I hope that you are enjoying my posts from Linda’s Just Jot it January as much as I am enjoying writing them.

Here is today’s prompt word.

I have to admit that I actually wrote this post on Friday evening. I am working both Saturday and Sunday and after a looooong shift, I don’t always feel like writing too much.

After feeling pretty grotty for the past week and spending most of the time in my PJs, I felt that I needed a bit of cheering up. I find that when my hair looks good I feel good. However, my hair looked bloody awful! My face has got even fatter and I didn’t feel my hairstyle was very flattering at all, especially as I have to wear it up for work. I look the same shape as a snowman with the ball-shaped head and big round body with a couple of stick-like arms (and legs). It was time for a change.

After ploughing through Pinterest to get some ideas (flattering hair for fat faces) I saw several but they were too high maintenance by the look of them. I need, easy and simple styles for the fat face! Anyway, this morning I phoned the local hairdresser on the off-chance to see if they had any appointments free and they did at 1 pm.

The stylist was helpful and friendly and gave me some ideas as to what she thought would suit me. I took her advice, had quite a lot cut off, and a fringe put in and I loved it. It is not often I feel confident about my appearance but my new hairstyle made me feel fantastic.

Oh, and later on in the day, I had the results of another assignment. I was worried I would fail it after the disaster of the first essay but I passed. Definitely a fantastic day!

My new haircut!
