From my hair with love.

Remember when I had long luscious hair that flowed like silk down my back and I fixed it every single day?



Remember when I got my glasses and it became painfully clear that my hair wasn't really all that lucious or silky and that pulling it back in a pony tail was not considered 'fixing it' at all? I also discovered I had grown a beard.


I know you remember this. Right? The bangs. Good Lord the bangs. Well, okay....


maybe, it was more like this. Remember how I couldn't stop talking about those bangs?

Then I went and got my hair cut again and forgot all about posting pictures of me with my new style.

And that's just silly, because this blog is allllll about me, myself and I.

It's just that I feel so wonderful and free with my new cut and the six or eight or however many inches I had chopped off has given me a renewed lease on life and I've been flitting around town like a little bird. Flit, flit. Flutter, flutter. Tweet, tweet.

Who knew that hair could weigh a person down so much?

I'm a new person.

Gone is the serious Olivia with no smile.

Gone is the scruffy Sawyer with a scraggly pony tail.

I'm the best haired April I've ever been.

I mean the layers in my hair alone have brought out the body and bounce that my head has been missing all these long, dreary, big-bangs months.

Are you ready to see the new April?

Yes?

My friend, prepare yourself.....











I KNOW!!!! I'M GORGEOUS!!!!


See how my stylist incorporated my big bangs into my new cut? I feel absolutely radiant.


Please don't hate me because I'm beautiful.

LOL!
The thought occurred to me that some of your devoted readers might actually be TOO YOUNG to even know who FF is! I mean, that was the 70's for cryin' out loud!

Mama DB said...

April said...

Lori Anne! I don't know this FF that you speak of, clearly those are pictures of me. I'm too sexy for my skateboard!

carsick said...

DO you remember the oil of olay commercials where she said Don't Hate Me Beacuse I'm Beautiful? Was that Sophia Loren? We used to laugh because we thought she was butt ugly. Your don't hate me reminded me of that.
You look much better than FF I don't know how she kept her eyes open with all that crap on them.

Lori Anne said...

Of course it is! My bad! So sorry. I totally forgot we were in April-land... :)

Wanda said...

April- you are too funny not to get paid for it... you should go on the road, "April on Tour"...

Molly said...

Linda said...

You may start a trend ... seriously. Are you bringing back the clothing too? I dare ya!

Sharon said...

You do realize she looks like a dried up raisin now. I am not sure you should be striving to be associated with her or her hair. ;)

Rhea said...

You goofball! I have a feeling you're gonna be pretty popular now...

Jenni said...

Just stay away from the illegal substances, okay? We don't want you to show up stoned out of your gourd and babbling nonsense on Letterman. Especially not if you still have that gun that Charlie issued to you.

I got my hair cut yesterday, and I've been thinking of posting a pic. I always have trouble getting decent pictures of myself, though, and the results are not much better when someone else is holding the camera. Maybe I'll try your method of showing off my new haircut. It looks more like Sabrina's.

Jenni said...

Sabrina Duncan, the more serious, less flitty angel. Hair as seen in bottom picture here:

I always liked Kate Jackson in The Scarecrow and Mrs. King, too.

Melody said...

ROFLOL!

Andi said...

You are SO beautiful with your new 'do! Who the heck is FF, and what do they mean about Letterman? And who's Kate Jackson?

Just kidding....Seriously, when do we get to see real pics of the real you?

This DVM's Wife's Life said...

April you are beautiful. Oh, I just found my glasses, you are really not that beautiful, Farah is. Ha Ha! Lisa in N. Calif.

Cycle Mom said...

Molly, I remember those Nikes. You are the only chick I knew then who actually ran in them.

I'm digging your form on the skateboard and, of course, how every hair is in place.

You must stop being so funny - I do my blog reading late at night and I think I heard someone stirring after I laughed loudly out loud!

Tina. said...

you had me going tooooooo .... i thought we'd actually get to seeeeeee this 30$ "do". i'm getting ready to go back to dying my own hair (except now it's with permanent dye, thanks to many additional grays) to save $$ on the on going monthly bills until this financial thing blows over. i'm a bit worried it will be scary!! :)

Cynthia said...

you look fabulous, Farrah. er, April.


Last night I watched THe Hardy Boys tv series on Netflix. They were in Hollywood and Frank walked onto the set of Charlie's Angels, by mistake, and kissed Jaclyn Smith.

I think I might have swooned a little when he did. LOL

Jules said...

I didn't know you could skateboard. You are the bomb-diggety...oh and the hair looks fabulous. The retro look is sooo in.

So, tell the truth. Are you scared? Come on...show us the real thing....come on. Don't be scared. I bet you look fabulous... just like Farrah.

Joy said...

The suspense is killing me! You know the more you build it up... the higher expcations we'll have and it's really better just to get it over with and show us the new do.
