My new hair

Almost 2 weeks ago I had my hair cut. It was a big decision as it wasn't only a new hairstyle, but also meant I would have around 25 cm's of hair chopped off. The hairdresser asked 3 times if I was sure and yes, I was! So, she made a ponytail and lifted the scissors... Must admit I was kinda scared at that point!

After



















Somehow the red that still lays over my hair a bit shows way more in the first picture. I didn't dye my hair so it's not less reddish but it does pull too red in the first picture :). What do you think? Would you dare to chop off this length?

  2. Totally!  I've done it before and would definitely do it again because I like to donate it to organizations that make wigs for cancer (and other illnesses) patients!

  3. It looks lovely! I have the opposite problem. I haven't had my hair longer than my shoulders since I was six years old and every time i try and grow it I get fed up and chop it all off again. At the moment I'm trying to grow it because I'm off to Gambia in February and I want to be able to wear it up (so I don't have to take my hair straighteners - ridiculous I know :D) and it's SO hard! I'm like... IT'S ANNOYING ME! MUST CHOP IT OFF! I love your hair either way though. It's a beautiful colour :)

  4. I like it! New look suits you! When I was a bit younger i had my hair down to my butt and went in to get a hair cut and had it chopped off up to my ears!! It was a huge change. The hardest part was figuring out how much shampoo to use. The first time I used the same amount and it was just ridiculous.
    Enjoy the new do!

  7. That's what I am going to do too with my ponytail! Before she cut it I thought: even if I regret it, if I'll donate it'll make it worth so much more.

  8. Ooooh I can totally understand what you mean, but it is also kind of the reason I chopped it: I want to be able to wear it down without getting  too hot during summer, and I can still fit it in a ponytail :). Gambia, that's pretty awesome! How long will you be going?

    Thanks for your compliment!

  9. You look so cute :)
    I did this once, not so long ago. I went to the hairdresser and first he choped of a ponytail and then he said he wanted to continue slower with shortening. It was funny because when he chopped of the pony tail another girl went by and said "oh my god, this is so short!" and he replied "yes and we are not done yet" :D
    I did left them longer than you but it was still quite a change. I wasnt so in love with it but now I am kind of okay with it :)

  10. Thanks Else!

  11. Looks great on you, I have chopped my hair off shorter than this before it was such a big change but I loved it!

  12. I cut about 35 cm off last June and my shortest layer was up to my ear (it was a bob-style as well). Totally freaked me out but I donated my hair to be made into a wig for a cancer patients so I felt like I was doing someone else some good. :)

  13. I've been there before, but in the end I was ready and my hairdresser wasn't. =D She didn't want to cut my hair. I start to miss my hair every time I chop a large amount of them off. But they grow fast, so it's not really a problem.  My hair is really long at the time (below my waist) and I'll have to cut them sooner or later. I like your new hair style. I'd just make it a couple of cm shorter.

  14. Wauw! Wat cool zeg! Ik heb in september 2011 m'n haar helemaal afgeknipt. Zeker zo'n 20 tot 25 cm afgeknipt naar een schuine bob (wel nog iets korter dan jij hebt; aan de achterkant een beetje opgeknipt en aan de zijkanten wat langer) maar stoer hoor!

    Ik vind het altijd erg leuk als mensen zo'n grote metamorfose durven te ondergaan. Juist lekker pittig! En het staat je heel goed!

    Liefs

  15. Ohh, I love your hair, old and new style! It must feel SO weird now.

  16. Last year my hair was only slightly shorter than your "before" picture and I cut it into a pixie "boyish" cut! 1 month ago, I went back for an undercut to the left side of my head and pretty much shaved it no4. I'm going back this Saturday! Lol! I like your radical change, it was brave of you, especially if you've always had long hair! The angular bob is gorgeous, I would personally go a bit shorter at the back only to create more of a deep angle, but hey...I'm a bit freakish when it comes to hair :-)

  17. It looks great! This cut looks really nice on you! I cut my hair that short before, but I have curly hair so it was a little longer when I straightened it. I love how it's angular, it looks so chic and fabulous! :)

  18. Holy crap thats a big cut!  It's super cute, and must feel pounds lighter!  I always love how light my head feels when I cut a lot of length off of it.

  19. Love your new look! I've just recently chopped off my hair too! It was slightly longer than yours and now it's a bob. Although I quite like my hair short, I wish it were straighter and less unruly. :(

  20. Hi, I did the same in october. Had longer hairs than yours and i cut it shorter - bob style. Now I'm saving again. Hair was something that made me unique, now I look just like many other girls around their 30ties :)
    But you fit the hair style! :))))

  26. Woooow that's way more than I had cut off!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks girl :). I always want to be able to fit it in a ponytail so any shorter wouldn't be good. It;s nice to have fast growing hair so you can change often :).

  37. In 2007  I cut my hair just like yours. At first I was happy and got sooo many compliments.
    But now I really regret this! My hairs now just grow to my breasts and it takes years to grow them back!!!
    :(
    Excuse my English

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oooh it's bad you want to grow it out and it won't let you :(.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yes :( They break a lot (I have to wash my hair everyday and dry them, because they are soooo greasy) and so I think it will take years until they will be long as before...

  40. That's a big chop, but it's cute!!  You look great!

  41. So nice to finally see your pretty face because your nails looks so similar to my sisters that on some point I was sure you are her  ;)   I think two years ago I was in your situation, I cut my precious hair and ended with a shoulder length for a while, I really liked it, specially in summer but eventually I left them grow back and now they are long again like yours on first photo. I don't regret because they grow back and it's so fresh to have a new haircut which fits perfectly
