Tonight I get to go visit one of my favorite girls, my hairstylist.
My mom cut my hair until I graduated from college. Up until my senior year my hair was straight, straight, straight. It didn’t tangle much, looked great down and up, and was so shiny and healthy. I wore it long, like Pocahontas, and had no idea that I would ever look back and think of it as the glory days of my hair. I loved my hair.
And then it changed.
All of a sudden it was falling out more than usual, I had these long thick waves, and I had no clue what to do with it. It was the one thing that I always liked about myself and now it was revolting against me!
So with graduation and starting a new job, we got me to the hair salon and found my girl. She is so good at her job. She understands what I find to be the most inarticulate statements of what I’m thinking and I always leave pretty pleased or pretty and pleased.
As with every upcoming hair appointment, I am going through the same questions in my head. Do I just get a trim? Do I get a new cut/style? Do I keep trying to grow it out? And these questions lead to the internet searches and a continuing debate until I sit in the chair and make a final decision.
Here are my favorites so far…
This is the original style I went to from my long locks and after it getting progressively shorter I decided to grow my hair out for my sister’s wedding. This is pretty much what I have right now. I like it, but part of me wants a change and the other part wants to leave well enough alone.
The part that wants a change is being stirred up more because it seems like everyone is chopping their hair off or going for the “clavicut.” And by everyone, I mean two of the bigger bloggers that I read and a few newscasters did and then I started noticing everyone I saw with shorter hair. But then Kate revealed her new do this week. It’s super cute!
If I kept the length but grew my layers out…
Or do I keep moving towards this…
I’ve noticed that when I look at haircuts I almost always gravitate to the blondes. Maybe it’s because you can see the details a bit more. One thing is for sure, I do not think I will ever go blonde. Another thing, I think bangs are here to stay, but should I go blunt or stay side swept?
So what do you think? What’s your favorite?
Make sure to visit Hallie before you go and enjoy your Wednesday evening to the fullest.
