Blue Steel

So after sitting on the couch for 2 months, my hair kind of got forgotten. So I woke up on Wednesday morning and decided it was time to get my hair highlighted! Yeah for me. It's not that easy to find someone last minute to do you hair.
I LOVE my hair. BUT I would not recommend her to ANYONE! I don't know how safe it would be. I think I just might have gotten lucky. This is how my conversation went with her:
Jen: "So how long have you worked here"

Beauty Barn Lady: "Today is my first day"

Jen: (concerned, but not showing it) "Wow, that's fun... Where did you work"

BBL: "Actually I haven't done hair for over 2 years. I was living in a small town and working at the gas station."

Jen: "Ohh..." (really what do you say to that)

BBL: Before that I worked at Regis in the mall. (Which wasn't comforting, because that was the ONE place that I was instructed by Kiera NOT to go).

Jen: (about 10 minutes later) "I don't think I will be able to get my hair cut tonight, because I am short on time."

So yes, that was a close call. Who knows maybe she would have surprised me, but I wasn't taking any chances. Not with my hair. Not this time.
Here is the outcome. I like to call it Blue Steel. I learned how to make all of my model moves from watching Zoolander. And if anyone watches Zoolander and finds it completely inappropriate, just remember I fastforwarded all the bad parts... or at least that's what I'm telling you.

Who's that Hot Sexy Mama... Oh oh it's me!

Close up on the color. This pose is La Tigre...Here is my full body pose, I cropped out the rest of my body, so that my friends wouldn't be jealous. When you are as totally good looking as I am, you have to be kind and remember those that aren't.

I seriously love the hair. Love the poses. They're each so unique.

Meg said...

So beauty barn lady DID do the color? It looks very nice! Who was your photographer? I seriously think you may be getting some phone calls for a modeling career.

Love the hair. Your poses add just that much more to your whole look. You should do it more often.

Also, I think the second pic should be the one you use for your profile on FB. Just saying.
