100 lb. Club - ok... a drastic change...need some feedback!

02-25-2007, 01:29 AM
Ha ha... ok so I think I've lost my mind...in celebration of 30lbs down I cut my hair off...literally...all of it... then tossed some dye on top! I think my stylist was more nervous than I was...anyway no one's really seen it yet so I was just looking for some new look feed back! (oh and a bit of an NSV too ... I bought a hot dress...in the normal section at Macy's...a size 12 calvin klein....on super clearance! for the wedding I'm going to in 2 weeks...not only that but all the dresses I tried on fit me in some way!)
ok so here's my before and afters with the new hair!


sorry the new one is a bit messy....and I'm lacking makeup but you get the idea!

You are soooooo pretty and I love the new haircut! The darker color makes your eyes stand out even more, don't worry it looks great but I'm sure such a change will take getting used to, but like I said the cut and color looks great on you!

I think you look awesome!! I used to have super long hair until my kids come along. Since then Ive kept it super short. A lot easier to take care of.

I LOVE the new hair do!!!!!

Sunshine you were beautiful before and I think perhaps you just might be more beautiful now. STUNNING!!!!! Simply stunning. Have a great time at that wedding knowing that you are an absolute knockout!!! Keep it up love. Keep it up. You hear me? Good. Mwa.

I love both hairstyles. I'm also thinking of doing some changes to my hair to celebrate my current weightloss and encourage myself with the rest! I really love your new look!

I LOVE shorter hair with glasses like yours. I have similarly-shaped glasses, and I definitely think I look better wearing them with short hair than with long. Either way, though, you've got gorgeous eyes, and I agree that the new darker color just makes them pop even more. I think the short hair actually makes you look younger, too (not that you looked old before...you know what I mean :p ).

WOW - you are gorgeous!! I love the shorter hair too!! (but both pics you are a definate knockout!).....now, I know I have borrowed some of your Mojo on occasion, I need to borrow some of your looks too!:D ;)

New haircut is very cute and much more current than the long locks. Love it!

My 19 y/o son would say "You're a sexy lady." I think the shorter is just that, sexy and sassy. Looks great on you. I am a former cosmetologist. I should know. ;)

I LOVE it!!! Your hair looks so healthy too!
I've been wanting to cut my hair lately (in a big way) too!
It must be common to want to switch it up after losing some weight!

02-25-2007, 11:02 AM
PHEW! thanks ladies...I do like it...thought its been a long time since I've had short hair so its gonna take some time to to get used to it and figure out what to do with it! It was a bit nerve racking that no one had seen it yet.
I've been known to do some drastic things to my hair (its been every color of the rainbow, short, long, dread locks, shaved etc so I've got some balls when it comes to major hair changes) i think this was a change for the better!
My advice if you're gonna go for a major hair change....just let go. I looked at all kinds of pictures and all kinds of colors of styles that I liked but in the end they never even left my bag...I said to Jack (my stylist) 'are you feeling creative today' and that threw him through a loop! He kept saying 'are you sure' ha ha....he said he wished all his clients were as brave as me ha ha! I turned over all creative license and said 'Jack, I trust you...now go to town' and he did...and it was quite liberating!

I like it!
I just cut my hair off this week too... I was hoping that having a great new do would keep me motivated to get the weight off! LOL, so far it is working. I went from waist-length hair to shoulder length and dyed it auburn!
This must be the week for drastic changes! :dizzy:

02-25-2007, 12:27 PM
Sunshine, I love it!...beautiful color and lovely texture! And, I have to second what everyone else has said, you are a beauty, girl!

02-25-2007, 12:41 PM
Love it!!! It draws attention to the line of your neck and collarbones and shoulders, showing a sexy lady!

02-25-2007, 01:28 PM
Fabulous do! I hope to be as brave as you when I grow up! Heh!

02-25-2007, 01:41 PM
It's beautiful, and ohhh, to have skin and eyes that pop like that without makeup......

:cheer: :cheer: Great news on the size 12 too! That's wonderful.

Beautiful Sunshine! The cut is a much more current look than the long one.

You were beautiful before the haircut too, but the new cut just frames your face perfectly. Super! Have fun at the wedding! :carrot:

02-25-2007, 01:58 PM
You are SO pretty!! I love the hair cut/color, and what I wouldn't give for your beautiful eyes!!!;)

02-25-2007, 02:08 PM
I love it! The cut, the color, everything. You look beautiful!!!

02-25-2007, 03:46 PM

You look positively stunning! There's nothing like some sort of new makeover to make you feel even better about yourself after losing weight! I think it makes you look very daring and very self assured. I love it!

02-25-2007, 04:05 PM
Wow! You look incredible. Love the shorter hair. You have the most beautiful eyes!

You have a great smile...both hairstyles work for you! Congrats on getting into the "normal" section! I'm looking forward to that once again too!

02-26-2007, 11:26 AM
I couldn't tell which was the after picture.. they both are beautiful! Stunning eyes you have.

02-26-2007, 12:28 PM
It looks hot!

Mine's about that length too.. and color! But it looks a lot better on you.. :lol:

You look great!

02-26-2007, 10:17 PM
You look absolutely outstanding - both before and after!!

The short hair just looks wonderful!!!

02-26-2007, 10:49 PM
I love the short hair. I think it gives you attitude. And I do have to agree with the others that it makes your eyes stand out even more. When I looked at the first picture I wondered if you had colored contract in (I have some that similar to your natural color) and then in the second picture I realized they were natural.
