Just a Trim

I have been operating under the assumption that I am getting a haircut next tuesday, but last night I realized that is actually TOMORROW. 

I have been waffling between several hair styles for a while now, and I just cannot make up my mind. I need a change, my hair has looked more or less the same since I was 15, but I am scared of a bad 'do.  I'd love to go short, but I have the unique ability to look just like Prince William when my hair is short.  This is not ideal.

This is what my hair looks like right now (I'm in the center)...

...meh.  It's okay, but after 10 years any hairstyle gets old.

Instead of my usual standby of simply hopping up in the chair and chirping "Just a trim, please", I'd like to go into this with a game plan.  And for that I need your help.  Here are a couple of option I thought might work with my hair.

We will call them 1, 2 and 3, from left to right. 

I don't like to spend a ton of time getting ready, so the third one might be out.  I just don't see myself taking the time to curl my hair regularly.  I don't have to wear my glasses all the time, can you even wear glasses and have bangs?  Or does that start to look like you are hiding behind a mask of some sort?

So...what do you think? 1, 2, 3, or just a trim?


  1. As far as bangs go, I like pic #1, the sweepy swoopy bangs are my favorite. I just chopped all of my hair off and got some swoopy bangs and love it. Though, I'm not big into curling hair, unless I use hot rollers. I mainly blow dry and straighten what needs straightened. But, I definitely think you could pull off bangs!

  2. I like #1 Bek...and I wear glasses a lot and have side bangs, I loove side bangs...they look pretty when hair is up or down.

  3. You definitely have the forehead shape for awesome bangs. I like #1, because you can either brush them down, or sweep them to the side, or part them a little. I'm jealous! I do not have the face for bangs. :(

  4. I think you would look so cute with bangs! I vote #1

  5. I vote #2! And yes, you can have bangs with glasses. While I wore mine in a tight roll (aka doodoo roll) in high school (ever the fashionista) with glasses, it can be done so much better!

  6. Sometimes if you trust your hairstylist, it's fun just to let them decide :)

  7. Have you heard of a body wave? My hair is really thin so it won't hold it, but maybe that would help give you the curly look without too much work!

  8. I think you'd look so cute with bangs! But definitely tell the hairdresser you want bangs that you DON'T have to spend a ton of time making look all swoopy and fancy. LOL I cut mine a while back and it looked AWESOME as I walked out of the salon. Then when I did it at home, with less time to fuss? Not so much. LOL

  9. I love #2! I wish my hair was wavy enough to do that...but it's too straight.
