From Bean to Sprout

Time for a change July 15, 2011

I feel I had become a bit too complacent style wise ever since having Henry. Yes I really enjoyed having long hair but all I did was put it in a ponytail and rarely styled it. I liked the long hair hippy earth mama vibe I was putting out but I was suppressing my “trying to be current and hip” self.

Anyways with the summer heat/humidity, my long hair was taking forever to dry and because it was so long and heavy, it was lying flat with curls at the bottom. I decided I wanted something a bit more edgy with lots and lots of textured layers so that when I let my hair air dry (which is 99% of the time), it would look wild and crazy and curly (Yes, I’ve finally embraced the curls). So without further ado, here are some before and after pics. I got some long side bangs however in these pics, I’ve pined them back and up. I’m also wearing the same shirt to give some perspective (ok, actually, it just ended up that I’m wearing the same shirt).

really long and not very styled


rock on


as you can see, it's very curly


head on. It's tough trying to show off hair while doing a self pic. I should have asked Chris to take it.


rock on mom!
