I know most brides-to-be grow their hair in an effort to create the infamous bridal updo. As I stated in an earlier post, I am still on the fence as to whether I will wear my hair up or down. I had high hopes that my hair and I would make it until June. But the truth of the matter is that it was becoming a huge pain to dry and style. Most days, I didn’t do much in the realm of styling. I just kinda let it chill…ever so limply. Case in point, The Long and Lifeless Look.
I have kept my hair medium to long in length since high school, however, I’ve start to think…as I move into my late 20’s, I should be doing something more with it. So rather than force myself to look unfortunate for the next six months, I decided to just “trim it a little”. When I got in the stylist’s chair, I realized I wanted more than a trim. I found myself telling her to get rid of the shag…and take up the length…and layer it…and give me side swept bangs. Oh, and I colored it while I was there, too (a bit darker). Here’s what we came up with: So yeah, oops, I cut my hair before the wedding. Shoot me! Any of you ladies get impatient like me and reach for the scissors before your big day rather than after?

    Ah! I just did the same thing. Really, the same style! I mean, they stylist said you don’t need that ugly long hair to pull into an updo. Why suffer?

    Lovely.

    And I see no reason that you have to grow your hair out for a wedding. If you can rock short hair, do it.

    I like mine more in the range you cut yours, but I’ve been rather lazy about getting it cut as I do like the protection from the cold long hair provides.

    Well, it’s not like you went for a pixie cut! It’s still long! Your short hair is my long hair. My hair just can’t get as long as yours without getting really limp and unhealthy looking.
    I just got a haircut yesterday. I took 2″ off (it was your new length) and had it dyed (just one shade darker in a semi-permanent dye).

    I think your new look is great, and it’s long enough you’ll still be able to do an updo if you want!

    Love your hair cut. It’s not too short for up. What kind of up-do wereyou looking to do?
    Whatever you decide I think the cut frames your face very well.

    I told my roommate, mother, and fiance DONT LET ME CUT MY HAIR. I have already been tempted twice since then… I need to go in for a trim but no it will end in a drastic change — it always does! I think you still have a great length though that you can do tons of things with!

    P.S. First time reader today and love the blog… will definately become a follower πŸ™‚
