Wasn’t easy but here is the new me?


This new makeover cost me a fortune. Why, well…..first I joined a makeover site to figure out my style and color and came up with this—-( Those are my new glasses too. My eyes are doing ok and thanks to so many of you for asking)

avatarannashortblondeand the above is what I came up with( from the makeover site) but that’s not even remotely how it turned out. It was so bad that I didn’t even take a picture of it. When it all started, I looked like this:

anna-for-avatars2-004 in the past year, I’ve also looked like this—


or this and yes, it’s all this year—told you I like change and my hair grows really really fast—

anna-glassesMy hair has been this length twice in the past year. All I can tell you is that I’ve had my hands in a lot of fertilizer.

And today I have decided on this—you just never know with me.

100_8299That’s all I got done today. I went to the beauty shop. I am thankful to Christy at the Aveda VanDavis salon in Winston Salem, NC. She took a look at my hair last week when I was in tears over the first color try. She ask me to come back this week when my hair had a chance to settle down from the first coloring.

Christy recolored all over and then added the chunky hightlights I was looking for from the first photo. Thank you so much Christy as you did exactly what I wanted. I was so impressed that I booked my next appointment with her. When you find someone that good—you stick with them.

    I LOVE it Anna. In fact, I would like it for myself!! Kudos to you for being brave. Changing our hair is a very big thing, isn’t it?
    I like change so it wasn’t so hard to make the decision but the outcome was very hard to achieve. After a couple of visits to a different salon, I got what I wanted. Thank you!


  2. You look fabulous, Anna, but the main thing is you’re happy with it. It’s not fun to be upset with hair, although I’m in a state of irritation with mine most of the time. Maybe I’ll have to go crazy and do something different too. With my luck though it would turn green, or something. 🙂
    If I had tried to fix it after the first go round–it would have turned green. It was a test in patience to wait till the next appointment for the fix. I felt like a light bulb shining for all to see. EEEEk. Thank you.

    I don’t know how I missed so many posts! Your new do is fabulous!
    Cause I sometimes post too much. I am just so excited to show everything. I’m about the most open person on earth. I’m surprised I haven’t shared my most recent trip to get unmentionables. Thank you.

    The new cut and colour are terrific, you look younger and very chic! I know when we go to a hairdressers we place ourselves in somebody elses hands entirely and the number of times I have come home and washed out a style ‘created’ for me!
    I was nervous but feeling adventurous. I was pretty sure I’d like the cut but the color had to be redone. I very much like the second attempt and booked my followup already. Thank you so much.
