Hair today, gone tomorrow.

I have had, more or less, the same haircut for about 10 years. Shoulderlength, middle part, no bangs.

Until a few months ago (Well, in the spring) when I got some totally cute sideswept bangs:

Now, most people say I’m lucky, that I have really pretty hair. It’s ridiculously think, and people say that’s awesome too. Well, I’m here to tell you, it’s not. I am sick and tired of my hair. Inevitably, I go to the hairdresser, and they see my dilemma and chop and thin my hair out, but it’s so bloomin thick that in a month, it’s horrible again.

At home I’d finally found a stylist to do my hair (she’s the one who did the bangs) and that lasted for quite awhile. I went to one here in England, shortly after I arrived, to trim and thin out and get the bangs back but she didn’t really do a great job. *sigh*

It’s at the length now where it just…..lies there. Blech. It’s ridiculously thick and a pain to brush. My bangs are so long they no longer do the cute side sweep thing and now I’m back to just a middle part. with short bits on the side.


I know in the grand scheme of things, this is a minor problem. BUT let me tell you how disheartening it is to get a haircut and in a month, to be back to hating it because it’s just so thick and unmanageable.

I am also a wuss. I am too afraid to do something drastic because I think “Oh, god, what if I hate it and look horrible?” My instructions to the hairdresser are always the same: no straight bangs, leave enough to pull back into a ponytail.”

Well, let me tell you, it’s obviously not working anymore and I can’t bloomin’ take it. I have an appointment at 11:30 tomorrow and I am seriously considering going in there and letting her do whatever the heck she wants.

Any suggestions?

(P.S) if it looks horrid, don’t expect pics for awhile. :p


It’s settled. I want hair like this:

That is exactly the length I want. I told the girl who did my hair last time to go chin length and she didn’t. Tomorrow I shall sit in that chair until she does it!!!!!!


And maybe one day, in a parallel universe, I could have hair like this:

Can we all just agree that Mariska Hargitay must be an alien, or something?  She’s too ding dang pretty.

  1. inverted bob? That could look really cute! And it would take a while to grow back…Not quite long enough for a ponytail, though.

  2. I feel the same way! My hair is suuuper thick and gets weird when it reaches a certain length. I recently did a chop and brought in a picture of Jenny McCarthy – graduated bob with lots of layers. It’s been working pretty well for me so far!

    • That’s good to hear!

      I’m printing out a photo today and taking it in. It’s going to be chin length or maybe a teensy bit longer. I am not putting up with this anymore.

  3. Hi Kristen,

    I just saw your comment on my blog, Not Like the Picture – thank you! I hope you’re enjoying your time in the UK, and if you do make it to Manchester, you’ll have to let me know!

    Looking forward to seeing the new haircut 😉
