Short Hairdo

I got my haircut today.  Ed went with me to the hair salon.  He was great support and felt right at home because they were playing 80’s music in the background.  Nothing better – especially to Ed – than getting your haircut to Lionel Ritchie.

No tears were shed.  I wasn’t even really nervous.  I think I have talked myself through it so much that I was fairly ready. It is short and darker.  All the highlights I paid for are gone.  Oh well.  But Ed and I both actually like it (and Gracie too).  It’s a nice change and a good transition to baldness…for me and for everyone else.  So without further ado, here are some before, during, and after pictures.  Enjoy.  Hope you like it.


Oh Boy!

    As I stated on Ed’s Facebook it is cute as can be… the darker look is great.. really… i would stress to see my hard earned highlites on the ground much more than the long stands for sure…it is so cute.

    NOW… let’s talk about your stylist? Where did you go? I expecterd to see you with a funky intown gal.. maybe a piercing or two….

    OK, this is a strange place to post my first comment after reading through your entire set of blogs, Meredith, but WOW!! That cut looks fantastic!! As Dawn stated above, you look “sassy” in addition to young and hip. Very cool. Keep it even after you beat this thing. 🙂

  9. It looks fabulous on you!

  10. Beth Couch says:

    Oh, my gosh, Meredith, it’s fabulous!! Very trendy…very chic…you look so cute. Your hairdresser is going to be covered up with new business!

  11. OMG – I love it! You look great and Gracie is so freakin cute.

  12. Stacey Shekerow says:

    You look amazing – you have a GREAT face for short hair – I knew you would! Mark loves it as well! And take it from me, if you decide to stay with the short hair after all of this, you can still highlight it as blonde as you want – my stylist has done it for years!

  13. Stunning! You always have been and always will be! 🙂

  14. Love it Meredith!! You are smokin’ hot!

  15. Toby and Carter says:

    You look adorable!

  16. You look awesome Meredith!

  17. Welcome to the short-hair club! Looks really cute and hip!
    Since I have had short hair for so long… I am happy to share some of my favorite “goops” with you. One that I have used for quite a while and smells amazing is OSIS “Thrill”, and another one that I have recently started using was RUSK DEFINE. I like it because it comes in a tube and is a little less messy. I think your hair is fine like mine and both of these are pretty lightweight. Have a wonderful Easter week!
