He didn't mean to be mean. But just when I was feeling a million dollars after a fairly radical colour change ...

Me: "?"
DH: "It looks exactly the same!"
Me (stepping out of shade): "?"
DH: hmm
Me: confused
DH: "Oh yeah, the colour's different. But what about... did you have the car window open while you were driving?"
Me: sad and angry

Grr! Do I ignore and continue to feel a million dollars or do I rush back to salon in tears?

This gives me something to add to my ever growing list of why my dad is amazing. Growing up he always noticed and told me my hair looked lovely when I'd had a cut. He also always tells me I look fab when I go out, even when my teenage self looked er....interesting or my skirt was a bit shorter than acceptable or even worse, I wore double denim!

Df gawks at my head as soon as I walk in then stage whispers to dd ''the whales had her hair done'' then he and dd whisper away about my hair and dd tells him not to call me a whale, I'm 9 months pregnant and I've already had 2 babies blah blah she's a star grin

I usually have to shout at them and ask if they like it but I never get an 'oh superman you look nice' when I walk in or ever

DH and i were going out to an important evening function with his work. So i had my hair 'dressed', all curls in an up 'do' i felt lovely. i walked in to get my frock on and he looked at me and said 'oh dear' with a daily mail [sad face] on. I said what did he mean? and he said 'well it doesn't suit you at all does it'

I was tearful and furious, we had an almighty row and then had to go out schmoozing all night. angry

I wonder why my DP is different from other blokes. He always notices when I've had my hair done, my eyelash extensions etc.

Men are weird in this department.

During my time with dh I've had numerous radical colour and cut changes.

I've rushed home expecting shouts of ' wow ' and got nothing and even have had to say ' AHEM ' and point to head.

Bet you look lovely OP.
