My New Do!


Okay, here's my new hair cut. Do you know how hard it is to take a decent photo or yourself? Well, after many shots of my butt and gut I finally figured out the timer feature on my camera. Then there's the cropping out of the gihugic boobs and flappy arms. HOWEVER, I do like my haircut! Washing my hair took a teeny amount of shampoo and I dried it in like 5 minutes. Then came the tricky part....using a flat iron!! After my $37 haircut, my convincing stylist sent me to the beauty warehouse place for a $68 flat iron! Geez Louise!! I better get to making some crafts to sell pronto!

If you have curly hair like me....we're talking mega waves here....you know how hard it is to keep a straight hair style. I was holding onto that long, curly hair but once we got a nice, hot day those feelings changed. I wanted something new and sporty that wouldn't curl up the minute I walked out the door. So the flat iron did the trick. The hard part was not fluffing my hair up with the pick. I just put some waxy junk on and it was done. My biggest fear is that I will fry my hair over time..we'll see!

Okay, that's it for these photos of me. Don't expect anymore for a loooooong time! I'm off to make a cute graduation ensemble for my friend.......strawberry theme! I can't wait to post it!

Hi! I love your website..my friend told me it was a must see. I also just "lopped off" 7 inches of my hair...and its naturally curly too! I'm so there with you on the flat iron..but you will be so glad you spent the $'s. Isn't it funny..I would kill for straight hair..and others want ours!

I've been stalking your blog for a while now but I just had to make a comment on the hair...it looks great! I am in love with my flat iron, I would take it to bed with me if I could!! Lol. With the Texas humidity, it is the only thing that makes my hair look halfway decent sometimes.
Great new look! I hope you like it for the long haul.

Mish you look fabulous! I LOVE your new do. I use my flat iron just about every day but some days I do just let the wave go to town. Thank you so much for sharing your pic.

Amy said...

Your haircut is fabulous! Don't be so hard on yourself about your arms, boobs, gut and butt. You are loved and respected. God loves you too, no matter what we look like or do. So, we have to love ourselves too! So, chin up! Your smile is the best accessory! (This comment was as much for me as you. I find myself making comments about myself like you did and we have to just STOP IT!!)

Have a great weekend looking gorgeous!

Sherrie said...

It suits your face so well Mish....beautiful! You won't be sorry with a flat iron, a real time saver when your hair won't do what you want it to. Thanks for showing us!

Anne Marie said...

Gorgeous, Georgious! So glad you posted a pic. While reading your post yesterday I was hoping to eventually see your new do!

PJBstamper said...

Great new do! I don't suppose the flat iron saves up those waves in some kind of reservoir? Cause if so, I want them!!

Leslie Springer said...

Your hair looks wonderful!! Smile and have a Happy Day!

LettyLian said...

Your hair looks great! I too have naturally curly hair and straighten it daily... and have been for more than a year now.

Fabulous do! Love the cut!!! It's a great photo, too. You should change out your current blog photo with the new one. That way I can always find the new do and take it in to my stylist!!

Bethany Paull said...

You look gorgeous with your new 'do.

Sarah Spencer said...

Did you get a chi iron. They are THE BEST flat iron on the market. My hair is so thick and curly it takes about 12 hours to air dry. The chi iron will not fry your hair because it is ceramic not metal. Its a God send.

Leese said...

You look SO Hot! very pretty!

Valerie said...

Hubba Hubba! Lookin' fine, Mish!

Quilt Nut said...

Cambria Turnbow said...

Rose Ann said...

Oh Michelle...I LOVE your new haircut! It totally shows off your pretty face. (I can relate to the curlies...I straighten my hair as well).

Susan said...

You are Beautiful!!! Love you hair cut!

Kim said...

Looks awesome! I've got natural curls too and the good 'ol flat iron is the only thing that works to get that nice, smooth look. But like you I have a really hard time not "fluffing!" :-)

LSN2 said...

Cute new do Michelle! I wish that I could wear longer hair, but it just winds up looking stringy and ugly on me.

WOW, I love your cut, you look younger, fabulous, and you sure are beautiful!! TFS.

Linda Bullard said...

Your new hair style is "tres chic!" And your remarks about your curly hair reminded me of a Peanuts cartoon that my college roommate kept taped on her study desk. The character was Frieda, and the quote was "People expect more of you when you have naturally curly hair!" :o) Linda
