not in a good way). So I don’t know if the razor thing will work for me, but I’m going to talk to my stylist about it.
I was going to get the cut on Saturday morning at 8, but I just put off our dinner with the dress until September, so I rearranged the haircut as well. It’s going to happen a week from Saturday, when I can go in at 11:30 am instead of the freakin’ crack of hairdressing dawn. I’d like my stylist’s eyes to be open while she works on me.
Hey there! I like all of these. One, two, and seven all seemed very similar, and I think they all look good. I voted for two because of the three, I liked two and seven a bit better, and two was the first on the poll.
If I could have had another vote, I would have voted for 8 too.
That probably doesn’t help at all. 🙂
I hope you’ll post the big reveal.
Okay, Sparky just clarified that he meant he thinks the picture (#8) looks kind of cartoonish and that I look much better than that.
