Dawn French!

I darkened my hair too but I can't see any resemblance?

DS1 (15) was disappointed when he realised it was just me hmm grin

I'll try to put a pic on my profile but had trouble last time I tried? I'm computer savvy so not sure why? I just took it and I have no make up on and my hair isn't styled so no awful comments please!! wink

CuriousMama Thu 25-Oct-12 16:08:30

Right I managed to upload one it won't be on long though sans make up!!

Can't see it myself but your hair does look lovely. Good trimming!

CuriousMama Thu 25-Oct-12 16:10:20

Me neither? Dp just got up (night-shifter) and said he can't see it?

I'm a hairstylist and disillusioned with my local salons. So I've taken to doing my own again.

I can't see the resemblance - looking at the pic of her on the MN front page she has a long bob which is shorter at the back, whereas yours is much longer and layered. Well done for cutting your own hair so well!

CuriousMama Thu 25-Oct-12 16:11:25

Oh and thanks SO smile

I coloured it for halloween just with a shop one, it was looking too light on the ends.

cocolepew Thu 25-Oct-12 16:11:33

No its too long to be like hers, nice though!

TomsBentPinky Thu 25-Oct-12 16:12:20

Nope, not dawn french,

Zooey Deschenel !!

You don't look anything like Dawn French, but your hair does look nice. I'd love to be able to cut my own hair.

CuriousMama Thu 25-Oct-12 16:13:07

I think it must be the fringe? I said that too them, that my hair's longer. Kids eh? I just found it funny the way they said it together.

I don't know why I'm protesting that my hair isn't done as I rarely 'do' it. Lazy

CuriousMama Thu 25-Oct-12 16:14:42

Oh TBP I love you, how much did you want again? wink I could be her mam! easily

TomsBentPinky Thu 25-Oct-12 16:17:12


Definatly Zooey-esque.

Lately I'm looking like Charlize Theron in monster


CuriousMama Thu 25-Oct-12 16:17:57

Blimey Zooey's 32 I just had a peek to show dp. My there are some saucy pics of her online shock

cocolepew Thu 25-Oct-12 16:28:17

Bloody hell, youre the same age as me but look about 10 years younger cowbag

CuriousMama Thu 25-Oct-12 16:35:15

I get that a lot cocolepew it's just genes. Must be as I started smoking and drinking at 10. I don't smoke now but still drink a bit. My mam's 82 and looks in her 60s which helps seen as her bf is mid 50s wink My dp's older than him!

mummmsy Thu 25-Oct-12 16:37:44

nothing like dawn french! great hair, don't look anywhere near 44!

cocolepew Thu 25-Oct-12 16:53:05

10! shock I thought DH was bad starting at 13 grin

CuriousMama Thu 25-Oct-12 17:22:46

Thanks for the compliments mummmsy.

I know I blame my Scottish genes wink Well that and the fact I hung around with older dcs. Plus a friend with spare cash and a dubious shopkeeper who'd sell them to us. My two have no desire to smoke thank God. They hate it.

CuriousMama Thu 25-Oct-12 18:10:40

I've put some slap on now and feel much better. Off out and will tell my friends what the dcs said grin

TessCorpseDissect Thu 25-Oct-12 18:18:18

If I send money to cover postage & packing - could you send me some of your genes please? grin

CuriousMama Thu 25-Oct-12 18:24:24

grin Yes no problem it's a special spell am sure it'll work wink

CuriousMama Sat 27-Oct-12 12:34:15

I told a friend and she cracked up, I think Dawn French is lovely and I found it a compliment!

Anyway, me and my new hair are at a dance tonight and I'm dressing as a devil not a vicar wink

Wolfiefan Sat 27-Oct-12 12:40:42

ANTM. They all had bangs! It's on trend. Tell your boys. Really not seeing Dawn French. (Not that she's not lovely). Maybe your boys think you are really funny?!

CuriousMama Sat 27-Oct-12 12:42:14

No they really think I look like her hmm Strange children! What does ANTM mean?

CuriousMama Sat 27-Oct-12 12:44:52

I googled, is it America's next top model?
