my hair
aren't you interested in what i'm doing to my hair these days?

i know you are.

i mean, you are sitting around at night, drinking your hot cup of cocoa or tea or coffee (although you really shouldn't be drinking something that caffeinated at this time of night, now should you?) and you are thinking to youself, "man. i am dying to know how virginia is doing her hair these days."

well have no fear... that is what this inane blog entry is about.

i have an awesome hair stylist at my church. i mean, she is cool and funky and has a different hair color nearly every week. she has done my hair before, and i love her to death. (shameless plug: if you need a new stylist, check her out at the salon in the galleria- her name is kari ann.)

anyways, so i had mentioned to her that i needed my hair done- i wanted to perk it up. i decided i wanted to do some chunky-ish highlights.

well, being the insane person that i have become, i had not planned the time for her to do it before thanksgiving.

so i got a wild hair tonight (hee hee ha ha- wasn't that a great pun) and decided to just do it myself.

so i recut my bangs and highlighted my hair.

i'm pretty darn happy with the results.

sure... there's some blotchiness here and there and next time, kari ann will definitely be getting my business, but it worked in a pinch. :)

(please ignore the weird expression on my face & the lack of makeup.)

Hair looks good. You are one brave chica! To go on an adventure to include upside down roller coaster with Monique and now to do your own hair. Phew! Got locked into Heroes too. Couldn't help it.;)
