I was busy last week, so I didn’t participate in The Vintage Apple‘s Oh, How Pinteresting! Wednesday. This week, I had totally forgotten about it until I saw where Cindy had posted hers. Looking for some inspiration for my theme for this week, I thought I’d see what she had to share.
After looking at her post, I knew what my theme would be: I’m STILL brooding over my bad haircut. All of these pins come from the Curly Hair Problems blog.

And it did!
Here’s why you can’t do that:
Or in my case, a curly helmet. So now I’m back to growing it out again. In the meantime, if I see you and you have great-looking curly hair, watch out.
Well, I’ll more likely ask you who cuts your hair because I’m in the market for a great stylist. (I had an excellent one a few years ago who made my long mop look good – because I couldn’t be talked into anything else at the time. Sadly, she died of cancer.)
I’m open to any advice you can give me about waiting out the growth of a bad haircut… For now, I’m considering dying my hair orange because I could so easily do this:
