The Perfect Bob

This almost makes me want to chop my hair off again. Almost.

  • […] feel like fall/winter=darker, but is that expected?  Help me, Internet!  I’m sort of loving this.  The shape is nice but it’s not too short and it obviously would work with waves.  […]

    I have similar hair to yours and, after years of recovering from a bad cut by another stylist, decided I trusted my hairstylist go to town. THIS is the cut she gave me with nuance and personality! I love it! http://www.graphpaperheart.com/ is awesome!

    Don’t cut your hair! The hair you have now is the obvious “after” not the “before” … stick with perfect. Its what you alreday have. This bob will take you a year to undo….

    AHHHH!!!! I recently cut nine inches off my hair for this EXACT bob! I had a few days of ‘hair blues’ for the long hair, but mostly have been thrilled with the new do. Seeing this post makes me smile with the decision I made!!!

    I don’t have her bone structure but I LOVE that cut! And I’m a diehard long hair lady

    I had this haircut about 2 years ago and liked it at the time. I still like my longer hair, tho.

    I always feel like I “should” cut my hair, but every time I do I can’t wait for it to grow back out again. I say enjoy your long hair for a while before you get the urge to cut it. Remember how you felt last year?

    THIS IS IT!! I have a haircut scheduled for Friday and I will be showing her this picture. Every time I get any variation of a bob I wind up looking like Tom Petty. Fingers crossed this time is different.

    I’ve had this look for the majority of my adolescence and adulthood. I like to change my hair every so often-I don’t know how some can have the same look year after year. I have a lot of hair (I’m half-asian), and when I get it cut, hairstylists either don’t take the time to break it up so that when I curl it, it doesn’t come out looking like the photo. Looking at the photo, it looks like the waves are done away from the face, and it’s slightly layered. Le. Sigh. Also, thinking of it, can be done with long hair too. ; )
