I Want To Go Short


For the past two months, I've been thoroughly obsessed with the idea of cutting my hair shorter and going a tad lighter. My main hair inspirations? Alexa Chung and Hanneli Mustaparta. I've had my hair look the way it is right now for basically my entire life (other than those years in college when I had super thick, blunt bangs). With fall just around the corner, the idea of changing things up sounds really appealing to me. Plus, my thick hair will be so much easier to manage. Going short will be something pretty drastic for me, but I'm ready for it! I plan on making the change after NYFW. Tell me what you think. Should I really go for the cut? Well, I'll probably do it no matter what you all say, but still, I'd love to hear your thoughts. I'm so excited!! My mom's going to kill me, but it'll be worth it, I promise!

I'd typed a really long comment and then my internet connection timed out... the short of it (heh) is that you should cut it, I did a year ago and I think although in the beginning it was terrible (ONLY because I cut it myself), it's really nice and refreshing. I've been likened to Alexa Chung once because we have the same length hair and we're both hapa, which was really nice!

lostceremony said...

You do it first then I will...
I'm in the same position.
Even my mom cut her hair.

I don't know what to do! So I feel your reluctance. But I say do it. I just might... :)

Closet Hound said...

I love their hair cuts! My hair is basically the same length, but doesn't look quite as cool as it does on them. I've been contemplating getting it shorter, like a pixie cut

love alexa's cut! after having long hair for many years i decided to cut it 2 months ago and i'm SO glad i did! my 1 tip is to definitely put some layers in it for nice movement :)

Libby, Vintage Aplomb said...

I say go for it! I recently go my hair cut very short (above chin level!), and I love it! Plus, it's hair...it'll always grow back if you ever decide you want it long again.

alee said...

GOOO FOR IT! i used to have super long sort of wavy hair (sort of wavy sort of straight) like to my waist and in layers. and after a super hot summer (i live in Peru where the summer is hot and humid so my tad wavy hair became an awfully made afro) i cut it off! now its a bit shorter than olivia palermo but sort of the same style.
so i say: CUT IT OFF!

The Fancy Teacup said...

Go for it, girl! That way you will have tried it out and be complacent knowing that you have at least worked that option. You will look fabulous no matter what!

Anna said...

that alexa chung picture is the exact one i showed the hair stylist that cut my hair off. i was obsessed with that pic FOREVER. it came out exactly the way i wanted and i love it. lately, i've been wanting my long hair back though. :/

with that said, DO IT!

Angie said...

don't do it! at least i regret chopping it all off. it is very nice for summer but i'm already feeling cold without the extra layers. oh alexa, how we all want to be you.

Jackie said...

Do it! I think shorter will be a really fun change and a little lighter will go great with your skin tone. Good idea!
Plus, it's just hair and it'll grow back if you don't like it...
:-)

Joy said...

i think it would be really fun! i just cut all of my hair too!

Delmy said...

Like you, I had long hair all my life and ever since I cut it, I love it! And with your pretty face I'm sure it'll look great!

Johanna & Charles said...

I say go for it. If you decide it's not for you..it's just hair and it will grow back. I think it will look great on you :-)

alixrose said...

Love these examples. I hope you do it and I cant wait to see how it looks.

Tereza Anton said...

And I want to go long this season :).

L'art said...

It's just a hair, it's going to grow back, so why not embrace the change you want so much? :)

Pauline said...

Although cutting your long hair short can be a drastic change I think it would suit you so, so well.
I think Alexa's haircut and highlights would be perfect for you. I can totally picture you having this haircut :)
If you're really brave enough to cut your hair then nothing stands in your way :D

♥Run With Fashion♥ said...

LOL @ your mom's gonna kill u! yikes lol
Well it is your hair and your life, plus....hair grows back :D
So yeah you should do it, but, do it according to your face shape, and also, just to be on the safe side, maybe go medium length, just to see if you like the length, or if you want to go shorter. :)
Can't wait to see you with shorter hair :D

Nikita said...

I had the exact same thing, I've had long hair all my life and decided it was time for a change and cut it all of into a bob. I must say, I was hesitate in the beginning, but now that I'm used to it I'm happy I did it. I think it suits me way better and makes me more 'adult'. So I say: Go for it! It would look great on you :)

Go for it! But have it cut at a place who will donate to Locks of Love :) I've donated several times (and I'm only 16!) and it always makes me feel great afterwards. Not only because of the new style, but because I'm helping another child.

Ashley said...

I would say don't from my experience, but that's because it wasn't the right cut for my face shape. Butttt to be honest, I think a shoulder length cut would look really great on you!! I suggest cutting it shoulder length first and then go shorter if you want to. :)

alexsasha said...

Do it! :) it is not so short anyway. I am thinking about changing my hair too, maybe you are right, it is the fault of a new year? ;) Love to read your posts and You are gorgeous!

Helena said...

I love Alexa Chung hair!
I cut my last week and I love it, Alexa was my inspiration. In my opinion, it's the best cut that I ever had.
I think you should do it. I think you will look amazing(you look always amazing but changes are always good)!

Go for it! I have short hair myself and I love it
It's different from what most girls have.
It will suit your face & your personality I think.. DO IT!

PODSZEWKA said...

I have this haris style and I love it !!!

Sevan said...

love the photos! it makes me want to go short too but I cut it short 3 years ago and took me until this year to grow back! had to deal with split ends though haha so had to cut it a lot
I went short for the same reason too because I had it long for basically my entire life but i personally wouldn't go through that again lol
I'm sure it would look amazing though!

Leah said...

I've cut my hair a few month ago and I regret it soooo much, miss my long hair, think before ;)

Isabel said...

Hola!

I like your new hairdo a lot! I've been thinking about going short with ombré too but I'm a bit scared. I've never done anything like that ot my hair (I've always had my hair long with no change of colour nor highlights, etc) so I'd really like to go for this change... And yeah, I think my mom will kill a 100% sure!

¡Saludos!

magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, MERUJA OWO. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and family problem and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.i recommend MERUJA OWO for any kind of help you want.
his email address is: nativedoctor101@live.com
if you want to ask me anything my e-mail is: jannet_madeson@yahoo.com
Kind Regards,
