Beauty Without Fuss

Time for a new do ...

It's summer.  Allegedly.  And it's time for a hair cut.  I remain, as ever, terrified of getting my hair cut, in spite of a) being very good friends with one of the best colourists in the UK (aka Jack Howard) and b) being a regular member of the Creative Head Most Wanted Awards judging panel for the last four years!  

As a result, I haven't had my hair cut in eight months (I had to get it cut before it was permed last year), and I'm sick of the sight of it.  It is far, far, far too long.  Whilst it looked good at my wedding:

And can look good at other times too:

But mostly it's just tied up.  Out of the way.

There is, frankly, TOO MUCH HAIR, and I'm bored with it. I'll not mention that it is currently dryer than the bloody Kalahari too... There's four more months growth since these pics were taken, too ...

So, I'm going for the big chop tomorrow.  I've booked myself in with the lovely Darren at Webster Whiteman and I've been playing with some celeb pics on my Pinterest and Instagram, and these are my front-runner ideas so far (ignore the colours, it's the cuts I'm interested in):


Desperate not to look mumsy ... but I do need an easier to control style!  

Any styles you like?  Any of you also desperate to go for the big chop too?

  1. I love a long choppy bob- you get the ease of shorter hair but you can still tie it away from your face!
    Can't wait to see what you pick, I really want to cut my hair but I've been growing it for so long I just can't bring myself to do it haha

    Love Zoe x

    1. Thanks, Zoe! Results will be on the blog tomorrow xx

    1. Me too - lot of styling though, I imagine!

  3. I like the third picture the best, but they're all lovely! I'm due for a trim too, but as I've been growing mine out I'm putting it off. I've heard of a great curly hair stylist here in Melbourne, so I'll be booking in to see him soon. Hope you get a great enjoyable experience at the salon.

    1. Thanks - good luck to you too, let me know how it goes!

  4. Don't tempt me - my hair is waist length, I cut it myself, I have a pair of curtains, me and Mrs Pepperpot? Separated at birth I would say. I will be very interested to see what you go for, my hair is thinning and greying...oh dear perhaps I will just go and stick my head in a bucket and be done with it. But as for you - I too like the top one. xx

    1. I cut two inches off mine the other week in desperation ... so dry! I'm lucky the colour is good, but ... oh, it SO needs to come off!

  5. Yeah! I finally got around to revisiting my lovely hairdresser to get loads cut off. I definitely just can't be arsed with long hair. Thanks for the prompt!


Thanks, I love hearing from you!
