I haven’t cut my hair since December 2007. You are reading that correctly. It’s been almost a year and a half. That’s just bananas.
Reasons for not cutting my hair:
1) I’m lazy. Going to a salon takes time and effort. Taking the time to “style” my hair every morning takes time and effort. I love the freedom of pulling my hair into a clip, ponytail or bun.
2) I’m cheap. Going to a salon costs moolah.
But I’ve reached a breaking point. I was vacuuming the other day and noticed that the vacuum stopped working. I flipped it over and saw so much hair stuck in the bristles of the vacuum that I think Cousin It would be envious.
I’m finding so much hair all over the house that I feel like it’s committing suicide. Even it can’t stand to be this long.
So now what? I’ve always gone between long hair and a short bob since high school. I was thinking about going for the short bob but then realized that I know way too many girls with that haircut these days that I just can’t bring myself to do it (and to you gals reading this post now, your hair looks fab. I just can’t have the same haircut as you).
I started googling hairstyles. Thoughts?
Short-ish. Cute. I have long, side-swept bangs that I’d like to keep so this could work.
Okay, this is a bob but it’s a bob with bangs. I’m almost embarrassed to admit I love Katie Holmes’ hair but it is so cute. But would cutting my hair like Katie require me to become a scientologist? Yikes.
I also love Nicole Ritchie’s hair. And yes, this is almost exactly like the first picture – just styled differently.
Nicole – with shorter bangs! Okay, clearly I’m sticking to a specific style of short-ish hair with long side-swept bangs.
Jeremy pointed out that all of the hairstyles I’m drawn to are like the haircut I had when I was little:
I’m between 2-4 in the pictures above. What can I say, it was a good haircut.
