Hair Yesterday, Gone Today

I just couldn't take it anymore. See this picture of me and Bezzie? She looks cute. Me, not so much with that lion's mane. I have been growing my hair out for a long time - since Willow was less than a year old... but honestly, I don't enjoy it. It looks great when it is wet and I have just put gel on it... but then it grows in volume throughout the day.



So... now? It looks like this:

Willow and Jo

Here's a better view (my arms are short and I could only get the camera so far away from our heads in that last shot). Now do you see how curly my hair is? Any doubt where Willow gets hers from?

New hairdo

Willow asked me to take this picture of her and her bear. I snuck the bonsai in.

Willow and Bonsai

Here is a better picture of the bonsai. We gave this to my FIL for Christmas two years ago and I think maybe this is the first year it has bloomed.

Bonsai azalea

And while we are discussing azaleas, here is a nifty striped on from the garden. I'm really not sure what causes the random stripe (because not all blooms have it), but it looks cool:

Oh my gosh! It's adorable! I love it!

I've always been so jealous of people with real curl. If I'm lucky, I can coax mine into rumpled and wavy.

Super cute. You look fresh and summery. That bonsai doesnt look real. Neat

Elizabeth said...

I love your new haircut. Very becoming! My daughter gave me that same bonsai last year. Alas, it made it through the winter but is slowly losing all its leaves now. So sad!

Eilidh said...

FABULOUS cut, my dear! You look wonderful!

Zonda said...

Love your haircut! Oh, how I know that must be cooler on your neck too! Beautiful bonsai!

Nell said...

Wow- What a change! I love it! You're so cute!!!

Disco said...

Your new do makes you look younger and prettier. Congrats on a great cut. I've been growing mine for about 3 years now. When it gets long enough for locks of love, I'm getting it short, short, short again. Can't wait.

Your bonsai is magnificent. Beautiful.

Bezzie said...

I'm so honored to be included with Willow as one of your hair co-models! :-) I think it looks really good. I would have cut it off earlier though--before that nasty heat wave! Ha ha!

And I love the random stripe azalea. If I were an azalea, I think I'd have a random stripe too.

Kathy said...

Twins!!!!! Your hair is wonderful. Did you use too much shampoo the first wash?????? Let it free, let it be, it is gorgeous. Ive got the blah straight hair...

Batty said...

Oh, so cute! Now you have the mom/daughter haircut thing going, and it's just adorable.

Jo said...

You all are making me blush! Andrew and Willow both love it - and I was amazed at how much less time my shower too this morning.

Teri said...

Now you and Jaime could be twins! She has a very similar cut. It looks great!

Hi Jo
I like your new hairdo! It looks great for summer!
Are you enjoying the heat now? Remember how hot and humid the Japanese summer was??

freshisle said...

Shan said...

So cute! I love it!

Beverly said...

Your hair is lovely! I just had mine cut to about the same length as yours, but mine is thin and straight. I envy your beautiful curls.

Andi said...

LOVE the new 'do!! It frames your face nicely and we see your eyes, not your hair! And how cool, for summer!

kemtee said...

Diggin' the new do. It's absolutely perfect for you. Totally shows off your lovely face.
