The Shortcut or the Long Route?

May 17, 2010

I’m going to be making an appointment to see with my super rad hair stylist this weekend. I need a trim, but I’m back to debating about whether to chop my hair like Anja Rubik’s Balmain runway look. I’d go with a choppy, razor ends cut that would be shorter than my grown out bangs in the above photo. I’d love the lower maintenance (though I don’t do much with my hair now as it’s been finding its way to high ponytails and buns on a regular basis), and I’m jonesing for a change. What do you think?

    Hello. I hope this finds you doing well. I’ve been on a blogging hiatus since the beginning of the year, so it’s been quite some time since I’ve been around to visit some blogs. I’m back from my break now. I wanted to make sure to visit your blog. I enjoyed checking out the latest posts on your blog. Great job. I’m back blogging now myself. I hope you’ll take a look at what I’m doing. Thanks. Take care. Have a great week.

    Mmmh so Chère Mel, Anja Rubik’s look obviously seems provided of an “high content of Trendy Appeal” . . . BUT anyway I deeply think that your natural “Radiant-ness” easily transcends any kind of hairstyle question my Dear !!!!
    J’espère que tu vas Bien.

    Amicalement, Antoine

    I think it’s adorable and will great with your features. Do it! And what’s the worst that could happen? It’s hair, it will grow back 😉

  6. May 17, 2010 2:05 pm

    Do it! Hair will always grow back. Don’t be scurrrred. I think you will totally rock the short do!

    OOO Anja’s hair is gorgeous!! You should totally go for that cut except that sometimes shorter hair isnt lower maintenance. When my hair was shorter, I always felt the need to have to blow dry/straighten because it wasn’t enough to put up in a quicky pony tail when I was lazy.

    that alley looks super cool! you’re so pretty! love that flannel

  27. May 19, 2010 10:59 am

    Honestly, I’ve personally been wavering between long and short hair recently… in fact, I think you got me started a few months back with that Anja post! Anyway, it’s no easy decision, but this is what I’ve come to learn: hair grows back! If you want change, go for it! It won’t take long to grow back if you absolutely hate it, but you’ll at least have the satisfaction of knowing you tried.
    Can’t wait to see you today and talk about this a bit more 🙂


  28. May 19, 2010 12:36 pm

    For change! Love your romper!

    I’m pretty sure you could rock that hair if you wanted to.
