It’s come to the time where something needs to be done with my hair. I tend only to get my hair cut 2-4 times a year, as it really doesn’t grow that fast, and it’s in pretty good condition. But at least once a year I do a really big ‘change’, whether it be colour, or cut.
My hair is currently past my shoulders, a dullish chocolate brown colour, and whilst I can keep up the front shaping myself with little trims every now and again, the back of my hair is in need of some serious shaping.
I have come to the conclusion, that with the way I like to get my hair cut my hair is too fine to have it too long at the back. The very bottom either just curls back up under the rest of my hair, or it looks stringy and doesn’t quite bouffant the way the rest of my hair does. Solution? Keep it shorter!
So this is the hair chart my hairdresser and I use. It’s from the 1940’s hairstyle book. My hair at the back is currently sitting at about 8″ long. And given the U shape that the back is cut in, that’s where I have my problem.
So I’m thinking of coming back to a Baby or a Middy Cut. Not only does it give my hair a nice rounded back profile without the big U shape, but it should allow my natural curl to revitalise a little, and get it’s kick back.
The front will be long enough to pin back into rolls, or marcel wave, and as usual, I won’t get bangs cut, because on those days where I scrunch’n’go, frizzy fringes are always a bad look.
As for colour, well, red is in order! I’ve said before that red is my go-to colour when I want something done colourwise. I’ve been black, blonde and almost every natural colour in between (and some unnatural too), but I always gravitate towards red when I want ‘happy’ hair.
This is the red I’m considering. A cherry type of red that will be a bit of a pop without being too over the top for every day. The only thing that I’m unsure of, is whether to go red ALL over, or do a split like this, with dark brown underneath.
I have two weeks to ponder it, and hope you will give your thoughts as to ‘all over’ or ‘split’.
Either way, cherry red….. here I come!
