Before and After

Today I had somewhere to go where I actually got to put on heels, trouser pants, and my trench coat...as opposed to the usual jeans and ballet flats. As I was heading out of our tiny town, I stopped by our gas station (like I do every day) to buy some treats :) As I was paying for my coffee, bag of Starburst and Skittles, the cashier said to me, "You look like Tom Cruise's wife...what's her name again?" At that moment, I wanted to jump over the counter and give her a great big bear hug! How sweet! How kind! How lovely of her! How vain of me, I know :) But she did make my day with her kind words! We decided it was the haircut...(which I had seriously copied, by the way.)

This is Tom's wife, Katie Holmes...totally copying me :)
So, when I got home this afternoon I had to dig out my before & after pics from this summer when I cut my hair to copy Katie...because, honestly, who doesn't like some before & after shots!?!
Here goes.... Before: (I shouldn't have smiled...I should have looked miserably pathetic like they do in real before & after shots...what was I thinking!?!)
and the back...
and after



So there's been some slight changes since this summer cut...you can check here if you're not already completely bored :) If you've got some before & after shots, you better let me know!!

  1. So, so fun. I love before and afters. That cut is fantastic on you, it's perfect. Totally Katie Holmes just without the Scientology.

    I'm going in Wednesday so I'll probably have some of my own to share.

    I'm loving all the green. The green walls, the green shirt. Good stuff.

  2. Can you sue a superstar-by-association for stealing your haircut? You should definitely check this out!

    BTW, did you see my reply comment last week on the 'On Longing' blog? Just making sure my follow-up actually got to you! :-)

    I'll meme and catch up on the rest soon! Blessings,

  7. OK - you don't know me (I'm friend's with Beth and J) but I was curious (I saw you liked running). So I read this post and I have to tell you - I laughed when I read about smiling in the "before" shot. So true! They make the before shots look awful - no make-up, no smiling, hunched over. For once I'd like to see someone looking like they really were - even if the make-up was bad - and smiling like a real shot. THEN, do a similar stance "after" shot. But hey, I'd probably need all the help I could get to. Some would just be glad if I'd get a make-over, much less caring about the pic. LIKE the hair, btw.

  8. Very cute, Sarah! I am so overdue for a cut/color. It's been three months, I'm too chicken to try someone new, I have yet to find someone whose hair I like so I can ask them where they go.

  9. I love your hair. You are way cuter than Katie Holmes and not married to a scientologist, which is way better!

  10. Love your hair! I am so excited...I am getting mine cut and highlighted tomorrow. One more day and I might just have to cut it myself! I will try and do a before and after. It's so much fun!
