Hair-o-ing New Look

I am a foreign country to myself. And we’re not talking Germany, where “Zo-mer” is Summer. Think Yemen. Where you can’t stop staring at the new terrain, dried “maybe-those-are-fishys?” handing on poles, people with cans in their ear lobes. I walk by anything with a reflection in it and jump back a bit when I see myself. Can this be me? And the reaction of others who see me, they step back too. Saying, “you look….” and they struggle for a description. Some say, “you look like a flapper” (the cynical co-worker) “you look like you are French” (the cute barista) “you look sassy-ier” (the nurse with awesome highlights).

The thing is, I look different. Way Different. Task #38 Donate Hair to Locks of Love turned into a HUGE new look for me.

Part of my TRUST yourself challenge this week is listening to my inner voice, saying “Go for IT!” and boy, it WENT. The awesome Erin over at Angelo Mendi   not only gave me one heck of a head massage (“who needs Vicodin with services like this!”) but generously shaped my new do for free.  Super Classy. Seriously, there were moments as the locks fell around like autumn leaves that I felt myself traveling across time zones.CIMG0548

And Tah Dah!

Here is not the “NEW ME” but the OLD ME with a NEW LOOK that today,The finished look

is just different…which is always initially uncomfortable, right?

Funniest Reaction so Far: ‘Maybe now you won’t have to auction off your car to get a husband like the 38 year old in Utah”

My response: “I’m only 30, right now I am giving away Snack Taxis. They just seem sexier.”

What NEW LOOK do you want or need in your life?
