Another hair post. Didn’t I just do a dramatic hair make-over a little over a year ago? Yes I did. Don’t I constantly rave about how much I love my short hair and I may never go back? Yes I do.
- I kind of miss having longer hair.
- Long hair is more feminine and I also miss that.
- Every single other slightly retro modcloth inspired blogger and their mom has the same short pixie haircut as I do.
- I worry short hair makes me look a bit older (and I am approaching the big 3-0 so age is becoming a sensitive issue!).
- It’s very important not to get stuck in a hair rut.
Here’s the thing. I do love this haircut. But, I am just feeling like changing it up again. Besides, this will be the perfect haircut for me when I am a mom someday (I’ll be a cute, trendy mom, fyi). In the meantime, I want a longer, more feminine, younger looking hairstyle again.
Unfortunately, to get to anything remotely longer, there is that awkward growing out phase (which, I suspect, is why so many women don’t go super short in the first place). More links to growing out pixie cuts with photos and tips are here and here. My hairstylist is on holiday at the moment so my hair is going to have a long time to grow before I see her next. I’ll think next time I see her we’ll have a discussion of growing it out but still keeping it looking cute.
Maybe I’ve been reading too many retro fashion blogs or something, because I’d love to get back to the days of these looks. I particularly love the updos and the finger waves. Not that my hair would ever look like that without a 24-7 stylist, of course. But still, I think change is good. Which look is your fave? Do you think I should grow it out, or is the pixie cut so amazing on me that I should keep it forever (I must admit it is very convenient when tramping…)? Yes, I do realize I could change the colour but do-you-have-any-idea-how-expensive-it-is-to-get-your-hair-dyed here? Not an option on my student budget!
*sigh* Hair! What a lot of effort!
