What the *?

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR030809000 AZ Broker BR030809000





You all know me, I don't typically start a blog post this way. In fact I never have.  But.....


Today after finally putting my contacts back in and taking a good hard look at my eyebrows I said, What The * ?  I didn't know I had curly eyebrows! When did that happen? 
Like many of us gals we've been pampered for years.... I certainly have and I think it started back in the 80's! I've had somebody artfully doing my eyebrows, nails and pedi's a long time. Very, very grateful for all the people and those little things in life!!
Who would think curly eyebrows could set off a wave of appreciation! 
I laughed at my new found situation and decided it was time to figure out a solution. So I did!  I also noticed a few white hairs.....hmmmm......that's was new to me too!  I'm happy to say I've got the serious situation ( I'm joking kids) under control, but not sure how long it will last...we'll soon find out!
So while we're all on pause find some things that you're noticing and laugh a bit at yourself! And maybe we can share some tips!  I am clueless as to these topics but I have this feeling I'm going to get pretty good at the whole thing.  We all will!!
Now.....for the mop on my head.  I don't trust myself to start snipping away!!! But who knows I just might have too! Lord help me!!
Consider this my short laugh break for the day!  Cheers!

I was so thankful that I got my hair done about three weeks ago - God only knows when I will get to see my hairdresser again

Anna Banana Kruchten Broker, CRB, CRS You'll notice I have straight hair in my headshot. I have naturally extremely curly hair. Long story, but I wanted a change, so my hairdresser and I set about straightening my hair - what you see in my headshot took a YEAR. And then one day I treat myself to a home henna rinse, something I hadn't done in a decade. And head off to my hairdresser three days later for a pre-scheduled appointment. And she almost bursts into tears, because it turns out henna and straightening processes are incompatible. It took another YEAR to grow out all the henna, and by then she had retired the one straightening process she ever used, and I've declared myself curly again ever since. Some people meeting me  now after seeing my headshot don't recognize me. I will NEVER cut my hair myself. Might go find some henna...

Hello Anna - my formerly tousled brown hair turned to salt and pepper then mostly salt quite some time ago.  Ready for my close-up?   Yikes - it's not Halloween - yet, is it?  Spring has just arrived.

Your words remind me of myself last month after having cataract surgery.  Afterward, I looked in the mirror, and couldn't believe the flaws I was seeing on my face!

I have never had any of that done. As far as coloring my hair I used to get that done but then started doing it myself but haven't in 2 years. As far as cutting my hair I do that quite often because most hairdressers end up cutting it way too short no matter how many times I tell them how I want it cut. Now the back is a bit harder so I only tried that once. I got one long eyebrow but it isn't curly.

Hi Anna... fortunately, eyebrows are not a "problem" for me except that they need to tinted darker... which I can do myself. And hair color is fine... I love my silver hair and let it grow out as it wishes... everyone asks me who does my color and I tell them Mother Nature. But I really do need a haircut and a mani/pedi... can't imagine another month without them. We are under shelter in place orders till end of April.

I don't have the hair I once had but without knowing how long it will be before I can get a cut I will enjoy my mini mohawk.

Hey Anna,
Curly eyebrows? LOL   I thought I was over ever trying to grow my hair out again but perhaps not since we can't get to the beauty parlor.  I did a little chopping on the sides the other day. It doesn't look too bad... in my opinion but I haven't been out in public to see if anyone looks at me funny.

OH, now this is hilarious, Anna! I don't 'do' the eyebrow thing (never have) but, my bangs are going to be what drives me nuts! They grow so fast - oh and the nails - UGH! 

I figure I've gained so commute time so I'll have to do my own mani-pedi for awhile and like you, Lord help me with the bang trim.

Stay healthy & safe, doll!

Anna slightly curly eyebrows are nothing to be worried about.  Now if they start to look like an afro you might have reason to become a little concerned ....... LOL

Sometimes my poor eyesight is a blessing, Anna Banana Kruchten Broker, CRB, CRS ... I'm sure all sorts of "problems" exist, but I can't see them that well ... soooooooo

Years ago when first married, my wife used to cut my hair to save us money.  What goes around comes around????

Stay safe ... stay healthy, Anna ...

Hi Anna:

Pretty funny post, along with the comments. And here I thought the post was going to be about those adroable puppies!

I am way overdo for a hair cut but not quite ready to touch it myself...just the beard and mustache. Perhaps my wife will take on the task...if I let her.

I've had my nails done twice in my life and my feet and toes three times and never my eye brows.... I'm not missing any of that stuff.  Guess I'm lucky.
