I got my hair cut and colored yesterday, and am very happy with the results! (Grand Rapidians, you want to see Didi at Panopoulos in Cascade. She is The Best. Hands down.) The haircut was not any sort of trauma for me, as I am a Short Hair Girl (recent pictures of me on this blog to the contrary), and I've had very short hair before (including a near-skinhead phase in college) but I think this is my favorite short haircut so far. In the past I've let Didi go crazy with the color (bleached blond bob with pink and orange streaks), but this time we both agreed dark brown with a touch of red was the way to go.
Post-haircut, Andy and I headed downtown for dinner. I snapped a few photos of vintage Grand Rapids while we were out and about. I love seeing these whispers of the past, still around us, faded and peeling perhaps but still beautiful.
I love the peeling paint on this parking sign, and the HAHA tag.
