Every year I go through a phase where I want to change up my hairstyle. If you’ve been following along, you might remember that last April I chopped my hair off and donated it to Locks of Love. I was excited to have enough hair to donate, and was ready to don a shorter style. Well, now more than a year later I find myself pondering that same old question of what to do with my hair? My layers have grown out, and thanks to my daily dose of Synthroid I am convinced that my hair is thinner than it once was.
I’ve not so secretly envied (and admired) those girls who can go to the hair salon with an inspiration picture and a vision in mind and stick to their convictions once the sheers come out. But I am not one of them. I go in with the best intentions of cutting three, four, five, even six inches off and then I get scissor-shy and leave with a mere “trim.” I have been debating trying bangs, a look unfamiliar to me since I was a child, going for the ombré trend (are we still doing that?), or just finally embracing that short bob that I have always liked. Since it seems I am still a bit indecisive when it comes to saying goodbye to my long locks, I will admire those brave beauties who took the plunge and are living much lighter — until I can work up the nerve to do the same.
