Why hello, 'Bob'.

Ah, what's a Thursday morning without an 80s sitcom reference? A reference which to this day makes it hard to say, or indeed write, the name of a certain haircut without a chuckle.

I am on the horns of a dilemma. Those of you who know me off here, know I have long red hair - but this is actually a recent development, borne of my desire to have a Chinese knot bun at my wedding. However, I am not a naturally long-hair person; my hair is fine and tricky to style, naturally brittle (made even worse with the red dye), I suffered from Trich when I was younger and my hair roots are weak, and I still pull absentmindedly in traffic to this day (something much easier to do on long hair) - and then I dry out my hair trying to curl, blow or product some life into the straggly mess! Not to mention the laziness factor. I had a bob for almost 15 years; I can get it straight, flicked, curled under or bouffey in 10 minutes flat. Long hair means more washing, treating, rolling, straightening- bleh. I'll spend time on my nails - my hair, nah.

So I am strongly considering a nice, chin length cut. What do people think? Shall I go for the chop?

  4. I say "yes" I love my bobbed haircut, even though my hair is very curly and it can be frizzy, it behaves much better now than ever before!!!! X

  5. Indeed - what is EVERY morning without a Black Adder reference? No one can say "Bob" like Lord Black Adder. Fact.

    I say go for it! You have such a pretty face - you can carry off any cut me love!

  6. If I wasn't a dyed-in-the-wool long hair I'd have that Debbie Harry blunt bob in an instant. Do it. x

  7. If you know a 'BOB' works for you, then go for it! You can always grow it back again if you don't like it. Its good to have a change for the season!

  8. Go for it! It's not like you'll be chopping it dramatically short, so you can always start to grow it again should you change your mind.

  10. Whatever you decide, you will look beautiful.

    Although I would say that I adore long hair, but that is just my mind, I'm not the one who has to wash it, brush it or untangle it!

  11. I never how too short except in the summer, up to my bra strap. My hair grows back fast though. I'm sure you will look great with shorter hair.

    Good Luck!
