Every now and then (read every few months) I get an itching for a new hairstyle. I have never understood people that have had the same hairstyles for years and years and years – how boring! I mean, it grows back – why are people so scared to change their hair? Not me – no, I am forever changing my hair. The colour, the style, almost everything about it. I changed hair stylists when I moved down here – which was probably a good thing as my lesbian Newtown hairdresser had taken things a bit too far with a shaver and a bad colour job the last time I saw her. My new man down here is amazing. And expensive. But amazing. And he has given me my first ever platinum do which I fear (much to my hair’s dismay) that I may want to keep forever.
Anyway. I am seeing him again this morning and am itching for a new do. Again. I know – who’s boring now? I still am undecided about just what kind of do I want to get and I won’t really know until we have a chat he does whatever he thinks he should do – that’s another thing – I always let the hairdresser do what they want to do. Which may or may not work in my favour. So, in the meantime I have been trawling the archives for inspiration and here are just a few of the do’s I have sported over the past 7 years or more…
: My wedding do – short, textured foiled bob. I did love this do – so easy to maintain and I even did my own hair on the big day. Win!
: My pregnant do – same cut except with a wee fringe
: First newborn do – grown out version of above with fringe grown out. This is probably the longest my hair ever gets to before I declare it too long and ready for a cut!
: Back to work dealing with a toddler do – this was my first ever undercut and I LOVED it. It was also like a cascaded come-what-may do where is was shorter on one side and longer on the other. This is what happens when you let hairdressers do what they want (much to my mothers dismay) but it rocked. I still stand by that – it rocked. And made me feel a little less dowdy Mum bob.
: Slightly shorter version of above do – with some darker foils too. I do love a pixie cut.
: With an undercut. I think Rob’s family thought I was bonkers when I got this one done.
: But it eventually grew out
: The final lesbian Newtown hairdresser cut – this one took things a little too far. The colour was off, the cut waaaay too short and I knew that my small country town wouldn’t be able to cope with hairstyles like this one.
: Platinum bob do – my current look and one I have been growing out since the last bad lesbian cut of August 2011 (yes it has taken that long). But now this is all long and I feel like it’s dragging me down – but the colour – how I love the colour!
I can’t wait to show you whatever we come up with tomorrow. Because whatever we decide one thing I know to be true is – it will grow back.
