Call Me Mike

Or Joe. Or Sam. Or turnip.

I feel rather manly I think.

I still find myself in that self-conscious period right after a lifestyle changing Do. I feel like a newborn puppy. Shaky and unsure. What am I now? I had worn the ever popular angle bob for over a year, and was happy with it, yet bored. Now that summer is preheating its oven, the last thing I want to do is spend a long time blow drying my hair and flat-ironing it. Blech!

Now I don't have to. See?

As I watched her cut my hair shorter and shorter, I felt a sense of freedom, mixed with slight fear. As I saw the piles of my hair around me on the floor and saw the new me in the mirror, I thought, "Well, there you have it."

And I have spent the past, oh, five hours catching glimpses of myself and wondering, "Um...am I sure about this?" Like I have a choice.

  1. Well if that is your head behind the camera, and I suspect it is, I LOVE IT. You have the perfect head to do all the spunky, sassy and sexy styles. And you are beautiful however it is. When I don't have hair on my head, all teased up TEXAS style, I look like Ashley's mini YORKIE after he comes out of a bath. Peek out from behind that camera and show us that beautiful girl!

  16. Your hair looks adorable. I love it... I go back and forth all the time about cutting mine. But in the summer I like to have it a little longer so that I can do the ponytail thing and get it out of my way due to the heat.

    You are going to enjoy that cut, Holly. Beautiful woman.

  20. This is such a sassy, spunky cut! I love how it's all pieced & chunky and spikey, but still oh-so-feminine! Gorgeous.

  21. what a cute shot - and what *looks* to be a fantastic new do!

  22. From what I can tell, this new DO works great for you! I have always been a short hair person, it's so easy! The only thing easier is long, lank hair in a ponytail, and that's not fashionable!
