Haircut

Here we go. Thank you all for indulging my need for drama over haircuts. I appreciated the input, and last Tuesday, I just went for it. There is a wonderful girl in the other ward here in South Bend who will come to your house and cut your hair. Can you believe it? Is that service or what? And because I can never do anything all by myself, I invited two friends who had expressed interest in also getting their hair cut to join me. Here I am, as the Holder of the Babies, while Kelly got her hair cut.
Here is Kelly, with Chantel cutting her hair. I think the two side buns look is a good one for you, Kelly. Somehow I didn't get a picture of her finished product, but she looked stunning for her Thanksgiving trip to Seattle.
Here I am, with my hair all bundled to be chopped for Locks of Love. You know, it's a strange feeling every time they cut off my ponytail and lay it on the counter next to me. Almost like my arm is lying there (without the pain, of course). Very strange.


Here she is, finishing things up. Chantel was willing to use a blow dryer and a flat iron to do my hair. I am willing to comb it and style it with a little product. I think I may even like how I do it better. Then Tracy got her hair cut. Here she is before. Here she is during. Tracy went for a chin length bob with a-line layers. Very cute, but again, somehow I missed the finished product.
And to show my lack of pride, I am posting these pictures of how I look after I style my hair.
Side shot.

Now, I'm always willing to give any haircut a shot. Hair grows back, and really, what difference does it make? However, I think I will like this cut better when my bangs are a little longer, and when it stays better in position like my muse, Jesse Kelly-Landes. I especially like that little "flip" thing her sideburns do. Nothing a month of grow out can't help, right?

I don't know if you remember me or not; I'm Jacob Frost's little sister Rachele. I found your blog by blog stalking. I absolutely love your new cut. I don't know that I would be brave enough to go that short.

All of you are so cute. Somehow I am not aware of the "ward" haircutter I will have to talk to you about her when I see you next!

Emilee!! You go, girl!! I LOVE IT! It looks so stylish and modern and fantastic on you.

I so need a do of some sort. My locks are screaming for one. Perhaps you have inspired me....

Liz said...

You are one gutsy woman! I'm impressed.

Logan said...

Em, the hair looks good. But let's not kid ourselves...E would have looked even better. I suppose there's always next time.

Very cute. You have a face that totally does short haircuts. I really like it.

Don't you love the feeling of your hair after you chop it off? You are a brave soul but the results are fantastic!
Plus, you've cut down on your supply of shampoo and probably 20-30 minutes of blow drying and styling your long hair. Definite advantages.

You did it! I love it!
Too bad Katie Couric had to copy you. She's always been a spotlight stealer.

The Brady Bunch said...

Emily, I can't say it enough. I love it! I love it! I love it!. You look so good. I just can't get over how good you look.

Annabelle said...

The Borns said...

Mags said...

em yer gorgeous! seriously it is so cute and stylish and you look every bit the part of fabulous. i have lots of other adjectives rolling around in my head but it seems redundant.

cuteness, i like that one.

Kent and Leisy said...

I think it looks great! very impressive and brave. was the first shampooing so strange? that first time to wash your hair after a big cut is so dramatic (in my opinion!).

Stephanie said...

Em, You did it! You are a brave woman, but after all, it is only hair and it will grow back if you don't like it, but I sure do, you look very cute and stylin'. I love to read what you and the family are up to, thank you for being such a good blogger and letting us who don't enjoy yours. Love you!
