Before. This is how I
wear wore my hair 50-75% of the time.
After. New & improved!! Much lighter and with more... I don't know... STYLE.
It won't always look like that, because I don't have a curling iron or even a blow-dryer of my own. I'm assured that it will look just fine with my normal wash & wear routine; that I can "fancy it up" easy enough (with borrowed styling appliances), and that if I have to, I can still (mostly) pull it into a ponytail.
You see the lovely Hundertwasser Der Blaue Mond Argosy 'round my neck! It's wrapped 'round twice, then tied in front. It's very, very long. I had more than a few compliments on it today, plus I was with Mom and she wore her Tartelette shawl, which she's worn almost non-stop (she told me that she's even worn it to bed once), and that was good for a few more.
What a day! A quick run through the indoor Farmer's Market, haircut, lunch, a little shopping (mostly window-shopping), a stop at the LYS, some other running around. There was a Habu trunk show at Iris Fine Yarns. In a word: incredible. There was some damage done.
Right now, I have to get to the store and lay-in supplies for tomorrow's INTERNATIONAL PAJAMA DAY!! Woohoo, I am so there.
