Hair today and gone tomorrow

There is something about spring that makes me restless with my hair.

With all that is important going on in the world, I'm concerned with hair. Shallow I know. But the way I see it, I better go crazy with what I can because pretty soon our gonverment will find a way to control what I do with my hair too.

I was playing around at again. Such a fun place to get lost on a rainy afternoon while the kids nap. Just upload a picture of yourself and instantly change your outward appearance -- no sit-ups required. A new feature is available that allows you to copy a celebrity's look. Can you guess which of my above glamor shots is borrowed from Jennifer Aniston? Or Shakira? Are the purple earrings too much?

In all seriousness [and this is really serious], I'm thinking of changing my hair. For real. Not just on the computer. I am currently growing out my A-line and that leaves me with a rather boring blah, blah brown "bob." Although someone gave me a compliment the other day and said, "I love your hair because it never looks super perfect." How sweet.... maybe. Sort of. I'll take what I can get.

Emma thinks we should both grow our hair out this year and get our hair cut when she is six (in November) to "give to children who are trying not to die." She's pretty convincing when she puts it that way. Emma's friend Heidi told her about Locks of Love and Emma thinks it is a great idea. I'm not opposed to having long hair again, but I would need to change the color or something.

Here are my options:

  • black
  • brown with red hi-lights
  • black with bangs
  • red with bangs
  • pink [Emma's choice] with or without bangs

* Please note that "brown with bangs" is not an option because I tried that and was so often confused with my mother that it grew annoying. Not that I don't adore my mother and think that she is gorgeous, but people were actually saying things like, "Sherri, you haven't aged a bit," and "Where's Tom? It's been ages." Ya, like 25 years or so. *

If you would take a moment to forget about everything else important in this world and vote on my little survey, I would appreciate it. Leave a comment with any suggestions.


Looks like I wasn't the only one having fun...

Just like mommy....

I would go for brown with red hi-lights. Maybe save black for next winter-kind of dark for spring. Bangs or no bangs...both can be cute. Good luck!

I love the quote at the top! Perfect!

I agree, brown with red hi-lights would be nice

the dk brown with red highlights makes you look like your sister, pink is real scary (sorry Emma), I like the one between the 2 blondes sort of a golden brown- why wasn't that on the list? Too close to natural? I liked the purple earring do and the color too. Too bad you aren't coming up when Andrea does we could play with mine too. Didn't I give you some Dk blonde or something like that?
Tell Emma she's cute even in pink hair!

I'd go with the moderate brown with red highlights too. :)

I would go dark with highlights. Partial to red for myself. I loved it when my stylist gave me these kicky lowlights in a deep purple on the underside of my hair, you could only see them if I put the top half of my hair back or in a ponytail. Helped me get over the turning 30 hump. :D

You look like Julia Roberts when you have the long feathered brown hair.
I think a chestnut brown with blonde highlights would look good.

Ahhh...I secretly envy your life on a farm and your cute house and beautiful family...
