I haven't had a haircut in over 3 months and even then, it was only a trim. This morning I woke up and had had it with my hair. My regular stylist is a very part-time schedule since having a baby late last year, so I opted to sneak in for an appointment with another girl at the salon this afternoon.
I originally thought I'd just want a couple of inches off the bottom, but asked in passing if maybe it could be closer to shoulder length. She advised that just above the shoulders would look better. Hmmm.... After a brief moment I told her to go for it. It's summer, it's hot and well, I could use a change.
For some reason, I thought it was just going to be above my shoulders with some soft layers in the front and in the back. Welllll, it was a little different than I expected. She actually cut my hair into a long-ish bob with soft layers up front. By the time I realized what what going on I couldn't do much to stop it. But suprisingly, I LOVE it! Even though it's the shortest I've ever had my hair, it's still not uncomfortably short or anything.
I walked out of the salon feeling so chic and polished. It was exactly what I needed even though I didn't know it at the time. Although, I must admit, this is usually how I wind up with a new hairstyle. I tell the stylist what I want in very vague terms, they do something that fits my vague description, but is totally different from what I envisioned it and I wind up loving it. :)
Here are a couple of pics from tonight after dinner:
