new haircut

A week ago I got a (long overdue) haircut. As usual I let my hairdresser do mostly what she wanted - otherwise I think I`d always have the same cut. This time I only told her about the fringe I`d been thinking about, and she worked from there.


BEFORE:





And I love it! I even love the failed dye job. My hair was meant to be a dark chocolate brown, not strong coffee blackish brown, but either the hairdresser mixed the dye wrong or we just chatted for too long when I had the dye in my hair... Anyway, I wouldn`t have dared to choose the colour myself but like it a lot.


AFTER:





It`s funny how a new haircut makes you feel like you could be someone else for a while (or at least it makes me feel that way - maybe I`m a bit silly). I think that my hair could belong to someone way cooler than I am, maybe a dj who has tattoos and draws a comic. Now I totally don`t know where that came from, but either way, new hair makes me feel somehow new altogether for a few days. Yes, I`m that shallow.

My friend J was at hairdresser`s (another hairdresser) at the exact same time as I - no, we didn`t plan it. Afterwards we met for a coffee and gushed over each other`s hair. I think J`s hair is pretty cool too, too bad I didn`t take a photo of him too! I think we should`ve gone out to show off our new hairdos, but alas we were too tired and stayed at home watching a movie. Still I think my hair deserves to go out soon... How about a night out, Helsinki peeps?


(Sorry about the photos - I took them myself in bad light and hurry.)

Hei! First, let me tell you that this is my very first comment on a blog. Ever. And yes, I am excited! And I love your new hair!! The color, the cut, the whole package suits you perfectly. Cool hair for a cool person! The only teeny-tiny downside is that I'd been thinking of something similar for me next (apart from the colour - I think I've had enough of my not-so-lucky experiments). Darn :) And yes, I think your new looks definitely deserves a good night out in Helsinki! Just let me know when you're coming over. Hmm..are there any limitations as to how long these comments are allowed to be...? I'd better stop. Hugs and sunny days to Tampere!

Ihana uusi tukka!
Mulla oli hiukan samantapainen malli, pidempänä mutta se on ihan ylikasvanut jo. Pienen ponnarinnykerön saa. Pakko päästä pian itsekkin taas kynittäväksi.

Helena - It seems like we both have extremely good taste! ;) Go ahead and have the hair you want girl! Maybe we could even have similar dresses in different colours... Then we`d surely turn heads. Did you notice that you`ve already been mentioned in this blog? There`s even a picture of you - or, well, your earring. Made me so happy to see your comment. *hali* Looking forward to partying with u.

Minja & Heli - Kiitos! Ajatuksenani on/oli itseasiassa antaa hiusteni kasvaa pikkuisen pidemmäksi kuin mitä ne ovat viime aikoina olleet, mutta saa nähdä maltanko...

Oh you look GREAT! what an adorable hair cut. I also got my hair cut recently, yesterday, and I am feeling like a new person, isn't that a great feeling, love the color too, it suits you so much! Have fun visiting your folks, it looks really nice.

I like your haircut. Im always such a coward and have the same haircut...but sometimes when I want them to cut something new I still always have the same look...

Maria - Thank you! I used to have very long hair and never did anything to it - I was afraid I´d regret dyeing it or cutting it. After about three years of thinking about getting it cut, I finally did, and since then I`ve had a lot more courage to experiment. It doesn`t feel like such a big thing with short hair if you get a new cut and don`t like it after all. But if it was not for my hairdresser, I´d probably have the same cut again and again too - I don`t seem to have much of ideas when it comes to my hair...
