So the most exciting thing about the Oscars for me this year was Giuliana Rancic’s chopped new do.
I have been struggling so much with my hair lately (i.e. it is in a top-knot almost every day). It is long ish (but not long enough to be Kardashian-esque), but has weird layers in it, it’s thick and unruly and while I want to call it boho chic inspired, it’s really more of a moppy mess.
Giuliana’s shoulder length cut felt fresh and free and fun and then when I was perusing my Pinterest beauty board for inspiration the other day, it turns out I have been pinning similar looks for months now while letting my hair grow out…clearly a sign.
So I think it’s time for a little change. My hair (with the exception of my bangs, it seems) tends to grow like weeds, so I never get really nervous about chopping it off – it will grow back.
I grabbed the pics above for inspiration. My texture is probably most similar to Gwyneth on the bottom left, but with the color of the top right. If I played up my natural curl (which I really should start doing), it would be similar to Ashley (Mary Kate?) Olsen in the middle. And I am kind of craving a sideswept bang a la Sofia’s on the top left again.
Whatever it is, it will be a mix of the above. And hopefully it will feel fresh and free and fun.
And hopefully it will also be better than the Oscars…shouldn’t be too hard 😉
