It is time for a chop...
For most of my life I have had long hair - at one point it reached my hips and I would occasionally be able to sit on it. When I got older and wanted to try a new hairstyle, the only thing that would really change was the colour and which side my parting should go to. At around the age of 15/16 I went through a "punk/emo/rocker" phase - like most teens - and I dyed my hair pitch black with platinum blonde sections. Oh... and a massive side fringe. After that phase I dyed my hair bright red and I have never changed it since.
It has been nearly 8 years since I first dyed my hair red and I am getting tired of it. The colour only really impresses me for a little while after it has been freshly dyed and then I get bored with it. I am also at the stage where I am getting frustrated with my hair length. The longest section of my hair currently is down to my hips and it just looks dead and styling it seems more of a chore - my go to hair style is a pony tail OR half up/half down. I just need to love my hair again. Apologies if that sounded vain, but my hair was my favourite feature, but now it just stresses me out.
It probably doesn't help that my scalp has had a very bad case of [something similar to] eczema so I get easily embarrassed about the dry/itchy/flakes - lovely subject.
Anyway. My current obsession is the long wavy bob that a lot of celebrities have taken on. It juste looks effortless and really chic. I have been playing with my hair and I think that I can pull off some of these lengths - maybe not the top middle one, but she looks amazing, so I had to share. I need to make an appointment with my favourite hairdresser and get this birds nest sorted, because it is not impressing anyone.
What is your opinion on the long bob? Love it? Hate it?
