the back of my neck is very happy...


 Good afternoon everyone!

Believe it or not I've been taking photos, but I forget to transfer them from my home computer to my flash drive.Today however, we have evidence in hand! Not to mention a surprise haircut! But before I get into it-how was everyone's long weekend? I caught up on a lot of sleep. I was very well rested by the time Tuesday came around :)

Do you all remain "faithful" to one hair salon? I've been bouncing around since I moved up here, and I've never really been happy with where I've gone (not to mention the outrageous DC/MD salon prices). So when Groupon offered a deal at a nearby hair salon I figured I would go ahead and try it. Right after I bought the Groupon I found a different wonderful salon, and I've been debating about what to do with the Groupon ever since. Should I use it and just go to the different hair stylist, and then pretend like nothing happened when I go in to the other salon later this month? Or just lose out and let the Groupon expire? Well, obviously I used it, and in the process I think I may have found a new favorite salon. 


Anyway, I told the woman that I have always wanted a bob, but I don't like having short hair and she said I should go ahead and go for it (well, not a true bob, but short hair). Which I did, and I love it! I feel so much cooler without hair on the back of my neck! Next step-shaved head! Ok, not really. but I'm super happy :)

Who knew I could drone on and on about a silly haircut? Let's get on to outfit details:

Cardigan: Target ($7.49, May 2009)
Brown polka dot dress: Target ($6, October 2009)
Purple tank: Lane Bryant ($10, May 2011)
Gold leaf belt: Coldwater Creek ($17, January 2011)
Shoes: 6pm ($40, May 2011)
Necklace: Ann Taylor (years ago)

Oh, it's not silly, it's super cute! I'd probably use the Groupon anyhow and then go back to the wonderful salon. Or do you have someone you could give it to who would use it?

I was going to the same stylist for YEARS until I started coming home every time whining about my hair and my husband insisted I stop going there if I was so unhappy. Now I'm on the lookout new. ;)

What a great outfit with all the color combos. I have been looking for a polka dot dress forever and no luck yet. You look great!

And, your hair looks great too! Nice and breezy for summer.

Great hair cut!
I go to the same salon usually but not the same stylist. It's a school so there's always new people there.

Love the hair! I have a very similar cut and just got the back stacked. I like it so much better than when she did regular layers. I've been going to the same lady for 5 or so years. I love her personality, but her hair cutting is hit or miss. We sometimes have a difference of judgement on the length of haircuts in photos (like 3" difference, yikes!). But this time was a win.

Love it, love it, love it. A good haircut always makes me happy!
