Today, for the first time in my life, I went to a hairdresser to get my hair styled. She put some highlights in, did a very slight trim to even up the edges and then straightened it. With the curls, my hair is still a bit short to do much with it and I’ve never had straight hair before so I thought why not. She just used the hair dryer and flat iron to straighten my hair so next time it gets wet the curls will return, but for now I am enjoying the new look.



Hugs,
Jayne

Dear Jayne .... or whoever you are.... what did you do with my friend Jayne? ???
Wow-Whee ...
I am at a loss for words to tell you how beautiful and feminine that you look.... 
There is absolutely NO sign of the old "John" or even the Jayne that we have come to know and love.

What does your wife think of your new look? ??? 
Also when you go to work I imagine that all heads will be looking at you!!!!   
So very wonderful... nice job on the hair and your overall appearance.   100% woman.

I am so thrilled at seeing your new photo... and I am happy that you made it your Avatar/Profile pic.
 :)  ;)
Hugs,
Danielle

You look great Jayne!
Sounds easy enough for you to learn and do it yourself 🌸🌸🌸

I think I need to make a step like that, “only my hairdresser knows for sure”

Time after time after time in the last few weeks, you have been rendering me nearly speechless, Jayne. This is no exception. All I can think of to say is you look absolutely wonderful and totally feminine. I am yet again so happy for you! Congratulations!

Wow Jayne,

That new look is great! You certainly look very different and quite feminine. Your stylist did a good job, does this mean you now need to buy a straightener?

Hugs Nicole

Wow, girl! you look fantastic! Next time I am in Sidney we have to go to this place together. What a difference a hairstyle can make. It does look absolutely feminine, makes you years younger and it produced a very nice smile on your face!

Yes, this picture is worthy to be used as an avatar.

I assume you already went out and bought a flat iron!

Admittedly I liked the curls, but for a nice cut, they have to grow a little more. As you said - they will be back when your hair gets wet, so right now you have the best of both worlds!

Hugs,

Sarah

Wonderful look Jayne!  Your smile says it all!!   :D

Get a decent flat iron and some argan oil (as a protector) and try to duplicate what your stylist did.  It will take a bit of practice but you'll get the hang of it soon enough.

Jayne your hair stylist nailed it.  My first reaction was wow.  And still is.  Excellent look at this hair length, and it only gets better from this point.

Thank you everyone for the lovely comments about my hair. I really had no idea what to expect at the salon. The stylist asked me what I wanted and I said to her that I have no idea. All I know is that I want to grow my hair longer and do something in the interim while it is growing. Straightening it was an experiment to see how it looked. I was surprised how different I looked with straight hair. However, as I knew it would happen, when I had a shower this morning my hair bounced back to its normal curls. I’m going to the shops now to buy a styling brush to experiment myself to see if I can recreate what the stylist did. Even if I totally screw it up, I’m sure I will have fun trying. I think in the long term, after my hair grows some more, my preference will be to have curly hair. Time will tell. In the mean time, I am having so much fun!!!

Hugs,
Jayne

Dear Jayne:
YES INDEED.... FUN !

Hair is just one part of the fun with all the styles that you do and colors of course, and bows, bands, braids, pony tails.... so exciting.   .... and also of course all the wide variety of clothing and shoes... colors, styles, dressy, casual, etc.  ....   and also jewelry and earrings!!!   The list goes on.

I can hear the excitement in what you have written....
Thank you for sharing your wonderful moments with all of us....  we are your biggest fans.
Hugs and hugs,
Danielle

It sounds like you have a built-in "erase" switch, so you can't do any harm by experimenting.  Have fun!
