Vote for my new Hairstyle!

I have been considering cutting my hair for a while. A long while. But I have waited out my impulsive urge to cut my hair… thinking that if it grows a little bit, I might like it better longer. I grew up always having long hair…and kept it that way until my senior year in high school. (which I cut it shoulder length and thought that was short. haha) After that first “major” cut, I had never been one to play it safe with my hair. I used to change it up all the time. My hair has been pretty much every length and color there is.

Of course, I had always envisioned long hair for my wedding… so I grew it out and left it long for at least 6 months after the wedding. {Then I cut it into a Pob  (The posh bob) which I have kept now for almost a year.} For some reason, I feel panic at the thought of cutting my hair short…like I am somehow going to regret all of the progress I have made in growing it out again. I guess I have romanticized long hair in my mind… forgetting all of the reasons I curse it when I have it… it takes forever to dry, I never feel like I have a “style”…I always end up throwing it up, etc.  I always feel so refreshed when I cut it short.

Now that you are up to speed with the past… let me explain my current dilemma:

37

The clip.

My hair is now long enough to be put up in the clip.

Meaning my hair is always up in the clip.

I can’t resist the temptation.

Hair. Must. Be. Cut.

Need. Style. Now.

And I need your help since I can’t make up my mind with what I want.

To give you some background knowledge to make an informed decision (and taking the risk of looking absolutely narcissistic)… I’ll show you a variety of hairstyles that I have had.

301: Long, blonde curly hair circa late 90s.

2:  I chopped my hair short and added more low lights.

3: My pixie cut. Surprisingly, this was not the shortest I’ve had it. It was really blonde then.

4: After growing it out a little… I cut it short again… this time going a dark red with blonde highlights.

5: A little longer here. I had to tone down the highlights when I was a flight attendant.

316: Added a little more of a side swept bang and flipped it out.

7: On my way to growing it out again. Lightened back up to a dark blonde.

8: Yeah. Lost my marbles and went really blonde.

9. And then really red.

10. Back to dark blonde/light brown a few months later.

3211. In the process of growing it out. I had been back to dark for a while.

12. At the longest it had been since high school. I was ready for a change.

13. And a change i got! This is the Pob I had wanted.

14. And I really liked it compared to my long hair.

15. Current. UGH. Seriously. It’s growing out, losing it’s shape and desperately needs a style! To my defense, it was extremely windy when this was taken. My hair was blowing around like a lone tumbleweed across the Arizona desert.

Now that you have an idea of where my hair has been… let me show you where I might want it to go.

Style 1: Trim it up and keep the basic Posh Bob A line style.

33

Style 2: Shorter! Keep it a little longer in front, but go shorter in back. Not so A-line-ish anymore.

34

Style 3: Short and wispy! Make it more piece-y! Keep a bang that frames your face.

35

Style 4: Go for it! Crop it short!

36

Remember…I’ve been all of these lengths.

Nothing will shock me. I’m not scared of short. Hair grows back.

My hair is naturally curly/wavy. It is not super curly so I don’t have a hard time styling shorter hair. If nothing else, it gives my hair a little bit of body when short (but is a pain in the neck to make perfectly straight when long).

Don’t hold back.

Honest opinion is needed here!

Go ahead.

Cast your votes!

My hair’s future depends on it!

Thanks!

    Aww I remember your long blonde curly hair! That’s how it was when I first met you, long, long ago. Crazy how you can pull off so many different styles! Good luck making your decision. I voted for the A-line cut.

    I like the A line bob. But honestly you will look good in any style. I loved all the pics your hair was in.
