SLIDER

the long bob

I've been contemplating a short haircut for the longest time (I even wrote this post about it back in 2013), and last Friday I finally did it! It was a pretty spontaneous decision. I made the call after waking up, went to the salon that afternoon, and left with 9+ inches chopped off!

In my Saturday morning just-woke-up haze, I spent a few moments wondering where the h*ll all my hair had gone. My hair hasn't been this short since elementary school so I pretty much feel like a new person. At the end of the day I'm glad I finally went for it since I got to donate my hair to Pantene's beautiful lengths campaign. I won't go into too many details as I imagine many people have already heard about the campaign-- but basically you donate 8+ inches of hair to be made into free wigs for cancer patients. If you want to learn more about the program click here :)

Since this is all new to me, I haven't really figured out how to style it properly. I want that tousled "I just spent the day at the beach" look...but have yet to achieve it. On the plus side, it's the perfect excuse to try a bunch of new hair products! If you have any tips or product recommendations it would be much appreciated!

crop top: forever 21, skirt: asos, lips: revlon matte balm stain in sultry (applied very lightly)













On an unrelated note, if you've been waiting for an affordable button down denim mini skirt (that's a mouthful), forever 21 just released one on their site! I couldn't resist the less than $20 price tag and hastily ordered it in both colors (ignoring the fact I already have a similar blue one by asos...) I have yet to receive them but I've got high hopes! You can buy it here :)

  4. Congrats on the big chop! I must say the short hairdo looks great on you and glad it's going to a good cause.
    Also, saw that skirt on F21 and it immediately ended up in my cart(I haven't purchased it yet, waiting for the reviews) so when you receive it please let us curious ones know if it's poppin' or not, haha!

  6. So in love with your hair!! Love that gif. I didn't realise how long it used to be until I saw your profile picture in the corner. Well done on the donation! x

  7. Oh, you look great! It's awesome that your hair'll be donated to the campaign! I myself have been contemplating about cutting my hair for a while now (honestly, I'm just thinking about shaving it all off) but just haven't made the leap yet. I've had long hair for five years now and to just cut it all off would be such a blow I think, haha.

  8. I've heard of Locks of Love, but I actually didn't know anything about Pantene's Beautiful Lengths campaign! Anyways, loving your new look, and I'm glad that you found such a great cause to contribute to. I personally love growing my hair out to a considerable length and then chopping it off to my shoulders, which I do annually. Transformations are so much fun! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  10. your hair is really gone, wow :O I can't quite believe it when I look at your profile picture on the right. BUT short hair really suits you too so no worries at all. by the way, on June 12 I visited my hairdresser and my own hair is probably shorter than yours so actually I'm not very shocked since it seems to be a trend right now, haha. well and the lightness that comes with short hair is priceless, don't you think?

  15. Wooo! Yay for short hair! I use to have long hair, up till my waist then I chopped it into a long bob like yours until chopping it again a few weeks later to a pixie cut. I personally love short hair, it's so much easier to manage than long hair. And I think it'beautiful you donated to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths Campaign! That's amazing! <3

  26. Your hair looks great!! I love the new cut!! I use a Kevin Murphy beach spray (sorry I don't know exactly what it's called) but I really love it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your hair looks beautiful! I am always struggling with the decision to bob off my hair, but then never do it! But now that my hair has gotten SO long, I have decided to grow it a little longer and also donate it! lThen at least, if I regret my short hair, I will know that it went to a good cause at least, and not just the trash :) SO happy you were able to do the same!

  39. Oh man, that's a dramatic change! You def rock that pixie cut :) My one week stint with short hair has me agreeing with you, short hair is so much easier to manage than long hair.

    ReplyDelete
  40. :O Can't wait to see your short hair! Yes, short has has definitely been trending now-- probably cause like you said, it's so light! It's perfect for the hot, humid summer up ahead of us :)

  42. I totally feel you. I was very attached to my long hair and couldn't imagine myself without it. But like countless people have told me, it's just hair, it'll grow back! And even if you're not crazy about the cut, at least the hair went to a good cause :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yeah, with longer hair there are definitely more styling options. Can't wait to see how your lob comes out in September :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I will for sure let you know. It comes in tomorrow! There's already one positive review on the site so I've got my fingers crossed!
