A New Look For 2011! Woo Hoo!

I finally did it.
I was stuck in a rut. 
A rut of: frizzy-flyaways-I'll-never-get-out-of-this-rut kind of rut, rut.
But I conquered my fear of incapable hairdressers.
I have quite a few horror stories  
(just ask the Agronomist about one incident involving bridesmaids, back-combing and ribbon) 
It wasn't pretty.
But I conquered my fear.
(in large part due to a wonderful girl named Andrea)
The girls have been asking me when I'll get a new look, 
with Eldest repeatedly asking me if she could 
"actually style my hair."
 I thought it was time to take a hint
A New Look for 2011. 

Happy New Year Friends!
See you on the other side : )
PS... I'll be revealing my non-resolutions tomorrow.  I have some doozies.
This post will be linking up with the wonderful Jenny Matlock for her New Years Party!

  3. LOVE your new look!!! So fantastic! What a great way to start the new year! Hope you have a wonderful beginning!

  4. It looks fabulous ! Happy New Year! I saw a wig the other day and I fell in love with it . It's not that I don't think I have nice hair , it's that I haven't found the right hairdresser. However, I think I would feel wierd wearing it because I'm a little shy

  5. New year, new look...start out with a bang!!!

  6. You look great! Wish I had the guts to grow my hair. I love that look!

  13. Very nice!

    Will you be telling us more about the back-combing? I hope so...

  14. Very chic, very hip, Dana.

    I understand your trepidation re. hair stylists. I've been searching for a new one since "mine" moved to the Twin Cities.

    The last time I had my hair cut, the hairdresser snipped his fingers and had to run for a band-aid. He also had a book propped up on a chair to use as a reference while he cut my hair. And, his arm pits smelled! Although the hair style turned out nothing like the one in the book, I got lots of compliments. Will I return to him? NO! I can't risk it!

    True story. Honest.

  15. You are a stunning thing you.

    I now have hair envy.

    But that may be because stellar jays are nesting in mine these days.

  16. Lookin' good Dana!
    Happy New Year!
    Sounds like some exciting things coming your way in 2011. Congrats with the photography will be awesome for sure!!!

  17. Well, I do not know what it looked like before...but that is absolutely adorable and you are a cutie!!

  18. Yeah, you did it! Change is good!

  19. WOW.

    How could I have missed this post??

    I am crazy about your hair.

    So crazy, I just want to hop on a plan and come tell you that to your face.

    The color...the length...the side thingy tease..the swinginess of it.

    I love it.

    You look so much like your girls now.

    You look wonderful, Dana, you look just wonderful.

  20. Love. Love. Love.
    Happy New Year!

  21. You are always beautiful.

    Your intelligence and goodness shines out of those eyes...letting everyone know you are 'good people' through and through.

    And gorgeous to boot.

    Happy New Year, dear lady.

    Hoping 2011 is warm and wonderful and filled with joy and grace.
