What's on my mind? HAIR!

Friday, January 30, 2015

Gettin' my hair done today. Pretty excited about that.

I've been growing my hair for a few years now. It's long. It's fine. It's THICK. It sheds everywhere. It ends up in my food. And now that I have a baby, it is constantly being pulled and tugged by her little hands. Yesterday I found a strand wrapped snuggly around her little wrist... Long hair is SO overrated. 

So, I'm ready for a change!!! Here's me now. I couldn't even fit all of my hair in one picture, but you get the idea.

My New Years Resolution was to wear more lipstick!

Here are the things I like.  What do you think? Bangs? No Bangs? Short bangs, long bangs? I've been obsessed with pinning hair-spiration to my Pinterest Board the last two weeks.  I really like the wavy bobs à la Ahn Co Tran, but my hair is pretty straight.  If you look at my board, you'll notice the cuts get shorter and shorter... In the picture it was just washed and air dried, and that's about all my hair does... I pretty much always wear it in a bun or ponytail. I love the idea of doing a braid or something fancy... but who am I kidding, I never do it.

Via Pinterest...

I really like the idea of an exposed neck. It's funny, it's like all of a sudden I've just had it with my long hair. I've went from loving it to being slightly grossed out by it... At the same time, I'm afraid to lose all these years of length!

So, opinions, thoughts? I want something fun and stylish - I feel like my hair is lacking those two elements right now. I'm going in for the chop at 3, wish me luck!

  1. I think you'd look lovely with bangs and a bob to touch the jawline, like the girl in the above photo, bottom third from the right. I think it would suit the shape of your face :)

  4. Oooh you are inspiring me! I just basically stopped cutting and colouring my hair after my second child - cheaper and easier to manage day to day in a ponytail. But....mine is soooooo long now, like yours, and a change would be fabulous. I love the short bob, (Kirsten Dunst). I think you'd suit it with your face shape. I always end up annoyed at the blowdrying required of a bob though.

  5. I love the shoulder skimming bob! I can't wait to see what you pick!

  6. The look in the lower left corner is classy and simple to keep. If your hair is long enough, please consider donating it to Locks of Love or a similar charity that provides wigs to children living with chemotherapy. When I cut off my LONG hair, I went with wash and go layers and have never looked back. Good luck.

  7. Funny, I'm in the exact same situation (minus baby)! I've been thinking about similar styles to the ones you've posted here, but I can't make my mind up. Looking forward to seeing what you went with :)

  8. Your hair is gorgeous and I love that a new cut or just a trim can inspire us gals. I love your etsy shop and your designs. I am working on a sketch a day and am going to sketch something from your shop. Do you ever use any animal patterns?
