Pixie cut and giveaway

About 5 years ago I had my hair very short and I swore blind Id never do it again. But I get to the stage in my hairiness where it just needs lobbing right off.
Mark doesn't like me with short hair but it wasn't to spite him. It was just to refresh or perhaps renew. Or maybe affirm my mid life crisis. He is getting used to it now though, although my relief did come by the way of Ellie who clasped her hands together with glee. **melt, melt**
This pic was taken on Saturday, when I got back from the cut. Happy to say the filter on this photo finish makes me look way younger than, cough cough, forty. I still hate typing that number - its rude!
Its pixie-ish one side and kind of bobbed the other. Its freakishly weird in one sense, and cut beautifully in the next breath. I get gasps from the people that know me in this area - possibly from the shock of the red, to be fair! But its growing on me (litereally!....heeeee) and will only take a year to grow it back to my normal, safe "mom" bob style.

By the way, I have a giveaway.
I forgot to mention it with the post below so I'm mentioning it now. Remember the fancy schmancy video I did with the letrajet? Well I'm giving away a letrajet air brush system (just the system, not the air cannister, but they are relatively cheap to buy) for you to attach to your Promarkers. You can't use it without a Promarker, just warning. I'll announce the winner on Friday so you have plenty of time to leave a comment.

Tomorrow I have another video to share of Promarker uses plus toning and shading. I know some of you know how to do it but I want to share how I do it with just the one colour as opposed to two or three. I'm even going to use the blender tool.....with all of its magicalness.

New hair looks great!
I had to do the unthinkable early this year and sell, yep sell my promarkers, I had quite a large collection but this bill (urgh) came in and I needed money pronto so they were a guarantee sell (no surprising)
I am now starting to rebuild a little collection so the prize will mean I can do more with the few I have.
Thanks for the Opportunity

I think your new cut is lovely! I think the chances of me winning this are tiny, but it would be great with my wonderful promarker candy!

Hi Kirsty,
my husband hates me with short hair too! I hate his snoring so maybe I'll go short to spite him?
Would love to win anything!
Looking forward to your dish too, if it's anything like your mincemeat Jilly will fall off her chair whilst having a mouthgasm

Absolutely gorgeous haircut, Kirsty - suits you so well too. I love short hair, but mine grows so fast it's pointless and I have to keep it in a mum bob!!!

I've been trying to work out who you look like in that picture and i've finally remembered. It's that doctor Pixie McKenna from Embarrasing bodies. I love her hairstyle too. Just wish I was a little braver to say sod it and lop it all off xXx

Anonymous said...

oh,love the cuteness of the pixie-high-jinks cut.....funnily enough,my hairdressers been trying to train my hair to that style for a coupla months now-funny she hasnt noticed that I hack at it with nail scissors cos I cant cope with the "growing out of layers" stage....she thinks my hair actually does grow that unevenly....bless her!
unevenly cut love to the Curlygirl
