It's like I got a new haircut

It's like I got a new haircut, but I don't know how to style it.
It's like I switched from Supercuts to an uptown salon, and I know it's better, but so far I don't look any better. Because I don't know how to style it.
It's like I complained about my Supercuts hairstyle and then Ken surprised me and gave me a gift certificate for an uptown salon.
Or more like he blindfolded me and drove me uptown himself.
Or more like he brought the uptown hairstylist to me.
And I know it's better, and I've wanted it for a long time, but I don't know how to manage my new haircut, and so it doesn't actually look better (because I don't know what I'm doing).
So I'm hiding out.
But tomorrow I'm going to that uptown salon and getting some lessons.
On my new *haircut*.

Perfect analogy Barb! You are going to love it. I think you take breathtaking photography already so now with lessons on your new toy they are going to be over the top! I can't wait!

(Nice job Ken!)

I was all ready to see a picture of you with a short bob or something, until I clicked on the *haircut* link.

So fun. I really enjoy our new camera, but I know I don't understand all the functions yet.

Have fun with your new *style*!

I love it! I was waiting for a bob too but this is so much better! I need a new haircut, but I am too afraid of making an expensive mistake, or not learning how to style it, so I just stick with my split ends and frizz and sigh about how I need a trim!

Can't wait for updates on your class, you are going to be a pro!

I have a haircut kind of similar to that, and every once in a while I have a good hair day, but mostly I find myself putting it in a ponytail. I'm glad you're learning how to style yours, getting the most out of your husband's very thoughtful investment. Go Barb!
