The Long & Short Of It7:46 AM
Marianne FaithfulEver since high school, I have wanted long, pretty hair. Hair that can be curled, worn up, or braided into cool twists all over my head. I also wanted my hair to be every single color under the sun and did color it as many colors as I could. Note: Dye, especially box dye, damages your hair. Whatever, I was a reckless teenager!..and also a reckless 20-something. I finally stopped coloring it back in the fall of 2010. I have been trimming it on my own, and although I have a ton of split-ends, all of the virgin hair has grown in nicely. Back to the long hair, I have always wanted it. However, as of late, I cannot help but pine for shorter lengths. I blame the cute fashion-bloggers with their adorable locks that I see on a regular basis in the blogosphere. The bonus to short hair? Besides quicker showers and fast-styling? Kyle loves short hair. Not chin-length bobs, he really digs the pixie-cut. Which is awesome because even when I mention trimming my bangs at work the guys fearfully exclaim: "Don't cut your hair! Grow it long!". So what do I do? Thankfully, the dress I bought for my wedding is suited for longer hair. How? I have no idea, it just is. So, I am going to let it grow out until the wedding to see if long hair is everything I dreamed it would be. After September 30th, if I am still in love with short locks, I am going to get it professionally hacked. Until then, here is some short-hair inspiration:
