Taking Care of Number One

Sometimes we just have to put ourselves first, its a really hard thing to do, especially if you have a family to take care of (which I don't but I still spread myself thin sometimes).


As many of you know I've been down in the dumps lately, its probably winter, and a little bit of myself feeling sorry for myself.
Before

One of the things I was going to work on this past week was something for myself, and I did! Back in November I got my hair cut by a new hairdresser and well I hated it... really, I did. I pretty much have had my hair pulled back since then. I finally bit the bullet, picked up the phone and called my hairdresser got an appointment for this week. Why did I not see her in the first place back in the fall? Well her salon is downtown and I live outside of the city so its a considerable drive to go see her. But I sucked it up, drove downtown and circled the block to find some parking!

A different kind of WIP

I really splurged and got my eyebrows waxed (something I normally do but kept putting off), my hair highlighted and cut. I was there for HOURS!

I'm very happy with the results! Why do I do this every few years go and try someone else when I know Azra is the only one who can cut my hair just right!

(And you're preaching to the choir over here because I've been with my hairdresser for about 15 years even though I've moved an hour away in the middle of that time. :))

Bette said...

You look lovely! And what a way to beat the winter doldrums!

Heather said...

Looking good, you hip chick, you!!! =D

I sometimes think about switching, too, but how many times do you find a straight male hairdresser who also has curly hair like you do??!? LOL!

So pretty! I hope this cheers you up. Looking good always makes me feel better too.

Suzanne said...

Your new haircut looks great! I am glad that you a feeeling much happier with it. I had a great hairdresser close to where I was working, but once I finished work, the trip was just too far away (over 2 hours). I haven't had a decent haircut since.
