‘Is it time for a change?’
Over the past few months, all I have seen across social media is people taking the plunge and opting for a LOB: the long bob.
They all look great, right? But not all of us have a stylist on a day-to-day basis – or ever, for that matter. In reality, this look can be left looking lifeless and short (and that’s way worse than looking lifeless and long, obviously).
But there comes a time in all our lives when we decide it’s time for a new look. I currently face this very issue. With a haircut booked for tomorrow afternoon, I now have to decide exactly what style I will be leaving the salon with. What makes it worse is that, after four years of growing my hair out after killing it with bleach, my friends have FINALLY started to comment on the length of my hair – without me having to hint either. I know right?! The dream.
Look how long it is!😭😭
So now, after weeks of building the courage to have the big chop, I find myself doubting my decision. I mean, how bad would it be to just keep it the same? With my birthday only a week away, I risk the chance of hating my hair while turning 23 – an age I am not mentally prepared for, by the way.
Do I take the plunge, or keep it safe? I can’t help but feel there is a deeper meaning behind my decision – the curse of thinking like a literature student.
If anyone has recently got the chop, please give me some insight on your bravery! Do you regret it? Do you love it. Help me, please!
