Stripes on Stripes

I've seen a lot of lovely ladies on Instagram get some fab new spring hairdos lately, and as I am overdue for a cut and highlights, I am kind of itching for a change. I'm not quite sure what I want to do though - I veer towards wanting another angled bob, but it was such a pain for me to get my hair to behave when it was short. And of course, every time I go shorter, I get a major case of regrets whenever I see a gal with long loose curls or long braids. Because I do that kind of stuff to my hair all the time ... not. Sigh. The grass is always greener on the other side, right?

  2. You are a pattern-mixing queen. The doubled-up stripes are great! I am overdue for a haircut too, but since I don't make any pretense at styling it, I am eager to chop it short and get it thinned a bit.

    1. My hair is a weak point for me since in it's natural state it's kind of frizzy but I don't really do a whole lot with it except try to tame it with product. I'm still looking for that miracle stylist who can give me a fab fuss-free cut!

  3. Love the double stripes!! I got my hair cut short back in December and I love it but I do miss being able to put my hair in a bun and I need to buy a smaller curling ironing so I can curl my hair again.

    1. I know what you mean - I did the bob and suddenly saw all these cute girls with their long ringlets and I had major hair envy (because I curl my hair all the time, right ... not). ;o)

  4. Cut it short with some long layers and just get some glam time hair extensions for when you're aching for long hair. They're about $100, the website will do a color match for you and they are awesome. They are clip-ins. I saw them on you tube and debated getting them but after growing my hair out it still didn't look good long, too fine. I cut it to my shoulders and just pop on the extensions when I need some length. their website has tutorials and everything! (I'm not sponsored by them either, I just love mine!)

    1. I never thought of extensions, I should look into that - does it blend into your own hair pretty well? Are they secure enough to stay on but not that secure that you can't remove them? I'm an extensions newb!

  5. One of these days, I am going to shop all you are wearing and replicate the look - I think you always nail it.
