So this past weekend I took a pretty big plunge for me, I cut my hair! In all honesty it was kind of a happy accident. I love having long(ish) hair. I've gotten so used to it over the past few years and I just prefer the way it looks on me. But the constant torture I put it through really damages it. Let me just say that I am religious about washing my hair-EVERY SINGLE DAY- I never skip a day, which means that I am forced to blow dry it-EVERY SINGLE DAY- to get it looking somewhat presentable. So yeah, basically my hair hates me. I've been trying to treat it well with deep conditioning hair products but nothing has really done a great deal of repair. Which really left me with one choice- chop off the dead ends. Because I loved my length I'm always against cutting it, which means that my dead ends were really long. So when I asked my hairdresser to make the cut a little more came off than I was prepared to say goodbye to.
But I kind of think it was a sign. Lately I've been dreaming of several LOB (Long Bob) hair cuts that all the celebs are sporting, but I was just too chicken to take the plunge. Well I jumped in head first!
I'm obsessed with Giuliana's cut, it's so sleek and elegant. (Plus it looks fab on her).
But the style I have wanted more than anything is Olivia Palermo's LOB. I mean has there ever been more gorgeous hair?? (Now if I only ever get bold enough to try a middle part).
Although I'm already missing my longer locks, my looks and feels 1000% healthier. I was exactly what it needed. Now I resolve to keep up with regular hair cuts so it can grow again, but still maintain healthy ends.
