At the beginning of summer I considered cutting my hair short, but knowing I’d only have time for a quick shower (not much fussing in the bathroom time and lots of pool time), I decided to go the ponytail route for the time being and sought out some inspiration options: Cute Hairstyles for Long Hair. I’ve loved being able to throw it back in a messy bun while it was still wet. And wearing a fish tail braid on the side is super fun. I was pretty versatile in my styles at first, but now…this is what it looks like every single day. Hmm…I think it’s time to go for a style again.
After seeing My Best Friend’s Wedding in 1997, I sported this hair style for several years. Then, I started cutting it myself. For awhile I went with the pony tail trick where you put your hair in a pony tail way on top of your head and then pull the hair up and cut the ends for natural layers. Then I decided I was ready for a blunt cut and since then, that’s been my thing…I trim the ends and layer a bit of side sweep bangs in my bathroom. (My color is treated at a salon, because of an incident right before my wedding that you don’t even want to know).
The other day, I was watching the Olympics, the news came on and a few minutes later, I looked up and saw Jenny Garth being interviewed. First thought, “I haven’t seen her in a long time. Oh my gosh, she looks real cute!” Her hair was long & wispy in the front, tucked behind her ears at the side and heavily layered in the back. Very feminine and “very current for 2012.”
That got me thinking. I checked with my constant hair guru, Jennifer Aniston to see what she was up to lately in the world of hair. Her hair is cut just above the shoulders and is sorta blunt. A little longer in the front, slightly stacked in the back. From what I can tell, the long bob is a huge (and forever) trend in hair for 2012.
A long bob with a little curl is super cute on Tori Spelling. Maybe sometimes I’d take the time to play with it like this…love it!
Cameron Diaz (who by the way makes me laugh…she gets her hair cut by a friend in her friend’s kitchen with a towel wrapped around her neck…the reason her hair is so short right now, her friend made a mistake. seriously. they were both in tears…hahaha. i love that). I sure wish mistakes could turn out this good in my world…it worked for Instyle Magazine, she made the cover recently. “She cut my hair really short,” Diaz says. “But then I thought, ‘No, I really like this!’ It’s freeing, and I feel so much lighter.” Maybe that’s what I need a little “freeing?” Perhaps really soon!?!?
So what’s your favorite look for Fall 2012?! How short is too short? Friends with short hair…is it freeing? How old can you sport long hair? I think I’m ready to go for it. Any last minute words of advice!?!? Thanks friends! XO, Aimee
