All summer I have been contemplating giving my long locks the chop. After spending so long growing my hair, and spending the majority of my younger years sporting a short bob, I have been reluctant to get it cut and have satisfied my need for change with colour. There have been highlights, different shades of red, a pink dip dye and the faded ombre I am left with now.
Being ill these last few weeks has given me a lot of time to sit and browse the web looking for a little inspiration. As reluctant as I am to go for the chop I found myself drawn to the images of longer length bobs more and more, which is a big hair trend for autumn/winter 2013, and I think I've finally come around to the idea of giving my dry split ends the snip.
Here are a few of the cuts I'm considering...
Mid-length bob without a fringe.
I really like undone fuss free look of the first bob and the sleekness of Olivia Palermo's bob. When does her hair ever not look completely perfect?!
Mid-length bob with fringe.
I really like the textured look of these bobs and I think my face shape is better suited to a fringe.
Blunt bob with fringe.
I love how sleek and perfect these blunt cuts look, but they may be a little shorter than I'm brave enough to go.
There is one other dilemma I have when it comes to my hair and that is colour. Another reason behind going for the chop is to rid my hair of the last remains of my dry bleached ends. However I have recently found myself lusting after gorgeous lilac locks, especially with all the hype surrounding the newly released Bleach London products recently.
This would of course mean bleaching the hell out of my brown hair for a nice even white tone for the lovely pastel lilac colour I would hope to achieve. Do I really want to put my hair through all of this again? Or do I stick with a nice shade of chocolate brown?
So what do I do? Blunt or Choppy? Fringe or No Fringe? To Bleach or Not to Bleach? So many decisions for such an indecisive person...
Let me know in the comments what you think I should do.
