Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

I have made a decision.

And it’s a big one. 
So you know how I wear fake hair, like 99% of the time? Well I do. If you need a refresher on this go over to the left side of my page and click on the PLL hair button… 
secrets.spilled. 
Well recently I have just been getting annoyed with the upkeep. I love having long locks, but surprisingly my hair has gotten awfully long on it’s own while I’ve been masquerading around as a long haired vixen. 
hmm…. anyways, so I realized that lo and behold my hair is almost exactly the length Carrie’s is when she wears it short. GASP. SHOCK. 😉 
So I have decided to master her short lock looks. That is my plan for this weekend anyways. I’ll let you know my findings. Here is my inspiration. 

I realize I might be one step away from hopin’ aboard the crazy train, and I am ok with it. 

I think I got eerily close about a year and a half ago before I discovered ‘le weave’ and my hair was SUPAH short.
maybe? 

No? 
I don’t know, who am I kidding I have had two glasses of wine. (clearly I am writing this thursday night) 
Don’t fret my friends, the weave will not be gone for good, I just want to be able to embrace my natural baby hair from time to time. I’ve noticed it freaks guys out to see you taking out your hair extensions. And unfortunately I have left pieces of my weave in unwarranted locales, talk about an awkward phone call. 
We’ll see how it goes kids. It may be an epic #FAIL. I’ll be sure to video tape. With wine.

    Her short look is so cute!

  2. I think it's cute short. I see all these celebrities getting the "long bob" anyway….you can pull it off!

  3. Annabelle says:

    PLL- You are gorgeous either way! Heck just switch out between the two and it will never get old!

    Your Southern Sista,
    Annabelle

  4. Elise says:

    Her short hair is so cute-I'm sure yours will look just as cute!!

  5. Whitney says:

    i love rocking my weave too girlfran, but i got so sick of the upkeep. i chopped my hair off for the summer and it has been soooo easy. i think you hair is gorgeous anyway you fix it. i feel you every step of the way with baby fine hair. i blame my mother hehe.

  6. Tricia says:

    Your short hair-do looks pretty spot on to me! I would never be able to manage the upkeep of a weave, so good for you for continuing to do it part of the time if at all. I would've thrown my hands up and put it in a pony a while ago!

  7. I want my hair to be able to do this! I just got it cut yesterday and now I think it's the same length as yours. Now I have an assignment to do this weekend 🙂

    hahaha "Talk about about an awkward phone call." hahaha

    Reese's mom wears extensions from time to time and when I first met her she pulled it out of her purse. I was like ummmm … WHAT? Hair not attached to people's head scares me. Your weave fascinates me though.

    I totally think you can pull this carrie look off and I can't wait to seeeeeeee it! I also love that you refer to your hair as baby hair. That is all. Ta-ta.

    XOXOXOXO hearts,
    Lindsey Lee LouLou the 1st

  9. shay says:

    Girl, if anyone can pull this off it will be you! i totally think you can rock the shorter hair a la ms underwood…

    i however am still trying to master le poof! LOL

  10. Jenn says:

    I think its cute and fresh!! Have fun on your date tonight!! : )

    ~Jenn

  11. English says:

    I thought you were going to say since you wear them 99% of the time, you were throwing in all the chips and getting "permanent" ones weaved in professionally!

  12. Kitten says:

    I'm new to following your blog, but I absolutely love it! I can't tell you how many times your blog has just made my day. 🙂

  13. you are hysterical! your blog cracks me up so much!

  14. Shay says:

    youre too cute. I love Carrie's hair

  15. bnfunky says:

    Can't wait to see what you do! No matter what you do…I know it will look amazing. It's always good to shake it up a bit, and if all else fails…you can always just put ya weaveee back in again!

  16. I cannot wait to see this! My hair is the perfect legnth for this look however I have yet to master it. Perhaps I need one of your video tutorials!

  17. Ruthie says:

    I can't wait to see it! I'm sure it will look amazing because you do magic with hair, girlfriend!

  18. You guys are seriously like twins! Both so pretty 🙂

  19. Savannah says:

    Nothing you ever do is an epic fail….especially in the hair department. C'mon!

    : )

  20. Raven says:

    ok so YES! That last pic of you and that last pic of Carrie are so clones of each other. I can't wait to see how your hair looks all done and natural! I'm sure you will look JUST as beautiful!

    I also wear my Jsimps weave from time to time. I always say that "you know it was a good night when you wake up in the morning and ask your friend, 'do you know where my hair is?'"

  21. Amanda says:

    The short hair looks awesome! Go for it! You're Carrie's lookalike and gorgeous, so short, short, short! You can always wear "le weave" when you're feeling the need for long hair. Happy Friday!

