Jamie Lee Style

As you can see from my photos I have cut my hair. This made for a quick transition to mostly natural color hair for me. I can honestly say that I have patience issues. Once that silver started really coming in I was ready to have it be there completely and cutting was the solution. I had good intentions of going through this while keeping my hair in a bob but....oh well. Here I am now. Short. VERY short. I like it but look forward to a couple month's growth. It still has a smidge of color on the tips but that will be a matter of one more hair cut in a month or so. Now that my hair is short and silver it's time to get serious about a long and lean body!! Wish me luck!

Hair Cut

I had a strong urge to get my hair cut this week so I gave in to it and called for an appointment. I think that my desire for this transition period to hurry up prompted that urge in a big way. Change is happening with my hair, but very slowly and since I am no longer coloring, which was always a way to get a quick change, the only thing I can do now is get a hair cut and change the style. Originally I had the plan to have a half inch a month cut off the bottom and keep the same one length bob. When I went to the salon I asked for a half inch off the bottom plus maybe some light layers. Well, I think about an inch plus came off the bottom and I wouldn't exactly call it light layers. I am not sure if I'm happy with my decision but thankfully, hair grows and right now I am in the growing groove. My gray hair is coming in and the heavy highlights that were done back in May have lightened substantially so the line of demarcation is not too heinous yet. But I have a feeling it's going to be pretty soon. I fight the urge to just cave and cut my hair super short to hasten my transition to "au nateurel", and that may still happen eventually, but my vanity is still strong enough, for now anyway, to keep some length to it. So on I shall grow!!

Three Months

It has now been 3 months since my last overall color job.
Here I am with my hair pulled back in a ponytail, my usual hairdo of late during the hot summer days, and my silvers are slowly but surely making their presence known. I recently had the opportunity to be around most all of my family and many friends at a Fourth of July gathering and the feedback I received was fairly positive and encouraging. I am still a little nervous about the end result but more so about if I will be able to keep my hair this length and style. I am not interested at all in coloring it again as I am resolute in my decision to go natural, but forging through the transition without going real short and cutting off the old colored parts once my natural hair is a few inches long still remains to be seen. I will be back soon with more photos of the progress.
