I Punk'd My Husband

Yesterday evening I went to get my hair cut and the color touched up, just the usual.

My conversation with the Mr. before getting my hair cut usually goes like this:
The Mr: what are you going to do with your hair this time?
Me: I was thinking short and brown.
The Mr: Yeah, you shouldn't do that. Not a good look for you. You know I love your long blond hair.
Me: Ok. I'll do the usual. Blond highlights, just trim.

(No offense to the brunettes out there. I actually love dark, rich brown hair, it's just not a good look for me. I had dark brown hair for a semester in college and I looked horrid. I should scan some pictures just to show you. And it took me forever to get the blond back after being so dark. And I really like bobs too, but short hair with my round face, is just not good. Tried it in High School. Anyway...)

So last night while getting my hair cut/colored by my good friend Carey (she cuts the Mr's hair too), I joked that we should play a trick on the Mr. and get me a dark brown short wig. But when Carey informed me there was wig store JUST down the street, I knew that it was time for a good old fashioned punking of the husband!

So I went and purchased a wig. And when I got home I looked like this:


And when the Mr. got home from dinner with his co-workers I greeted him at the front door with my brown bob.

The look of pure shock and terror on his face was priceless.

(Best $15.99 I've ever spent... I know, I know, I'm evil, but think of as payback for the speakers)

"Yeah, I thought I'd try a new look", I said.

He just kept saying "No way. No way."

When I finally grabbed the top of my hair and pulled the wig off he screamed and then fell to the ground with laughter.

Exhibit A:


Don't worry, I still look like this:


Yep, that was the best punk ever!

LOL, you are too funny! I love it!
I think your blonde hair and bangs are adorable your right. I'm a blonde and I tried the brown thing too and it didn't work at all. But just so you know, I think your brown wig looked really pretty on you also.
Good joke on the hubby.

Megan said...

Priceless friend....simply priceless!

Mrs. Potts said...

Love it! I've teased Mr. Potts before that I've done something like that, but I never had a wig.

I think you looked cute with the wig, but I agree, the longer/blonder is more you.

Ashley said...

That is Awesome!
The wig looks so real in the picture, but You rock the blonde so much better!! :)
I look much better with long blonde hair as well. Sometimes I have "bad dreams" about my hair cutting cut short! haha.

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Ok. That was awesome!! I think it's funny how "attached" men are to our hair. When I told hubs after the wedding I was chopping mine off, I think a small tear fell down his cheek!!

And for what it's worth....I thought the brown hair was kind of cute!

Gwen said...

So funny!!! I love that he fell on the floor laughing. XOXO

THE Stephanie said...

That was AWESOME!!! I actually did go dark brown (from my blond) once and I thought my husband was going to divorce me!!

I'm so going to show this to my hubby. :)

Joey said...

Not cool... not cool. THE Stephanie above ^ is my wife, and I might have a heart attach if she pulled that on me. ok, it was a little funny...

Anonymous said...

This is hilarious. Dad and I are laughing aloud --- particularly me!
I read it to him and showed him the picture..he said "she's evil" and then I read the I know, I know I'm evil. Dad said he could picture Jon and then I showed him the pic! It's all REALLY funny. Good job!

Natalie said...

too awesome. my husband doesn't care what I do, but something like that would shock him.

P.S. as a new visitor to your blog -- and I'd never seen you before - I like the brown hair!
