I Got My Hair Did

Posted: August 6, 2011 at 4:00 pm

The summer heat means I end up with my hair in a ponytail half the time. Wearing my hair up so much gives it that nasty split-end, unhealthy look much faster than normal. So, I gave my locks a little bit of TLC today with a trip to the salon.

I wanted something different and fresh, but not a drastic change. My hair dresser, Angela, did a great job by shortening up the length a tad and giving me a few more face framing layers and a bit more of a side bang.


I feel like a brand new woman! I can’t wait to show it all off….at my nephew’s birthday party. So there’s no hot date for this hair, but at least its healthy again. And its time for this healthy head of hair to go eat some cake. Happy Saturday and enjoy the FFF Features of the Week!

Featured Reading of the Week: Jane @ Broccolini and Cheese


Jane is a recent blog discovery of mine and I already love her and her blog so much. She doesn’t fear putting her true thoughts, emotions, and challenges out there. She has a sense of humor that never fails to amuse me.  And she shares her life in that relatable way I adore in a blog. Jane is headed out of town for a bit, so give her some love before she goes, then add her to your reader to keep up with her when she gets back. You won’t be disappointed!

    I get my hair cut just shy of never (uh, just checked on my blog- my last hair cut was in April), so I probably should schedule one for when I go home in THREE weeks for a visit woo woooo.

    Your hair looks AWESOME. I love it 🙂 And I love your weekly recaps, and that pizza picture totally made me drool a little.

  11. Your hair looks great! Summer can be so hard on our hair with all the chlorine-filled pools, ponytails and humidity caused frizz! The one thing I treat myself to regularly is a trip to the salon. I have an appt every 6 – 8 weeks to keep these locks lookin’ fine.

  12. Your hair looks so cute! I just made a hair appt for next week. I try to go every 2 months but I think it has been 3 eeeek!!

  13. I can’t get over how cute Braedon is! I can’t get over it! Love the new ‘do:)

  14. You hair looks great! I usually get my hair cut every 2 months. Since it’s curly and I have to have a lot of layers, they need shaped up fairly often. Going to check out that blog now! 🙂

  15. Love the hair! It’s such a pick-me-up to get to the salon for a proper style. Love it!

  16. Your hair looks awesome! I love getting my hair did! 😀

  17. Khushboo says:

    Loving the hair cut, looks great! I probably get mine ‘did’ every 4-5 months!

  18. Anna Marie says:
