Hair- To Cut or Not To Cut?

Well the day is approaching. Tomorrow I am going to see my niece to get my hair cut. Question is, how much to cut? I’ve been letting my hair grow wild for about 3 years now. My bangs have grown out all the way to my shoulders and the rest is half way down my back. I like long hair. Its easy to deal with. Lately though, all I seem to do is ponytail it. Its getting too hot on the back of my neck. My hair is very fine, but there is lots of it.

So, the plan is to lighten the load. I have been searching and looking at pictures of haircuts and I think I have decided on what I will be doing. I’m going to get a “shag”. I layered cut but still keep the length. I am not sure what to do with my bangs. I like that they are out of my eyes now, but it would look funny to have them long and the rest layered.

Here are some pics I found of what I am thinking of doing….

Sample 1sample 2sample 3sample 4I like all of these. I’m still looking. I think out of them all the first one is what I want. My hair is so straight I will end up looking like the last pic which is ok too.

I guess I’ll see what happens tomorrow! Maybe I’ll go really short again!

Colored my Hair…again

Yup I know… I have colored it again. I did the purple streaks back on Jan.30. Since then the purple started to wash out and I recolored it with a light brown, which didn`t take very well. So it was time to do it again. This time I went darker to get rid of all the blond-orange that was coming through.

So that is what it looks like now.It`s a bit dark, but I like it. I used Natural Match 5N by Lòreal. It didn`t get rid of all the color in the back. I guess it will have to grow out. You can see a little bit of difference in the front but not like before. I`m happy with it.

My Hair

For the past 2 years I have been letting my hair grow. Just getting it trimmed when needed. Not every 6 weeks like the salons want you to. That is just a waste of money for me. If I had a certain style then I would probably do it to keep it looking nice. Since mine is straight and only layered the last 6inches its not necessary.

Well, its gotten long. I have let my bangs grow out and they reach just past my shoulders now. The rest is about half way down my back at Bra strap level. I’m trying to decide if I just cut some length off or just let it grow longer. I know I want to add the purple color back in. I really liked how it looked.

Maybe I need a different style? A different cut? Having long hair is easy to take care of, but its also very hot on the neck. I end up having it in a ponytail all the time.  I’ve been looking at different types of updo’s that I can do easily, but there aren’t that many. I do know that I don’t want to cut my bangs. I like having them long and out of my face.

Hmmm…what to do?
