It's Only Hair, Right? RIGHT??!!

Well, let me tell you, Jay's not the only one that can do something drastic in the name of a good cause. In a rash and un-well-thought-out show of solidarity, I decided to chop off all of my hair, too. However, there was no way I would go completely bald. Except now that it is done, I might as well have. Root Watch '09 was starting to cause major problems, I realized, when I accidentally caught a glimpse of myself in mirrors outside of my home yesterday (the ones in my home are carefully vetted magic mirrors).  So, stupid, impetuous me got my hair cut this morning. The good news is I am a giant step closer to getting "back to my roots". The bad news is I look like Napoleon Dynamite. 

So in an effort to boost my rapidly waning self-confidence, I am seeking external validation from the one place I know I can get it (and not actually have to hear the laughs). And I am willing to pay for it! But before you get all giddy, here's what I am going to do...

For every comment (one per person, por favor) telling me what a babe I am (and you don't even have to mean it!), I will donate $0.50 to Jay's head-shaving-cancer-curing fiesta. I may have to cap it, or I may force everyone to actually be honest, if comments surpass available funds (I have kids to put through college, people). We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. 

I guess all that's left is the big reveal...

Oh DEB!! It looks awesome!! And I'm not even kidding. Did you even cut it? I thought this is how it looked already! I'm gonna go back and watch your video now so I can compare styles and maybe I'll come back and comment again because I'm not sure I'll even leave your blog this entire day....I'm just bopping around.
Cancer-curing fiesta huh?? :-)

Rachael said...

i agree, i think it looks awesome too. you look great!

Mariah said...

Ah, me likey. It really looks great! Hot in fact! It's kind of spunky, you know!

Did I mention how hot you are?

Jamiedidit said...

I like it! You look great - I have a case of short hair envy right now. I think I would like it even better with a bit cut off the back layer.

Eudae-Mamia said...

I'm having short-hair envy. And that isn't good, because I have a hair appointment on Saturday. The Oldest will hate me forever if I can't make a pony tail.

Can you get a nubbin' out of that style? Just a few hairs? That's all it will take for me to be right there with you.

I LOVE it!! Super sassy - and Lord knows I know my sass.

Call Me Cate said...

Cute! I would've said so even without the bribe!

Lindsay said...

You so don't look like Napolean Dynamite! I wish I had the patience to pull off a hair style like that, but I'm too low maintenance.

Sheri and George said...

I am a short hair lover and recently went short with mine too. I really like this Deb! It's totally HOT!

Tenakim said...

It does look very cute- actually the look I'm going for, but didn't achieve because Super Cuts sucks! No pass over the cash!

Snarky A. said...

You look gorgeous Deb! I'm totally loving the cut!

Soxy Deb said...

Love it!! You look about 10 years younger. It's amazing what a good haircut can do! You look fahboo!
No lies! Promise!

Young Momma said...

Do I actually have to use the word babe?? LOL

No, honest, I really like it!!! Very cute!!!

Awesome way to give, lady!! How fun. I love what Jay is doing!

ComfyMom~Stacey said...

That haircut looks great on you. Not a thing like Napoleon Dynamite at all.

Tabitha in Bliss said...

Why don't you like it? I think you look purty! Very hot indeed! Dare I even say Hubba Hubba!!

:)

Under the Influence said...

Damn, girl, you are SMOKIN' hot!

Girl Friday said...

I, of course, LOVE it! Don't you find it liberating to lop it all off? I certainly did. WTG! :)

Cheryl said...

Very nice. :-) I'm getting mine cut tonight and am going to post with Hair Dare.

Denise @ Sunflowers, Chocolate and Little Boys said...

I think your new haircut is perfect. And just in time for the warm spring weather. I think what your doing is great, with the donations but even if you werent I would still like your haircut. I have been debating about hacking all my hair off too....now I might have to take that leap... I just hope it turns out cute like yours!

jori-o said...

I think it looks really cute! No, REALLY! You're one hot mama! =)

It's Always Something Around Here said...

Well honestly.....I think it looks awesome!

Vodka Mom said...

you are ONE HOT BABE. And I am NOT just saying that because I've had three martinis on the beach.

I really mean it. you're hot.

Kristina P. said...

You look so chic!

Halftime Lessons said...

Wow, that looks like crap.
There's still time to shave your head.

OF COURSE I am kidding...you look awesome!!

You only partially remind me of Napoleon Dynamite..mostly in personality.

angie said...

It looks great Deb! I don't know why you think it doesn't. I say it's a keeper for sure! :)

Summer said...

Deb, I love it. I think it looks really good. I love shorter hair.

Heather of the EO said...

I'm no good at lying. It sucks.

KIDDING. I'm no good at lying and I loooves it.

The Mom Jen said...

It's gorgeous!!!

