Lobbing It Off

Why is it that we always want the hairstyles we can't have? I was perfectly content with having long hair and even wanted it to grow longer, but ever since I got engaged and started "growing it for the wedding" (ahem, it didn't grow at all. silly hair.) all I've wanted to do is cut it off. I'm no stranger to short hair, in the past I had a pixie and went through several iterations of bobs. Now I can't get the lob (or long bob) out of my head. It feels so perfectly "now" and looks so fun to style. I know it's so cliche to cut your hair short post-wedding, but I just can't help myself. I saw my hair stylist for a little trim last weekend, and we decided next time I come in we're doing something fun - lob, here I come!

  2. I'm not even joking, I'm doing the same thing after my wedding! I'm so excited to get a LOB! I might even do it before... shhhhh!

  3. We're always on the same page lady! I am not engaged, nor do I expect to be anytime soon but I still have that "I should probably keep it long for...." feeling. But you know what? I haven't tried that lace braid hairstyle I have been saying I'm keeping it for, or any of the other hairstyles, and all of those formal events I go to where I'd have more styling options do not exist. I had the same conversation with my hair stylist the last time I was in. Now I'm just waiting for a reasonable amount of time to pass to go back and get the bob so I don't feel like I'm wasting money.

  5. I am currently going through the same struggle! I've had short hair in the past and I remember all too well how easy and effortless it was! It's so tempting!

  6. Cute hair inspiration. I'm growing my hair from a pixie (still, even after two years) and these styles are about where I'm at now. For once, I don't want to chop it again!

  7. Ugh I battle with this feeling all the time. For me, my long hair is easier to manage than the short lob. I have super thin hair and it just doesn't look the same as the voluminous wavy lob!



  8. I love this on other people but every time I cut my hair off I want my long hair back. It is like a part of my identity.

  10. I'm currently growing my hair out from a pixie cut and I canNOT wait until it is a bit below my shoulders!! Ah! I can't wait to see your hair get chopped off post wedding!! ;)
