Before and After Highlighting Pictures

No this is not me...I'm just teasing you is my sweet friend Rodgie who owns an antique store here in town. Isn't her hair cute? She is such a fun person and I always like her hair. I have considered growing my hair a little longer and trying this style.

Ok, this is me... a few days after my highlights. I'm saying " I like it or not?"

The lighting in these above pictures is not very good, but my husband took these to show my hair from each angle after the highlights.

This is me in the car on the way home from the Salon. I was excited to get home and show my husband to see if he liked it...and he did.

This is me in the 2 hour highlighting process. Yikes I looked so silly!!!!

And these last three pictures are me before I went to the Salon. Was there enough change? I'm still thinking about it and wondering if I want to do something more.

I know I put the before pictures after the after pictures, but I was too tired to switch them around tee hee.

Yay! My laptop is working again! I have been unable to post pictures of my new hair highlights until today. A couple of weeks ago I did a post about Meg Ryan's hair being cute, and I was exploring some styles for myself because I am turning 60 this month and feeling kinda down about that. Well I haven't gotten my hair cut yet, but I did get it highlighted. Still deciding if I like it...and considering doing more. I don't think it looks very different. What do you think? Any suggestions? One thing I think is I need a style with more height on top, so I think I might go get it layered. I have been letting it grow since November because I have had really short hair for a very long time...but it is awkward in the different stages it goes through.

I love my stylist and she is very good, and she is willing to help me with whatever I want to do. I have just been feeling a need for some changes. It is kinda fun to make changes and try new things once in awhile don't ya think?!

Momma Linda,

I think you are such a beautiful lady! :) I think your new highlights brighten your face and look great! I smiled when I saw it was "Madison Avenue" salon, since that's the street I live on. Ha! I love the picture of you in the salon! I've always wanted to get foil highlights like that! I'm trying to let my hair grow out, but it's driving me crazy! We'll see how long I can last before I chop it all off again. :D

Your hair looks beautiful!

Linda, Thank you for the prayers. Appreciate you.

Yep. I think I had July on the brain. This spring/summer has been like a dream...too much on my mind and the pain meds do a number on me!

God bless you,

I like your hair, with or without the highlights and the style is nice as well. You look marvelous!

Love this post, Momma! I think the highlights are so pretty! I am no help in the hairstyle dept because I am terrible with picking out my own hairstyle! What I do love is walking out of the salon with a great cut. I feel like I'm on cloud nine!

As for turning 60, you should celebrate it and try not to get down! You are still SO young!

Love you!
V :)

Love the highlights and go for a change!

I think you look beautiful either way. It is hard to tell a huge difference in the pics, but I can definitely tell you got something done. I think it looks great though, however if you feel like you want to go for more...why not? I always have fun playing around with my hair and it makes me feel good too. :)

I think your hair is very pretty. I'm glad you had the guts to go for the gusto!

I really like the highlights. Next time you need your hair done you can always try something different. Great thing about hair is that if you don't like it you can change it!
