Pinned It, Made it! Monday: Haircut

I'm joining Tammy "Country Girl at Home" for

Please join us.

It was time for a hair cut, but I was not up to going out to a salon.  I know a self-cut is scary, but to me a salon-cut is scarier.  I've had some very bad haircuts in my 61 years of life.  I cry thinking about some of them.

Okay... here is me pre-cut.  Yep look'n a bit puny too. :-(   I hate my droopy eye, but health insurance will only pay if it interferes with my vision.  It only does that when I'm really tired.. I'm really tired here.

Bathroom mirror photos are not the best.. even with flash.  They should open in a new window for you.

I love pulling my hair into a no-fuss ponytail, but my hair is still very thick and is heavy when it is long.  Too heavy for my bad neck.

The back view.... my waves cause it to flip thisaway and thataway even when it is cut even.

My hair is wavy and no matter how much conditioners and leave-in conditioners I use with our humidity it is unruly.

I figured I could do no worse than the last stylist did.  Once a stylist does me wrong I do not go back.  First I wanted to do a little layer in my hair.  So I followed the directions for layering.   I had to do it a couple of times.  I then did the u-shape trim.  I had to do this more than once too... the hair tends to comb different every time no matter how careful.  There are also directions on how to do a straight-across trim.

It does look better.  It took a few more days after this to get some of it right.  With my waves it just isn't easy.

Here we are at a Grandparent's Lunch with our granddaughter, Mary.  You can tell my hair has settled a bit. My bangs are a bit messed up because I shoved my sunglasses on top of my head :-)

I cannot leave Nick out... this was a few weeks ago and we are hamming it up for Mary behind the camera.  My ugly shoes are cause of that foot surgery :-)  It was not easy getting up :-(

I pin more than I try :-)

  1. Hi Zaroga,

    Your last statement made me smile....I also pin way more than I try!

    I'm amazed at anyone that can attempt cutting their own hair. Yours turned out great. That cut frames your face and actually makes you look younger! That's always a good thing in my book! Oh to have a few of those hair is fine and straight!

    Your granddaughter, Mary, has beautiful red hair! :)

    Thank you for participating in Pinned it Made it Monday! And have a great week!


  2. Your hair turned out great! I don't know if I am brave enough to try that myself, but you did a great job :)

  3. I can totally identify with the trauma of bad haircuts. One was from a four star spa! I sobbed and they still made me pay. Your cut looks great! Good job!

  4. You are certainly a lot braver than me! LOL! I have attempted to cut my own hair in the past, but I usually just chop it up so bad that I end up going to a professional to have it fixed. You did a great job on yours. It looks awesome! Visiting from Tammy's party!

  5. You did a wonderful job! I agree with Tammy that it makes you look younger! :) Enjoyed reading your post for Pinned it made it Monday!

  6. Your hair looks great! I think you did a good job on it. My oldest Amy has the thick wavy hair. When she was younger she did the cut where 4 or 5 inches up from the neck was shaved with barber shears. And the rest was long. When it grew back out her hair was thinner and easier to work with. I would not have the nerve to do this though. But My hair is straight, and no where as thick as hers.

  7. Great job on your hair! I have wavy, fine hair and have had many bad haircuts, so, I do feel for you on that!

  8. Your hair looks cute styled like this! I think you look young too! I can't imagine doing this myself. My hair is very thick and wavy.
    Mary and Nick are very sweet. LOve the photos so much!

  9. Your hair looks great! I'll have to give that a try soon.

  10. Excellent job on the hair. You are a braver woman than I. Can't wait to try the Pineapple Casserole.
