beautifying complete ...

besides the fact that i'm not the best self-portrait taker in the world and i'm squinting because of the glorious sunshine, can you see anything wrong with this picture?? it could be that my t-shirt is washing me out ... the color isn't vibrant enough, or it could be that i have no make-up on and you can see EVERY blemish on my face, or maybe it's that my hair isn't EVEN!?
one more side-effect from the beauty college. my day of beauty just got extended! i was fixing my hair this morning and couldn't get my curls to even out ... and then pulled the hair straight to eyeball and see if they were cut evenly and um ... it was about a half inch off - oops! i made a call to the beauty college and they scheduled me for 3:30 today and i went in. the instructors always like for the girls to fix their own mistakes (learning tool) and so my appt. was with the same girl ... but she had left early and so i got another girl. she noticed right away what was wrong. she offered to shampoo and condition - and who turns that down?! back in her chair she asked if i just wanted it evened up or if there was anything else that i wanted done - i asked her to cut it all about an inch shorter so that my natural curl could 'do it's thing' and she went for it! i really like it ... it's not exactly what i had in mind, but that's mostly due to my hair not cooperating. having kids did a number on my natural curl! but i think it's darling ... and shoot - it'll grow back!

(still can't take a very good self-portrait ... but here's the end result!)

Your hair IS much curlier when it's short. Now we just need to experiment with product.

We should have a lesson on self photos, I'm a freakin' professional.
