Hello and happy February!! I can't believe its the second month of 2015 already.. It feels like Christmas was only yesterday!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I've recently had a bit of a hair-overhaul.. I went for a short pixie cut a couple of Thursdays ago and I am SO pleased with the result!!
I'd been thinking about chopping all my hair off since before the wedding, but was too scared to do it. One day I thought "enough is enough!" and called up Wildilocks to book an appointment for that week.
My hairdresser was super excited that I was going for such a dramatic change, which definitely helped quell my nerves a little! I've never had my hair this short, but I've seen pictures of my Mum when she was younger with a pixie so I figured it couldn't look too bad.
In fact, this might be one of my favourite hairstyles yet! It's SO easy to do in the mornings, I just wet it in the shower, comb into place and it dries in about 10 minutes and looks perfect.. and to think of all the time I used to spend day and night slaving over my hair!
It's also meant I've been busting out the big earrings a lot more lately, which is awesome because I have a fair collection but always felt they were kind of wasted with longer hair. Bright lipstick and cat-eyes are also daily requirements now to give more of a feminine look - I'm excited to play with different coloured lipsticks, maybe even some coloured eyeshadow (craaaazy!)
I haven't done much in the way of styling it so far, just left it as-is, but I will definitely be experimenting with more styles very soon.
Has anyone else taken the plunge and chopped off all their hair? What were/are your favourite styles/things to do with it while it was short? Any tips or recommendations are very welcome!
