Last week, I asked you all to help me pick out a haircut. I never do much different to my hair for a few reasons…1. I cut my hair short when I was 19. Hated it. It looked horrible and was time-consuming to style. My thick hair looks better long. 2. I don’t want to stray far from my natural color. This way it is relatively inexpensive to keep up. I usually get partial highlight/low lights (to primarily cover the stray grays).
Between the 3 cuts, I narrowed it down to the 2 above. The first one was basically my haircut, so I cut it out of the equation. With the 2 cuts, I was worried about getting a heavy bang before summer. It is hot with bangs. And the style falls in the humidity. However, I still thought it would be fun to go a bit shorter than picture 2.
The result? I combined the two. I had the stylist cut off about 5 1/2 inches in length (eeks!), and then cut a slight bang that could easily blend in if I decided I didn’t love it.
I have worn it straight and curly. When it is curled, the bangs don’t really show at all, so if I want to show off the bangs, I have to straighten it. I am liking the length, even if it feels really short to me. To be honest, I have learned with long hair that only other people with long hair notice cuts. Otherwise, if it’s below your shoulders, it’s still long :).
I am still thinking about the heavier bang for the next cut. I go about 3-4 times a year, so it would be just in time for a fall look.
