Time for a change: the Bob

Recently, I have been a bit restless about my hair: I really wanted something different. I am sure most of you will recognize the feeling. Hair dye just doesn’t work for me: the color fades within weeks and it leaves my hair dry and damaged. The only alternative: a hair cut. When I looked at my Pinterest board, I noticed I had (unconsciously) been pinning a lot of longer bob styles. After a couple of weeks of debate, my hair has been long for the last decade or so, I finally took the plunge and visited the hair salon. What do you think?

Tijd voor wat nieuws met mijn haar. De laatste tijd had ik behoefte aan wat anders, jullie herkennen dat gevoel vast wel. Haarverf werk niet op mijn haar: de kleur vervaagt na een paar weken en het beschadigt mijn haar. Het enige alternatief is een knipbeurt. Toen ik mijn pinterest board bekeek, zag ik dat ik de laatste tijd onbewust allemaal langere bob stijlen had verzamelt. Na een paar weken twijfel, mijn haar is al tien jaar lang, ben ik toch naar de kapper gegaan. Wat vinden jullie?

      Thanks Lynne! It took me a little while to get used to it, but it is just such a fun hairstyle 🙂 Might go a bit shorter next time.

    Love it! My hair is at that in between length and I can’t decide if I should grow it out of cut it short again! Yours looks great though 🙂

      Thanks Angela. Always tricky, but you see so many great shoulder length cuts at the moment 🙂
      Good luck with deciding 🙂

    Looks great – suits you a lot! So that’s your natural hair colour? Really nice colour too. 🙂

      Thank you!
      Very close to my natural color, there is still a slight orange tone to the lower half of my hair as a result of the dye:(

        I think it blends in well though 🙂 It’s a nice feeling getting a good cut!

    Damn girl! It looks so great on you!! I’m glad you dove right in and went straight for the chop. I always feel so good after a haircut, despite being a baby about it.

      Thanks :D. I was so scared about it…the moment of panic in the chair when it has just been cut but is still wet was the worst. But I am glad I did it 🙂

        I totally know that feeling. I went from super long to a bob last year, and I had total sweaty palms the moment she pulled out the scissors. I’ll bet you’ll love how quick it’ll be to shower!

          Glad I am not the only one 🙂
          I look forward to washing it, it will probably dry so much quicker as well.

    I really like this cut on you !!!!

    Oh my goodness, Anne, the bob style looks stunning on you! I love it! 😀
    I remember the feeling when I had my long hair chopped off. My hair felt so healthy, thicker and I couldn’t stop touching it. 🙂
    That style suits you so well!
