Why is it

That when you go to the hairstylists, you ask for this:

But you end up with something like this:


or this:

...which is totally cute on David Cassidy... in 1974, but on a 40-something (extremely 40-something) mother of 7 in 2012, not so much.

Or this, which is kinda what it looked like after I tried styling it at home:

Hey, maybe if I wore a gold jumpsuit, no one would notice my hair!

Oy vay. Looks like I'm going to have to wear a ponytail till July (and thank the Lord that I still have enough to put into a ponytail). Or get it cut super-short, which (as Daria attests) makes husband sad.

  1. This is so very,very addressed to my situation. My Beckham bob has grown down to my shoulders and I have to do something bout it before Easter. This is complicated by the fact that dear husband always looks sad when I arrive home after a haircut. He refuses to see what long stringy hair does to women of a certain age. Your top picture is exactly what I'd like, and Florence H's shag is exactly what my hair does, having an annoying tendency to flip out rather than under.
