My new addiction


Cutting my own hair. I know, scary and unwise. I had a brief period when I was pregnant with Matea when I cut my own hair. It was a short choppy shag kind of cut and impossible to screw up. This time, I'm cutting my own hair to save money. And have fun.

I bought a straight razor (is that what it's called?) at Sally Beauty Supply last month and have hacked into my hair three times already. Yes, I even do the back. Yes, I cut bangs two nights ago. I'm trying to grow the front another two inches or so and end up with a choppy a-line cut with short bangs. Exactly what Crafty Papa does not want. But, I'm still paying for that pink hair I did for him in January so he'll just have to deal. I'm also coloring my hair at home and wearing cheap makeup again. Just a few of the luxuries I can easily give up while the economy is in the crapper.

You did a nice job and you look great! You are one of the few people that can pull off that look...my hair is so thick I would be terrified to cut it myself for fear that I would end up with an afro! HA!

Looks good!! You know I've done that myself.. I think it's time for another haircut! You've inspired me.

You look beautiful! I really like the bangs! You have the right kind of facial structure for short hair (lucky!).

I just colored my hair and did highlights too (all by myself). I actually did a great job making it not look homemade, but I'll definitely go darker next time.

You did a great job, I love that haircut on you! I always cut my own bangs, not my hair though. Mine is like Marie's. Way too thick to mess with. Of course, it is long, so I only get it cut every 6 to 8 months, so it isn't expensive.
