What's on the chopping block? That'd be my hair... (I wish there was a determined/nervous/excited emoticon to insert here)... and that is what my day will bring me at noon. Like a guillotine sentencing that I will carry out against my hair, it's time to get rid of it in one fell swoop! I recently colored my hair brown (I posted on the change here), so in a 6 month span I will go from long (Pocahontas would had approve), beach-blonde hair to short (well, medium bob length), brown hair.
Why? It's just time to change things up a bit. (And also because I feel like the trim I get every 2 months or so doesn't get rid of my split ends...they mock me in the mirror! I swear!)
Delusion aside, I looked on the web for inspiration, but since the trend these days is for lengthy locks, I didn't find much. But it's quality over quantity, right? Here are some of my fav hairdo's and style ideas:
Alexa Chung went from from a longer bob to a shorter, chunky cut but still kept her ombre coloring. I like that the ends are blunt, but that there is still a lot of texture:
At first, I didn't like this cut on Kathering McPhee. But then I realized I just didn't like the color on her (she looks better brunette), but I do like the simple style and how the her bangs add soft texture around her face.
Jessica Stroup has a great cut because she can wear it straight or wavy and tousled. I won't be going this short (barring an accident- eeps!) but I like the versatility of her cut.