  22. Megan says:

    Both of y'all look gorgeous!

  23. rachel says:

    omigoodness you crazy girl! your shorty 'do loooks EXACTLY like carrie's…i can't wait to see your 2011 version…just be-you-tiful!

  24. mrs.mfc says:

    Can't wait to see what you come up with!! I'm sure it will look amazing. Love videos with wine 😉

  25. Rachel says:

    Girl, you can pull of either. If Lex summer is anything like Nash summer, it's near impossible to rock long locks.
    One of my weave wearin BFFs always puts her "piece" {as we call it} on her air vent in her apt after she washes it. Sometimes it's hanging from her closet, poking out of her purse.. It's always a surprise when it's not in her hair. We tease her about it, but really I'm just jeal that I don't know how to properly wear "le piece"
    XO 🙂

  26. weave or no weave, you're still GAWWWGEOUS!! (for some reason i felt like saying gorgeous in a thick brooklyn accent, therefore i typed it)

    i love your hair short! i think its so cute. plus, with this HEAT, it's nice to have it off ya neck! nothing worse than the reach-a-round to gather your hair and half is stuck to your neck..Hate That

    last week i actually used your phrase, "if you lose your weave, it's time to leave" and cracked up laughing so much at how clever i thought i was and everyone stared at me. I was referencing it to my sister who had a feather extension in her hair and she thought it was gonna fall out

    but regardless, weave or no weave you still pull it off amazingly! cant wait to see how it turns out!!

    xoxox

  27. Your short hair is so cute! It totally looks like Carrie's too! Love it!

  28. sarahhayx33 says:

    love the short hair! btw- just ordered my first lilly planner for the school year and i am beyond excited!

  29. Samantha says:

    I cannot wait until you post pictures of your hair short with curls. Mine is right at shoulder length just don't know how to curl it where it looks good at all!
    xo
    Samantha,

  30. Meagan B says:

    your blog cracks me up-it is so much fun to read! good luck with the hair experimenting- I'm sure it will look great!

  31. catherine says:

    love your hair, love you even more that you are posting after some wine… i used to wear extensions like no bodies business…rock it girl!

  32. b. says:

    i love both! love the carrie picks. switch it up for fun 🙂 you're goregous either way!

  33. Raquel says:

    I love your short hair like that! Too cute 🙂

  34. Kelly says:

    I love your hair! If anyone can figure it out, you can! But promise you'll teach the rest of us!

  35. Mighty Burns says:

    LOL Yes please vlog this with some wine.. Id sooo tune in! First what I am sure all the other posts above mine say is this: you are BEAUTIFUL! Stunning in fact. so whatever you do is workin.
    but also.. soooo not a creep. Ive been freaking out over Beyonce so I have zero room to speak on anything your doing here lol. I love these looks though and think it is very very do able! Good luck and happy wine

  36. Beth says:

    Very cute, can't wait to see! Also, cent wait for your tips.

  37. Annamarie says:

    OK. Let me tell you. I have that same length of hair and it is as baby fine as it gets. If I want some beautiful waves in le hair I just put some wave cream in (I'm thinking about trying bumble and bumble surf spray soon!) along with some volumizing moose and woah baby! I usually get beautiful waves. Now you have to scrunch it with your hand while drying it… don't use a brush! Oh and of course follow all of that with a fair amount of hairspray… This Texas head loves some tresemme!

  38. Magan says:

    Love this! You look GORGEY either way. Just checked the weave vid and it was hilarious! I've never tried extensions but now I have the urge to give it a try. I'm always switching between short and long locks. I just posted a hair product review on my bloggy! You should check it out 🙂 XO Magan

    My boyfriend is from Checotah (yes, he knows Carrie Underwood…his sister graduated the same year as her from high school). I thought you'd like to know she in fact went to her 10 year reunion in Checotah and I just looked thru the album on facebook with many pictures of her.

  40. Sophie P says:

    You are too funny. Those poses! Just so Carrie lovely lady… Work the cut for a while, it looks tres cute XXX

  41. Hayley says:

    You know, I really do love short hair. If I could pull it off, I most definitely would've chopped this mane months ago. Georgia heat is no joke! Anyhow, I definitely think you can rock the short hair. I say go for it, and let "da weave" take a break! 🙂

  42. Holly says:

    I think your short hair is beautiful and I can't wait to see how it turns out!!

  43. i have a weave too and i love it.. dealing with my hair isnt always a breeze and making sure it stays healthy is for the birds. I sew mine in so not to leave pieces in my drunken weekend stuppers …. *giggles* so yea i go thru this about every 4 months. lmao.
