It’s That Time Again

Internet, I’d say twice a year I make you pick out a haircut for me. Man, I’m just a TYRANT aren’t I?

So hey, guess what I’ll be doing tomorrow? Snip snip!

So, do you have your voting fingers ready, because here’s the deal. My hair right now is kind of Ugs-ville. I got it cut 6 months ago, and what do you know, if you don’t keep it up or something, it just turns into a shaggy mess that doesn’t cooperate:
Blazer weather is back! YESSSSS! #ootd

I’m not saying I look like Medusa or anything, but it takes a long time and a lot of product to work with it in the morning to make it look decent, and by the middle of the afternoon it looks crap-tastic no matter what I do, so therefore I can never leave the house without a ponytail holder for fear of an EMERGENCY. It’s time to let my favorite hair genie work her magic, is what I’m saying, but I need to bring some inspiration.

Here are the random picture options from Pinterest (what did we do without Pinterest?):

Option A – Super short with bangs

short hair

Pros: Hello, how cute is this hair? It’s short. It’s sassy. It has bangs! But not COMMITMENT bangs, you know. And she looks like she has a rounder face so maybe if I do something similar I won’t look like a weeble wobble. Thumbs up.

Cons: There are two. One is that short hair gives me workout rage. I LOVE LOVE LOVE short hair in real life but I have yet to find an acceptable system in my workout life to really enjoy working out with short hair. The second is that I anytime I have hormonal breakouts (chin/neck) there just won’t be ANY hair safety net. All my business will just be OUT ON THE STREET. Nervous about that.

Option B – Leave the Length, Change the Part, Get Some Layers

Jessica Biel

Pros: I kind of love a middle part and I have been wanting to change it for a while. It would be nice to actually cut my hair with the part in mind. Other pro – it’s taken 6 months for me to get any length going, and it is a GREAT length for workouts. I can put it up, get it out of my face – YAY! Also this cut is versatile style wise. Maybe I just need some layers and shape to my current hair length.

Cons: Let’s be real, I am not Jessica Biel. I am also not doing any color and part of why this style looks so great is because she has some fun ombre action going for her. Also, this overall look requires curling, which I don’t usually do on the daily, but could. But then again, my hair is very fine/thin and I imagine from this picture hers is not.

Option C – Side Part, Layers, Bangs

side part short with layers and bangs
Pros: This is cute, same side part. More layers. Bangs. The haircut definitely has SHAPE. Clearly I’m potentially feeling out bangs again (as I always do.) Scarves look cute with shorter hair!

Cons: It’s getting to be winter and hats look stupid on me when I have short hair. Let’s revisit Workout Rage.


So — let’s discuss!

    I think you should try Option C – a foray into short and bangs and then make the leap to Option A next time. That’s what I did when I went super short and I LOVED it. But needed stepping stones. Then I got bored and grew it out. It’s just hair. Nothing a few bobby pins and a couple months can’t fix.

    I think you’d look super sassy with a side part! (I have a cowlick so I’ve never been able to do anything else)

  2. Elizabeth says:

    I like option a and c. Option b looks like fake hair that you only get when a hair stylist spends three hours on your hair. However, let’s also talk about girl threes awesome boot sock things and maybe where I could get some for meeeeeee.

  3. Laura says:

    Option A or C! And I must say I love Option C but do you have a tendency to always tuck your hair behind your ears when you wear it down? I ask because I do this subconsciously, and I think it would detract a little from the style in option C. So if you’re prone to it then I’d go for option A! If not I think either of the two could work really great.

  4. Mariah B says:

    Definitely C… Best of both worlds, right? 🙂

  5. Emma says:

    third one!

  6. Libbi says:

    i vote for C. Also, odds are likely that after 6 months without a cut they’ll need to take a decent amount of length off. i’ve learned the hard way (even with long hair) no amount of healthy eating and practices can counteract the fact that hair needs regular maintenance. I now have an appt every 8 weeks. because i want my hair to be healthy and grow out.

  7. Linda Sand says:

    How do you feel about trimming your own bangs? Because 6 months of not cutting them…

  8. Christine says:

    A A A! Not only would it look really cute but you’ve got the sass to rock it!

  9. Brie says:

    A! I cut mine short based off one of your polls from last year and I love it! Bobby pins for working out. I just side pin the bangs and leave the rest alone. I do miss winter hats! But not enough to grow it out.

  10. Carmen says:

    Like most of the previous comments, I like both A and C. I actually used C as my own hair inspiration earlier this year and it turned out great! I too have fine, thin hair. The shape of the cut made it very quick and easy to do, and it always turned out really cute. Another plus of C is that it grows out very nicely.

  11. Jess says:

    Option A! Go for t!

  12. Maxmill says:

    A -and that’s from a professional.

  13. Sharon says:

    Absolutely option AAAAAAAA all the way!!!!!!!

  14. Kate says:

    I love the look of A, but if you’re feeling wary of going that short right away, you could start with C and then move to A on your next cut.

    I agree with what someone above said about B — love the look, but it does seem like stylist magic that would be hard to reproduce on your own every day.

  15. Sizzle says:

    Loving 3 for you!

  16. Audrey says:

    I like option C, but maybe with a touch more length so you could at least pull the front half off your face when you work out.

  17. Sarah B says:

    I like C too for a new cut. But you could probably do B right now (or a version of it). Get yourself a flat iron that is rounded and heats on the sides. Look up how to curl your hair with a flat iron on pinterest/utube. Part it in the middle and try it out, now before the cut. I do this for my fine straight hair. It works wonders and takes me about 3 min for loose curls/waves.

  18. Lisa says:

    I love C.

  19. Stacey says:

    A & C are so similiar that you are obviously leaning toward short with bangs… so DO IT! Both are super cute and you could wear sweatbands/hair pins when working out! Love your adventurousness (?)!!!!!

  20. I love option A. I actually loved it when I saw you pin it. If I ever had the guts, I would maybe do it myself. But right now I’m really loving my mermaid hair.

    And the good news with option A is that it’s fall/winter. So if you ever get any breakouts on the neck, you can put on a cute scarf 🙂

  21. Renee says:

    Option C. And stop by the beauty supply store on the way home for some clips and bands to hold it back at the gym. When I chopped my hair my amazing hairstylist recommended cutting a pair of old tights into a headband to hold it back.

    Have fun at the salon!

  22. Noblepower says:

    I think the tide is leaning towards the shorter cuts – I also like A and C, I lean a little towards C but think both are super cute.
    Like a couple of other people, I think B is full of hidden stylists hiding just out of sight, and if she has fine hair like us, possibly extensions.

  23. Melanie says:

    I took the exact picture of option C to my hairdresser for my latest style. It’s a great haircut!

  24. Stephanie says:

    C! Super cute – I wish I had the balls to cut my hair in any kind of fashionable way. But sadly, I just leave it mostly one length and straighten it every day.

  25. ONEWEIRDWORD says:

    That outfit on you looks awesome. I like the necklace with that top – and the cardigan with it is so cute.

  26. ONEWEIRDWORD says:

    Oh yes, and I like the cut somewhere between A and C – also because that’s pretty much what I have right now. And you can style it with product so the front “flaps” go smoothly behind your ears – makes it look like an even shorter cut – nice for variety.
