JUST KIDDING!

in the adorable salon // taking a cheesy photo of myself

I went to an AMAZING new salon in NoLIta (North of Little Italy) called Fox & Boy this morning and entrusted my precious locks to the attentive and loving hands of the delightful Julie Dickson. There's no doubt in my mind that this is the only salon I will visit from now on.

For those of you who have been following my hair dilemma posts (exhibit 1 and exhibit 2), you know I've contemplated bangs and a bob. After complaining to Julie that I:

1) Wanted to mix things up, and have had the same side-swept bangs since a trip to Italy at age 17 during which I "reenacted" my interpretation of Audrey Hepburn's haircut in "Roman Holiday,"

AND

2) Don't want to feel like a soccer mom anymore...

... Julie said: "A bob will instantly make you look 30 years old, the same way a bob aged Katie Holmes. And bangs are what you've always had, so let's do something different." I can be picky about my hair but Julie is a great listener, a beautiful gal, and has GREAT training so she clearly knows what she's doing. I decided to trust her implicity.

The result is a great layered cut, which we both agree reminds us of a Brigitte Bardot/Catherine Deneuve-in-the-'70s style. As you may recall, I love the '70s and ADORE Catherine Deneuve!

I stepped out of the salon into dreary, humid NYC and melted a bit (which explains why the "After" pictures aren't as great as I might have hoped) but I feel absolutely great about this style.

And I feel so fortunate to have found my new hair home!

(p.s. Daily Candy and NYMag agree!)

Cheers and best of luck to Julie and the F&B gang!
Cxx.

Super sexy and cute! Love the Lily dress (the same one you wore to my party last Aug!) and something reminds me of Audrey Hepburn?

I really like it! But I do think you could easily pull off the fake haircut from the second photo
