I have been feeling very “blah” recently about my appearance…
I think it stems from spending 6 weeks covered in paint and in daggy painters gear full time and then some.
But even since moving in I haven’t been making enough of an effort, and I feel it!
My clothes are starting to feel way too tight, alerting me to the fact that I have not been looking after myself and my health properly in the busy-ness, my eyebrows are often way too overdue and I can actually not remember the last time I had a hair cut!!
Not to mention that in the last year I seem to have gone from no grey hair to half a head of them!!!!
This morning I was driving into the city to pick up a new (to me) couch that I purchased for a bargain price and I decided it was time to take action…
I have so much hair that it gets very heavy and as a regular (read daily) headache sufferer I wondered how much difference cutting it short would make. It’s Spring here and starting to warm up so I figured now was the time of year to take a risk with super short hair. Then if I don’t like it it will be long again by next Winter (and my neck won’t get so cold).
I knew that if I didn’t do the big chop today then I’d chicken out, or find an excuse not to spend the money so as soon as I got home I got on the phone to a hairdresser and made an appointment for this afternoon…
This was me this morning with my looooots of hair…
But if I’m honest this is the frizzy ‘Mummy bun” that I’ve been supporting 99% of the time recently….
Yep that’s my scruffy bun that takes about 3 seconds to make each morning. Assuming I do it fresh that morning that is. Often I don’t because the more you mess with curly hair the more out of control it looks.
Anyway this afternoon I went from that look
to this look
To this look…
Yep it’s blonde and what I guess is classed as a pixie cut.
I have never been this blonde OR this short before.
It’s taking a bit of getting used to and I’m not sold on the colour yet. But the comfort and lightness of having short hair is awesome!!
I just hope that it wears ok on me and isn’t too high maintenance.
But so far it feels great to have a “style” for a change.
Do you find yourself in a rut with your look?
Next step is do something about my waistline I guess. Can’t say I’m excited about that challenge, but it needs to be done.
