New Haircut

by jennine on May 13, 2010

new hair cut

How is it that everyone has perfect hair, but when you ask them how they do it…they say they hate their hair? Some women love their hair, but part of me thinks they’re making it up. Not that I want to encourage self deprecation, but c’mon. Really?

In January, I got a terrible, soccer mom cut. It was horrible. Some people told me to get a new cut, but it was too short to do anything to it without going into Pixie territory. Not that there is anything wrong with Pixie cuts, but been there, done that. So I waited, and waited. Finally my hair got to the point where I was starting to like it (five months later), but it was also time to go back to the chair.

A friend introduced me to Rory of Cowboys and Angels at a dinner one night, I thought she was really cool, and she told me to come in and she’d fix my hair. I waited with trepidation, it’s always scary when you let your friends cut your hair…it can really ruin things. If things go wrong, imagine the tears and yelling, “I trusted you!” Well, I put that aside and went in, not knowing what to do. At first I thought I’d want my bangs back, but they are so much work, and I spent a lot of time growing them out. I wanted something more geometric, however, my hair is naturally amoeba shaped. So we talked about doing something softer, with layers, and this is what she did. It took a few days to figure out if I really loved it, but I literally don’t have to do ANYTHING except put a tiny bit of styling creme in to tame it a bit.

The layers are a bit edgier than my last cut… I’m trying to have a attitude, though no one will believe it. ;)

So what’s next for my hair?

Thanks to Gheri from Because I’m Addicted for bringing to my attention the hair I want by the end of the summer…it’s the perfect shade of brown and I love the softness of the cut. Not to mention the Chanel Resort collection, is pretty fantastic in it’s own right. If only I could wear shorts like that without being offensive…

We’ll see if that’s possible!

haha,you are too kind. :)

Gorgeous! It looks very chic and effortless.

Is your hair naturally curly? If so, this cut really really works with your hair. I think with hair, we should work with what we have to create the best version that we can.

It looks wonderful! So glad you’re happy with it-it suits you perfectly, and the waves are lovely!

25 Deepti May 14, 2010 at 6:24 am

I love your new haircut. I got my hair cut yesterday too. I was bored with my bob, so this time I went with layers. I agree with you about people who have great hair always answer with a ‘really? i hate them’ statement. Being modest is one thing and but this recurring statement irritates me. Come on, I love my hair and I am proud to say that I am. And if someone compliments me I just say a quiet thank you and let it be….

That cut works perfectly with your natural waves which is really tough to pull off! Happy to hear you found someone who can give you a great style, it’s so disheartening to have a bad cut - and to have to pay for it! Beautiful.
