A funny thing happened on my way to the mechanics... A.K.A. Confession Time

Remember not too long ago when I went out to lunch with a few of my best bloggy buds - had a little salad and a lot of laughs... remember that???

Whatever - it was fun, and if you weren't one of those that was able to come you missed out (maybe next time).
What I'm getting at is that following that little meet-up I popped by Tauna's blog and she had the Nicest things to say... the one that had me laughing was "watch out Pantene commercials cuz here she comes" - in regards to my luscious head of hair... Ooops, now she has outed me because I feel like a liar when I don't tell the truth (and because she'll certainly find out by this weekend!)

So, here's photographic evidence of the Pantene commercial worthy hair... well, in the first photo at least!
The other two photos show you the naked truth... It's not mine... I don't think I could STAND my hair being that long in this 90 degree weather!!! (and for the record - the Teenaged T snapped the photos with my new-ish camera... too impatient... these teens can't even let auto-focus do its job!)

The clip-in hair is affectionately referred to as my "Phony-tail" and I just pull back my own hair into a tiny little barely can get it into pony tail before clipping on the magic. It's great for bad hair days or a spy mission perhaps?

So what does this all have to do with my mechanic? Well, let me tell you - I was a little bit late (read as illegally late) in getting my car inspected and registered... and since my regular car guy decided not to call me back I ended up at the local Grease Monkey... which just happens to be next to a salon...

So all those blondish highlights? Yeah, this time it's not just me playing with my temporary highlight tubes... this time they're staying! Makes it a little hard to pull off the Phony-tail with any modicum of believability - but I walked out of there feeling 20 pounds lighter and 5 years younger. "Sassy" even...

Watch out world - here I come... and who knows, I could have long hair or short... depending on the day :)

I was reading the Avon catalog today, and they now sell these fake clip on hair pieces. I think I need one.

Cute hair! Excited to see what fake things you'll pull off at the CBC!

Love the new 'do'. I don't think I could pull of clip-on hair, do you?

I am dying to cut my hair short like that, but then I am worried that I will be sorry I can't pull it back during the heat of the summer. Such a konundrum.

B-E-A-UTIFUL!!! I love it!!! I wish I could pull off the no bangs look, but then I'd look 10 years older. Boooo! But you look adorable...even out of focus!

Charlotte said...

I have been very tempted to try one of those. Very cool that they look real enough to fake it.

Enjoy the highlights, though, I love getting that done to my hair.

Hey as you saw, I kept my LIPS sealed!!! I stuck by your fake hair and you.

hehehe

I love the new hair do' though! CBC will be so fun!

Wow... what's next in the string of lies, deceit, and mid-life crisis moments? A new red convertible? Fake tattoos? Butt-enhancement surgery? Someone needs an intervention. ;)

A phony tail? That would be nice. Every once in awhile I want to cut my hair more than just my standard one inch, but then I put it in a pony tail and think I just can't bear to get rid of all that:)

LC said...

Cute hair. The highlights look great!

Cute hair T! My friend at school bought the cutest wig, for when she doesn't want to do her hair!

PS missed lunch? :)

Did I tell you my hairdresser accidently gave me a lesbian haircut and the short hair you saw was EIGHT weeks growth? It sucked. Not even a phony-tail could help.
