hair ... ever changing - but now what?

so... i'm in a rut. a hair rut. i need help/suggestions. (that's hannah. she's adorable!)





this was my hair in december. long. i was needing a change. so i went drastic. this is my hair in february, right after i cut it.










this is my hair right now. tonight. its in its "frizzy-summer-i-refuse-to-sweat-my-way-through-a-blow-dry-look"

I'm trying really hard to not look chubby. haha. didn't work so great. i think i need to grow it out just a little more. cause i don't like not being able to pull it up. its just barely getting ponytail ready. and i need that option. but any suggestions?

first of all, highlight the random link, click on the link button in the toolbar and erase whatever is there. that will get rid of the linkage. Second of all, i liked your hair short. but I know what you mean about not wanting to blow dry in the hot summer months.have you tried velcro curlers? they might help with the frizzies.

Ah! I love velcro curlers. I used to use them all the time like forever and a day ago when I have a different haircut, yeah, but I loved! I do like your hair short also, but I feel for ya about the not being able to pull it up in a ponytail. I've finally come to terms with that myself, thought I sometimes still curse my hair for not being able to do that.

well... this is mainly because i had about 15 minutes after i got out of the shower before mel came over today. so - it was super bad. but when i'm back on track, i'll blow dry & do still. i did yesterday. and while i was at your house, i was lazy... duh. but i loved that style, just don't think that short...

I don't know where you are in Utah but if you are close go to my hair guy. His name is J.R. Nielsen he owns a day spa. He is fabulous and will have tons of ideas. I usually wait to get my hair done when we visit Utah because I love him. I have an ugly cut right now because I let someone down here do it.

thanks jori... i might have to give him a whirl. here's the thing about that picture - i was so embarressed about the frizzy hair, and the double chin, that i was stretching my neck so hard so i didn't have a doubly. i look like a freak...

Kristi said...

I can't see your pictures...

Jori said...

I know I always stretch my neck out. Sadly I would have to stretch my neck out the length of a giraffe to conpensate for my turkey gobble. Now I have chipmunk cheeks too. Now that I'm 34 I just can't eat the way I did in my twenties. It really sucks. I still haven't lost my Kaitlin weight and she is 4 :(

Go let somebody good who has a lot of ideas run his fingers through your locks and get his (maybe her but not as fun) feedback. They can tell you what would look good on your face. Maybe bangs...maybe some long layers who knows!!! I like long and short whatever works for you.

Holly O'Keefe said...

Try Jessica! I am telling you, she gave the best haircuts in the world.

Shelley said...

I'm going to email you a buncha hair pics I love... It would suit your hair length right now too I think. :) Especially the Jennifer Aniston cut... circa season 8 when she's pregnant... :) Email coming soon.

i always vote shorter, but i don't know your hair type. i think that a good stylist and good products are the key. i swear by and love aveda stylists and products. bumble & bumble is the other one i love. i think if you go to an aveda or b&b salon, you will be guided in the right direction. just be ready to lay down some cash for products.

Jori said...

J.R.'s spa carries bumble and bumble. It is great stuff. I think he is fairly reasonable too. For a cut and highlight he charges me 110.00. I pay 130.00 in Vegas and that is for a crap salon.

Miss Jones said...

holy cow! that's rape! jori, thanks so much for the suggest - i'll definitely look into it. i've been going to a bumble and bumble salon. and its great, but my girls about to pop with a baby. and I've only been paying $35 for a cut!

Jori said...

I'm not sure what he charges just for just a cut. I always have to get mine colored too. I have poo brown hair with gray in it if I don't.

Jori said...

just for just? I am retarded

Miss Jones said...

ha. i didn't even notice that. we all do "special" things. no biggie.

Chris * Natalie * Maya * Mason said...

right, right, hayley. no biggie unless it's natalie. then it requires its own post to point it out! :)

Miss Jones said...

when did i post about your typos? wasn't that holly?! geez. i "pulled a natalie" by talking to random strangers. not by making a typing mistake. i don't think you're feeling the love - feel it baby, feel it! (is your husband still out of town? that might also explain!)

It was me and I deeply regret it.
