I love my hair long, I always have. One of the many reasons is that the longer my hair is the lazier I can be with it. I’m all about buns and up-dos.
Here I am a few Monday’s ago with my standard everyday bun.
The back of my bun. I love how my hair spikes around the bun, I think it’s a fun touch. And I have a fairly nice collection of interesting bun sticks and other holders. These are very nice twisted sticks in complimentary colors.
Just for fun I took pictures with my hair down too.
I was in a big hurry because I was headed to the hair saloon. I had been thinking about doing something with my hair off an on for months now, I just wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. Some days I wanted to go short, some days I wanted to stay long and just get a little trim, some days I wanted to go crazy and add bangs, but I don’t want to commit time to my hair so I usually rule bangs out. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my hair so I just did nothing. The day before these pictures were taken I realized what was making me so unhappy with my hair. When I had my hair pulled back I felt like I was just a giant head with some brown at the edges and that wasn’t exactly a look I liked. Even when my hair was down I didn’t like how the top looked. I have pretty heavy hair and the length just pulls the top flat. So with no real plan I called up the hair saloon and made an appointment and luckily they could get me in later that same day.
I grabbed the tablet to keep Lil entertained and Lil of course and set off to meet the woman whos hand I was putting my prized possession in. I sat down in her chair and said something to the effect ‘I have no idea what I want you to do. I like to do buns so longish is good, but I’m open to short too. I kind of want bangs, but don’t want to have to “do” my hair everyday. Have a go.’ And she did and I love it.
She only cut about 5 inches off and I’m so happy. I can still do some really great buns with it like this. But I don’t totally hate it when it’s down now so that’s a plus.
