A New 'Do.

So, I've been debating it for a while, but last week I finally took the plunge and got the chop. It's been on Instagram since then so if you follow me on there you'll have seen it already, but I thought I'd pop it on here anyway. I've been going shorter and shorter for a while but kept leaving it to grow back, but really, long hair just isn't really me. I had a good few inches chopped off to just below the shoulder and I couldn't be happier with it.

I'm lucky enough that my boyfriend's sister is a hairdresser so I can call up and arrange a cut pretty sharpish, and she'll always advise me well and sort out any issues I've got. I went for very slightly below the shoulders so it doesn't flick out as much as it would if falling on the shoulders, and we took a bit of the heaviness out of my fringe which was getting a bit hard to style. I've had short hair most of my life but have had it long for a couple years now so I was a little worried I'd be completely incapable at styling it, but it's so easy and quick to do. For this style I blow-dried my fringe last night, left the rest to dry naturally and then used my GHDs to add a few waves in, so this took me under 2 minutes. I'm so happy I finally went for it, I kinda feel like myself again.



  1. Gorgeous! It's a very cute style on you :) I've been thinking of cutting my hair for a while now, and I probably will, closer to the end of the year though!

    Luuuuurve it! I agree with Abbie S, it looks bouncy and soft in the photo. I will cut my hair one day, but for now I'm too nervous, hahah!

    Much Love,

    Your new cut looks so nice, it is really flattering on you. I also recently had the chop. A little shorter than I initially wanted but Im growing to love it

  4. I love it! Your hair looks so healthy, and the fringe is lovely! x

    I've been debating this length too, but it wouldn't look as good as this thats for sure! It really suits you, it looks so clean and classy!
