hair cut time

It's FRIDAY!!!
So I'm getting my hairs cut y'all.
Not sure if I'm more excited about getting pampered and some girl chit-chat with an old friend who is my new stylist extraordinaire here in Richmond or just a plain old hour to myself.
Honestly, the fresh hair-cut is just a bonus at this point.  
And like always, I'm completely bi-polar on what I want.
Long or short?
Dark or light?
I've had every cut and color in between.
Are y'all as crazy as me or does a hair-cut simply equal maintenance to you?

 Big fan of this sassy blond short do.
It looks so fun and easy to recreate with a touch of wax and my already wavy bedhead.
 But then I'm kind of in love with this long ombre look.  And I could still rock the top knot on these sweltering days.
I'm leaning pretty strongly toward this polished medium length bob like Heidi but dark like the picture below.

What do y'all think I should do?
Favorite look right now?


  1. Shorter hair always feels like it's going to be easier to maintain (to me, anyways) but I've found it's harder because you actually have to style it. Whereas longer hair you can just pull it up, braid it, top knot, etc and go. So many more options. That's just my opinion though! I think keeping it long with the ombre effect would look amazing! Be sure to post pics!

  2. I love the clean and polished look of shorter hair, but every time I chop mine off I regret it. I have long hair now and it is kind of getting on my nerves but there are so many things you can do with it. You will look darling with short hair if that is what you decide! And I'm loving that ombre' pic.

  3. My vote goes to the clean Heidi cut. Simple to style. That's what's my priority when I chose a hairstyle. Can't wait to see the new you!!

  4. Yay for haircut time! I always love the long hair but have to say I have really enjoyed my medium bob. It has been such a nice fresh change. Plus it is not too short and I can still pull it back. Whatever you choose it will look great on you! Cheers to the weekend!

  5. I love the short cuts but since I have grown out my hair I have been too chicken to cut it off over the last couple of years. I go next week so I look forward to seeing what you pick...may give me some courage!

  6. I love the bottom one for you..

  7. You're too cute!!! You are really switching it up!

  8. I'm voting for the first one! Cut & color. Any of them will look great on you though!

  9. I am kind of obsessed with the first short, messy bob. Whatever you choose you will look adorable.

  10. I love the carefree / beachy feel of the first image... a great summer look. Whatever you decide, I hope you love it!

  11. I'm the same as you when it comes to hair - can never decide what I want and it's always between polar opposite decisions. I actually colored my hair last night, but it took me weeks to finally do it because I literally had a box of highlights and a box of dark brown...couldn't decide to go back to darker or go lighter. Well, the darker won. I also can never decide between short and long. Right now I'm a happy hair doesn't hold style well - straight as straw, so it's a pain to have a cut that I have to style each day. You're lucky if yours has some natural wave/bounce to it! xoxo

  12. I'm loving the first one. I so wish I had some waves so I could have that same look! And I want to say blonde because it's summer, but that's too predictable. So, what about the shorter do with the color of the second :) Whatever you end up with will be fab, and I know you'll have fun doing it!

  13. I adore the short bob. If I wasn't so used to my long hair I would do that in a split second. Another vote for the Heidi cut.

  14. All gorgeous looks! I'm very pro-short hair. I had it last summer and it was a breeze to style and keep up with. My advice to you is to take it one step at a time (unlike what I did!). Go short, but don't change the color. Or stay long and DO change the color. One or the first anyway. I changed too much at one time and was horrified.

    Happy weekend! Enjoy your "me" time! Xo-M

  15. I vote for the blonde bob or short and sassy! I know it will be adorable- whatever you decide!

  16. has an app where you can try on these styles with your face, it actually works really well!

    Love the ombre!

  17. I'm a freak with my hair. I always cut it then decide I want it long. Then I grow it out and then I want it short. A few lovely hours in a chair without little people climbing on you or asking for things sound pretty good today. :) Enjoy!!
