The Cut

I’ve been craving a hair cut for over a year.  I’ve always had long hair and in my family (well my Mum really let’s be honest) long hair was a sign of beauty.  Pretty means long hair – the longer the better.  But I’ve noticed that I was wearing hats almost 100% of the time this past 12 months. Almost every post here has a hat on my head. Don’t get me wrong I love hats but they were covering up failed attempts to style my hair in a way that ‘felt like me.’  The odd good curly day or odd good long straight hair day wasn’t enough. 
So I cut it!

Bomber jacket: Zara (old). More light bombers from Asos or Revolve (look at this blue one).  Jeans: Zara (DIY ripped). Cool similar from Asos or these from Shopbop. Shoes: Steve Madden (love). Shades: Ray-Ban. Cuff: Hermes. Similar from Salvatore Ferragamo. Clutch: Zara (old).  Check below for more lookalikes. 
What’s weird is that I wasn’t freaking out after it was cut which I thought I would. In fact, I went back to the salon the next day for them to cut off more!! (they gave me a long bob on the first day). 
Like I told a friend who’s contemplating a big hair cut; you’ll know when it’s time because it’s a feeling inside that doesn’t leave.  It’s like a bug that you can’t shake – for months if not longer. 
That was me.  Operative word being was…
Will I grow it out again? Maybe. But until then I’m actually glad I did it!
