I needed a change. Kind of like this time. Except this time I wanted it to be obvious that I got my hair cut. (Last time I chose picture 5 and no one (except my dear co-author Megan) even noticed)! I wanted something edgy and cool. Most likely because I am not edgy, nor am I cool. But I can fake it right? I'm also not modeling anymore--so I didn't have to worry about being "commercial." And I'm also not getting any younger. So I thought I should embrace something fresh while I'm still young. And it resulted in this.
What do you think? The picture doesn't translate it perfectly. It's a little more "piece-y" in person. I like it. I sort of chickened out and didn't go quite as short as I wanted. Take a look at my inspiration pictures at the end of the post...and tell me--do you think I should go even shorter next time?! My stylist (who knows me well and whom I love) advised me to "live with this" for a little bit first. Great advice. My major concern was maintenance. I don't have time to spend a half hour on my hair in the morning! So I'm going to see what the maintenance is like on this and how it looks as it grows out before I go even shorter...
In the first photo I've tucked the long piece behind my ear. In this one I left it out. (Oh and a con against short hair/no bangs-- I actually have to tweeze my eyebrows on a regular basis. Can you tell how crazy they are in this photo?!)
Side views--looks a little Carol Brady in the top shot but I think it's just the angle. Speaking of the top photo, I've recently discovered that unsightly dark spot near my chin/lip. Any suggestions for a product I can use to lighten that? ew!
And here was my inspiration:
I liked this but not so heavy...
I was VERY tempted to go with this...maybe next time?
Totally wasn't ready to shave my head.
Of course this one would have been the most work...but I LOVE it. Another issue- my hair texture is nothing like Halle's so I wasn't sure how it would translate.
Ok, spill- what would you change about your hair if you could? And what beauty product will erase that gross dark spot on my chin?
