My latest and greatest hashtag that I’m very proud of? #LobLyfe Because I’m living that mid-length haircut life! I never thought I’d cut my hair because I love long hair and extensions and Va Va Voom. I do. But I also have been wanting to try short hair.
So, last month I was having one of those TWO WEEK stretches where my entire life felt like it was falling to pieces (it then picked itself back up). But in the midst of that stuff it never feels like its going to pick back up. So I got a hair cut. Why not? If I loved it, maybe it would make me feel better, if I didn’t, whatever, I was already miserable.
So, I chopped my hair off and I really, really like it. It was slightly challenging to style at first, though, I will be honest. My hair ju-ju game was off. I couldn’t really figure out how to style it. My teasing game was off. I had about two inches of roots. My color was faded. My skin was a stressed out looking mess. It wasn’t one of the best times of my life, not going to lie. I still couldn’t break through this funk. Every day I felt like I was on the verge of tears at some point. I kept having to make myself say one thing I was grateful for to pick my energy back up.
And then… slowly…
Things got better. Jobs started rolling back in. I could sleep again. My skin looked better. I got my hair color touched up. I wasn’t walking on egg shells around my own damn self.
One day, the curling iron just click-clacked the right way in my hands and my tricks were back! I had figured it out. I was back and feeling better than ever.
So, that’s my haircut story. The very dramatic tale of a LOB.
Jonathan did an amazing job. The salon had water infused with strawberries that they freshly slice every morning. I had a mid-day glass of champagne. We laughed. We talked about work. It was delightful. Man, a little pampering and some laughs can really bring you up a notch.
I told Jonathan I had a few inspo pics and when he realized I meant I had a whole album dedicated to mid-length hair cuts in my phone we both fell over laughing. What can I say? I’m an A + student. I do my research.
I complied some pics from my favorite mid-length styles so far and the video of my afternoon at the salon with Jonathan!
Sorry for all the logos on pics lately. A bunch of my photos were being stolen and put up on other blogs with people saying it was their work, which I wasn’t pumped about, because at least give me credit, it is me after all, ha! But then, a friend texted me to let me know that he was on Tinder, the dating app, and someone had taken my pics and was using them for their dating profile in Massachusetts! Yikes!! So, logo mania now.
Back to beauty. I love the shorter hair, it’s been fun!! Not sure if it will be a forever haircut or if I’ll go back and forth, I do love changing it up. But it was great to get all the scraggle-y ends cut off. My hair feels thicker and fuller, so even if I do decide to grow it out, I think it will grow out and look more thick and even from roots to ends. It’s also been SO helpful being forced to learn new hair tricks.
Thanks for watching the video and coming along with me on the haircut! Please feel free to Pin any of the photos to Pinterest! You can see more pics on Instagram @girlgetglamorous.
