Here's the update:
There is no update!
I thought my appointment was this past Saturday at 12:30, my hairdresser thought it was this past Friday at 12:30, so needless to say I wasn't there when she was expecting me, so now I am rescheduled for this Saturday at 11am. DRAT doesn't that stink? When you are SO looking forward to it and then BAM you have to wait another week? Oh well. No biggie. But based on the votes, looks like the majority like the longer, layered look, with just one vote narrowly edging out the blonder highlights for the brunette with the warm highlights.
So, if I went with the voting (and had a hair and makeup person AND a personal shopper,) I might end up looking like this:
BUT--I do really need some volume on top with maybe a side-swept bang, AND I am REALLY hankering for a coloring along these lines:
But I might surprise you and go full-on bob:
Can you tell I adore Mariska Hartigay?
Or maybe a longish-bob like Gwenyth's (not this color mind you).
Oh, and I think one has officially reached the point of obsessing when one starts to Google "great bob haircuts." Stick a fork in me, I am done.
Stay tuned! (This has been so much fun!)
