Have to change my icon

So, after this post, I went ahead and cut my dreads off the next day.  I thought about what asakiyume  said about de-investing the decision to cut of its importance and others' wise comments/questions about whether the dreads represented who I am, and out came the scissors.

Without going into a long ramble about the whys and wherefores of my decision, I concluded that I really was ready for a change. Period. And so....

One last pic with the dreads

Off with her....dreads!

After whacking off the dreads, I had awesome long, wavy wisps around my neck and I dearly wanted Julien to shape the rest of my hair for me, but he was afraid of messing it up.  So, I caved, went to a salon, and came out very angry and upset.  The hairdresser did not listen to me AT ALL and the below mess cost me 51 euros ($71)...a haircut! WITHOUT styling!

I finally convinced J that he could do no worse and he set to giving me the backup haircut I had in mind: a mohawk.  Taking turns with the scissors and clippers, this is what we came up with.  Much better than throwing my money at a professional if you ask me.  And my darling girl has a hairstyle to match. Hers is all-natural, though, thanks to the hair-growth pattern she inherited from her daddy. :P 

And a front view of Soëlie.  See, frigg ? Blonde!  :)

It looks like she has a little Alfalfa thing going on. *lol*

What cute girls with cute hair!!

I can see how unhappy you were before. It's really depressing how some people get away with calling themselves stylists.

I really do like the new 'do.

Thank you, dear!

And yes, very depressing. What really got my goat is the total not listening and then trying to validate her action when I told her she just did what I asked her not to do (cut off the wisps).

It's tough to find a good one. I'm really happy with the person I have now, but it did take some looking. The not listening thing seems to happen about half the time.

Yup, blonde. :)

PS. You forgot to mention just how LONG TIME you kept your new hairstyle a secret!!!!!

Nuh-uh. :P I gave a link to the post and then said "the day after."

Riiiight. That clearly doesn't count!

You guys match perfectly! What a gorgeous pair of mother-daughter photos.

For the record, you looked lovely in dreads, and you look lovely with the mohawk.

I seem to always be behind the camera. iI have to make it a point to hand it off every now and then, so S will have some pics of us together.

You always say the sweetest things. :D

Oh I LOVE your new hair! You two are so beautiful together like that too. *HUGS*

That's so funny! Raviv's hair does the same thing! It's all blond and very fine, except for this one crazy patch on the top of his head that is almost light brown and thicker. He looks like a Cabbage Patch doll...

I have never seen a mohawk actually look feminine and attractive like that. Much prettier than the Chewbacca look the hairdresser gave you...

That was a *terrible* haircut from the salon. Not you at all!
