Not Me Monday: Can I Have Your Autograph, Kelly Clarkson?

Join in the Not Me! Monday fun brought to the land of Blog from MckMama over at My Charming Kids!

I did NOT have my mini makeover this weekend. I did NOT return home from the hair salon looking like her....(seriously...my hair is NOT this streaky or these same colors...no offense, Kelly, this looks fabulous on you....for those of you new to this style of blog meme...this is exactly what my hair looks like right now but with more bleachy streaks...)

Chilly and the kids did NOT call me Kelly Clarkson all weekend. My stylist would NEVER do this to me especially when I told him this (see photo below) is what I wanted....I did NOT show him a photo of the color I wanted....My hair is NOT even more auburn than before with huge streaks of bleach blonde...(not that I didn't enjoy my previously auburn colored hair, I just wanted to shake things up for summer...)


I did NOT make it extremely clear that I wanted all coppery red tones out of my hair. I did NOT say repeatedly I wanted soft ash blonde for summer. I did NOT say to him NO CHUNKY HIGHLIGHTS when I saw the bleach cream on the color stand. I did NOT repeatedly try to make sure he was very clear on the whole ash blonde idea. He apparently did NOT give a crap about what I (the customer) wanted. I am NOT sporting the exact hairstyle in the Kelly Clarkson photo at this moment. I do NOT look like a skunk with a lopsided stripe when I pull my hair back because my bangs are NOT a huge streak of bleach blonde hair on one side. It is NOT the worst color job I've ever had...EVER....

I did NOT contact the salon to correct this hair nightmare ASAP because I do NOT have a mini vacation coming this weekend while NOT attending my daughter's Irish dance competiton in Scottsdale. I did NOT ride an emotional rollercoaster all weekend because of my hair. I wear big girl panties...I would NEVER act so silly over my hair...just ask my family who I did NOT drive crazy with my whining. I will NOT stop torturing you with my continued whining here...

I am NOT delirious with delight that it is JUNE!!!!! I am NOT hoping that all of this crazy black rain cloud of energy that has been around me for the last two months has gone bye bye! I am NOT focusing on lots of positive vibes today!

Hope you are NOT having a great start to the month of June!

xoxo...

It seems that I always end up with the chunky highlights too - either that or completely blonde... Which I don't like being either! Totally feel your pain! I'm sure you'll get it all straightened out soon!

I do NOT have any horrible hair stories to share!!

Happy Monday!

I dig it, but thats just me. I'm sure you look fab!

June is GREAT! June means my birthday in 8 stinkin' days!
Bobby G said…
WTF BEE? No pics of YOU? I know what Kelly Clarkson looks like, but I dont know what Bee looks like w said hair, also I do NOT want to make fun of you! LOL
Kristina P. said…
Oh, Dawn, I can relate to this more than you know!

We finally don't do bleach in my hair anymore, but do highlights with blonde color, and it's definitely not as skunky.
The New Black said…
Hair nightmares are the worst!! I have red hair, which is really difficult when it comes to coloring, so I have TONS of them!

Hope you get all straightened out soon!!
B said…
Why do so many stylist feel they'll just do what they want? Aren't we the ones paying for this?
Becky said…
Okay-now I really want to see this hair. Mine never turned out the color I wanted at the salon either..now i just use Loreal and do it myself :P
pam said…
I once sported the skunk look as well. Glad I am broke now, and just have to use the box! (see silver lining)

Hope you are well, I have missed you.
LT said…
So sorry you didn't get what you wanted, that always sucks! I am adding the picture request too, lets see it! I say call the salon and tell them you hate it and what are they going to do about it!?
Hope this week is better for you!
Randi Troxell said…
dont you HATE it when the stylist doesnt listen to you.... uuuggghhh, makes me sooo mad too!
The Blonde Duck said…
Hair is extremely important. I too go ballistic over bad dye jobs. And I don't just whine--I obsess, worry, flip out and howl in agony.
LadyStyx said…
I go nuts over a bad hairjob too. I'm worse when I lose a stylist that does great things to my mane...three days later and I'm still in mourning.
Vickie said…
He must have really screwed up because I like Kelly Clarkston's hair in that picture.

Sorry, I have a few hair scare stories myself. Hair stylist sometimes just don't listen. I had the best one and then she left me and went to Florida. WHAT!!

the best part of hair disasters is that they grow out - that and you can always shave your head :).
Kat said…
Oh lord child! I would have chewed him out the min I saw my hair.
Caitlin said…
Nooo! Botched hair jobs are the worst! I don't think that Kelly's hair looks too terrible, and I'm sure that if you embraced it you really do look alright. :) But I suppose you could say that about me when I tried to go blonde and ended up with hair the exact color of a new penny. Well, no. You couldn't.
Hair issues are the worst. Don't they know better. Bad hair days determine 90% of the whole day.

Sorry about this. I hope it was taken care of.
Yaya said…
Not daring enough to show us your hair, eh?
Kelly said…
Oh that is so too bad! I hate feeling bad after spending money on my hair. Such a waste! I hope someone can correct the problem soon. Life's too short for bad coloring!
Saucy said…
Sometimes, hairstylists just do what they want to do... in spite of what we ask. Glad to hear you sported your big girl panties over this one, it's all you can do.
It's no fun when the stylist doesn't listen! lol
Cadance said…
Oh! Hope your hair will all be fixed and beautiful again! I know how that can stress one out!!!!!
Badass Geek said…
I do NOT find Kelly Clarkson attractive.
mommaof4wife2r said…
i thought her style was awesome...but i def wanna see you in it!!1 come on...let's see it!
Flick said…
So happy June is here too!!
Debbie said…
Highlights are very tricky things!
Kristen Andrews said…
tag u are it, hope u are doing well!
Beth said…
I hate when hairdressers don't listen to the customer. I would have had a big time fit.
blognut said…
Can you believe that it takes me until WTF Wednesday to get over here and read your Not Me Monday post.

I'm sorry - you're great - as always!
Annie said…
Okay, now I'm scared. I was thinking of doing highlights...but what if they don't turn out? Uggh!
Tranquility said…
I don't understand what the deal with stylists is!... They just seem determined to put the coppery IN and for some reason (even though no one above the age of 17 wants streaky hair), equally determined to be sure that you come out looking as unatural as possible.

I once spent an entire summer going from salon to salon, trying to convince someone to dye my hair dark and get rid of the copperiness(OMG - heaven forbid someone wants to go dark... in SUMMER)!

I've given up on salons because I always end up "fixing" it when I get home!

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)


A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
