Pick My Next Hairstyle.

There’s something about February. Something that makes my skin itch and my heart restless. I feel cooped. Stagnant. In need of some sort of change.

Eighty degree weather would help, but since last time I looked outside ice was falling from the sky, I have to look elsewhere for satisfaction.

And you know what the easiest thing to change is? My hair.

Yep, I’m thinking about doing something drastic. But before I do, I need your opinion (us Libras, we’re not good with decisions).

Should I go the short, fire-engine red route like this look from ModCloth?

Super hip or just say no?

Perhaps I should just do a variation of my standard bob (Photo credit Celebrity Hairstyles).


Trendy or impossible for fine hair?

Or should I go all out with a platinum pixie?

Daring or dumb?

Of course, it’s entirely possible that once ensconced in my hairstylist’s chair, I’ll say, ” just a trim, please.”  But right now, I’m feeling adventurous.

So what do you think, lovely readers of mine? What would you tell the woman with the magic scissors?

    Okay I am totally diggin’ that first cut. And I kind of have that third cut (I could probably even style it all spiky like in the pic) so if you get it we should SO photoshop our pictures together. Hee!

      We totally should. The first one seems to be the consensus, so I just might get it!

    I told my hubby I’m chopping my hair off and dying it blonde like the third cut. Lol. This is not going to happen any time soon because dangit I’m dedicated to finally having long hair but why does it have to take soooo looooong? Ugh. I should tell you I’m also a Libra and I used to change my hair style all of the time but it’s been about two or three years now since I’ve done it. I’m holding up well. Well, enough about me…geez, shut up Ashley. I like the third one but if you’re feeling iffy I would say try number two first then go for three! Hope you love it!

      Yeah, I’ve actually had longish hair for 3 years now…which is a world’s record for me. I like i, and yet I don’t. It’s the conundrum.

      Thanks. I’ll have to keep you in suspense a little longer. We’re iced in today.

    The bob. Not the pixie………..it’s a hard look to pull off and if you can pull it off, then you’ll be completely adorable forever and ever…….

    I just like a little bit of hair……….so the first and last, make me feel naked.

      I don’t think I’m brave enough for the pixie. I had one once upon a time, but then I was about 40 pounds lighter and 12 years younger.

    I LOVE the first one in fact, I might have to have it.

    I think you’d look really cute with #1!

    The first one! Although I do like the last one too. Show us pics when it’s done?

    Totally agree! The first cut is rockin’ hot. And the color is fantastic too. Post pics so we can see the final results!

    I love that second cut. Really cute.

    I really like the modified bob. And that style is very good for fine hair – like mine. haha
    I know what you mean about getting restless this time of year. I really like my cut, so every now and then I tinker around with color.

    I actually took that same second picture to my stylist and had a similar cut done 5 months ago (we kind of meshed some pics and figured how to work it with my hair). My stylist is awesome, and I usually give her the go-ahead to do what she thinks will work. I have fine hair but LOTS of it. I loved the cut and it was just the change I needed. Now I’m liking that it’s growing back out. :)

      I was just thinking at book club that your hair looked great. Every once in a while, it’s good to change things up, isn’t it?

        Oh, thanks! It’s still in grow-out mode and needs trimmed and re-shaped, but good to know it looks good before I can make it in to the salon! :)

    Amber, I need to see a pic of your face to decide. I just have the 16 year old geek picture to go by and I *think* you’ve changed since then. 😉

    The bob. I’ll have to keep you in suspense a little longer. Thanks. Although I do like the last one too.
