Sometimes I get confused.
When looking at online sources or magazines for potential new hair styles, I sometimes think that by getting the same haircut as a celebrity or model, that I will look EXACTLY like that celebrity or model. The delusion was a bit thicker in my younger years and that is why I ended up with misguided hair styles and/or colors at times. For example:
And I was PROBABLY trying to look like this:
Or sometimes I have grown my hair out super long to try to get what I now refer to as that voluminous Adele look…a look that my hair will never accommodate for. Such is life, I suppose!
I’ve gotten a bit better about this and now tend to at least make sure the hairstyle I’m drooling over is displayed on someone with a rounder face…or a “moon face” as a dear old friend once termed it (it’s cool – she has one, too!).
That being said, I am getting my hair cut tomorrow and am feeling the pull to do something a little different than what I’ve been doing just to have something fresh going on. New ‘do, new you! However, with that pull comes ridiculous ideas. Like bangs.
Exhibit A: Jennifer Lawrence
Exhibit B: Zooey Deschanel
Exhibit C: The Last Time I had Legitimate Bangs
Other styles that I am considering that are probably not achievable without a significant amount of work, product, and selling parts of my soul to the devil:
So here’s the thing. I write all this now knowing full well that there is a 50/50 chance of me doing something a bit ballsier/playing it safe when I get to the salon tomorrow. And I will continue to look at pictures tonight and tomorrow morning but most likely I’m going to go for a long, angled bob.
But in my heart of hearts, I will always want my hair to look like this:
What do YOU think? What style would you like me to try? What style have YOU always wanted to try but keep yourself from doing?
