hair style: from long to short

When it comes to my hair, I'm pretty simple. I rarely blow dry it, occasionally curl it, don't need to straighten it, have never dyed it.

Lately though, I've been thinking that my hair needs a change. My hair cut style has always been the same - keep it long {just a trim} with long layers - but the thought of shorter hair seems really appealing to me. For me, this would mean cutting off up to six inches. While it may not seem like a lot to some, it's a pretty big and daunting number to me. But I am slowly warming up to the idea of chopping off the length and trying something new just in time for the start of autumn.

All these ladies make having shorter {or I guess medium} length hair so lovely! And they style it so well. So, any advice? Do you think I should just take the plunge and do it?

  1. I love that length hair-- I have been trying to capture it for a while and keep getting it wrong! These ladies have really pulled off a beautiful look! (and I love that they let a little messy/ wave show! Much more natural!!)

  2. I gave my hair a serious chop back in May and it was seriously the best decision EVER. My hair was down to my waist and having it shoulder length gives it life again. I'd say just go to a stylist you really trust and stress that you don't want it to look triangular. That was my biggest fear, but with the layers he put in it works!


Thanks for stopping by and writing a little something! I love reading your comments! :] xo.
