I've rocked it before, thought it was fun and figured after two years with long hair, why not try something different. It really wasn't that hard to style, I think it was harder to grow than anything. I kind of loved my bangs, too. So I was set. Appointment made, pictures procured and on the bus to big hair cut town.
|Me circa 2012|
But, now that my hair appointment is today, I'm gun shy. 100% gun shy. I've never had hair this long in my life and I love the versatility it gives me with styling. It is easier to go between washings, since I can throw it up and that means more sleep less getting ready time in the morning [big deal]. I thought a sassy short hair cut was what I wanted, but now it's not.
Enter the LOB.
So here's where I need your help. What kind of lob do I get? And what kind of color? And, do I get bangs? I usually have a pretty good of a sense of the LOOK I'm going for, but because I've recently changed my mind my thoughts are a bit all over the place.
These are two of my favorite LOBS [which I have pinned *here*] and there are plueses and minuses to both. I love the look of the first one, but the layers are really short. I don't think I want anything much shorter than my chin, besides bangs. The second look is longer, which I like but would it look good with side swept bangs?
|I have two schools of thought when it comes to my color. I know that ombre is kind of on the out, but there is something I love a bout a soft ombre look. Something a bit natural with a sunny ombre highlight is kind of what I'm thinking. I don't just want one dimensional color, I love how her color changes with the different hair styles.|
And then there's the big change. The hip to the hip funky fresh look. I LOVE this girl's hair color [and style] and kind of want to try something totally different. BUUUUUUUUUUT, her ends are blunt and clean where mine would probably be a bit more tousled. I'm concerned that would ruin the fresh look of the hair tips.
I spent some time searching through pictures and this is the best one I could find that shows what I might look like with a LOB and slight bangs. This was a fun hair style and one I wore for a long time. Maybe it's time to go back to a tried and true style.
Okay, there are my crazy hair thoughts. HELP ME OUT, because Le Husband is no help. He says I only have a few more 'good hair' cuts left until the Mom cut [seriously] so he said I should just do it now. Ugh! that's a good point but I'm still unsure I want to have hair too short to put up.
Let me know what you think about my choices or shoot me a different look if you want. I know it's just hair, but I do want to love what it looks like coming out of the salon today. Oh yeah, did I mention I have a wedding coming up, too? Yeah, I do, so no mohawk suggestions!
Have a great day, ladies!
