New Hair Before & After!! Long Concave Bob

Today I went to the hairdressers, I wasn't going for my usual half head highlights and trim....oh no, I was going in for a complete restyle!!
After mentioning on my Facebook status yesterday I was having my hair done the next day, my comments went mad, all my friends commented on what I should have done! Most people saying I should have it chopped off.
My very close friend Becky suggested I go for a long concave bob. I trust her completely that she would want what's best for me and truly thought it would suit me, so that was it, I'd made up my mind!!

Before - awful pic!

Before - Not so awful

I have had my hair long since I was around 17, so over 10 years. My hair has always been my comfort blanket, literally actually as I play with it when I'm tired or down. Anyway I was trying to be metaphorical, in that if I'm having a fugly day I can pretty much rely on my hair to look OK. Until I started to realise it has no style, it hangs and it actually pretty damn boring! So after the comments and chatting to Mum, who thought it was a great idea, I was so excited. Until I mentioned it to Graeme, who loves my hair long! I was gutted by his reaction but I still really fancied a change!...


So today arrived, my appointment was at 12.30, I felt so nervous all morning, I couldn't eat (not a bad thing as I'm now on Slimming World). Although once I sat in the chair I felt surprisingly calm, Lindsey (the best hairdresser & good friend) worked her magic, chopping a good 6 inches, thining, layering! The entire time I was grinning, shocked at how much I loved what she was doing! I think I expected to leave the salon crying!!....

After!!

......Anyway I am so happy with the cut, I feel so fabulous, sophisticated. Then Leon, the very cool indie type male hairdresser, said it's very 'On trend', as quite a few celebs such as Fearne Cotton and Olivia Palermo have gone for the long bob recently!
