My meager attempt at new ‘do

March 22nd, 2011 9 Comments

I desperately want to do something new with my hair.  A million people have told me, “You look so much better with long hair.” That’s nice to hear, but it’s just not very exciting on  a daily basis.

Everyone seems to have bangs these day.  I love the look on other people, but I won’t make the cut.  For years as I child my Mom forced me to have bangs so I refuse to consider it now.  To traumatic!

This was the best I could do for a temporary fix (tumblrs click through to see the pics).

You’re probably thinking that a ponytail is not revolutionary.  And obviously you’re right.  But for a girl who employs bobby pins as often as her toothbrush, letting the front loose was an attempt to be a little more interesting.  After looking at the pics, I now see that the only notable part about them is the turquoise tile and the killer hoops by Claudia Labao (a gift from the designer herself).

As for my hair, even though it was a slight change, people gave me mixed reviews.

More importantly, I had fun with it….although, I don’t think I would have enjoyed it as much without the bright red lip.

I’m posting this because I feel like you might be looking for a change as the weather warms up too.  I actually had a dream about going brown last night, but there’s no way I’m straying from blonde (it’s too hard to go back).  Do you see a pattern forming with my restrictions around my hair?

What are you considering??  Let us know below or even better  send me pics of the style you’re loving right now.

    Have you thought about going shorter? I always thought you’d look good with a pixie cut.

    • Kevin (oh friend of mine) you’ve seen me with short hair!! And you did shower me with compliments, but I’m not going back there again either. It took 2 years to grow out.

    I think you look a little like Christina Applegate with longer hair. Not that it’s a bad thing, just an observation.

  • I’m right there with you. My hair is really long right now and I love it, but I feel like i’m in a rutt. Everyday I just straighten and go. I was thinking bangs, but i remember being little and they would bug the heck out me. Also considering getting highlights back but not sure. I’m thinking a couple inches off, but that may be all. No matter what you get i’m sure it will be pretty. Also we just need to remember that it’ll grow back and heck if it’s awful there are some really cute hats out there. :-)

    maybe highlights and side swept bangs (something like ashley olsen has)

    • Well, yes, I would love for my hair to look like that!!! But I’m sure a stylist spent at least an hour and a half blowing and curling her hair.

      As for the color, I have considered putting some honey in my hair….But I think I’ll do one more summer of bleach blonde first! Maybe 30 will be the decade of “natural” for me ;)

  • I truly loved your hair when you had first cut it (back in New York, when you said goodbye to your extensions)- it was so chic! I understand that you don’t want to go back to that, I just wanted to say that I loved that a lot more than your long hair :)

    • Susan, That’s really sweet. I loved it short too! Thanks for the sweet note.
