A Year Later

Today is the 1 year anniversary of Jenny, Aurora and I getting our heads shaved for St. Baldrick's. Mostly, I've pretty much just let mine grow, very little cutting or styling, because it really doesn't seem worth it.

That is, until Jenny's SO mentioned that I was really growing myself quite the mullet.

Jenny can pull it off I think. Me? Not so much.


So we invited/begged for our cousin Lindsay to come over and cut our hair. She's currently taking classes at the local Aveda salon and was looking for hair to cut so it was a win-win situation.

She introduced us to razoring.

And this? It's called channeling. It is unpleasant as hell. But, the result looked fantastic on Aurora's thick, straight hair.
(It does look a bit like she's about to do brain surgery.)


Jenny's looks so cute.
Hi, this is Customer Service Jenny. How can I assist you today?

And here is a good picture of me.

Here is another one.

Wow I love your hair! Anyway since you commented on my blog I thought I should comment on yours as soon as possible......A question from your comment, does your daughter have a blog? Anyway thanks for visiting my blog.

Your cousin has a real future in hair styling, she did a beautiful job! You all look lovely! I have short hair and LOVE the feel of razor-cutting, too ;)

That sounds like a fun "salon" day-wish I could've been there, too. Lindsay did a great job! I really like the new styles on all of you.

I really like all of them.
She did a great job!
We just got a flier from my son's kindergarten about a St. Baldrik's event they're looking for volunteers for around here.
In some ways I am very tempted to do it...because of you 3 ladies...however I also need to go to the office every day... not sure I could handle going through a year of explaining - well ya see it was like this...
I just admire the 3 of you so much for being able to do it!

Thank you all so much!

Rhi, thanks for stopping by, Hon. Joey does have a blog, but she hasn't written much of anything for it. I'll have her let you know when she starts posting.

Renee, people are SO nice to you when you do this. And working in an office, I bet you'd get a lot of donations because people would see you every single day. It was totally worth it.

I'm still so proud/impressed/inspired that you did this. So cool.

I would be lying if I said that you didn't make me think about doing it.

Maybe one day. Even with my jack-o-lantern head.

Wow! Great cut, great picture of you.
I feel inspired now! I too, haven't done a thing with my hair in ages. So expensive to do it and keep up with it. Hmmmm. Maybe.
