Hair brained schemes ....

Also wore:
Cardie: F+F @ Tesco.
Shoes: M+S
Today has been an all over the place kind of day ... I am still relying on lifts everywhere - which is kind of frustrating .. so had arranged with my father in law to take me to the hairdressers and my dad to pick me up .. however best laid plains and all that ...

My stylist rang me the other day to say there water had been turned off by there neighbours who had gone away and were currently stuck in Shanghai!! So the Salon had no water .. it would be best if she could do my hair at my house .. Okay I said, no problem, so we left it at that - I cancelled my lifts and all was dandy.

Today arrives and I wait for L my hairdresser to arrive .. 2pm comes and goes with no sign of her ... 3pm approaches still no sign .. then I get a phone call .. her sat nav couldn't pick up my postcode or house so she had been driving around lost for an hour and had, had to return to the salon.

Cut a long story short - after several phone calls to different stylists from the same salon (none of whom could get to me) I had to call my dad to come get me to give me a lift!

L managed to dry cut my hair and then applied my colour .. I then had to walk through town back to the car park with my hair dye on and a plastic hair hat -I do in fact have evidence of this but I cant find my cable for my phone :'( .... Maybe for the best ;P

Me with the new do .. I know, I know, it doesn't look all that different - But I know it's a lot shorter and better coloured ;)

Awwww you're awesome, I love it when I read things like this, makes blogging all the more worth it!

I think your hair looks great! I know what you mean about haircuts not being hugely different, same thing with my recent one, but it feels so different and healthier to me, even if other people might not notice it!
