I felt it was time for a chop and change in the hair department.
Last year I made the resolution that I will give my hair a good, healthy cut; not a few inches, not below the shoulders, almost a bob! However I was quite indecisive when it came to sitting in the hairdresser’s chair, with a huge pair of hungry scissors waiting to devour my locks. I gradually overcame the doubts, and one appointment at a time, I finally got the hair I had been waiting for.
At first, it was quite the shock. I tried to pull a fake smile to cover up the horror of what I had done to my hair. Later on, when the shock had worn off, I resorted to Pinterest and Tumblr for some inspiration to help me through this crisis. And I must say, it did bring about some brilliant ideas!
Today, I have no regrets. Having short hair has really changed my daily routine for the better. I can confess, I never brush my hair anymore. In fact (ironically) with less of a mop, I can actually experiment so much more. A few of the experiments I have linked below for you to try…
This is great for that effortless look, and also keeps your hair off your face. I sometimes use this metallic bar hairband to add a little fun to it, you can get it here.
I had been after one of these for ages, and lucky enough I found it in my stocking this Christmas (Oh, the joys of ASOS’ wish-list). It makes a boring pony look instantly snazzy. You can get it here.
This is by far my favourite look. It keeps your hair off your face, but in a stylish way. And the clips add such classiness, which I adore! You can get them here.
So for the ladies out there who are thinking of starting the new year with a new do’, DO IT! You won’t regret it.
