morale boost

About two or three weeks ago I reached the point where I hated my hair. You know, that moment when everything about your hair repulses you: color, length, style. My ends were so bad that my hair wouldn't curl well or even straighten well, my roots were almost three inches long, and my bangs were more of an awkward layer than bangs. This is what I was dealing with:

 
Oh, don't worry--sometimes I got it to look like this:

Much less homeless looking.

So I finally made an appointment to get my hair done, and since I don't have a favorite place to go here in Provo (the past couple of times I've just gone to the Paul Mitchell hair school, which is okay, I guess) I called up Josh's sister, Nicole (a.k.a. my future sister-in-law), who is finishing up hair school this summer. In short, I. love. my. hair. I left the nice school salon (yes, it did feel much more like a real salon than PM) with hair dyed the perfect shade of dark brown, my split ends gone, and even my eyebrows tinted. And I was only there for a little over two hours. And when I went to go pay, Nicole insisted that this one was a gift. Instead of looking like a bad mother who could be featured on "Law and Order," I look much more like a 22-year-old about to graduate from Brigham Young University:

Plus while I waited for my hair color to process, I flipped through this:

Just lovely.

Love it! Absolutely love it! Getting my hair done is one of my favorite things to do for my morale. And to flip through magazines of course.

Very cute. I'm so jealous that you have a hair stylist in the family. So jealous!

It'll be fun to hear all your wedding planning minutiae. I never did that, and I'm not sorry, but I'm sure your event will be lovely.

I too am jealous that you have a hair stylist in the "family", and you look great! Wedding magazines are so fun! I'm so happy for you! I am using an abundance of exclamation points! I want to have my hair done! I miss you! I love you!

Too cute. Plus I was cracking up at your line, "Oh don't worry sometimes I could get it to look like this." Too funny. But I have to say, I have never seen anyone in your family have a TRUE bad hair day!:)

LOVE. IT. Love it! And where did you get that cute flower, anyway? I am also jealous that you will have a stylist in the family.

You look great!

So funny! I loved the comment about looking like a bad mother off of "Law & Order". You didn't, but it was very funny. I love the cut and color. It's amazing what I can deal with when my hair is a great color! Love you.
