Not Quite Twiggy ...

Regular readers will know that I have ongoing issues with my hair.
Well today was the day I finally got it cut.
I went into the salon clutching my "I want to look like this" photos which every hairdresser must hate.
These were what I wanted:
This is how it looked in the hairdressers.


And this is how it looked when I got home.



I promise to not leave it so long before cuts next time. *
* Disclaimer : written in case my hairdresser reads this. In all likelihood it will be another six months ...

I haven't had a hair cut I have been happy with since the late eighties.... mind you that could be because of the fatter face and flabby neck! ;D

I don't seem to have a regular hair dresser... do you?

My hair has a natural slight curl and hairdressers these days seem flumoxed by wavey curly hair.... they all seem to want to take the straightners to me.... I like curly hair... I am a leo and its my mane.... gggrrraaarrrr! ;D

I really like your new doo.... it really suits you and I will try and make an effort to get my hair cut more than once a year ... possibly!

It's a lovely haircut, but you know what would make it even better? If you'd walk around with a fan blowing on your hair at all times. Then you'd really have that model look.

you look great! i think your hairdresser did a fabulous job

Kitschy Coo said...

I think it's lovely :) And that's a mighty pretty blouse too!

Like you've just stepped out of the salon. Oh! You have. I prefer your look. Twiggy seems to have forgotten to put anything on under her coat. You'll get parky love, put some undies on! (that to Twiggy - just to clarify)

LoloDesigns said...

Fabulous darling! really suits you, as does that gorgeous top ;o)

Bit delayed but lil sis doesn't know name of shop in St Ives either, not very observant are we! xx

It looks great - your hairdresser did you proud by getting it so close to the photos.

Repeating what everyone else has said: Great Haircut! (and lovely top too).x

Federica said...

wooow! you look great! You must be very happy and satisfied (it happens rarely to me when I go to the hairdresser: I always don't get what I wanted :( ) ..and btw, around ten years ago, I remember going to the hairdresser with a geri halliwell picture.. saying "I want my hair like that!" LOL
ps: yes the pictures are from castle combe :) I recently moved in swindon (the nice area of swindon.. if there's any ^__^ wella ctually, really on the out-out-out-out-skirt!) and all my italian friends want detailed pictures and stories about my area, the uk and all the lovely villages around here! So we are almost neighbours !!! :) hugs federica

Your new hair looks lovely!

I've promised myself a haircut when my littlest one starts school as a for of consolation. It's been a very long time since the last one. I have no idea what style to ask for though!

Laura said...

You look a lot like Fiona, whoever she is. Not too savvy am I?

Not one hairdresser that I have ever been to has ever taken the slightest bit of notice of any "I want to look like this " Photos!!!! Your hair looks good. I was looking at you lifes big questions, it made me laugh out loud. Such funny photos!
I am now a follower to help you get to 200! I am trying to get to a hundred! Suzie :)
