New Haircut – I Got a Bob!

May 1, 2013

Hello, friends!  Sooooo yesterday I finally made it to the hair salon for a much needed trim and I am so pleased with my new haircut!  I’ll just jump right in and show you the before-and-after:

haircut_before_and_afterSo obviously I’ve been growing my hair out for quite some time, considering my last cut was a pixie (way back in October… I think).  In the meantime, however, it became super shaggy and just totally lost it’s shape, so I knew I needed to do something while I wait for my hair to grow.  That’s when I started searching the internet for some kind of cute in-between cut that I could get and I found this super cute bob hairstyle on model Alison Nix:

We’ll see, really, because I am always changing my mind about my hair.  I may get bored and just chop it off into a pixie again…  Either way, I love my new hair and I can’t wait to keep playing with it.  Today I decided to pin the bangs back and wear it in a slightly retro style, tomorrow I might try a headband or a scarf!

    Love it! I’m like you, always getting bored with my hair (I usually change the color though, I’m unnaturally attached to my long hair). You definitely can rock a bob though, very adorable!

      Thank you so much!! I totally know what you mean though – I feel like the longer my hair is, the more obsessed with it I am (i.e. A LOT), but I think I prefer short hair on me, it’s just easier :)
