i suffer from severe panic attacks before getting my hair cut. i’m so not even kidding. i’ve had too many horrific experiences where i was crying before even leaving the salon. Too many experiences asking for Rachel’s season 4 long layers only to end up with her season 1 shag. Too many experiences asking for them to keep it long only to end up with a scissor-happy stylist. i mean, honestly, i have long, straight hair. how hard is it to give me a nice cut??? apparently, it nearly impossible.

i was more nervy than usual. new place. new colorist. new hairdresser. no air conditioning. i was sweating buckets. literally.



(please note. this is a scary, scary picture of me….but it was taken by my husband, while he was half-asleep, from our bed, at 7:30 this morning…)


Relax. I kid. I’m thanking my lucky stars i didn’t go to Sanjaya’s hairdresser.

i am soooo happy with it. the color. the cut. everything. i think i’m still sweating, though.

p.s. can someone please tell me how to fix those unslightly raccoon rings around my eyes??

p.p.s. i DID get over 4 inches cut off the back. so there! 

  1. WOW!! FANTASTIC! I love it!!

    They did such an awesome job. When I figure out how to get rid of the coon eyes, i will let you know…until then, we are stuck with them.

  5. Where do you go? I have been looking for the past 3 years since I’ve been in North York and can’t find a good place!

  7. Ali you looked great before!
    But the color, that is awesome, LOVE it! and love the new cut, looks super! You are one HOT mama!!

    Comment by Sarah on March 28, 2007
  8. Ali – you look lovely (but then you always do!)!!! I love the cut – I have the opposite problem: thick, wavy, voluminous hair – after 10 years, I am still looking for a good hairdresser in Perth!!! (and missing my Gino, formerly of Capucci Salon, Bloor West Village, sigh).

    Re eyes: try cucumber slices or tea bags, both work well.

  9. Love it! It’s a fantastic colour.

    I got mine done yesterday too. Same old, with me begging my stylist to colour my hair blond and her refusing to cover up “gorgeous natural colour”. I will win this one.

    As for the dark circles. I have the cure!

    -Create a time machine
    -Go back in time
    -Have no kids
    -Sleep for hours on end after partying all night

    See? Easy peasy!

  11. Looks great! Have fun tonight.

  12. I think you would have looked better without the 7th ponytail in the mohawk.

    Oh wait…wrong picture…

    And, the dark circles must be unrelated to parenthood, as I have them, too. 🙂

  13. I LOVE your haircut. I’ve had so many hair cut horror stories. I spend way too much on the guy who cuts my hair (like so much that I get colour somewhere else), but he’s the only person I trust. And when I stray I totally regret it.
    And … the Rachel. Know what you mean. Why do people keep doing the season 1 haircut? Why?

  14. Nice! Love it!

    Comment by Chris on March 28, 2007
  15. Very excellent haircut.
    I use an illuminating concealer on the horror that is my under-eye area – Maybelline Instant Age Rewind – and it works really well.

    Comment by Rebecca on March 28, 2007
  16. Looks great! And I love that colour. My hair used to be that naturally….when I was little. Now, just plain light brown. ugh.

    Comment by Jay on March 28, 2007
  17. You look fab!! I luv both the colour and cut!

    Comment by Tova on March 28, 2007
  18. hey Ali is that like a feather duster in sanjaya’s head?an orange feather duster mohawk.well thank goodness you don’t look like that!

    Comment by LAVENDULA on March 28, 2007

  21. LoVe It! GrEaT CuT!!

    About the eyes. My naturopath said that too much dairy will give you purple rings under your eyes. It’s totally true for my kids – especially Cam.

    Comment by Christine on March 28, 2007
  22. I have hairdresser anxiety as well……I am trying to grow my hair out these days for my impending nuptials, but oh goodness, it is not easy

    Comment by iris on March 28, 2007

  25. You have GORGEOUS hair, Ali! OMG!

    And seriously, what the fuck was on top of Sanjaya’s head last night?

    Comment by mamatulip on March 28, 2007
  26. That cut is fabulous! and color is AMAZING. Seriously. Those are some awesome highlights.

    As for the racoon eyes – Avon. Anew. That’s all.

    Comment by Aimee on March 28, 2007
  27. Very pretty cut!

    I learned a secret when I went to cosmetology school eons ago. Ask for their comb, then use the inch markers on it to show them EXACTLY how much you want cut. It solved my problem with my hairdresser the first time out!

    Comment by Kristi on March 28, 2007
  28. These comments should really make your day, and make you feel fabulous and gorgeous! Your hair looks great. You scared me at first with the Sanyaya pictures. Hee 🙂

    Comment by Mandi on March 28, 2007

  31. You look GORGEOUS! What a hot mama!

    Comment by Nancy on March 28, 2007
  32. Your hair looks wonderful. I think that we have had the same stylist nazis before. You say cut off one ince and look on the floor and there is 3 or 4 inches in lenght there. I am wondering if they are using someother scale of measurement that we don’t know about yet.
