Hair styles

My "friend" Cyndi Spivey over at Walking in Grace and Beauty posted today about hair styles for women over 40.  This is a great topic for me to read because..well...I am actually over 40.  I know...I know....I don't look it do I???  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

But I am.  I'm almost 42...EEECCCCKKK.

I recently cut and colored my hair.  I went from short to shorter and from "desperately need a dye job blonde" to red.  It was REALLY dark red almost burgundy when Kim first cut it and I was scared.  Ava, my 5 year old saw me as she got off the bus, ran home, hid, and cried for an hour.  It's since faded nicely and I like the color but the cut?  Not so sure about it to be honest with you.  I wish I had a decent picture to share with you.  Wait, maybe I can ask my husband to take a quick picture and upload it.  Hold on.

Ok...so here I am in all of my glory....don't mind the fact that it doesn't look like I have any make up on at all.  We tackle that another day.

So, there is my color and I love it but the cut....not so much.

This is what I was going for.  Doesn't really look much the same. 

Personally, I think what SHOULD happen is that when I bring in a picture of a hair style, a) my hair cut should look JUST LIKE it and b) I should look just like the photo I bring in.

Now...I look NOTHING like Ginnifer Goodwin.

If you look at my Pinterest board on Hair styles all that I have pinned are short hair styles.  The two long ones on there are for color reference only.

I just don't know what to do.  I think my face might be too long for such a short cut.

What do you all think?

Next time...makeup.
