I finally got a haircut yesterday!!
It has been a very long time and I was itching...no, dying...for a change.
I have been sporting the long hair, no bangs, lots of layers look for a while now (see blog photo). I LOVE that look for myself. But there are always times where the grass looks greener on the other side.
This was one of those times.
I would like to start by saying... I *heart* bangs. I really do. The side swoop is my favorite, but I really, really like the short, pixie-esque bangs that many celebrities rock.
Michelle Williams for example....I lust after her hair.
I think it's because I know that I could NEVER have that cut. My locks are too thick and too wavy/frizzy/psycho. Plus I don't like to spend a lot of time or effort on my hair.
But I LOVE LOVE LOVE that style.
so I spent at least an hour a few days ago researching (really just google imaging pictures!) my face shape and celebrities with the same or similar shape and then those with a style I could realistically see myself in.
This is what I found and became slightly obsessed with:
Yep. I made a folder for it and everything...I printed out a page with my "inspirations" and politely handed them to my stylist (who had many tats and blue hair!).
So, a bang I could see myself sporting and a length that's not too short. I felt like it was a pretty realistic cut, for me.
All of that to say, I like it but, I am definitely NOT a bangs girl. They are too much work and they tickle my forehead. I think once my hair and bangs grow a bit, I will be a bit more comfortable in my new 'do.
What do you think?
P.S. I felt really awkward taking pictures of myself. I was definitely NOT going to make the all-too-famous kissy face that so many of us do. I really wanted to share it with you guys, so you can make fun of me, but if you do, you must leave a comment!
Oh! I have two sneak peeks for you!! I am just going to give you one word hints...there will be more later!
That's it for now!
