New Hair!

5:02 PM

Hey everyone! If this entry seems at all hyped up, it is because I have just narrowly escaped the frightening grasp of 5 giant honeybees that were on the INSIDE of the window of the very room I am typing in. They were spaced out so that I couldn't swat or contain one without disturbing the others in a mass killing frenzy. I don't know about you guys but I have a totally irrational and inappropriate fear of bees and wasps. I have nightmares about gargantuan ones landing on my neck, trying to kill me. I literally called my dad and had him drive over to my apartment (don't freak, only 1 block away) with some bug-zapping spray while I shouted from the living room.

Dad 5, Bees 0. My dad is a superhero.

ANYWAY, this newfound adrenaline rush has inspired me to share with you my new haircut. As promised, here is the new hair. It was inspired by these two photos:

Korean pop singer Ayumi

Ashley Olsen

I really wanted lots of shorter layers but keeping the length I had the same. My goal is to grow my hair out really crazy long with lots and lots of layers like the adorable Chinese and Japanese models. I have a lot of hair so even thinned out with layers it is still pretty full compared to Ayumi and Ashley but it's okay, I've learned to live with it. :)

Here is my hair right after getting it cut. It has no styling done to it. Still long but a little edgier and a LOT lighter-feeling.

And here is my hair after I curled it for Easter.

With "Japanese curls" style:

I'm pretty happy with it so far. Mainly it feels so much better. The damaged ends were cut off and my hair is soft and shiny. A good haircut indeed. :)

Oh, I also wanted to show you guys my mom's nails. I stayed home from work on Monday because I wasn't feeling well so she came over and I gave her a nice, simple konadicure. I used the rose pattern from GCOCL plate C02 with my favorite Sally Hansen chrome polish in pink pearl over Zoya Paris.

Pretty combination of colors, no? I thought it looked pretty classy. I was going to post SOOOO much more, but this has already been long-winded so maybe next time. I'm once again way backed up on photos and things I need to post so don't be surprised if my hair is at all lengths. :P

Pretty sure I gotta go eat dinner now so until next time~

    I just recently got a haircut too, same place as my last haircut because I liked how they cut my layers. Sadly, I forgot to mention to keep the length the same but a lot of layers, so now my hair is soo short. With a ton of layers. Going to have to grow it out again. >.<

    I was wondering if you would do a tutorial on hair curling?
    Your curls are always so cute and flawless!!

    My parents would probably just tell me to stop being ridiculous and kill them myself! Dx

  20. ning*star: yes, I did! You can see closer pics if you look up "crystallizing" in the labels. :)

    emily, CathyT: yes, I will try to do a hair curling video tutorial soon!

    fourxseasons: I got the dress from Pacsun. The brand is O'Neill. I think I wrote about buying it a couple of posts back. I really love it!

    Anonymous: I can sure do a post on prom makeup. Is there a certain color you'd like?


  21. Hey Jen,

    Your hair looks so pretty!
    I really like all the layers. It's a good way to change up your hairstyle instead of cutting it all off.

    I was wondering if you will ever do a post about primer. That would be awesome!

  22. Wow, you really rock the Japanese curls!

  23. Your new haircut is very cute. I have a question. In your blog header, what heels are you wearing? Thanks.

  24. coool!! :) vert pretty

  25. Re: Jen (Prom Make Up)

    im chinese and im thinking of getting a green dress. so you can do anything pretty much cause i dont have any ideas on me yet.

  26. Anonymous 1: Awww, thanks! I really love layers. It brings more life to hair, I think.

    What kind of primer did you want a review of? Foundation? Eyeshadow? Everything? I really only have Urban Decay Primer Potion and occasionally use the Monistat anti-chafing gel but I can always do reviews of those. :)

    Anonymous 2: I'm wearing heels by Linea Paolo from last year. They were my bling bling wedding shoes.

    Anonymous 3(prom): Maybe I will do a generic prom smoky eye. Brown, olive, grey, or even purple should go well.
