The Arizona summer heat is almost upon us!
(today's 5 day forecast via http://www.weather.com)
Which means it's that time of year when I start anguishing over my hair.
I start fantasizing about short hair that I can easily swim with or just wash & go.
Once in a great while I go through with cutting it off,
but mostly I chicken out and just have it thinned out a bit instead.
So you're thinking, "What's the big deal?", right?
Well first off, my hair is my crowning glory. It makes me look younger and it's my best feature.
I get compliments on my hair from total strangers quite frequently and I LIKE THAT! lol
So NOW you're thinking, "Girl, then just put it in a ponytail!"
Yeah, that's what I usually do,
but now I have constant pain in my neck and shoulders from the weight of my hair.
I'm in more discomfort than I've ever been before and really have to go through with it this time.
It's time to move past my LONG-HAIR-VANITY!
The last time I reached my breaking point was when I jumped out of the pool,
headed straight for the bathroom and
just CHOPPED IT OFF!
Then called someone real quick to fix it!!
It didn't look good for quite a while. Oops!! Haha!
HERE'S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE NOW:
The ponytail is my husband's favorite, but he's okay with cutting it
(probably cuz he's tired of me complaining about my neck....hehe)
It's naturally wavy, but I mostly use a straightener to un-kink as well as to add a little soft curl to it.
HERE ARE THE
SHORT STYLE OPTIONS
Tell me, which is YOUR favorite???
AND WHILE WE'RE AT IT, LET'S HIGHLIGHT IT TOO!
Hmmm, should I go subtle or dramatic?
WATCH FOR THE BIG REVEAL

I like the first cut, the blond A line, and for color I like the one on the bottom right hand corner!ReplyDelete
Don't cut it. Instead, go get a Brazilian Blow Out. (Admit it, you thought I was going to say brazilian blow job, which would have been wildly inappropriate. shame on you.)ReplyDelete
It will make your summer hair a ton easier to manage!!!
Please, please, please do not get an A line or a "stacked bob." They are becoming way too synonomous with Mormon Mommies and "utah hair." And they only look good on people with silky, thin, straight hair. I've yet to see a decent one on someone with thick wavy gorgeous hair like yours!!
Get the blowout instead!
I personally think you have way to much hair to pull off any of these. . . It would be like me trying to pull of your hair! I think you need to go to a stylist that can make the most of your hair in a way that is manageable and easier for you. Let's face it, you're gorgeous, so you can just about be bald and it wouldn't matter! I'd also love to see with a warm brown with a hint of red!ReplyDelete
