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:
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
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
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
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!