Julia@SometimesLucid said...

Deb! I really do think it suits you. Looks great!

Sera said...

Napolean Dynamite, my ASS! I thought you were going to have super short, crazy curly hair like him. NOT SO! You look like a babe. It's fun, it's hip, and I LOVE it!

Missy said...

Really, I love it! And, how nice of you to support Jay! You are an awesome, HOT, lady!

Jenn@mylifewiththecrazies said...

It rocks! YOU Rock! Love it! reminds me that I am not only in the need of a serious haircut BUT a color job myself... starting to look like snow up on the mountain LOL!

Alicia said...

Deb, I came over from Jay's blog. I was expecting something awful by the way you were talking (typing)but I think it looks great! Really!

mommaof4wife2r said...

i'm not gonna lie...you're HOT!

blueviolet said...

WTF?!! You're complaining about that? It looks good, woman!!!

Natalie said...

I love it!! I think you look great with it short. I wish I had the nerve to cut mine off. I've never been without a pony tail.

Samantha said...

Napoleon Dynamite never looked so hot! You look beautiful!

Ann said...

I think you, and your hair, look fantastic!

Harlene said...

You look so HIP!!

Mega Babe!

Christina said...

I agree. You're super chic!

Brenda Jean said...

I love it! Seriously, I'm not just kissing butt. I really like it. One year I had my hair, and I will quote my husband "you butched it". it was THAT short. Yours, on the other hand is stylish and very cool looking:)

Ally said...

I am also totally having short hair envy, but since i have spent six years - count em people - growing mine out, I am lucky that I just got mine cut - she took off three inches and I almost fainted. But I did not look as hot as Deb with that cut!!

Seriously cute!

kisatrtle said...

Can you come over and finish cutting mine. I decided to hack my bangs off while scrapbooking today. I'm not sure I should be alllowed to have scissors. You did a wonderful job.

Becky said...

So jealous, I simply cannot pull off short hair, but you look great!!

Ali said...

I'm here 'cuz Jay ordered me to come over here--he can be such an ass can't he?

Anyhoo, I love the short cut! I had a Halle Berry cut going on in college in an attempt to make me look like her. Didn't work.

MJMILLS said...

Nah you don't look like Napoleon! It looks nice! and i mean it

Jenners said...

You are so cute! And I mean that! And Jay didn't force me to do this because I read your blog before his because I read in alphabetical order. I say go even shorter!!!!!

Honey Mommy said...

I like your haircut! I wish i was brave enough to cut mine shorter!

Leslie said...

You look gorgeous darling! Yay, 50 cents more to cancer research!! Great idea!

stefanie said...

I like it. It makes you look way younger than your 30 years...

Liz (Loving Mom 2 Boys) said...

You are HOT!!! I think the short hair cut looks great on you!!!

The Daily Blonde said...

Mama Kat said...

You look like a beautiful African princess minus the African princess part.

It's lovely...you can totally rock it!

jsprik said...

Bee and Rose said...

I love it! I have been really kicking the short hair idea around the last couple of days and I think you've pushed me over the edge! It's really cute and sassy!

Tabitha Blue/Fresh Mommy said...

It looks fantastic! Great change!

April said...

i like it!!!

CaJoh said...

Not to say you are, but you now can pass as my younger sister— I always wanted one of those.

The first shot shows more of the color than the second. Very nice. And a nice bob as well.

Straight to Your Hart said...

So, for every comment made to you about your hottness...I will match with you..Just let me know!

Simply_Pam said...

Short hair makes you look younger and I would say it works for you. My girls tell me I look better with short hair. I am thinking that I would really look young bald.. well maybe not...

Tiffany said...

At least that weird haircut takes away from your gray hair.

Just kidding! I think you look super cute. This coming from someone who got bangs yesterday. What was I thinking?

Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

Love the hair cut!!! I soooo need to get one myself, especially with the heat we're set to endure here in Louisiana.. ugh!

Beadiful Things said...

I. love. it!

It just about inspires me to go shorter than my own newly short haircut which I hate too (actually, it's just the bangs I hate; thank God for bobby pins, right?).

And the progress you made on getting back to your roots is pretty impressive. Salt & pepper hair is sexy, Deb!

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

It looks super cute, Deb! Here's to chopping hair off! :)

Wifey Dessert said...

I think your hair looks adorable!!! and nothing like N. Dynamite!!!

BenLand said...

love that you're doing this!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Cute,cute!
I love a short do, but I'll be sporting my momma ponytail for a few more years!

Tonya said...

I think your hair looks great! It is getting warmer out and this is the perfect doo for the summer. You are stylin'!

Emily said...

Deb- I think it's super cute. Not every woman could carry off such a stylish short cut, you certainly have the look down! -e

Eva Robertson said...

Is it too late to comment? You're a babe. :)
