Above is a picture of the length and state of my hair at the moment. It's longer than it's been since ages, but the ends are also quite dry and in desperate need of a trim. I also haven't colored my hair in over half a year, so this is very close to my natural color by now, only the ends are very red-toned due to fading dye jobs. I made a hair appointment for next Tuesday and am quite excited. I wasn't too happy with my last haircut, so am going back to my old stylist (whose salon is just really out of the way for me but I don't want another mediocre cut.)
Here are a few pictures I'm going to bring in to discuss with him.
Ashley Benson at the Teen Choice Awards this year. This cut is so flattering and it looks like it would be a bit easier to manage as well.
I also quite like this style of Jennifer Love Hewitt, it looks very flattering. The only thing I'm really nervous about is cutting my bangs to that length again. My bangs (or fringe as it's know in the UK) are just very unruly and always do their own thing, and tend to spring up into frizzy curls. The longer they are, the more the weight pulls them straight, which is a lot easier for me to deal with.
The other issue I have is having to wash my hair more frequently, especially due to working out. I can go maximum 2 days without washing, because sweating during a work-out means that sweat also gets into the roots. Using dry shampoo works sometimes, but it also makes my crown hair look dull and gross, so I only like to use it when absolutely necessary.
I still have a couple days to find more inspiration pictures and to decide on something, and I'll let you know how it turns out after I get a cut!
