My Name Is Nettie and I Have a Fabulous New Haircut

People are always telling me to do something with my hair. So I did. I cut it all off, ten-plus inches. But I didn't stop there. I also got....layers. Yes I, of the roll-to-class-in-my-PJ's school, have layers. And I love it. Seriously, it's ridiculous how happy this makes me. I was walking around grinning in mirrors all day. I thought I would feel ambivalent about losing the length I've been working on for a year and a half, but I feel like Xena Warrior Princess or something. I wanna go kick some butt!

Kathleen does the best double takes. When I walked into work, the only person up front was someone I hadn't met (I took pity on her and didn't make her do the customer spiel). I was goping to the back and Kat was at the cash register not really paying attention. Then she looked up again and her mouth just dropped open. I said, "You like?" and she's going, "Ooh, I like, I like! Where'd you get it done? Lemme see the back!," ruffling her fingers through my hair, "Go show Harmony!" She was almost as excited as I was. I really have the best job in the world.

I think maybe I need to get haircuts more often, cause I was just in the best mood all day. I hadn't had one since the last time I donated my hair. I have it short and framing my face in the front, and then it's sort of graduated towards the back and the ends are feathery. I was going for Mariska Hargitay's hair in the sixth season of Law & Order: SVU, and it turned out soooo well. It's so perfect and cute and I love it, I love it, I love it!

Pictures please! Glad you are feeling uplifted. I love a little pampering every now and then, what a treat. Nothing like a new hair cut to make you feel like a million bucks.

I know exactly what you mean with the whole wanna go run the world with your new hair cut kind of thing: Except I've been growing my hair out since, well, my first year of Bible School: and I love long hair: and now I cry when I have to get it cut: well...only when they cut my hair and I don't like it. ANYWAYS...yes: do a picture!!

Sounds SMASHING! Now when people say "Did you get a haircut?" you can say "No, I got them all cut." Then you can laugh and laugh.

WONDERFUL NEWS! I love a good hair cut. I am so glad you feel good about it. I have had a "bad" hair cut and they are the worst. Congrats!

Pictures. Must have pictures.

Our Nettie, with short hair.

I get my hair cut so short, I should probably just save myself the $14.95 and shave my head.

I think I have decided not to cut my hair after all, I am waiting for a while longer.
