My New 'Do + Sneak Peeks

I finally got a haircut yesterday!!


It has been a very long time and I was, 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!

First, home:

Second, etsy:

That's it for now!

Keep Posted,

the rave


  1. Love the "do!" I think you really are a bangs girl, you just don't know it yet. They really compliment your face. You'll get used to the tickle!

    Is that the new home? Tell me more, please.

    Love you!


  2. I love the hairdo! You are beautiful with or without bangs...short...long...or in between! Cool house can't wait to see it! Can't wait to see your etsy sight either! Love you!

  3. Beautiful girl and beautiful hair. I'm pretty sure you couldn't go wrong even if you tried. In fact, I'm positive you could pull off the short bob, but completely understand what a identity changer that one is. It would take a bit longer to grown back out vs the bangs you just cute. You look great with the bangs!

  4. Love the bangs and the rest of the hair. You are gorgeous as usual! Miss you guys. Margaret
