Fun with Photoshop and Hair

12 08 2008

I wanted to post something fun today. I love Photoshop and thought my readers would get a kick out of seeing what I take to my hair stylist. He gets excited to see what I’ll bring in each time! These aren’t the most perfect Photoshop renderings, but remember it was just for me. Not intended to be on a blog a year later.

Here is my original shot. (This is right after giving birth… so please excuse the puffiness!)

This is me on Meg Ryan’s head! I love her hair… mmm maybe with more layers I could look like this?

My hair is curly… let’s see what I’d look like if I didn’t cut layers, let it grow out and dry natural. You can see I’m playing around with going darker. No… I want something different.

How about going really short? Ewww… too round of head. Hair stylist agreed. I look like Melanie Griffith! ha! Maybe when I’m 50.

Just in case you were thinking… no I like this look. Check out the real person that goes with this head, actress Ashley Scott. Her long face and big gorgeous features make this cut look great. Now look back at mine and you’ll say ewwww too! ha.

So what was the verdict? I decided to keep the same cut and go brunette!! What a change. Yes, that’s me on the right with sis-in-law and silly nephew. It took forever to get back to my original color. So for now I’m staying blonde. One of these days I’ll go back to the dark side!


Hair Cut

4 07 2008

I just started cutting my kiddo’s hair myself. I must say, I’ve been doing a pretty great job up until today! Okay, here is the front dew… Looks good huh? He’s so cute, I LOVE this photo of him. This is his natural smile which I hardly ever catch on camera.

Now, here is the back.

Whoops!!! See the strip of baldness? I wasn’t thinking and forgot to put the little shield on the clippers and buzzed a line up his head! I freaked out at first, but after cutting the rest, it turned out okay. I’m sure by next week, it will have grown out. At least he doesn’t seem to care. He likes to feel it, thinks it’s cool. Maybe I should do another strip on the other side and it will look like I meant to do it? ha!

Below is a photo from later that day. They were dancing to a hooked on phonics song while I cleaned out sissy’s closet. Good times! They were doing something with the diaper boxes too. It’s fun to watch them play nice. Tonight we taught sissy how to get what she wants from big bro… She says “Please Mr. Wonderful?” He thinks that is so cute that he gives her whatever it is right away. Of course it sounds more like “Pees, mia wonful?”

Notice she is wearing pull up diapers! Yes, she has started peeing in the potty regularly. Only when I ask her though, she doesn’t tell me when she has to go. But she has been telling me when she has to poop! It saved one of my friends having to clean a “floater” out of her pool. She won’t go on the potty though. Bummer.
