It's been a sad, sad weekend in these parts: my lovely long hair is gone! That's right, after an attempt to trim it myself (I've always done this before without a hitch, but...) went terribly awry, and my attempts to even it out took away more and more hair, the only way I could look semi-normal was to just have it all hacked off into a sort of bob. (It's a bit longer than it looks in these pictures, I'm just not used to setting such short hair so it came out in really tight curls). I'm really quite heartbroken; even though I think short hair looks incredibly cute and I know it's more authentically vintage, I'm just a long-haired girl at heart.
Luckily I have pretty healthy, fast-growing hair, so I hope it grows back to a more comfortable length in the near future. And 'til then, I'm going to take full advantage of the new length: I can finally try my hand at things like pincurls and finger waves, and channel Marilyn Monroe, Clara Bow, Debbie Harry, and every '20s and '30s girl there ever was. I'm sure it'll feel much cooler through the summer months, too. So objectively, the pros outweigh the cons... I'm just a silly vain thing who feels sentimentally attached to my locks!
♥ I hope you had a lovely weekend! ♥
