Wow. I have been through so much with my hair this year…I should have stopped here, but once I cut it, I seemed to want to go shorter and shorter and shorter…so I ended up where I am today. With a mop on my head. I did like my short cut for a little while, but it’s too high maintenance for me both in terms of getting it cut VERY frequently and having to wear makeup more often so I feel more like a girl. I’ve been trying to grow it out for a while, and I’ve decided that I’d like to get it back to a short bob, with bangs, like in this outfit picture. I looked back through years of pictures, and I really think that is my favorite cut; the bangs emphasize my eyes, and the angled bob makes my neck look longer and leaner. Honestly, I’ve really been miserable with my hair for a long time, and I decided that I didn’t want to go into my 40th birthday not being happy with it, so I’m getting it cut tomorrow. Then colored, because OMG the grays are killing me!!!
It’s still not going to look “perfect” because the back will need to grow out a lot, but at least it will be going in the right direction. Somebody please tell me to STOP messing with my hair after I get it to where I like it…I’m too old to keep experimenting 😉 No, that’s not true, I have always loved playing with my hair, but this time was different – maybe I’m more anxious about my birthday than I think?? That, and the cut just wasn’t “me.” It makes me feel sort of anxious and slightly uncomfortable with my overall style – so time to move on to something new!!
How many times have you tried a completely different hair style or color? How did it turn out?
