The Cut

curlsAs I mentioned a while back I’ve been pondering chopping my hair off again.  Don’t get me wrong, I love long hair because it means I can create beautiful curls like this.  But 90% of the time I style it straight or clip it up due to my busy, busy schedule.  And here recently, it’s almost always down and straight because it’s just too long to pull up quickly.

HairI set an appointment with my stylist for a color (which I was in desperate need of) and a trim, planning to take an inch off to make it a little lighter and clean up the ends.   But I hadn’t realized just how much it had grown out since my last trim until I started thinking about what I’d ask for at the appointment.  I don’t think it has been this long since high school!  This is it after blow-drying but before styling.

Then I saw this.  I love this gal’s hair and her blog!  I’ve always been a fan of a mid-length style and often come back to this length, so I was sold on this cut.

I pinned the post and took it to my appointment where I showed the fabulous Miss Bri what I wanted.  Here’s what she created!

I LOVE IT!  It’s so much easier to wash, blow dry and style in the mornings and I still have length to do some variations of up dos and curls.  I usually make it a bit more sleek on workdays, but a quick blowdry with a round brush works just fine for a casual family outing on a breezy day. 🙂

The hubs says he loves my look no matter what length my hair is (ahhh, love that lug), but I know he truly likes it short, so this is a good compromise of what he prefers and what I wish I had time for.  What’s your opinion?  Is longer or shorter better?

  1. I like your haircut much more than the one that you were inspired by. Hers looked like ‘The Rachel’ circa 2011. Yours is fabulous, and the colour is amazing!!

    1. Thanks! I think the bangs make the difference. I have a high forehead so I like to cover part of it to balance things out. I used to be blonde but LOVE being a redhead so much more! 🙂
