New Trimester, New 'Do

So, depending on where you look different sources claim you're in your second trimester anywhere between 12 and 14 weeks. My OB mentioned I should hold off on coloring my hair until the second trimester, and I decided being 12 weeks and change was close enough, so I colored my hair. This time I got way closer to the red color I'm aiming for, although my phone-camera refuses to pick it up. Just trust me, my hair is pretty red.

Then yesterday I decided to get my hair cut. With the wedding, the move, the pregnancy, life in general it had been a while since I had my hair cut. Like, to the point where my split ends had developed split ends. It was sad, really.

And although I still want to let my hair grow out, I decided to do something pretty drastic. I had been considering it for a while, so it wasn't a rash decision. But it wasn't until I was actually in the chair that I made the final decision.

I got bangs.

I hadn't had bangs since I was like 4 (yeah - like 2 decades ago!), so I was pretty nervous about it. My hair dresser said we would start off with thin bangs so if I hated it, it would be easier to grow them out. And, drum roll please....

I really like it! It'll definitely take some getting used to; when I see my reflection I kinda feel like I joined the witness protection program and they gave me a wig. But, its a nice wig and I'm a totally cute witness (if I do say so myself).

So...what do you think? Don't be afraid to say you don't like it, I'm a big girl, lol. And I'd really like some opinions before I get thicker, more Zoey Deschannel (love her) -esque bangs!

Until next time...


  1. I love it! I have never died my hair and I have always had the same hair style: long and straight. I would love to do something like this, but I am terrified that I won't like it!

  2. It looks great! Love the bangs, wish I had the guts to do it!

  3. I think you look super cute with bangs! I like the way they are now, but now that you've already taken this step with bangs; thicker bangs would look great too!

  4. ooh! I love it! It's super cute!

  5. It looks so good! Love the bangs.


I always love getting some blog love...
