Refresher, she did this:

Well shortly after telling everyone about her and raving about her, she busted up her shoulder and is no longer able to do hair.

I’ve been in mourning. Unable to face another stylist search. That is until yesterday. By chance I walked into a funky salon in a very eclectic part of town looking for a particular curl creme for the moosh. We were headed off to have her haircut cut at one of those chain places when I asked if anyone there was good at curly cuts.

Why yes there is and she’ll be here at one.


As I paid for the moosh’s new do I asked “What about me?”

How about 4:15 tomorrow?


This morning?

September Before

Even great haircuts die hard, horrible, tragic deaths.

This evening?

September After

I have finally embraced what my natural curl allows me to do and what it keeps me from having to do (like curl my entire head of hair, instead I just have to curl the top layer. Sweet.)

Nicole @ Alchemy Art + Aesthetics did moi.

Aynie hooked the moosh up.

  1. YAY! Having someone who can cut curls makes ALL the difference in the world.

  2. oh my…

    you are just a hottie!!

    Biddys last blog post..just…blah

  3. I’m echoing what others have already asked – what products were used in your hair for this styled bliss and what curl creme do you use on the Moosh?

    What can I say – I’m a product fanatic!


  4. You look great!

    The Moosh is lucky to have a mom who can teach her to care for her curls.

    It took me a LONG time to embrace my natural curl. Or even use a styling product! My mom’s hair is straight as can be. I don’t think I figured it out until I was 25.

  5. Holy cow lady! Can you be any more gorgeous? πŸ™‚
    We know right where your daughter gets it! πŸ˜‰
    Can I come visit you and get my hair done there? I have some natural curl, but it NEVER looks that good! Do they teach you how to style it, too?

  7. YAY!!! (I preface this comment by saying that I have naturally curly hair and embrace it.)

    I LOVE your curly “do”!!! I need to know what curl product you use. Pretty please!!

    p.s. Hope this makes you chuckle: When I saw the title of the post in my google reader I thought this was a fertility post. Ha ha…follicular….

  8. It would almost be worth driving to Indy to have my hair done. You look amazing! I really love the darker red and the curl. My miracle is finally scheduled to happen this coming Tuesday. I’m a little nervous to lose so much. But, I swear, I’m going through with it. Can’t wait to show you pictures!

  9. Wow, I love the curly do! I’m always trying to encourage our naturally curly girls here in the office to embrace the curl. And in your middle picture, it’s the same look I had a year ago when I got a bad cut from someone who was supposedly a professional.

  10. Curly envy…seriously…coming from a half-wavy, half-straight girl whose main follicular question is…”Down or pony tail today?!” Has Fountain Square revitalized? There’s an awesome duckpin place there, that’s all I remember…

  11. you so purty.

  12. I’m jealous! You look great!
