I had 5 inches cut off my hair... never noticed. seared my eyebrows off.. never noticed.. backed the truck into a tree... (very small dent mind you) that was the first thing he noticed!!! men!!!
At least it's not just mine, I thought he was just oblivious! One time he went to Austrailia for a week. At the time he left I had my usual dark auburn color hair to the middle of my back....when I picked him up from the airport I had gotten my hair done blonde (really blonde) and cut shoulder length....never said a word for three days until I pointed it out! But then again he doesn't usually notice when I've lost or gained 50 lbs either.

Mine in his job, by his very nature... likes to complain... So he looks for the negative.. I occasionally get a compliment out of him with no prompting... but you can see the vein in his forehead ready to burst! LOL... jk... he tries to say something nice everyday. 22 years of that discussion... if you are going to say something negative, or use constructive criticism, you have to counter that with something positive. SWEETHEART... she says sarcastically...

LOL! Friend of mine had same experience with her DH. She is a very dark brunette and had her hair streaked blonde very dramatically. DH never said a word.

Believe me he still hasn't lived it down! Not that I think he's improved much but he at least tries to notice changes...even when they aren't there!
