Updates – Part Four

Hey! Pull yourself away from the turkey and dressing and check out these fine ladies, will ya?

This first update wins my HT Most Improved Award. Remember Melanie?


Melanie was treading lightly in mullet territory, and if I recall correctly, I advised to “take off the back and go for a bob”. Well, Sam Hill! She got herself a bob AND busted out a flat iron.

Take a look at this firecracker!


Seriously, this photo made me shout with glee for Melanieeeeeeeeee! Doesn’t she look amazing?

Damn, I’m good.

Oh, but it doesn’t end there. Remember last week’s Lori? Blue-eyed Lori, Martina McBride’s future twin?


Well, she took HT advice and went brunette with sideswept bangs. Hold on to your hats, ladies and gents, because she is HAWT.


Look at those eyes! Holy shit!

All of these fantastic updates can only mean one thing. Hair Thursday will take over the world.


Now, get back to those pies and PLEASE don’t forget the whipped cream. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    I agree! Lori’s eyes are totally popping with that colour and the cut is gorgeous. Kudos to HT and Whoorl!

    So I’ve got to ask the question Whoorl…what do you know about African American hair that is chemically treated (relaxed)? :)

    Melanie gest the award for biggest change – her eye color just pops with this new sleek ‘do!

    And that color looks great on Lori, and again with the eyes!

    Great suggestions, Whoorl!

    I’ve been lurking for a long time, and after seeing the wonderful results for these ladies thought I would ask a couple of hair related questions.
    1. Do you have any suggestions for hairstyles that look good on girls who wear glasses?
    2. What is the best way to “break up” with your stylist? And after you do, how do you find a new stylist?
