OK, so I talked about my new hairstyle inspirations already (check it out here) and then plugged my nose and jumped in the deep end. It's not dramatic without a "before and after" photo compilation, so here is one I took of myself- myspace style, of course! ;)
Honestly, there was nothing wrong with my cut at all. I like my hair long, but my appreciation of the Olsen-esque, boho-chic aesthetic (AKA, laziness) was not doing me any favors in the polishing-up-for-work dept. I found myself stuffing my hair in a bun quite often, and as I have not mastered the super-cute-yet-seemingly-off-hand technique, it wasn't cutting it (hehe).

I now own a short lil bob. I took these pics after work and now think it looks a little flat (esp in the rightmost pic) but I am still figuring out what to do with it ;) I am also going to have to experiment and see what it looks like wavy...can't wait!
I had my hair gal darken it a little, too, since I am enjoying my brunette phase and the last glaze had faded significantly...

So, in short (hehe), the hair saga of life continues. Thank you so much for the product suggestions you gals left in response to the previous post-- looks like I have more to add to my Wishlist!
PS- Who is already done with Christmas shopping? You are my hero...
