New Summer Do

This is how I usually look on the weekends or any day I'm not at my "official" job...



wearing a baseball cap with my hair in a ponytail. And it has been SOOO hot and humid here. 100 degrees and humid is not a good combination. I finally had enough of the long hair and decided to cut it off. I announced to the husband that it was coming off. He looked at me with a sad look but decided best to say okay, whatever you think. He's learned so well over the years.

I didn't tell him when the appointment was and came home after the "deed". He came home after me that day. He walked in the house and started talking to me while I was in another room. I came out during the "Oh Sh**!" moment of his story. I thought he was referring to my hair. But he went on talking and walking thru the kitchen. Then he stopped in his tracks and said "you cut your hair. I really like it." Phew! He thought I was going to go real short so the length I settled on was a relief.

So here's the new do...





I'm really diggin' it.

I love it! You look beautiful! I was scared like your hubby, I thought you were going to go super man short or something. This is gorgeous!

Neas Nuttiness said...

You could be a model!!!

Paige said...

It looks great-I love it!

I keep thinking mine is getting too long, since I am getting old--but I have to be able to put it up, esp when it is this hot---so yours is a good length

Sydney said...

You have very nice hair. The new cut suits your shape of face too. One day I'll get someone to take a picture of how long my hair is. 99% of the time I have it in a ponytail if I am in public anyway.

I love it!
I was afraid that I was going to have to say "oh Sh**!!!" too, but this looks just great!

And you're every bit as beautiful on the outside, as you are on the inside!
*sigh*

You could go bald and look great and this happens to suit you to a T!

Faithful said...

OH SH*T! You are just TOO Cute! You could cut all your hair off and still be beautiful! (Don't we cowgirls sometimes clean up real good!)

Cute picture, cute girl, cute hairstyle! :-)

lisa said...

I love it!! It looks great. I love my hair long but my husband is different, he likes me better in short hair rather than long. Of course it usually only gets to the length yours is now and that is about as long as it will grow. I decided to cut it really short a couple of months ago and it was way to short for me but it has grown out.

Ashley said...

Cute new hairstyle. I couldn't imagine it being in the 100's with humidy and having long hair. Thumbs up on getting a good compliment from your husband.

Emily Jean said...

Cute hair! I love getting my hair cut/styled...but I never seem to be able to style it very well on my own.

Ranch Diva Rachel said...

You.look.absolutely.beautiful.

Lil Mama said...

Super cute. The husband is a lucky guy.

Pony Girl said...

It's a perfect happy medium! The layers look great. It's hard to part with my long hair. Like you, I am a ponytail and baseball cap girl! :) I just got mine colored but I really need a trim. I'm thinking of getting a couple of inches off. My co-worker just cut 11 inches off of her hair! She donated it to "locks of love", wigs for cancer patients. Her new length is a little shorter than yours.

Far Side of Fifty said...

Oh you are looking great!! The style perfectly frames your beautiful face! You can still do the pony tail, baseball hat thing! I have longer hair also, but got a cut last week and real sexy old lady highlights to help cover the grey..I can still do a pony tail..I need that in the summer anything to keep my heavy hair off my face and neck! :)

Jennifer said...
