My hair color is 100% natural, therefore I get bored easily and think of my hair as an accessory. How I decide to style or cut it is entirely based upon the season, and what I'm wearing or where I'm traveling.
One thing I've grown to love about my chin-length bob is sweater weather (see CÉLINE Fall / Winter 17 below for reference — I have major hair envy of model Giedre Dukauskaite). It feels instantly chic. Some days I want to show off my neck in a crewneck knit (presumedly good hair days), while other days I want to hide it (along with my cowlick) in a turtleneck.
New year, new hair, new you. And PS it always grows back.
I recently gathered the courage to finally cut my hair the length that I've been wanting to try for months. This new length (that everyone seems to be into) isn't a first for me, but my neck and ears haven't been exposed this much in years.
Prior to booking my appointment, I talked to a lot of girlfriends and Instagram friends, and collectively we agreed every girl should try short hair (whatever 'short' means to you) at least once — especially if you're over the age of 30.
I'm always up for trying something new, even if I feel uncomfortable (like walking around NYC all day with my post-cut blowout — yikes! I prefer second or third day hair). But, honestly, how else do we discover new things, or find what works well and what doesn't? I think there's great value in continuing to evolve my appearance and look.
I think women tend to overlook their hair when feeling uninspired with their wardrobe or getting dressed. January and February (and much of March, if you live on the east coast) are cold and dreary, so why not save money on discounted fall clothing that you really don't need, and instead treat yourself to a haircut with a pro-stylist?
