It seems like every year when spring rolls around, I start thinking about chopping my hair. Last year, I actually did cut about 4 inches off, but it was still medium-length (think Olivia Palermo). This year, I’m craving something a bit more drastic. For years when we lived in the South, I had a short angled bob with bangs…oh, and did I mention I was VERY blonde? Here’s proof (this was me circa 2008):
Who is that girl?!?
It’s a long story about how I finally decided to go back to my brunette roots & give up the triple-processing/bleach job (that took 3 hours every 6 weeks at the salon…not to mention the hundreds of dollars). And, as fun as it was to be a blonde, my hair is 100 times healthier (& thicker) now that I am not damaging it with those chemicals.
So, back to my current situation…with the warmer season heading our way, I am considering cutting my hair short again. I have weighed the pros and cons and still am not quite sure if I’m ready to take the plunge. I wouldn’t be able to put it up in a high bun or braid it off to the side, like I do so often in the summer…but it would take less time to dry and I’d use less product. Here are some before & after pictures of celebrities who have chopped their locks…is it just me or do they all look better with shorter hair?!
My hair appointment is set for this Saturday (currently just scheduled a trim, but I have to decide by then). To cut or not to cut – what do you think?
