Ta-Da! Makeover Magic

The girls at the Oak St. Salon did a heck of job in my opinion! My hair dresser Kim felt so bad when she cut my hair but she shouldn’t have. See, I told her to cut it off, of course after the pressure of everyone saying cut it off;) Anyways, it was after the cut when I broke down. It was so short and it was what I asked for but it was hard for me to come to terms with it.

After about an hour of crying, me and Kim decided I needed a small break to gather my thoughts and just breathe. That’s when I make the quick video. Once we got started again, I cried a little on and off but finally calmed down during the caramel highlights. And then once they started stylin’ it, I just closed my eyes and waited.

When I opened them, I was looking for me because I sure didn’t see ME in the mirror. I was shocked at the difference!! I couldn’t believe how extreme but beautiful it was. It was the first time in my life that I felt hip and pretty. I loved it! It sorta gave me this new confidence.

So thank you to Kim for cutting, stylin’, and dealing with this crybaby! Thank you to Debra, Nandy, and Kristie for helping!  Ya’ll were great!  And of course to Wal-Mart for giving me this opportunity that not only gives me a great profile picture, but has given me a new outlook on myself and what I can accomplish.

Finally, I must thank Kathy for taking the photos.  Exceptional and I’m proud that she’s my Aunt and made me feel comfortable throughout the shoot!! :)
